That performance was awesome by the way, I hope to se you in your next show or at the LA County Fair, where I believe you guys will play....

Hey, thanks RedrocksU2! Yes, we are very fortunate to have Bonnie. She is a huge blessing.

We will be playing the LA County Fair September 9th, 10th, 11th, and 14th. The exact dates for the fair aren't listed on our website yet, but should be posted in the next day or two.

Hope to see you before then though! Please, introduce yourself to me when you come out. If I met you Monday and forgot, I apologize. I was really in the "zone" performance wise.....what a surreal weekend it was and that show was an absolute blast!

Next show is Cupertino (San Jose) on April 8th
14 Below in Santa Monica on April 16th
and...we're back at Harry O's in Manhattan Beach on April 23rd

Thanks and God bless,

Jason.

I knew you were going to say that!

I honestly have no idea...the same thing happened to the first picture of me too, so it aint just me tryin to hog all the photo's. I tried several times to make them all the same size and it just wasn't working.

Trust me, I like looking at Mike's drumset just as much as you do.

I can privately e-mail you some great photo's of the drums from the two shows...wink wink.

Jason.

ok, here is a the full and detailed account of yesterdays preshow excitement. Happy Kren? Yesterday was insanely perfect. I got to the arena around 2:30pm. This time at the east gate they had a roped off area for all of us to wait in. So I found a place along the rope and watch and wait. I see some fans I know, Exit gals and Diamond, and wait for about an hour until the bus for Kings of Lion drives by. Then two black cars, about 10 minutes apart from each other, drive by. One carrying Adam, and one carrying Larry. Then a Car with The Edge drives by. About 15 minutes later he comes out of the gate and starts signing autographs. It was very orderly and calm. He made his way down the line of fans smiling the entire time.

When he finally reached me he smiled at me and said hello. I responded with an excited high pitched hello and he then said, “How are you guys?” I said fine. He saw the picture I had for him to sign and immediately signed it.

I told him I had taken it at Mondays show and told him “you guys rocked.” I then asked him if I could take a picture with him. He said, “Sure sweetheart, where’s your camera?” I pointed to Andrea and he leaned in and smiled.

I thanked him and he continued down the line of fans. About 30 minutes later Bono’s black SUV comes driving up to us. His window is open and he is waving at the screaming fans. When he saw me I smiled the widest smile I could and he did that, opened mouth, silent scream face and then smiles and waves at me. The SUV continues to drive by and then stops about 10 feet past where I was in line.

The crowd instantly hovered around the opened door. He spoke with fans while putting his shoes on. He then put his hat on, stepped out of the car, and started to sign autographs.

Everyone made a crowd around him with me in the back. My friend asked one of the security guards to help us get to him but he seemed to ignore us. After waiting about five long minutes I felt tears running down my face. The security guards saw me and told people to step back so I could meet him to. Bono made his way down the edge of fans signing as he went. When he got to me he smiled and said hello. I said hello and he looked down at the drawing I had for him to sign.

He asked me if it was of him. I said yes and he then picked it up to look at it. He told me it was very good and said “You made me look taller, thank you.” I thanked him and he then asked who he was signing it for. I told him Melissa and he signed it in blue ink. I then told him I wanted to thank him for sending me a signed cd from New York last year and that it meant the world to me. He paused and got this puzzled look on his face. After a moment he smiled and asked, “that was you?” I laughed and said yes. He then leaned over and kissed the top of my head. I thanked him again. He was just about to leave when my friend said wait, you have to sign one more thing. She handed him the picture I took on Monday. As he looked at it I told him I took it at Mondays show. He told me it was incredible and signed it right below Edge’s signature. I thanked him again, he smiled at me and then continued down the line of fans. When he got to the end of the crowd he got back into the SUV and waved one last time at me while rolling passed.

It still doesn’t feel real. I'll scan the autographed ones this weekend.

Missa, my darling Missa! I am so joyously pleased that of anyone on this earth or outside the arena at that time YOU were the one chosen for Bono to focus on! I know what the attention means to you and I couldn't be happier than if it had happened to myself. (well ok I might be just a teeny tiny bit jealous hehe). Can't wait to see the autographs and talk to you about it more....when you float back to earth, girl! I am so so so bummed that Janelle missed out.....but I am sure that Andrea is floating on a cloud along with you!

Thanks for sharing! I am keeping your phone message you left me after meeting the Edge because it is so cute!

Love ya!
Kren
