Bono & The Edge Accept Palm Springs Film Festival Award

@U2, January 04, 2014
By: Matt McGee

 

As expected, Bono and The Edge represented the band as U2 was honored with the Sonny Bono Visionary Award Saturday night at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. The Edge spoke first (and spoke briefly) when U2 was called to the stage, telling the audience that the band is honored to be the first musicians to accept an award that's usually given to film directors. Bono then spoke for a few minutes, praising some of the actors and actresses in the audience for their activism and talking about the fight against AIDS in Africa, among other things.

There are a number of photos of the event available on Zimbio. Try the Bono photostream and the Edge photostream.

On the way in to the awards, Bono and Edge also spoke to a number of media outlets -- you'll probably see them on Entertainment Tonight and other TV shows in the coming days. You can also watch this short video from the Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper:

As always, we'll add more to this post as needed.
