U2 in Indonesia

The running subject with one of my clients is U2. The Irish Band. Last year there was a rumor about impending concert by U2 in Indonesia. I think the promotor working on it is Tommy Pratama of Original Production. The thing is, Bono has once said that he's not going to come to any country with human rights problem.

So, the problem is not that we dont have a venue for 100,000 people, because we have Istora Senayan. The problem is getting our government to give more attention on human rights.

Last night I read that according to Washington, Indonesia's human rights is rated positively. Does that mean U2 is finally coming to town?

Bono has a reputation to loose. Yet I think he will be able to turn a blind eye on a number of awkward incidents and, like greedy politicians do in such circumstances, always can say at home he will discuss human rights issues in the Indonesian police and in Papua with the president while he is in the country for some concerts.

Hi Triesti,
Let us hope that Bono will change his mind.

@colson, @Harry those habib who keeps organizing tablik akbar (pray together or something like that) need to pray for something real like making U2 visit Indonesia for once:)
