The tribute took place on Monday at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater in an intimate setting. U2's singer, Bono, said: It’s hard, though, to lose a friend, to lose a mate, and this band has been through that. Music lost some great people who gave up on their own life, and that makes it kinda harder.... And now this great storyteller, who I’m sure had stories he had to tell us. For Anthony Bourdain and his friends and family, this is a song inspired by a great, great, great friend of ours. His name is Michael Hutchence. At that moment, U2 launched into their single from 2001, Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of, which was written in honor of Hutchence who died by suicide in 1997.
