Actually he was given a misdemeanor charge "malicious mischief" and summoned to appear in court a few weeks later. The charges were dropped once he paid for the statue he painted to be cleaned and the sculptor came forward and said that what Bono did was in keeping with the spirit of the sculptors work. He was never actually arrested.

Hello,
I read that he wasn't arrested and was doing the graffiti work to prove a point. I read that the law was pressing down on graffiti artists in San Francisco with some new law. Bono opposed that and sometime later the law was abolished by a new governing party.

Sicy - Those are awesome articles!
I remember I was in school and my girlfriend and I had heard about it on the way to school and we were too fricken scared to cut school and go! I still kick myself!
I was at the JT concert a few nights after that happened (11/15/1987)(werent you there too Sicy?) and at this show Bono brought onstage a bunch of artists and they were able to create a giant mural in back of the stage, and he told the crowd he wanted to show Mayor Feinstein the difference between art work and graffiti
Cool stuff!

Didn't Bono actually let the sculpture come onstage and spray paint on their set?

I could dig up the info in the U2 tour book I guess, but I am too lazy.

A week later for the 11-15-87 Oakland show Bono had a local graffiti artist Rene Castro with a bunch of other street artists paint the backdrop to the stage while they were playing the show.

Also, as stated before. Bono was never actually arrested. They promptly left town after the concert for Vancouver where they played the next night. By the time he had returned for the Oakland shows, the charges had been dropped.
