U2 Frontman Bono Dedicates Band’s Hit ‘All I Want Is You’ to First Lady Jill Biden

U2’s lead singer, Bono, wrapped up the band’s inaugural residency at Las Vegas’ $2.3 billion Sphere arena over the weekend by dedicating the song “All I Want Is You” to First Lady Jill Biden.

Prior to performing the band’s 1988 hit, “All I Want Is You,” Bono announced that he was dedicating the song to “one woman in particular,” which was Jill Biden.

“This song, when we wrote it, I tried to write the lyrics from the point of view of the woman or the bride, in this case, which is pretty arrogant, I suppose. That was a trick for me to get to the lyric I was playing on myself,” Bono explained.

“So tonight I want to dedicate it to all the great women in our lives,” he added.

“Our partners, our mothers, our daughters, all the women on the U2 crew, all the great women in our audience that we feel we know, and all the great women in parts of the world going through very difficult circumstances that we could never know,” Bono added.

“And one woman in particular who’s with us tonight,” the U2 frontman said.

“She’s a teacher, she’s your First Lady. So this is for Jill Biden. It’s a wedding song,” he continued.

Jill Biden reportedly landed in Las Vegas on Saturday ahead of a campaign event for her husband, President Joe Biden, who is competing to secure Nevada, a swing state, in the upcoming presidential election.
