U2 frontman Bono arrived for an unannounced visit in Israel Monday. The musician was seen meeting with friends in two restaurants in Tel Aviv.

Bono's visit appeared to be for pleasure, not business.

Army Radio reported that he was accompanied by his wife and children. There was no indication that he was planning a tour date with his band, which had not performed in Israel since 1997.

There was also no indication that the trip was political, according to the report.

The singer was spotted dining with his family at chocolate restaurant Max Brenner on Rothschild Boulevard, and chatting with friends in a Jaffa restaurant.

Now is the time to join the news event of the year - The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference!
