Peres attends U2 show, saluted by Bono

U2’s Bono hailed Shimon Peres at a U2 show in Toronto on Tuesday night attended by the former Israeli president and prime minister.

On the anniversary of Operation Protective Edge, the lead singer for the Irish superstars praised Peres for his longtime efforts in trying to bring peace to the region.

 “We understand President Peres, that you have tried to be the voice of reason. And you’ve dedicated a lot of your life… to try and bring peace in this really dangerous region” said the U2 front man,  after calling the 91-year-old Nobel prize winner to the front of the audience before performing the band’s landmark tune of reconciliation, "One."
