Whatís going on with Bono?
« on: September 06, 2018, 07:07:21 PM »
Now I know he said it was the smoke, and now theyíve removed most- if not all- of the smoke from the show. So is he allergic to the smoke chemical or whatever? But I think thereís more to it than just that. For the past 2 shows, Bono hasnít spoken whenever he meets fans. And I literally mean he isnít talking to fans when signing and autographing. In the past when heís had a sore throat he wouldnít talk when greeting, but I donít know about now. Is there more to whatís going on?

Obviously all anyone can do is speculate.  What is the point of doing that?

Probably conserving his vocal capacity.

Yes I think itís safe to assume heís on vocal rest.

We donít know what caused the problem, smoke was just Bonoís guess at the time.

It seemed like there was a lot of smoke at that Berlin show, which he may have inhaled too much of. It was most likely a one-time thing, not an ongoing problem.

But thatís what Iím saying, it is an ongoing problem. All smoke has been removed from the show. And Bono still isnít talking to fans when he greets them.

Could be just a precaution, or the issue may have been one-time (eg smoke) but taking time to heal.

Unless you think he's lip synching everything he seems to be on the mend.

If you were Bono, you'd probably not mess around with vocal restrictions if the doc recommends it, even if it's just precautionary.

He's fine.

There was a set list change up yesterday (the rotating 4th song) and he was out meeting and greeting fans outside the hotel (yes and he was speaking a little bit).

Thanks for the update. Good to know he is feeling better.

No problem

I was going off video footage and setlists.  I wasn't there.  I was going on the appearance that he is probably much better.  The smoke machines have largely gone since Berlin 2.

He was speaking at length at a conference in Ukraine the other day so there is a strong likelihood that he is much better.

I'm not party to what goes on in his life...I'm not Ali (or anyone else close to him) in disguise lurking on this forum!

Iím sure he talks more than is recommended most of the time, maybe heís finally doing what heís supposed to?  I have to talk for my job and if anything irritates my throat it can take weeks to get back to normal
