Bono launched the Beckett Centenary Festival at the Dublin castle on Wednesday.
He was attending at the invitation of Michael Colgan, Director of the Gate Theatre and the Chairman of the Beckett Centenary Committee.
Colgan asked Bono to perform his ‘pastiche of Beckett’, which you can listen to on the RTE website. Parental advisory: explicit genius.
Colgan then presented Bono with a signed edition of Beckett’s book ‘Murphy’.
