Bono: Losing Weight?
« on: July 31, 2017, 12:27:56 AM »
The past couple of week, I just did a massive personal passion project of doing a multi-cam YouTube mix of the opening night of the JT Tour 2017 in Vancouver, using the awesome Empress Valley audio IEM-audience mix.  For a shameless plug, here it is:

(but if you check my channel, I also uploaded the songs individually as I finished them)

...anyway, all that just means that I've been staring at Bono's face from May 12 in BC Place Vancouver for hours and hours and hours mixing, remixing, and putting all those different camera angles together.

Then I saw two things quite recently:  Zane Lowe interview, and also a recent Instagram post of the band about to enter the stage in the most recent Amsterdam gig.

Now, I just want to ask: Is it just me, or has Bono been losing weight since opening night?  I actually think he is looking better now!

Cheers,

J

I wouldn't doubt it.  Performance is an athletic endeavor in itself.  Bono never seems to take off his layers of clothing.  He's probably lost a fair amount of weight from sweating alone.

this is called the Elvis workout.  Don't think it holds up with time.

When I saw Bono up close and personal in CHI he looked super trim and healthy.

This is way better than the usual threads about how chubby Bono is.

What a question...Bono is attractive no matter what weight he has...how do people care about weight of a person like Bono...I think he's still attractive when he's 80 and has no hair left and sitting in a wheelchair...it's Bono. He has a very beautiful soul and a very beautiful spirit, so why do you care about his weight???

Oh well ok...I'm not a native speaker..some things I don't get  :-[
Btw: I think he's lovely with that little bit "extra" Bono...who likes men with a
sixpack? He's perfect the way he is...and, for god's sake, he is 57 now!!!
He looks damn cool the way he dresses and he is unbelievable sexy for a man in that age!!!

Sorry - I agreed but was too lazy to post a long response.  Bono looks well and hope that he still looks good in 20 years time - with faculties (!) -  grow old gracefully...
