I have never met them either. I'm not losing hope though.

Zonelistener guy hasn't met any of them - and he has been a fan since 1985.

I have "met" 3 of them, but now i'm jealous of what happened to MG and the others, and my little meeting pales in comparison!
It seems like just when i catch up to the herd, the herd jumps ahead again!
Dont worry, youll get there. Look, I am one of the most unlucky and unfortunate souls on the earth.NOTHING like this has EVER happened to me!!!! I didnt think a pitiful creature like me would ever become one of the in crowd of sorts. I know very little about meeting VIPs. Yet by fate it happened to me. I cant get over that....I'm still in shock, and i still cant tell the story without screaming!
My mom had good luck meeting stars. But those were different times. It was easier.
And the way it happened to me...it was only fate, not skill. Just keep trying!

I never thought I'd meet any of the boys either, I've waited for so long...but this tour I finally did! Just be patient!!! Best place to meet them is to wait by the service entrance of the arena before the show.
I got Larry and Edge's autograph...and oh yeah...Bono kissed my hand

I really hesitate to reply to this, but I have to thank you Angel for saying what you did. I agree with everything you said.

I never even tried to meet any of them until this tour, and I've had several other chances to do it. Like you said so beautifully Angel-'the mystery'. And it bothers me that some people might feel this is some sort of 'competition' on here as to who can do what. I don't agree with people being labelled 'jealous' because they choose not to do what others choose to do, or don't agree with it. Maybe they just have an opinion .

It is all about THE MUSIC-while any meeting w/ them is wonderful, it doesn't make you any more special than any other fan. And I'm NOT saying that anyone here feels that they are that.

I can't imagine that many other bands have the kind of fan contact that U2 has-it is a privilege that could easily disappear if they so chose.

I know what you mean about sometimes it seeming like everyone else has met them! I never have, but I've only had one opportunity and didn't try (seeing them in concert last year, I could have hung out outside all day, but I didn't...if I'd had GA tickets it might have been a different story.) I'd like to meet them, and I would get autographs if I could, but it's not a big deal. It certainly doesn't change my life one way or another.

If I had a chance to meet them, I'd rather have a good conversation than an autograph, but that's probably less likely!

And i'm one of the lucky ones who has the ability to hear the bootlegs and at least try to get a hold of the tickets. I wonder how many fans there are in, say, Africa or Asia that don't have either of those options.

BTW, i don't mean "meet" in a stalky way - more like natural meeting - if it happens, it happens. If not, that's ok too.

Sorry, but it seems too many people now are taking advantage of their goodwill towards their fans. Meeting U2 is a privelage, not a right, and it doesn't matter how many times you say you are not a stalker, it doesn't make it any less true.
Meeting the band while on tour is cool, because that's when it's expected by them, but hanging around their haunts in their hometown and at the studio day in and day out, is plain old invasion of privacy. It just seems wrong, and no I am not jealous.
I'll probably never meet the band and that's ok. I like the mystery and hell, it's all about the music anyway. What's the point if I can't have a *real* conversation with them. Talk about what made me like them in the first place--> the music. It seems the music has been forgotten in all this frenzy.
Autographs mean nothing to me.
I agree, for the most part. I don't see anything wrong with trying to meet the band. I think that going to the studio and places like that once (or even a few times) is fine. When it gets to be a regular activity, I think that's a little out of hand.

As far as autographs go, I just like to have them as a reminder of the encounter.

(I'm not a stalker, by the way)

K, this is me, one of the 'stalkers'!! I met them twice in a month and yes, I went to the studio to meet them. And don't tell me you wouldn't if you had the chance. Coz I know a few ppl who said, oh no! I'm not gonna go there STALKING! and been there twice since then. I don't really care what ppl think about this. I keep my 'visitings' within limits and I respect their privacy. The reason I went back there is just, for a silly reason, I wanted to wish Bono a safe trip. Bah, sentimental, but true.
