Bono at the Univ. of Penn !!!

Just got back a little while again from the speech. Very good stuff. Got to meet Bono on his way out of the venue before the reception. Amazing stuff. I go to Penn so it was even sweeter to meet him on my campus for the second time. Will post pictures later.

I had the People Get Ready sign from Philly ... I showed it to him and thanked him for dedicating the song to me, ...

me: "Bono, thank you so much for people get ready, that song means so much to me, you've always said three chords and you can change the world, you've inspired me to change the world."

he thanked me, and reached out to shake my hand....

... AMAZING!!!

heehee... i hear you! i just graduated from Columbia in May- Bono never came, even though Jeff Sachs is a prof there!

Congrats to the original poster- it's awesome that Bono dedicated a very special performance to you!!

ah, yes... there are already photos up in Pleba.

glad to hear that the talk was fun- i was fortunate to hear Bono speak at Penn graduation a couple of years ago (my dad works there and got me a ticket), and it was really fantastic! that man definitely has a way with words.

see the guy with the unforgettable fire album (shoving it in Bono's face) he was very scary ... he ran along side Bono's car in traffic all the way to the Museum, the location of the reception the driver seemed to be trying to get away from him, they had to turn through a red light - he said to me "nobody is going to stop me" he was very scary! I have never seen anyone be so pushy or do that to Bono before, people like that ruin it for all the others waiting...
