We decided to hang around, of course I didn't have my camera or anything to get an autograph with. After awhile, Larry drove in actually he whizzed right by us talking on his cellphone. Then Edge and Adam drove by. Last, Bono came by. His car drove inside but then he got out and walked over to us!

He had a picture of the band on the cover of RS and told us "Your favorite band is going to be on the cover of Rolling Stone coming up" He chatted with a few fans, shook some hands, took a few pictures and gave this woman a HUGE hug! She almost died! I was right next to her but she pushed me out of the way and got in front of me . After that the crowd started to get pushy and he left so I never got to shake his hand. I was able to say hi to him though. BLM's husband got a few pictures we will post later.

How awesome is it of Bono to come out to say hi to a few fans right before a huge show? He is amazing! I then walked on clouds back to the arena!
Hi - I'm the one who got the long hug from Bono that day - I am soooo sorry if I did push you, I seriously don't remember doing that - I was really just trying to stay calm and may have been pushed in to you. That HUGE hug, as you described it - was the most amazing thing in the world. I also kissed his neck and told him I loved him. I can't believe I stayed calm enough to say words to him.

Again, sorry. I am looking for pics of the hug. I see myself taking pics of him in the photos posted here. My friends got two pics - still looking for more. Have you seen the youtube video - "meeting bono". It's incredible and captures it.

Mari

It sucks I didn't get a chance to greet him but it was cool to actually see him. Pushing is just not cool, but I understand what happened to you.

See, I read this and, whilst I'm obviously pleased for those who got a chance to meet Bono, I do feel a little frustrated that he didn't do the same outside Croke Park when I waited by the back gate for about 4 hours!! Only to drive by, and there was only a small group of people waiting so its not like he would have been mobbed!!

My Dad - who is 75 years old - loved Sinatra. It took him 40 years to shake his hand. No words would come out when he finally did. My Mom, however, told him how wonderful he was and he spoke to her. I guess I have some of both my parents in me!!!

Around 1:25, a young man gives Bono a marker to sign his ticket, but Bono uses it to sign everyone else's stuff except his. And you can see him trying to get Bono to sign his ticket, but Bono just keeps walking away. At 2:28 Bono walks away for good and the kid says "Bono. Bono my marker!".

Poor guy. No autograph, and lost his marker. Well, at least he lost it to Bono.

Bono always steals people's markers.

He has a collection of them under his bed. He looks at them every night before going to sleep.
