"There should be no worship of the instruments. I mean Edge only takes his guitar out on formal occasions. He hardly sleeps with it, or polishes it."

Bono and Bill Gates are planning to go to the World Cup in Brazil

Journalist Mônica Bergamo reports today in the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo that Bono and Bill Gates are planning to go to the World Cup in Brazil. We know they have been friends for a long time and both share the same passion for humanitarian work.

Bono has already talked about attending the World Cup, when he was with with the former president Lula in a meeting last year in London. They talked about the ONE Campaign and Brazilian projects to fight poverty. Bono said he would be in June in Brazil to watch the first match.

The same article also says Bono helped some children from Africa and India get a visa for the Street Child World Cup, which will happen next week in Rio de Janeiro. They had some difficulties so Bono got in contact with Brazilian politicians. Bono and Street Child United's organizers are friends. And just like it was reported before, Larry Mullen Jr. is also giving his support to this project.
