Hurray! U2 To Take Break From Music! Oh No! That Means Bono Can Play Politician Again!
In other words, it is safe to open your ears.
Bono, Mr G9, is waving fare-thee-well to U2’s 110-date monster tour and for the time being, he’s had enough of life on the road.
He’s promised that the band won’t be back ‘for a while’.
Such is Bono’s outrageous attention seeking, even The Edge (real name, The Edge) had a dig at him from the stage of some dreary award ceremony that we’re absolutely bitter about the lack of invite.
The Edge mocked:
“I am a middle child. I am in a band with Bono. If there are any members of the print media here, please hack into my phone.”
Of course, with U2 taking a break, this gives The Edge chance to focus on the condo-shaped looming environmental disaster that he’s setting up in Miami and, naturally, Bono will be out and about playing politician again while watching his huge reserves of money grow in off-shore bank accounts, all the while weeping over the plight of broke-ass Ireland.
