U2's Bono pays homage to 'new Argentina'

March 04 2006 at 11:56AM

Buenos Aires, Argentina - Irish rock star Bono wound up the Latin America leg of U2's Vertigo tour with a message of optimism for crisis-wracked Argentina.

"Argentines have gone through difficult times, but these have been overcome by a new Argentina," he said in Spanish, to the 60 000-strong crowd at River Plate stadium on Thursday.

Bono also sang Mothers Of The Disappeared in a homage to the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo, who denounced the disappearance of tens of thousands during Argentina's 1976-83 military regime. Several of the elderly mothers were at the concert.
