BONO: the poet; the highwayman; the angel; the devil; the journalist; the wordsmith; the god; the star; the man; the traveller; the thinker; the artist; the creator; the inspiration; the hero; the saviour; the human. In my eyes you are all this and so much more. You make me weep with pathos; you make me shiver with delight; you make me sing with joy. Happy Day that you graced this Earth. Anita

Happy Birthday from the Florida Heat
Happy Birthday Bono, To put it quite simply it is a rare thing these days to be both entertained and so inspired. The 360 tour was the greatest spectacle I have ever been a part of (and yes the audience is part of the show), I look forward to Miami 2010. Keep on rocking!!!

Welcome to your 50's Bono! Happy Birthda
I am in my early 50's and let me just say that one morning I woke up and had quite a few more aches than usual. This has continued, with more aches and I move slower. However, mentally I feel wonderful! I have a lot less stress and worries now, I guess I don't worry about the little things anymore. My children are grown and now I have a grandchild, a little boy, 6 months old. Grandchildren are so wonderful, they are such a gift from God. So, welcome to your 50's Bono! Enjoy them and take time to relax and enjoy your life, your family, and all that God has blessed you with. Life goes by so fast. You have done so much good for this world and I just want to say "Thank You". And I really enjoy U2's music, you are all such an inspiration. I will see you on stage in Chicago on July 6th! And yes I will be sitting, I couldn't stand that long in the inner circle my back and legs would hurt to much, a being in your 50's thing. I hope your 50th Birthday was a good one! Beth :)

Happy (Belated) Birthday
Hope you had a wonderful birthday! I hope 50 feels as good as it looks on you. I think you are amazing...from your music to what you do globally. I saw you in Boston last year and it was my first time for GA, I was right up to the stage. I nearly fainted when I got to see you so close! I hope this will be a great year for you, Edge, Larry and Adam. We will miss you in Boston!! Thanks for doing what you do.

Happy Belated Birthday Bono!
Happy 50th birthday! Thanks for all of the amazing music over the years. The Rose Bowl concert was the best show I've ever seen. I wonder if that will change when I see you again in Anaheim on June 6, I can hardly wait!

Happy Late BDay Bono!
Sorry it's late but i just wanted to take the time and whish you a very Happy Bday! Thanks for all the great music and lyrics. The are by far in my own humble opinion the greatest rock band in the world. I have had the opportunity of seeing U2 perform in many different concerts, and i must say that you guys sound so good in concert! Keep up the great music. I will be seeing you on June 6 at Anaheim stadium and i know it is going to be a great one. I was at the Rose Bowl last year which was awsome! Please sing New Years Day at Anaheim, I just love that song. Thank You and Again Hope you had a great Bday!

Me and Ines wished you a happy b-day in your birth day, 10thMay, but we got here, and we copy-pasted the coment, with an aditional note :) you're the best !

Happy birthday Bono ! :)
Hi Bono, my name is Sarah, and I'm with a friend called Inês. We're both 15 years old, we're portuguese, and maybe people think that with our age we would's listen to U2's songs, but we think they're wrong, U2's songs are the best songs in the world. We are your biggest fans, we sing your songs all the time, and we know you've 50 years old now, and you're old enough to be our dad, bue you're so cute :$ we should't say this, bue we will: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WE LOVE YOU BONO :$ ( we know... but the right to be ridiculous is something we hold dear )
