Taste the diffidence
Actually, I disagree.
You see, when u2 played Brazil on their Vertigo tour a few years ago, the tickets were about US$90 each - about two thirds of the average monthly wage.
Bono relentlessly campaigns to governments and individuals to "Make Poverty History", yet he (and the rest of u2) pays absolutely no income tax on their own earnings in Ireland. U2 made about $300 - $400 million on their "Vertigo tour" and the funds/royalties have been directed into other companies which are located in Ireland by clever accountants hired by u2, who know all the loopholes in the system.
Let's not forget, Bono also sued a former stylist over a pair of jeans and a hat last year - she was left destitute after paying her legal bills.
It's just that when a multi-millionaire takes actions like these against poorer people, whilst promoting themselves as the answer to world poverty, and any other fashionable causes they can... well, the hypocrisy doesn't sit well with me at all.
Isn't it possible that everything you just said is true and Bono has helped provided critical help for thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of poor people in Africa? What then?
