Orlando reviews U2

April 11, 2005

by Orlando Bloom/Radio 1

Orlando Bloom is one of the first A list U2 fans to catch their tour and he's given us a review.

Bono confessed that they were sounding so bad in rehearsals the tour was under threat just weeks before it kicked off in California.

But Orlando is having none of it. He's giving their Vertigo tour a big thumbs up after watching them in LA and reckons the tour has an important message:

"Bono, who's such a remarkable man, had a screen which projected the 1948 UN declaration of human rights."

"The first six chapters of it all said, basically that we are a fellowship, a brotherhood, each man is equal.

"What an amazing message to play at a cool, huge concert where he's just rocked out and given everyone a great show."

"And it was cool to see it, the only way Bono knows how."

"He had a bandage on his head which said 'Jew, Christian...' ie. we're all on the same planet as one, at some point we have to realise we're all connected as a family."
