Get out of the way, football, U2 coming through!
Bono – before he realised how important he is
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!
