[Fans] will pay $100 to see U2, and U2 is not worth $100. -- Bono, 1987

Bono makes surprise appearance at Ukraine conference


Bono took advantage of a couple off days on the E+I tour schedule to make a quick stop Saturday at a current events conference in Ukraine. He appeared on the final day of the 3-day YES (Yalta European Strategy) conference, his first time ever in the country. Bono did a sit-down interview with journalist Fareed Zakaria that lasted about an hour that covered many of the humanitarian issues U2 fans are already familiar with.

In the video below, Bono enters at about the 1:30 mark, and the conversation begins at about the 3:00 mark. You'll have to listen closely since there's a translator speaking over the video.
