Met Bono as he arrived to Giants last night!

We were walking around the stadium to try to find the GA line and say hi to everyone when we saw a few people standing around. Cathal was there so we stopped to say hi and he told us that the band enters at this gate and Bono came out the night before to say hi.

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!

awesome.
Yeah, once the crowd get a bit pushy, he is gone.
I have seen him a few times in LA and the crowd know to just keep it mellow or security will take him away. If everyone stay calm, he will stay longer.


congrats btw.

Congrats Kassandra! Me and few people were going to try, but we were in the front of the GA line and they were going to move it up and we weren't allowed to leave

That's so exciting Kassandra!! That's sort of a secret goal of mine. I haven't tried yet, but I'm thinking about it in DC depending on if we're allowed to leave the GA line. at the RS thing!

I was there too. Bono grabbed my cell phone outta my hands and started talking on it. He also shook my hand. I had been waiting there for three hours. Well worth it!
