Anyone know where I can get a scarf like the one Bono was wearing today? It was flipping sweet!

Check the Edun site.

Found it - thanks!

I wish we could have seen a bit more Larry footage...there was a cameraman right next to him, but there were only two or so Larry shots! :-\

We all know how the Edge is on fire yeah? Here's a shocking new discovery!

Quote
EXCLUSIVE!

U2's The Edge linked to global warming / Article by the Real Fake Bono (VladtheFlyingLemon)

U2s guitarist The Edge has been suspected as the main offender in global warming, frontman Bono explains, "Ever since we have known the Edge, we always knew he was on fire, ever since our first release, U2-3"

"As we got older and the more award winning albums we released, Edge's fire really became noticeable more than ever during Achtung Baby, I mean ZOMG! The Fly was really the first known song when we noticed the Edge had reached a whole new atmosphere in terms of temperature. I mean, we brought a thermometer to our first ZOO TV show and little did we recognise Edges temperature was rising by the minute"

"11 years after that the Edges temperature was rising rapidly during Bomb, we called it "Punk Rock From Venus", I mean, you know Venus is such a hot planet, with its gases and all, so we thought Edge matched the description. He really let it out on that record, he was at his fiery best, especially his riff on Vertigo, we thought he couldn't get any hotter than that, but believe it or not we were wrong"

After Bomb and the Vertigo tour, The Edge was investigated by numerous scientists. He was asked for his temperature to be tested, the thermometer melted so the scientists came to the conclusion that the Edge had reached 1000 degrees celsius thus being the main offender in global warning"

Bono continues, "When we were shooting the video for Q magazine we realised the Edge was burning out of control and he had to be stopped, so I grabbed a fire extinguisher and turned it on but little did I realise it spiralled out of control and fumes erupted into the air, it reached Edge but unfortunately he was immune to it"

In conclusion, nobody knows if that guitar loving, beanie wearing, bearded man will ever cool down, is there a chance? even a small chance? The simple answer is no.

Happy to hear the new single and happy to be on the happy thread.   :)  I agree with you all.  I can't take the negativity anymore.  Don't get sucked in anthony.  The concert was beautiful.  I watched with my kids and it brought a tear to my eye at the end, when Beyonce sang "America the Beautiful" and everyone was singing with their hands over their hearts.  Do people in other countries think we're just really sappy or what?  I am honestly moved by stuff like that.  I get teary sometimes when a high-school kid sings the national anthem at a local football game.   :'(  Garth Brooks is a fun performer to watch, isn't he?  He has a little of the passion and connection with people that Bono has.  He looks like he's just enjoying the hell out of himself.  I'm not a fan of country music, but I bet his concerts are a blast.  Keep up the happy thoughts, people! 

(btw, you crack me up, Vlad!   :D)

I agree about Garth Brooks, I'm not a fan of country music at all, but he did a great job of getting the crowd fired up - previous performers had trouble doing that.  I think that the choir helped.
