Cirque du U2

Second Montreal show: More evidence that Bono sees himslef as the clown (see " Bono: "Don't lose your faith in this holy clown ...")
in the improv prayer he sings in "Moment of Surrender":
We’ve taken our space station around the world,’ reflected Bono. ‘We’re nearly home, we’re going to have to find something else to do.
‘When we were kids joining U2 was like running away with the circus, maybe we need to find another circus…’
In the home city of Cirque du Soleil, ‘maybe there are a few jobs going’.  After all, Larry is a ‘fire-eater, a sword-swallower, the world’s strongest man.’ Adam? ‘The bearded lady…’  Edge? ‘Trapeze artist, high-wire act… and I will play the clown.’
