Bono on Live 8 Edinburgh! @ 10:39 pm

splishysplashy:
It's the Live 8 gig in Edinburgh tonight and Bono was on stage a wee while ago, introducing a video message recorded by Nelson Mandela and giving his usual passionate speech. He was at Gleneagles earlier with the leaders as well. Then he was just on my TV an even shorter while ago (looking gorge, though that is a separate issue!) being interviewed - in amongst the seriousness he said that in U2 you can do anything you want and not get fired - except play golf!

They mentioned him again so I'm not sure if he's on again later - will let you know if he is!

Bono was on with The Corrs singing When the Stars Go Blue, he gave Andrea a yellow rose and they slow danced at the end of the song! Awww! I do wish I was her for that little few minutes, lol! Really nice.

I find Andrea Corr really nauseating so I was disappointed Bono ended up performing with them. However, I was amused to notice Bono also appeared to be flirting with Jim Corr at one point!!

I loved Bono's speeches and the interview, but oh how I waved my fist at the BBC when they cut off Bono's second speech halfway through, just so they could interview Travis! Grrrr!
