"I slept beside my father with the sound of the audience ringing in my ears during his dying days." — Bono, on being at his dad's bedside before he died

Bono''s still the One

IRISH rockers U2 received a rapturous welcome from a
capacity crowd at Glasgow's SECC last night for the first of a
two-night run.

The hastily arranged dates, confirmed just days after the
death of lead singer Bono's father Bob Hewson, were
announced last Thursday and sold out within three hours.

"They said we couldn't fit the Elevation tour in here, but I
think it fits just fine," Bono told last night's audience.

Tonight's show at the SECC will be the last UK date of the
current tour.
