It was sooo funny. I'm not mad or resentful at all, b/c now I can honestly say I've been stood up by Bono!
haha, I'm just reading this now... too cute!

People in the 300's can be so darn selfish!
Oh boy did I think that John Taylor was going to point to me and say " YOU, yes YOU , in the red dress in the nosebleed seats! I LOVE YOU! Let's get married after the show!"

he never did... imagine that!

Re:

I've read some of the experiences of fans being snubbed by the members of U2 in this thread and I have to say "I really feel for you"
I feel your pain because it happened to me, the only difference was the celebrity musician was with another band.
After worrying about what I did to deserve the rude treatment and feeling depressed over it, a good friend said "you probably didn't do anything wrong and he's probably a superficial jerk who's not worth the sweat of your ass".

((HUGS)) to all who've had bad experiences with any celebrity

Wow, old thread.

That reminds me though, the otter I gave to my sister - well, she threw it out after her cat trashed it. So the otter is no more

i always hate that the word "snubbed" is used in these situations. the band members don't owe anyone their time.

I'm sorry you had a bad experience -- it's never fun to be snapped at or rejected by anyone, let alone those we look up to. And what your friend said might indeed be correct.

But your friend could have said "you probably didn't do anything wrong and he's probably just had a really bad day" and been correct also. Maybe he'd recently gotten a call from his young daughter who was hurt and wanted her daddy to hold her, but he couldn't because he was thousands of miles away; maybe he'd just gotten some bad results from a medical test; maybe he found out a friend or family member had gotten bad results from a medical test; maybe he'd just found out his accountant had absconded with most of his money; maybe he'd just been arguing with his band members and his wife (or girlfriend/boyfriend) and his manager and his record label and the venue management; maybe his pusher was late and he was jonesing for a fix; maybe he'd just gotten up on the wrong side of the bed that day.

I think fans often think the celebrities they admire live completely charmed lives and should always be "on" for their fans. But they are people too, with all sorts of irritations and hassles to manage. And just like everyone else, some manage these things better than others.

So yeah, maybe the guy you met is a complete asshole, but maybe you just caught him at a bad time. Would you want to be judged on a 10 second meeting?

It's so weird to read an old post that you wrote and 1) not remember it, and 2) not recognize your personality in it.

Not "snubbed," per se ... but as it happened like it did, I probably wouldn't have had it differently.

My DD and I stood outside the Tampa arena for hours waiting for U2 to arrive, hoping they would come out at soundcheck. They didn't come to soundcheck and Rocko actually came out and told those of us who were there that they weren't coming, etc. We stood outside anyway until they arrived.

We were probably 6 ft. away from the cars coming in. Bono's first -- window up, didn't even look. Edge's window up, he glanced. Then Adam's car came by ... Window fully down and he gave us a dazzling smile and waved to us.

Then ... Larry's car came by -- he had his window rolled down so you could see him from the nose up and you could tell from his eyes he was smiling and he gave us a little salute.

So ... we were very happy that day.

Usually Bono rolls his window down and waves. At least he does when I'm there. He did that with us in Philly on the first leg and I got a couple of pics of him waving in the car

I know! But we were very happy to make eye contact with the Silver Fox and seeing Larry's smiling eyes.

Sorry to hear some fans had bad times . The boys do try there best with fans meeting them and pics. Its a matter if they have time because not all the time they can greet there fans. They are very kind men.
