He is ripping pages out of a book, does anyone know what book?  Anyone get any of these in the audience? Not sure if it is when he is singing "Raised by Wolves"?  Anyone know?

I actually caught half of the book that Bono ripped up and tossed into the crowd last night (6/3/2015) at the Forum.  It is "The Master and Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov.  I was curious if there is any meaning to why this book or if it was just some random book.

Shortly after this paper fell from the ceiling but I didn't catch any of these but they looked to be all blank.

I think it's a different book every night - according to wikipedia for the book you mentioned - "The story concerns a visit by the Devil to the fervently atheistic Soviet Union. Many critics consider it to be one of the best novels of the 20th century, as well as the foremost of Soviet satires."

Alice in Wonderland, Psalms and Oscar Wilde. Bono must be a literature freak! ;)

I caught a page from The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. Now I have to read it, all 14,000 lines!

My husband caught "Paradise Lost" last night. Maybe I need a life, but it was one of the most exciting things ever.

He should rip up pages of the Koran and see if Muslims are as tolerant of that as Christians and Jews are of him ripping up Psalms.

I don't think he ripped up the Psalms. A lot of pages of Psalms dropped like confetti.

Denver 1 had Psalms and Alice in Wonderland. The lady next to me caught Alice and my friend next to me caught the Psalms.

Another great, positive, upbeat post from Bono's Titanium Elbow!
