VIDEO: U2 pays tribute to Clarence Clemons in Anaheim

U2 paid tribute to the late E Street Band legend Clarence Clemons during their Anaheim show Saturday night.

Just hours after news broke of Clemons’ passing, U2 took to the stage as their 360 World Tour winds down with its final leg of shows in North America.

“I want you to think about the beautiful symphonic sound that came out of one man’s saxophone,” said Bono. “I want you to think about Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. Brothers. I want you to think of Clarence Clemons. This man carried music and music carried him until this day...”

Bono added some lyrics from Springsteen’s “Jungleland” into the mix; the classic track known widely as a showcase for Clemons’ talents.
