"I don't see a body of water wide enough, or a wall high enough, to keep these problems from our doors," singer says at Munich Security Conferenc

By Daniel Kreps, Rolling Stone

Bono argued that investments in development and education in third-world countries, and not border walls and executive orders, could prevent extremism during the U2 singer's speech at the Munich Security Conference Friday.

"I don't see a body of water wide enough, or a wall high enough, to keep these problems from our doors," Bono warned.

"The frontier of national interest is no longer the national border. You may not be interested in the trouble on a far-off street or across the Mediterranean on the other side of the globe, but let me assure you, that trouble is interested in you. Our fate is a shared fate. But which fate will it be?"

Longtime U2 fans have launched a campaign to make a film dedicated to U2's most dedicated followers.

by Hot Press

U2 fan and filmmaker David Barry - working with the #strongerthanfear campaign, the U2 Fans Tour Group and The Dream Out Loud team - has launched an ambitious campaign to make a film about the U2 fan base. Dream Out Loud will be a film made by U2 fans about U2 fans and their connection to the music, the band and each other.

To create a professional broadcast-worthy film, Mr. Barry has launched a crowd funding campaign to raise $40,000 to make this historic film. The funds will be spent on travel and crew expenses to film and interview fans in cities during U2's Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary tour this summer. The Dream Out Loud film will also speak with fans from Brazil, Australia, Mexico and many other countries.

The Lumineers didn't think anything could shock them after their meteoric rise to fame following their 2012 breakout hit, "Ho Hey." But when they learned that they sold out not just one, but two shows at Madison Square Garden this month for their Cleopatra World Tour (following their sophomore album), they were floored.

"It blew my mind," lead vocalist and guitarist Wesley Schultz tells PEOPLE. "MSG is this right of passage -- this gauge of how well you're doing."

Remarks:

U2 perform at the Dreamfest conference right outside San Francisco (part of Salesforce's annual charity benefit for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital). The performance is held outdoors and uses U2's old stage setup from 2006's Vertigo stadium legs (only used once in the U.S. at the final show in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 9, 2006). The band rehearsed twice prior to the show, including the night before. A rare full band version of "California (There Is No End to Love)" is performed for only the 7th time in its entirety. U2 played a portion of "Zooropa" right after "Beautiful Day" and dedicated "Every Breaking Wave" to Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs, who died 5 years ago to the day. The biggest moment came when U2 went after GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump in a searing version of "Bullet the Blue Sky". In specially looped videos of Donald Trump, Bono attacks him for trying to hijack the American Dream as a self-serving and destructive business man. This mockery by Bono resembles his "conversation" with George H. W. Bush as "MacPhisto" on U2's ZooTV Tour. Right after "One", U2's scheduled encore was nixed because Bono spoke about charity involving the Red campaign. Much like the Innocence + Experience Tour, U2 performed a similar encore of songs until the final encore of "40". That song ("40") was played in celebration of U2's recent 40th anniversary of being together as a band. Bono said: "It feels kind of like a 40th birthday song".
