U2 frontman Bono made a passionate appeal to the Germans, to understand the value EU at a time when “the word patriotism has been stolen from us, the nationalists and extremists”.

The rock band plans to start their tour in Berlin this week with what he called “one of our more provocative ideas: during the show we are going to swing big, bright, blue flag of the EU.”

Before the concert, Bono wrote an article for one of the largest German Newspapers ‘Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung’ in which he is seeking support for Ireland in the post-British exit from the EU in Europe.

“Ireland is a place with a special emotional connection in Europe, and this idea. Maybe it’s because Ireland is a small pebble in a big sea, I want to be a part of something bigger than ourselves (for most things more than we do)…belonging to Europe gave us an opportunity to become better, more confident version of yourself. We are slightly higher among friends”, – he wrote.
