U2 lead singer Bono made sure to thank Bruce Springsteen for loaning his band the New Jersey New Meadowlands Stadium when their two-year long tour played there Wednesday night.
That was just before Bono and U2 paid tribute to late E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons for the New Jersey audience with some of Bruce Springsteen's "Jungleland" worked into usual show closer "Moment of Surrender."
The two and a half hour show contained many of U2’s greatest hits from the 90s. According to the Wall Street Journal, Bono dedicated a song to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (whose husband, NASA Commander Mark Kelly, born in Orange, New Jersey, sent a video message from Space). He even commented on the New Jersey temperatures, saying, “If you’re Irish, this is really hot.”
