According to Screen Daily, Bono made a speech before the film praising the city saying: ‘It’s as if there are two Sarajevos – the real and the imagined.

‘The one that you live and work in and we visit; and this mythic Sarajevo, a place of fun and magic.’ 

It comes two months after the superstar enjoyed a blow-out birthday bash with his nearest and dearest in London.  

Joined by his daughters Eve and Jordan, 32, Bono and his family rang in his 61st year at the upmarket Scott’s in Mayfair.

Two days later Bono, Ali and Behind Her Eyes star Eve – whose birthday falls on the same day as her famous father’s – were spotted continuing the celebrations over lunch at the River Café in Hammersmith, with Bono making time for a chinwag with the eatery’s owner, Ruth Rogers.
