"Had GA for the first time ever, saw the show the night before (had club level seats behind the stage), and got to meet all 4 lads before the show as well as FINALLY get Adam's signature across my "Property of Clayton" t-shirt!"
"I realised that you can't be a passive pacifist, you must be an aggressive pacifist. I had to make a strong statement about what was happening, and 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' is that statement."
- Bono, 1984
Bono made his first live solo appearance on April 30, 1989, at a fundraising event in the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, singing his own musical adaptations of two poems by William Butler Yeats.
