Our friends at report Bono was seen in Venice last night, at the Lido in the company of some friends. Whether he was there for the Festival del Cinema, or the Balthus Exhibition at Palazzo Grassi is unknown.

Update: This article from says Bono sang Night and Day and was there for both the Cinema festival and the Balthus exhibition. Thanks to Germana for the translation: “He arrived with Marta Marzotto, and sang until the early morning. Surprise: Bono sings in Venice. He went to a party celebrating the closing of Venice Movie Festival. To meet him in Venice rather than in a Dublin street was weird. U2’s Bono appeared with Marta Marzotto (a fashion stylist), and made a special performance for few lucky persons, dancing and choosing songs to listen. He first went to the Excelsior Hotel, to attend a party with Johnny Depp. Then, in a room of the hotel he sang “Night And Day” and danced with Balthus’s widow. Later he moved on a little boat where Tele+ (Pay tv) employees where having a party, danced with the president of Tele+, Emmanuel Gout, and like a dj selected albums until 5 am.”
