I finally met Bono and Edge!! Seattle 2, AND Bono drew a picture of my daughter!!

After 20 years of waiting I finally met Bono and The Edge!! I took my 10 year old daughter and my husband to the show today 4/25 and arrived early to try and meet them before the soundcheck. We got there at 3 pm and waited with the rest of the crowd. We saw Dallas, Bono's bodyguard, and the other usual people. Bono's bodyguard then announced that "B" will be here in about 15 minutes to meet and talk with everyone. I couldn't believe it!!!! Finally after all these devoted years I was actually going to see them and maybe get a an autograph, or a good picture. Everyone lined up and waited patiently. Edge was the first to arrive. It was mind blowing that he was walking right up to me. I of course had my pen and a special edition U2 Ireland stamp envelope that I had saved for a few years. My daughter was standing in front of me and my husband had the camera ready. While he was signing I just stared at him in awe. He is such a gentle person, and he looked great too.
Bono then arrived after a while, and started greeting everyone down at our end first. I was shaking, my heart was racing, and my daughter was looking at me like I was crazy When he stopped in front of us to sign his name I said to him "You have a new fan (meaning my 10 year old) and he stopped and looked down and said "Oh hello, what is your name?" she said "Emily." He then turned the envelope over and started drawing her face on the paper, drawing like an artist would. He took a long time, wrote her name on it, and then signed his own. I couldn't believe what was happening. I said thank you a few times, and hugged my daughter. She still didn't really know what the big deal was.
All she knew was that this man who she grew up hearing daily drew a picture of her and everyone was going crazy over it People were actually taking pictures of his drawing.
The good news is that we got some GREAT photos of Edge and Bono, the bad news is that the memory card became full while we Bono was standing with us drawing. WE HAVE NO PHOTOS OF HIM WITH MY DAUGHTER!! If anyone was there and somehow got a photo of us I would be so grateful to see it. She was wearing a black UNFORGETTABLE FIRE tour shirt, and sunglasses.
I still can't believe this happened. Of course my 13 year old daughter, who I took to see U2 for the first time on Sunday, is soooo jealous of her younger sister. Now she is on a quest to meet Bono
As soon as I figure out how, I will add my photos, and the scanned drawing that will proudly hang in our house for years to come

annej5, that is the COOLEST meeting I think I've heard from this tour so far!! Maybe in a year or two, your (younger) daughter will come to understand and appreciate what an amazing piece of artwork she has.

Can't wait to see your pics!! Congratulations again!

We showed up at about 3 and there were already about 50 people there. After we found out Bono was coming out many more people showed up, some people called their friends in the GA line. By the time Bono showed up there I would guess close to 100 people? Someone else might have a better estimation. Everyone lined up along the street and if you were right on the curb he stopped and met with you. The people behind probably just got photos. We were lucky to have found a good spot

Ok, I think I did this but not sure. Here is the scan of the drawing Bono made of my daughter. I hope it comes out. I will post the photos later after my husband gets them out of the camera and fixes them up
If this doesn't work I will keep trying.

I tried to fix it for you but you didn't have the complete Snapfish address for the picture. Snapfish addresses are really long so when you click properties, you have to scroll down to get the complete address.

Can't wait to see the scan!

I see 2 lines of the address but then 2 more lines at the top of the properties page. Do I have to add that too?

Yeah. But if you copy the address part but keep scrolling down, you can get the complete address that way, too. It would look something like...

Great story!
What time did Bono actually arrive to meet fans?
I am going to try to meet them in Vancouver on Thursday and was wondering when I should be in line.
thanks!

YEAH!!!I did it!!

Here is Bono and Edge's autographs on the reverse side of the envelope. We are going to have to carefully separate the two sides so we can frame both.
