Bono's new car

He bought a Tesla. Personally, knowing how Bono drives, he should have got a driverless Google car.

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Might be a bit safer than a bicycle for him. Maybe.

The Model S has some advanced driver assist technology. I guess it’s a step in the right direction for B.

i have no idea what i just read, this story meanders more than mine do  :o

U2 frontman Bono can be shown off showcasing his latest new holiday wheels as one certain Elon Musk fan Twitter took to social media recently to post this photo recently of Bono with his newest Tesla Model S. You can view it below. U2 member ‘threatened’ at party, was Bono wasted?

In other news regarding U2 and Bono, fans recently took to social media to discuss the legacy and impact of one of the group’s most classic albums – Achtung Baby. Bono ‘begging’ for prayers was just revealed.

One fan said: “I have been a fan of U2 since the “Joshua Tree” days, but even though I do have most of U2’s standard albums, I do not have the b-sides and remixes, except those that came with the single “One”. So to me, Disc 2 of this set is like a brand new album, and what an album it is! It is very diverse musically, and it shows how far U2 was willing to go in 1990-1991 in order to search their souls and to experiment, for the purpose of making their next album as excellent as possible. The effect of Disc 2 is that it makes me feel that I have been transported back to 1991 to discover a U2 album that I never knew existed. I was leery of forking over more than $20 for another copy of “Achtung Baby”, a superb album but one which I already possessed on vinyl, cassette and CD. But one listen to Disc 2 told me that my money was well spent. I don’t dislike any of the tracks, and I actually prefer a couple of the remixes to the tracks found on the original album.”

Bono was recently ‘heckled’ by U2 fans for an angry remark. The fan finished up by saying: “To address the other issues, the sound is great, and I have no problem with the packaging. I’m just happy to have this music. All in all, I am very pleased with the set.”

I know right! The articles are absolute crap, and the headlines are clickbait and nothing to do with the story at all. Like the one where Bono was "threatened"... no mention of it in the article at all. And the Julian Lennon photo, the headline reads, "Lennon family call out Bono." So here I was thinking Bono had pissed off the Lennons, but again, fake headline for clickbait. The authors have english names too (Brett Buchanan). Surely it's an AI writing this dribble?
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

One of the articles said they are re-released a 2 disc Achtung Baby or something like that,  so naturally i read it,  and it made no sense either.  Just like the two you mention.  ::) FAKE NEWS  :o

The “spends ridiculous money on a car” headline is also pretty absurd. A Tesla S is by no means cheap for the average person, but it’s practically an economy car compared to what people at Bono’s level usually drive. It comes in at a lot less than your average S-class Mercedes, never mind the Bentley, Ferrari, and Rolls that someone of his standing would usually have.

Is this fake news? That photo doesn't look that recent.
I can imagine Bono with a Tesla. Thing is, is he still driving or does he now have a driver?

One life; But we're not the same

He's had a Tesla for years, even before the first Irish dealer opened. He got if from UK stock and exported it. This looks like his second model but don't think it's that new. I've seen pictures only of him being driven.

Bono Menaced In Road Rage Incident!
Article describes Bono's leisurely drive through the Irish countryside.
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”
