Sian/Edges daughter...correct..

OK, how about this one, speaking of cancer:

Concerned that it might be causing cancers in Ireland, U2 unsuccessfully campaigned the British government in the 1990's to shut down BLANK

The Sellafield nuclear power plant?

Along the lines of activism... U2 joined The Police, Bryan Adams, Peter Gabriel, and others to support BLANK on the Conspiracy of Hope tour.

Yeah, sorry for not being specific enough! But I was looking for Amnesty International.

On the Amnesty thing, yes it was called conspiracy of hope.

OK: The Sarajevo 1997 concert nearly didn't go ahead for a lot of political reasons, but lastly, because Bono lost his BLANK.

(Enduring Chill already said it was the Conspiracy of Hope tour)

The Sarajevo 1997 concert nearly didn't go ahead for a lot of political reasons, but lastly, because Bono lost his voice. (still a great show)

BLANK said about U2: "Will anyone remember U2 in 30 years? I doubt it. [...] Bono and his band are so egocentric - the more you jump around, the bigger your hat is, the more people listen to your music. The only important thing is to sell and make money."

George Harrison (18 years ago, so U2 has 12 more years before their anonymity kicks in !)

OK, if we're going down that road:

"I have never seen a U2 fan. I have never seen anyone with a U2 shirt or been around someone's house that has a F***ing U2 record. Where do their fans f***ing come from? Where are they? I reckon they buy them" - BLANK

That was Liam Gallagher. :-\

I got something more positive:
While Bono has his One-campaign and is an activist to "make poverty history" The Edge is an ambassador for BLANK.

Music Rising

In 1985, Bono made a trip to BLANK, that latter inspired the lyrics to Where The Streets Have No Name.

I didn't think of Music Rising (which is of course also a correct answer) but of BLANK. (Sorry, Meximofo)
