Iíve seen for myself, thereís no end to grief, thatís how I know, and why I need to know that there is no end to love

This was such an amazing tribute. We covered it pretty thoroughly in this podcast episode:

Joshua Tree 2019 Tour in Sydney: November 23, 1997 vs. November 22, 2019

U2's The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 landed in Sydney, Australia for two nights, starting on November 22, 2019, the 22nd anniversary of Michael Hutchence's death. Michael Hutchence, who was the lead singer of INXS and a good friend of U2's, died in Sydney on November 22, 1997. We were at the U2 show on November 23, 1997 in San Antonio, Texas and have raw and emotional memories from that night and the proceeding concert in Atlanta, Georgia. Tune in as we reminisce about November 1997 on the PopMart tour and compare the similarities to November 2019 in Sydney, Australia. And of course, more questions over whiskey and cake for Bono!

Were they really that good of friends?  I almost feel like Bono shoehorns himself into relevance and after Hutchence died, all of a sudden Bono talks about his great friend and takes over some of the tracks on his posthumous solo album.  Before i didn't even know they knew each other.

Yes. They were very good friends. Michael also had a house in the south of France and they would spend a lot of time together. Also, Bono and the band is very good friends with Helena Christensen who was Michaelís girlfriend for a long time.

Happy to help!

To have seen him in person those days in 1997, this was raw grief. No shoehorning here.

There was a story in the guardian back in the 90s about bono and Michael hutchence skinny dipping with a female guardian reporter in eze. The reporter asked if she could write about it, and Bono agreed on the condition that she reported that he was larger than Michael  ;D
