The Edge: "The last time I cried was listening to that song.
It was a song Bono started on the last record about my daughter Holly
. He's her godfather. The lyric became more universal. About being young and full of doubt about yourself. He probably won't agree, but I think it has connotations for Bono, looking back to when he was 20."

U2 Has Luck Of The Irish For Biggest Ireland Gig

SLANE, Ireland (Reuters) - It was a beautiful day, and night too, as Irish supergroup U2 brought its world tour back home on Saturday for an emotion-charged concert before its biggest audience ever in Ireland. "Thank you so much for coming out," lead singer Bono, whose real name is Paul Hewson, told 80,000 adoring fans packed into a huge field beside Slane Castle on the Boyne River north of Dublin, under clear night skies. The mostly young audience went wild as the supergroup launched into some of its biggest hits, including "It's a Beautiful Day," "End of the World" and the political "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" about killings in Northern Ireland in 1972.

The most poignant moment came when
Bono
sang "Kite," a song he has dedicated to his father, Bob Hewson
, a retired postal clerk who died on Tuesday after a long illness.

"I want to thank God for taking my old man away from his sickness and his tired old body and giving him a new one," Bono said before launching into the ballad, which includes the lyrics:
"Who's to know when the time has come around/ Don't want to see you cry/I know this is not goodbye."

 

He may have wrote in for his daughters but it seems more poignant as a song for his father
.
See you in Vegas Toddv!!

 

 

Good find....I guess I got that idea from the Chicago DVD....I know Kite was written for his girls, yet during Elevation tour, it turned into asong for his Father....

 

Songs changed over time....amazing....

 

See you in Vegas....I can't wait....Make that fan meet-up....
