Bono was asked to sing anthem for mcgregor
« on: August 25, 2017, 03:08:59 PM »
According to the Irish independent, Dana White asked Bono to sing the Irish anthem for Conor mcgregor at tomorrow night's fight. Apparently he was interested but there's a wedding he has to attend at the weekend.

Knowing Bono, He prob would have sang 'you're the best thing' to promote the album instead  ;D

Bono is far too 'safe' and far too invested in America loving him to be seen in America singing the Irish anthem.

More chance he would sing the American anthem IMO.

Sting played at the AFL Grand Final in Australia last year, and played a new song to promote his new album... you could hear crickets.

He could sing both anthems to appeal to the masses. I know that's a criticism that you have of the band at the moment.

Actually, we love our Irish here.  Bono singing the Irish anthem would most likely be viewed as quaint.

I wonder how many of the 'irish' in America would even know a word of the Irish national anthem to be honest...

The wedding was real-- McGuiness' daughter got married.  Bono is a huge boxing fan and might have done it, but family won out.
