Bono in Washington Tomorrow?

Here's a brief news item from The Washington Times:

Breakfast to Have Interfaith Flavor
February 1, 2006

Julia Duin
The Washington Times


Tomorrow's National Prayer Breakfast, traditionally an evangelical Christian event, will be a demonstration of interfaith worship.

Sen. Norm Coleman, Minnesota Republican, is the first Jewish co-chairman, and Jordan's King Abdullah, a Muslim, will attend the breakfast and give a major luncheon speech a few hours later.

Several persons close to the event organizers say the keynote speaker will be the rock star Bono, founder of the Irish band U2. A spokesman for Bono, an outspoken Christian and backer of humanitarian causes, did not return calls yesterday.

"U2log.com has learnt that Bono is likely to speak at the Meteor Awards at The Point in Dublin, on Thursday 2nd February 2006. The singer won’t be present physically, but he has recorded a speech introducing Bob Geldof."

I guess even Bono can't be in two places at once, despite some evidence to the contrary. (Or maybe that was his double? )

This means that Bono wont be at the awards. He is recording a speech for that award for Bob G. So he should be able to make the Prayer Breakfast in DC in that case. Hence the quote" The singer won't be present physically, but he has recorded a speech introducing Bob Geldof."

Gotcha. They didn't specify that he had already recorded the speech for Geldof. I got it now. Thanks Biff.

Bono at National Prayer Breakfast

Bono will be speaking at this morning's National Prayer Breakfast. It will be broadcast live on CSPAN or CSPAN2 at 8am this morning. I believe it will be streaming online from what I can see on their website. Here is the link: http://www.c-span.org/

Just click on the media player that you want to use at the right of the page once you click the 'watch' button on the main page.


Enjoy..
