Bono and Chris Martin honor Anton Corbijn

@U2, November 28, 2011
By: Liseth Meijer

 

Bono was in Amsterdam this afternoon, where he and Chris Martin honored photographer Anton Corbijn, who received a lifetime achievement award from a Dutch culture funding organization. 

Bono and Chris Martin performed with the Metropole Orchestra, and Bono recited work by late Dutch artist Herman Brood. 

Corbijn received the award for being an important role model to his generation's popular culture and an international example for photographers, designers and art directors.

UPDATE: We've since learned that Bono sang "One" with the Metropole Orchestra and recited Herman Brood's "Get Lost." You can watch a video of the "One" performance on Facebook, and watch the "Get Lost" recital below.
