'Keep the Promise!'

8 Jun 2007
The P8 Festival in Rostock last night culminated with Bono duetting - in German - with the mighty Herbert Gronemeyer. Details and video links here.

The show, organised by Gronemeyer to ramp up the political pressure as Germany hosted G8 leaders in Heiligendamm, saw Bono on stage in several musical combinations.

Opening with Youssou N'Dour and Bob Geldof on Marley's 'Redemption Song', they were joined by Campino from Die Toten Hosen for The Beatles' 'You Never Give Me Your Money' and finished up with more Marley and 'Get Up Stand Up'.

The logistics backstage were 'pretty complex', according to one of the team. 'We were running between three rooms: in one Bob, Youssou and Bono were rehearsing their set, in another it was G8 media interviews, and in another Bono was practising his German wth Herbert!'

As the 60,000 fans thought the show was coming to an end, Gronemeyer introduced his signature number 'Mensch', bringing Bono back on - in German. Catch it on YouTube
