BONO has spoken about being chased down the street by German anarchists wielding placards shouting "Make Bono history!"
The U2 frontman said he was confronted by the protesters during the G8 summit.
He said: "Even as I was running for my life, I thought it was a pretty good line."
He said in the same week he was booed on stage in Arusha, Tanzania at the TED conference which he had campaigned to have in Arusha.
The U2 star was also in attendance at the influential Clinton Global Initiative conference held in New York yesterday.
Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore invited the U2 frontman to drop into his constituency office to discuss the Government's tax policy following Bono's defence of U2's decision to pay tax offshore.
Bono rejected the accusation that it was hypocritical for him to criticise the Government's economic strategy.
"U2 is in total harmony with our Government's philosophy. At the heart of the Irish economy has always been the philosophy of tax competitiveness.
"On the cranky left that is very annoying, I can see that. But that is why Ireland has stayed afloat."
