While playing a U2 concert in Glasgow, Scotland, Bono asked the audience for total silence, and to light the small candle each concert goer was given at the gate.
In that outdoor venue, illuminated by the soft, gentle and flickering light of tens of thousands small candles and in total silence, Bono slowly started to clap his hands.
Every few seconds, Bono would clap his hands.
As the large audience listened in total silence, Bono put his lips to the microphone and whispered breathlessly: "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies."
From the silence, emerged a strong and steady, if somewhat tipsy voice, with a broad Scottish accent that bellowed:
"Well then, quit clapping your hands, you bleedin' idiot!"
