U2 have paid a fitting homage to Clarence Clemons, the E Street saxophone player who passed away last week after suffering a stroke.

The Irish rockers were at the Anaheim Stadium in California as part of their two-year 360 degree tour.

Before playing their song Moment of Surrender, the band asked for the lights to be dimmed and for the audience at their gig to turn their thoughts to Clemons.

In an eloquent and touching speech, Bono addressed the huge crowd: "I want you to think about the beautiful symphonic sound that came out of one man's saxophone. I want you to think about Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band of brothers.

"I want you to think of Clarence Clemons. This man just carried music and music carried him until this day."

Tributes from music stars have been pouring in since the great saxophone player died.

A respected musician, he was popular with old time greats like Bruce Springsteen and the current crop of talent, including Lady Gaga.

In fact, the late musician appears in Lady Gaga's latest video Edge of Glory, blowing passionately into the music instrument that has become synonymous with his name.
