Jesse Helms, The US Senate's most outspoken proponent of artistic censorship, reportedly attended a U2 concert as a special guest of Bono in Washington DC with his grandchildren according to ArrowFM.com.
Helms said of the show "It was filled to the gills, and people were moving back and forth like corn in the breeze. They had the crowd going wild. When Bono shook his hips, that crowd shook their hips."
