U2 Front-man, Bono, Criticized by Left for Avoiding Exorbitant European Tax Rates

He has carefully crafted an image of himself as a moral crusader, fighting for the world’s poor against those who don’t ‘return wealth to the people’.

The U2 frontman, 55, has revealed he bases some business ventures in the Netherlands, where tax rates are far lower than in his native Ireland.

This was defended by the group’s guitarist The Edge – real name David Evans, 53 – who said the group often perform abroad so have no need to base their finances in the country.
