U2's Hotels in Oz

Just curious to know if anyone can remember which hotels u2 stayed in Australia for the Popmart tour, or has any idea where they might be staying this time. My kids would love to get an autograph or photo.

if it is not allowed to post such info in this forum i have put my email below.

thanks in advance

I'll give Mr Serious the proper answer...

Quay West for both Zoo and Pop, which is right next door to the ANA (now called the Shangri-La).

they stayed in coolum on the sunnie coast last time they came to brisbane in 1998. wouldnt be suprised if they just fly in and out on the day of the show though. seems to be the way these days. i'd like them to stay here tho! brisbane is a different city from when they last stayed here in 1993.

also, i really want to stalk them!

They stayed at the Hyatt hotel during their 1993 Adelaide Zoo Tv concert. I know because somebody I know was standing in the elevator, and looked to her right, and saw who else but Bono! She got the shock of her life.

Hey I was there! Well to be accurate I was on the edge of the very large group and I have a lovely picture of the top of Bono's head.

Actually Bono looks that pissed off cos as soon as he stepped out of the hotel everyone rushed him and screamed their lungs out. I was ready to slap them all with my copy of "The U2 File" (which I never got autographed )

Happily I did see the band the morning they left Sydney and I got a wave from Bono as the car sped out of the hotel. You take what you can get!

I saw Bono purely by accident after the Popmart show. Blind drunk, leaving the Slip Inn. Bono that is. I was blind drunk entering the Slip Inn.

If you were both blind drunk, how do you know it was Bono and not Elvis???? And for that matter, how do you know it was you anyway???????

I think a few of the Aussie players are fans too, but they will be long gone in South Africa when the tour rolls round.

I know for sure there are a lot of NZ'ers who are big fans and I'm sure any injuries that prevent Messers McCullum, Vincent, Oram and Franklin from playing in the 17-21 March Test vs West Indies @ Wellington will have a silver lining.
