Rock n Roll Update

Get out of the way, football, U2 coming through!

Bono – before he realised how important he is

U2

In modern day terms, Bono is the closest thing to Jesus. In that he’s got longish hair, he spends his downtime healing the planet, and if there’s trading to be done in a football stadium, if the mood takes him, he’ll put a bloody stop to it, thanks.

All of which leads extremely blasphemously to today’s big U2/Juventus news.

Apparently, Juve’s third round Europa League match, which could – rather fittingly – be against the Dublin team, Shamrock Rovers, has been moved 300km up the road to Modena, just so that U2 can play one of their little pop concerts in the Stadio Olimpico.

According to the important gigging news website, Gigwise, Shamrock Rovers chairman Jonathan Roche said this:

“Apparently U2 have the stadium booked as part of their European tour so the venue is being moved to Modena no matter who progresses to play Juventus.”

Nice one, Bone-oh!

    “In modern day terms, Bono is the closest thing to Jesus…”

    No he isnt. he’s a cunt.

    “In that he’s got longish hair, he spends his downtime healing the planet…”

    No he doesnt, he spends his downtime buying sunglasses and acting like a cunt.

    “and if there’s trading to be done in a football stadium, if the mood takes him, he’ll put a bloody stop to it, thanks.”

    Now I’m no theological expert, but when the fuck did Jesus step a be-sandaled foot into a football stadium? And Bono’s a cunt.

    Bono steps his shoes with 3 inch lifts – and he’s still only 5’4″ – and he’s a cunt.

    Get your facts right U2 is 3 times the size that Juventus will ever be, Id rather go see the greatest band in the world perform not their little pop show, but a MAJOR Rock & Roll Show, they have performed to almost 1 billion people this last year, and Juventus are entertaining their faithful in the Europa League.
    Next time you post an article, get your facts right:
    - Bono Doesn’t have long hair any longer
    -Their show isn’t small, its a 360 claw and has played to almost 1 billion people in Europe & The Us alone.
    -U2 booked that stadium before Juventus had their little EL match to play their.

    Stop being ignorant & post a factual post.
    Clearly uneducated.
