Bono adds his voice to tributes to sax legend
U2 have joined the tributes to the late E Street Band sax player Clarence Clemons.
Now, the Irish rockers have paid their own condolences to the ‘Big Man’ at a show in Florida. The band were playing the Anaheim Stadium as part of their 360 Tour, according to the LA Times.
Bono told the crowd: “I want you to think about the beautiful symphonic sound that came out of one man’s saxophone. I want you to think about Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band of brothers. I want you to think of Clarence Clemons. This man just carried music and music carried him until this day.”
They went on to play ‘Moment Of Surrender’, incorporating elements of Springsteen track ‘Jungleland’, which features one of Clemons‘ most iconic saxophone solos.
