'For the U2 audience and anyone campaigning for her release for over ten years… it's a big deal.'

Speaking to RTE News ahead of Electric Burma in Dublin tonight, Bono described his time with Aung San Suu Kyi, how she 'wanted to thank  the Irish people,  Amnesty International and the U2 audience…' and his 'impertinence' in writing Walk On.

Wonderful interview! With "Walk On" U2 dedicated a moving song to this incredible and courageous woman who had never ceased to fight for her country. Her release was a huge contribution to more humanity and dignity in our world.It is great that Aung San Suu Kyi visited Dublin.
