"The essence of U2 is not something that happened in 1983 or 1993. It includes from 1980 to 2000. You know, all that you can't leave behind, yes, to me the best bit of U2." — Bono

Comments: While talking with journalist Dorian Lynskey, Bono goes into St. Peter's Chapel (also known as Chapelle de Saint Pierre des Pecheurs) and sings "Amazing Grace" with a group of American tourists. The scene is described in Lynskey's article this way:

A warm afternoon in the Côte d'Azur village of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Yachts bob lazily in the bay, diners dawdle al fresco, and Bono, nursing a hangover behind mirrored Ray-Bans, is playing tour guide. He wants to show me the Chapelle de Saint Pierre des Pecheurs, a tiny 12th-century chapel with 1950s murals by Jean Cocteau.

Inside the chapel, he encounters a group of grey-haired American choristers. He spontaneously invites them to sing Amazing Grace with him, to their initial bemusement. Afterwards, one man asks, "Are you a well-known musician? Should we know who you are?"

Lynskey confirmed for us that this occurred on October 1, 2014.
