Larry Gagosian Welcomes Bono and Other Celebrities to Wild Hamptons Estate Parties

Bono makes a tony pit stop before his NYC U2 tour.


U2 frontman Bono is the latest star to lounge at mega-dealer Larry Gagosian’s Hamptons hideaway according to a recent post on Page Six of the New York Post.

The Irish rock star has reportedly been staying at Gagosian’s guest house in the upscale town of Amagansett, according to the Post, where the digs are attached to the dealer’s main home which bears the title “Toad Hall.”

Eager fans tweeted sightings of Bono over the weekend but no word yet on whether or not he tagged along with Gogo to one of numerous art fairs or related art galas that happened this past weekend including ArtSouthampton, Market Art + Design, and the Parrish Art Museum’s glamorous midsummer party.

Following Bono’s recovery from a serious bike crash accident this past year, U2 is now performing eight shows at Madison Square Garden beginning July 18.
