Bono employs person to drive his bed around on tour

Bono takes his own bed on tour with him.

The U2 rocker has played hundreds of shows worldwide with his band, but as he suffers from back problems he decided on his last tour to have the bed from his home in Ireland transported to all of the locations he was visiting.

A popular tour manager from the United States, Stuart Ross, told the Sun newspaper: "I know somebody whose job it was to drive Bono's bed from hotel to hotel on the last tour. Bono wanted to sleep in his own bed every night.

"So instead of being able to fly him, I assume, back to Dublin, there was a bed that was in a Ryder (rental) truck and they loaded it into the hotel."

The 'With or Without You' hitmaker's back problems have been so serious in the past that he even had to undergo surgery in 2010 which resulted in him and his bandmates - The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr. - cancelling their headline set at the Glastonbury festival in Somerset, England.

U2 will perform their Oscar nominated single 'Ordinary Love' at the Academy Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles tomorrow.

Metallica: Metallica’s Rider states “BACON: VERY IMPORTANT THAT BACON BE AVAILABLE AT EVERY MEAL AND DURING DAY”

Bacon? I thought it was Foo Fighters who requested that. Either way, bacon RULES. 

 

The strangest request I've heard is Axl Rose's request for a 'square melon'...
