Famed U2 front man, Bono, arrived in Israel on Monday for a short non-publicized visit. The iconic singer-musician dined in a restaurant at the Jaffa port together with several friends.
After dinner, the leader of the legendary Irish rock band and his wife headed to the Ilka bar on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv, enjoyed an expensive tequila and left a generous tip for the waiter.
As he exited the bar, more than 150 people stood on the sidewalk nearby and cheered him.
Bono is staying at a well-known Tel Aviv hotel and is expected to leave the country in the coming days due to U2's concert schedule.
According to Israel Radio, Bono is also in Israel for a meeting of the technology company Dropbox - which has Israeli partners - in which he is reportedly invested. The U2 front man has been known to be a high-level investor in technology firms. Dropbox allows users to store information online.
U2 was formed in 1976 and by the 1980s had become a top international act. The band has released 12 studio albums to date and are among the all-time best-selling music artists.
U2's record sales have reached 150 million and the group is credited with 22 Grammy Awards. In 2005, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
