U2’s Bono, The Edge, Sting, Peter Gabriel and Yoko Ono paid 1.5 million koruna ($75,500) for a tapestry dedicated to late Czech President Vaclav Havel, CTK news agency reported.
The tapestry, designed by Petr Sis, is to be unveiled Dec. 9 at Prague’s international airport that has been named after Havel, who died last year, CTK said, citing Eva Krejci, the airport’s spokeswoman.
