Is this true? If so, Sorry, no excuse. You don't tell anyone to FOAD when a fan asks about the ONE Campaign. I mean, no excuse. I have been fortunate enough to meet Edge, Adam, and Bono, but Bono is arrogant and has an attitude. Which, by the way, I feel is no excuse. I know that he gets hasselled all the time and that he has no privacy, but GUESS WHAT FOLKS...THAT IS WHAT HE SIGNED UP FOR!!
Maybe you should chill out and read the post again. In whole this time.

That comment was followed with a . It's obviously a joke.

And he didn't sign up to get harassed and stalked, nor did he sign up for losing his privacy. He joined a band and they got big, that does not mean people lose all respect for him and be selfish and stalk him. If people respect the man and his privacy, he'll be nice to them in return.
If you're a stalkerish weirdo who snuffs in his trash, goes everywhere he goes, then yeah, I can understand if he's not the nicest man to you. Nobody writes up to deserve people like this.

You nearly give me a fright hahah!
And with regard to the girl who blew a kiss to Bono, yes, I mean, the man is on stage singing and going through all the stage. He can´t be focused on every woman who shows him affection.

(Sorry if I´m posting this on the incorrect thread)

Some fans have told me that Bono was very evasive with Argentinian fans, but I DID see some pics of him with fans and on this forum too. He may appeared seriously, but what? I appear in pics seriously too and not because of that I´m angry or something like that. The man may not wanted all the people to get too crazy like in Vertigo Tour, but I´d not like his image to come down
An I still think that Larry was the most evasive.

I think sometimes fans are too demanding of the band, and act like they're entitled to have encounters or pictures or autographs.

They have a great reputation for being very open with fans, but heaven forbid the band is just having a bad day, or the fans are just too pushy or too big of a crowd that day. If the crowd looks too crazy, they're right to not stop, in my opinion.

And if the fans get pissed off about it, they have no right to be. They don't *owe* you anything. If they don't stop, they have a good reason for it, I'm sure. And that reason is not "Oh, they don't care about us anymore." Get over yourselves.

I saw someone on another message board go off on this huge rant about how the band used to stop every time, and this last time she was there, they didn't stop and oh my god, you'd have thought Bono had killed her dog or something. And this woman had met them many times before.

I had to restrain myself from going off on her. I was amazed that no one else did.

There are a lot of articles and pics right now about where Bono is currently in another area away from the band because he'd like some privacy. There are a lot of photos too, with fans who have still met him but they are unexpected encounters, and he is still always posing for pics with him. But the articles are saying he was feeling trapped in his hotel by fans who will not let him leave. And he is being hounded horribly by paparazzi there. Hard to believe it could be worse than what he's accustomed to normally, but obviously it is pretty bad. Still though, nothing I've seen with fans meeting him in this more private location say he has snubbed them, he still always is kind enough to take the photos.

Here are a couple translations from recent articles:

Quote:
Bono, lead singer of U2, Mendoza arrived at noon to retreat from the harassment of its fans in Buenos Aries, where "I can not leave the hotel" and visit some wineries.

The leader of the Irish group U2 arrived in a Learjet private plane LV-BFG with five other people. A witness heard they were on the agenda several wineries to visit, on the advice of Gustavo Santaolalla.

Quote:
Bono arrived incognito at noon to Mendoza, invited by his friend, composer and musician Gustavo Santaolalla, who won two Oscars for the soundtracks of the movies Babel and Brokeback Mountain.

As reported by the Los Andes de Mendoza, the leader of U2 wanted to know the province of the wines before continuing his tour of Latin America, which next week will land in San Pablo, Brazil.

Apparently, the singer arrived at the airport on a private jet Mendoza at 12.20 accompanied by a person. One rumor suggests that the singer went to the farm in Lunlunta Santaolalla, Maipú, where there is already a strong guard and guard journalistic.

Bono wanted to visit Mendoza by the fame of its wines, and asked to make a flying visit to see and taste the Malbec wine.

According to the newspaper Los Andes, the Irish singer will fly back to Buenos Aires at 17 to meet with their peer group and prepare for the trip to Brazil.
and some pics

Yes, that´s what people don´t understand. He needs privacy too, and I guess it´s not the first time. I remember that a Spanish girl (not on this tour) told me that none of them had signed to anyone ._.
And he looks a bit tired on some of those pics that you posted comet.

I can imagine he's tired - they've been on tour for, like, 500 months straight now, I swear.

I think the best way to meet them is by chance Because they may think that you´re pestering them.

This is my opinion so sorry if I am being blunt.
If I ever ran in to him in public when he is "off duty" I would never approach him. Not even for a picture and especially not when he is with his family or dining with friends, whatever. At the arena or recording studio or tv appearance, whatever, that's different, he is working and expects to be approached.
Dear Screaming, stalker fans:
Don't you know he will look at you with disdain under those shades and find you incredibly annoying and rude even if he is POLITE to you? Why would you want your hero to look at you with dread (underneath)? Really his life is not going to change if he hears you scream in his face that you love him. How many times has heard that?? Probably a billion. How does that make you special or memroable to him? It doesn't. You are one in a bazillion people who adore him. He gets it. He knows you like him. Now move along.

When he is mobbed as he has been lately, it makes me cringe and makes me glad that in places of the world he can still walk around and people respect his space and privacy.
That's the whole thing... if you love him, respect him. He will love you more!! shhhh... dont' tell anybody.

Ditto I wouldn´t approach him either.

No. I just tend to steer clear at all times. I will never try and approach any member of U2. This works out fine because I don't live anywhere near Dublin. They keep out my way and I keep out of their way.

What does FOAD mean? Maybe he was referring to origami?

Do you think Bono has ever been stalked? Do you think he'll sue The News Of The World for phone hacking? Do you think phone hacking by newspapers has been a concern for U2 over the years?
