U2 front man Bono attended the 7 pm performance of The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil at The Mirage in Las Vegas tonight, Sunday, July 8, 2012. The musician was accompanied by his wife Ali along with family and friends. During the performance, the group sipped on vodka tonics as well as one of the show’s signature cocktails called, “Here Comes the Sun” (Photo credit: Brian Steffy/Getty Images).
This was Bono’s first time seeing LOVE but is a huge Beatles fan and was seen singing and dancing along to many of the acts including “Drive my Car” and “Within You Without You.” His favorite part of the show was a scene from “A Day in the Life” when one of the show’s Volkswagen prop cars breaks apart revealing the artists underneath which he said was, “absolutely amazing.”

While backstage after the show, Bono posed for pictures with the excited cast and playfully asked when Cirque was going to make a show based on the music of U2.
Bono and family were in town to celebrate their daughter Eve’s 21st birthday.
