 Bono was in Nice, during the attack that resulted in the death of over 80 people. The artist was not to be found in the Promenade des Anglais where the attack took place, but on his  own way, he was  in contact with the people fleeing from the truck-killer.

The French newspaper Le Figaro writes that Bono was  in fact, was eating dinner at  the Petite Maison, a famous restaurant,  in Nice  with chef Alain Ducasse located in a street parallel to the Promenade, in the company of a chef and entrepreneur, Eric Dupond-Moretti and a well-known criminal lawyer. 

The diners in the restaurant were not informed of the massacre that was taking place a few steps away, neither have they heard the roar of the trucks and the gunfire that put an end to the mad race. But what they saw  there was a crowd of people terrified running  through the alleys, one group found refuge inside the Petite Maison.

At the beginning, tthey  thought of a police chase. Security agents have promptly asked whoever was inside the restaurant to not move and do not quit. For two hours, continues to tell Le Figaro, no one has been able to leave the Petite Maison, until the forces of law and order have not led to the locked hands high up towards the place Masséna. It is not clear, however, if Bono was gone already before all this happened.
