A List of All of Bono’s Crank Phone Calls

Back on the Zoo-TV tour and when cell phone technology was still young, Bono liked to make some kind of crank phone call from the stage during every performance. He called taxi companies, political figures, royalty, the Pope, Salmon Rushdie, Madonna and even ordered pizza for the stadium.  It was actually kinda fun.
