The U2 frontman faces his toughest crowd yet...

U2 frontman BONO is to address the LABOUR PARTY CONFERENCE in BRIGHTON later today (September 29).

The star will call for action to combat the spread of AIDS and ease Africa’s burden of debt. His speech comes as part of his work for the Debt, Aids, Trade Africa organisation (DATA), a group he and Bob Geldof have been instrumental in establishing and promoting. Recently, Bono has praised the government’s decision to put more money into the fight against HIV and AIDS.

While Bono and U2 have been working towards new album ‘How To Dismantle An Atom Bomb”s release, the singer has also been putting his weight behind John Kerry’s push for the White House. He has been a visible presence during keynote Kerry speeches at the recent Democratic conference in Boston and has backed Kerry’s use of U2 track ‘Beautiful Day’ as his main campaign anthem.
