Bono yells at someone. Why?

I have a bootleg of the 10/1/89 concert concert at the Osaka Castle Hall in Japan, and during the band's cover of "People Get Ready" Bono tears into one of the front-row audience members, saying, "Listen guy: One more piece of shit out of you and you're out of here. I don't care if you paid the front row...I'm telling you, I'm telling him...leave him for one more, and he's fucking out of here." Can anyone shed some light on what the heck was going on there?

I think the guy was pushing other people around. Bono says before the song that "at a U2 concert people do not push each other around. I dont care if you paid for the front row, or the back row, we're all the same in here, including the band. The only difference is that you all made us all very rich"

Bono did something similar on the Sydney ZOO TV video too. I think it was during Until the End of the World, and it almost seems as if he's threatening to bite someone in the front row! That gave me a shock the first time I saw it! He certainly gets his temper up at times when he's on stage!

he did a lot worse during Springhill Mining Disaster in Dublin 87.
Just as the song is climaxing, Bono Yells "Stop it, Stop it, Bring him back here", Bring him back here, now if he's misbehaving, throw him out, but throw him out gently, If he's not misbehaving , he's ok, leave him in hear" Bono then starts singing again and the band get back into it. Sadly this was during one of Bono's most extraordinary vocal moments ever in a most unlikely song...he just stopped and yelled at the security guys.
Fortunatly the crowd was cheering Bono during this.

This was from the concert on 27th June 87

Aww... that wasn't his temper there.. he was just being dramatic and trying to "challenge" the audience.

On the Boston DVD, some jerk throws something at Bono, narrowly missing his left eye, and receives a two-finger salute in return.

What is it with these audience bozos? How'd they like it if they were up on stage, performing their hearts out, and some creep threw something at them?!

Well, he shouldn't have apologized! That idiot could have killed Bono! He was crazy. He claimed he wrote the songs on the Joshua Tree and demanded his money! He grabbed Bono in a headlock when he came up into the stands of the GC seats in Minn. Bono HAD to punch the guy to free himself. Security took the psycho away. He was no young guy either. I've seen the pic of this. He was an older guy, balding, grey hair, old man style glasses.

Has anyone seen the the Mexico Popmart concert, like in Until the End of the World (I think) when he's in the crowd and he's coming out, he looks pissed, like yelling at someone and ready to punch him out. Or is he just excited?? Has anyone notice that?

Which song is this on? I think I remember when someone threw something. But who gave the two-finger salute? Bono or the "fan"?

In response to Bunbury, wasn't that when the asshole wouldn't quit shining laser pointers in his eyes and he told him to f off?

Bono of course. The two finger salute is the Irish bird, a backwards peace sign which means the same as the American "finger." I have seen a still of this somewhere. I love the look on Bono's face!

I think I read somewhere that an audience member kept aiming a laser pointer at him.

No kidding. I've been to so many shows where the band couldn't care less who is getting pounded on.

Bono is cool. I'd pay good money to see him punch out a jerk.
