VIDEO: Bono & The Edge Accept the Palm Springs Film Festival Visionary Award

@U2, January 07, 2014
By: Matt McGee

 

If you read our latest OTR column, you saw me mention that the kind folks handling media requests for the Palm Springs International Film Festival (PSIFF) shared some official photos and video with us from Saturday night. That's when Bono and The Edge attended the gala awards ceremony to collect the Sonny Bono Visionary Award.

The photos have been available for viewing on our Flickr account for a couple days, and now we've finally finished editing the video. It runs a little under four minutes, and includes clips from Bono and Edge arriving, speaking on the red carpet and giving their acceptance speeches. (By the way, the banter from about 2:06 to 2:18 is fantastic!)

Great thanks to Getty Images and the folks at PSIFF for letting @U2 share this video with you!
