Bono vs Noel - lads on tour?!
« on: September 25, 2017, 03:00:20 PM »
Sheesh - I don't know if I can believe his (it's Noel's side of the story!) but it makes for an entertaining read (and flies in the face of 'Bono's brush with mortality', if it's related to his health). 
Is this tabloid trash?

I knew he loved to party, but this sounds like Bono is an alcoholic

Probably not an alcoholic or he wouldn't have been able to perform consistently all these years.  My guess is that Noel is exaggerating.

Meh, it was the hometown gig and they planned it so there'd be two off-days before the next one. Sign me up.

everything Noel says should be taken with a grain of salt, his stories i mean. that's why he's so funny.

There was a day when i would easily have hacked all the partying with u2. But, truth is, im so out of the loop these days, as far as partying goes, that i have become a bit of a lightweight.

This sounds like I'm trash talking but I am good friends with someone who was for quite a few years part of U2s touring "team" - he went around the world with them a few times and he remains close to a number of key people in the U2 camp today.

The stories he tells - especially about Bono - I think it is fair to say that stories like this, even accounting for Noel's liberal pinching of salt are not too far from the truth.

I'm sure that I have heard a similar story from a few years ago where Bono could outdrink Noel (as told by Noel again, I think).  I agree with the pinch of salt but wouldn't be surprised if there was a big after show party.  Not so sure about fitting 75 people round a table at his house though (would you really invite the President of Ireland for a finger buffet?).  More likely that 75 people would fit in the Irish President's gaff in Phoenix Park.
