Where were you when you saw Bono drive by? I waited for 3 hours to see him and just saw him drive by quickly. I was at the back of the arena. It looks like you were out front. Is that right?

Awesome Pics! I think I was right around you outside the elipse! On the Edge's side right? Although, I think I only got one decent pictrue from my stupid disposable camera. Thanks for sharing the pics!!

I was hanging out outside waiting for the band, too. It wasn't bad though. I have to say that the guy who got the bread from the truck was hilarious.

I waited from 1:30 to 4:30 for something to happen. I then figured nothing was going to happen so I went to go get food at the Citizens Bank Park, and on the walk back I hear a scream only to find out that Bono drove past while I was gone.

anyone know why they were so late? we heard them soundchecking COBL at 6 pm. saw them going into the airport immediately after the show. did they fly down from nyc, or get stuck in traffic? the show seemed to be running behind schedule.

from what i've heard they were staying in canada... something to do with lower taxes on the hotels or something... probably had some sort of flight delay, probably the reason for the late arrival. the quick exit was expected... heading back to canada until tuesday i do believe.

There was a One Campaign event in Philly that day, from 12-2. That's were Bono probably was; maybe he went and had lunch after and by the time he came in it was 4:30 or so. I walked by the crowd waiting for him to go get food over at the baseball stadium, and I saw a guy drive up and deliver a pizza to someone in the little crowd there. That was awesome.

Jammin, I was very near you in front of the ellipse. I was just a little to the right of you. I think my hand might be in some of your pics, lol. Great pictures.
