Cédric Annino est incollable sur son métier et a des histoires incroyables à raconter sur sa vie avec U2. Le plus de la journée c'est la conduite en la Maserati Levante, une voiture de sport ultime masquée sous un SUV. Le restaurant une étoile a apporté la cerise sur le gâteau :-) lors de cette journée intime, culturelle et riche en émotions. La quintessence du roadtrip bordelais.
