U2 frontman Bono dedicated the band’s 1988 love song “All I Want Is You” to First Lady Jill Biden during the final show of their Las Vegas residency over the weekend.

In introducing the song, Bono explained he tried to write the lyrics from a woman’s perspective and said he wanted to dedicate it that night to “all the great women in our lives,” including partners, mothers, daughters and those facing difficulties.

Bono said, “This song, when we wrote it, I tried to write the lyrics from the point of view of the woman or the bride, in this case, which is pretty arrogant, I suppose. That was a trick for me to get to the lyric I was playing on myself.”

“So tonight I want to dedicate it to all the great women in our lives,” said Bono.

“Our partners, our mothers, our daughters, all the women on the U2 crew, all the great women in our audience that we feel we know, and all the great women in parts of the world going through very difficult circumstances that we could never know,” he continued.

He singled out Jill Biden, calling her “a teacher” and “your First Lady,” saying the song was for her as it is a wedding song.

Bono said, “And one woman in particular who’s with us tonight. She’s a teacher, she’s your First Lady. So this is for Jill Biden. It’s a wedding song.”

Jill Biden was reportedly in Las Vegas that day ahead of a campaign event for her husband, President Joe Biden, who is seeking to win votes in the key swing state of Nevada in the upcoming presidential election.
