Interesting tidbit: Paul McCartney and U2 opened the concert playing “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. It later emerged that for his performance McCartney had hijacked Bono’s jacket from his dressing room forcing Bono to appear on stage in a denim jacket instead. Bono said he was stunned to see the former Beatle sporting his jacket when they teamed up on stage. “He asked our wardrobe person whose it was, and she says: ‘Bono’s - he’s wearing it today.’ And Paul says: ‘No he’s not. I’m wearing it.’” explained Bono later. He then added jokingly: “Now I’m used to being the big guy - but not in front of a Beatle.” (Source: Irish Daily Star - Saturday June 16 2007, page 3)
