U2 FLOPS WITH FUNDRAISING GIG
A huge fundraising concert for Bosnia brought rock giants U2 to the war-scarred country, but it didn’t bring in much money. In fact, after the big-spending Eire group’s expenseswere cleared, only pounds 8,400 was left over to help the partitioned country recover from the 43-month conflict, the Bosnian government said in a report yesterday.
Nearly 45,000 spectators paid amost pounds 7 each to attend the September concert inSarajevo. Of the pounds 299,000 generated, more than pounds 291,000 went to pay thecosts of the gig.
