U2 plays tribute to Jersey icons at New Meadowlands Stadium

U2 plays tribute to Jersey icons at New Meadowlands Stadium

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.”
