Bono Surprises Charity Guests With Gig

U2 stars BONO and THE EDGE played at an unannounced warm-up act for a charity concert in London on Friday (23Nov07). The duo stunned the 250 guests at the fundraiser for Mencap, a charity that campaigns for equal rights for children and adults with learning disabilities. Bono joked with the audience, "Don't tell Larry (Mullen) and Adam (Clayton) we've done this," after performing four of the band's hit tracks.

I think it is wonderfull that Bono has done this charity gig without a lot of 'fuss and fanfare,' which in recent years has always made the sort of event he has attended, with the likes of Geldof look contrived---like old has-beens clutching at straws--a little like models who no longer model embracing'humanitarian'causes.We all know that people who really do humanitarian work go un-noticed and certainly don't have 3 houses.So it is really refreshing at last to see someone who has nodded towards charity,making 'a possibly for the first time, genuine effort' at helping a worthy cause.
