This paper adds Bono, the lead singer of U2, to a list of dandies, or personality performers, in the tradition of Oscar Wilde. The paper focuses on Bono in the early 1990s, during the band's Zoo TV concert tour, and considers Bono and Wilde's Irish and aesthetic connections. Bono deserves to be counted among notorious personality performers, and Wilde deserves to be taken seriously as Bono is today, due to the solemn turn his life took near its end.
