Bono joined Bruce Springsteen last evening in Croke Park to belt out a cover of Patti Smith’s ‘Because the Night’. This video takes us back more than 10 years ago when The Boss was asked to do the honours and introduce the 4 piece from Dublin into the US Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Stick with it! Bruce has the timing of a comic and knows how to play the crowd even without his band. And obviously knows that U2 have a great sense of humour. His ‘take the money’ Apple routine is a classic.
(btw the synch is on the original)
…. and as proof of the long respect and friendship between the two rock legends Bono did the honours for Bruce and his speech wasn’t have bad either.
