Bono on stage at P8 concert today

Just to make sure you know... the P8 concert in Germany will begin at 1430 CET (Central European Time) and can be watched live here 

This is what u2.com posted in the site's news about it yesterday:


In Germany for the G8

Die Toten Hosen, Die Fantastischen Vier and Michael Mittermeier, all old friends of U2, are on the bill with Bono and Bob Geldof at tomorrow's Make Poverty History show in Rostock.

The show, aimed at raising awareness of the poorest countries as G8 leaders meet in Heiligendamm, features some of the best known names in German music - including some old friends of U2.

Punk band Die Toten Hosen supported U2 when ZOOTV hit Germany in 1993.

Hip hop group Die Fantastischen Vier opened the show when Popmart toured Germany in the summer of 1997.

Comedian Michael Mittermeier has a reputation as 'Germany’s most famous U2 fan'. He was pulled up on stage when U2 played Munich in 1987 - and opened the show for the Elevation stop in Berlin in 2001.

Edge lmao

(no subject)

If you're not familiar with things like cat_macros and ICanHasCheezburger.com then you need to be. But in a gist, they're cat photos (usually, dogs, mice, walruses and other animals make appearences), with humourous, badly spelled captions. The captions often (but not always) stick to certain "themes". They're an internet sensation, and have branched out into other themes.

So when I saw that there was a thread of "LOL80s" macros, featuring loads of 80s musicians, I was sure there would be some U2 in there, and was not disappointed. There were two actually. The first was a JT-era photo of Edge, complete with hat, reading "INVISIBLE HAIRLINE" ('invisible' is one of the often used macro themes), but it was the second that really made me laugh:

Also, while I'm here, if any of you missed it, Bono was on NightLine last night. I haven't actually watched it myself yet, because I've been so busy, but I uploaded it here.
