U2 have joined the tributes to the late E Street Band sax player Clarence Clemons.

Bruce Springsteen's longtime colleague passed away aged 69 last week (June 18) after suffering a stroke. Tributes have been pouring in from artists including Coldplay and Lady Gaga.

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.

U2 headline Glastonbury this Friday (June 24).
