U2 Pays tribute to Clarence Clemons

Band performs ‘Moment of Surrender’ to honor the Big Man

Hours after the news came down that Clarence Clemons had passed away, U2 took the stage in Anaheim, California. Before the finale of "Moment Of Surrender," Bono addressed the audience. "I want you to think about a beautiful symphonic sound that came out of one man's saxophone," he said. "I want you to think about Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band of brothers. I want you to think of Clarence Clemons. This man just carried music, and music carried him until this day." Towards the end of the song, Bono was handed the lyrics to "Jungleland," which he recited to the crowd like it was a prayer.
