In addition to remembering King, during Friday's show Bono also poked fun at The Edge, who had fallen off the stage the night before on the tour's opening night. He had some fun at his bandmate's expense, according to Rolling Stone. He reportedly told the crowd, "Somebody said that The Edge had downloaded himself into the audience without asking permission, I thought that was great." At the end of the set, Bono put his arm around the guitarist. "I think we should walk with the Edge," he said.
U2 join a long list of artists who have paid tribute to King, including John Mayer, Justin Timberlake, Mick Jagger, Ringo Starr and more.
Also on Friday night, King was also remembered at the Memphis Grizzlies game, where a "moment of song" was held in his honor at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, according to SI.com.
"In the spirit of music that he personified - all heart, soul and blues - we offer not a moment of silence but ask you to join us in a moment of song in honor of our friend, B.B. King," the announcer told the crowd. King's track "Why I Sing The Blues" was played in his honor.
