I'm a big, big fan of U2 and to catch a show would be a dream come true. There's a rumor going around that U2 will have an Asian tour this year, or next. And the Philippines is on the list. Though I would love to see them perform in Manila, I pray they would stay away until we sort things out. As you may know, my country is in a bad way at the moment. Somehow a murderous mad man got himself elected as president. If it's true that they have a Manila date planned, please help our country by staying away. The band supports Amnesty International, so maybe this missive is unnecessary. James Taylor backed out from his Manila concert last January, My love to the band! Cheers!
