Bono takes time out from the studio with Portofino break

7 AUGUST 2008
After hosting vacationing A-list pals George Clooney and Cindy Crawford at his luxury South of France home earlier in the week, Bono was enjoying a bit of a holiday himself on Wednesday.

The U2 frontman, who's working on material for a new album, had headed to the popular Italian riviera village of Portofino for some time-out with wife of 26 years Ali.

And the Sweetest Thing singer - who, following news of fake U2 gig tickets being sold online, posted a message on his website this week to let fans know the band have no gigs in the pipeline - is in good company. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria have also been spotted soaking up the rays there this summer.
