I met Edge and Bono in Copenhagen!

Yes not only did U2 put a fantastic show despite the rain, I met Edge and Bono outside their hotel on saturday afternoon and got their autographs! As Bono was signing my HTDAAB book I said "Please try and make it to Finland next time" and he replied "Yeah, it was bad that we didn't make to Finland this time" or words to that affect!! I'm still in shock!! And my photo also appeared in the sunday edition of the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet, with my friend, of us waiting for U2. That's me, Celebrian, the girl with the reddish brown hair. Anyone out there see it and can give me a translation of the caption ?! Meeting Bono and Edge and the wonderful concert on sunday more than made up for all the expence and travelling all the way from Finland to see U2 live in Copenhagen!!

I met them too on Sunday before the concert... I didn't have anything they could have signed, so I just stood there like an idiot and smiled and said "hello"... anyway here you can see just how close Bono was:

Wow Ava, that's a great photo of Bono you got there! My friend Nienor, who was also there, took lots of good photos too and will be sending me them soon.

Great afternoon...

Hi,
I was also there in front of the hotel(on Saturday), and took some pretty good photos. Now I'm would be very happy if someone who was on the other side maybe could sent me the photos they took, You know I might be in on of them, and you might be in mine. If you stand with your bag to the hotel-door, I was on the right.
Also if you post the danish text, from the newspaper, I will be happy to tanslate it.
What a great weekend this was, and the show where fantastisk.
Christina

Thanks Helen! I will e-mail you real soon, once I have a day off (that would be Sunday) and enough time to go through all my pictures from Copenhagen. I guess we both have a story or two to tell!

A translation?! That's great!!

Hi Christina, that would be great it you could post a translation here on this website, here it is as it appeared in Danish;-

Det kan vaere både koligt og småkedeligt at vente på sine idoler. U2s fans var ikke just glaedessprudlende, men da stjenerne omsider kom ud, klarede ansigterne op.

I can make out the words 'cold' and 'wait' but that's it! So thanks!



Hi Ava, I was also there on the Sunday between 13:00 and 15:00 before going off to the stadium, when where you there?

how hard was it to meet them?

were there a lot of other people there?

i'm always really impressed whne people say they've met members of U2, because it seems so hard to do, since EVERYONE wants to meet them too, you know?

It can be both chilly and a little boring waiting for your idols. U2's fans weren't excactly bubbling with joy, but when the stars finally appeared their [the fans'] faces lit up.

Thanks ThomasH for the translation! I don't know why the reporter thought we were cold (!?!) if anything I was sweating buckets!!

It was pure luck Tuwie, my friend read about which hotel U2 staying at from a Danish daily newspaper, it was just around the corner from my B&B and we waited for only 45 minutes before first Edge than Bono came out.

Cool.

I was at the concert as well, but I had no clue where they were staying - and honestly hadn't tried to find out. Instead I was warming up with some of my friends watching ZooTV from Sydney. If the papers were referring to sunday afternoon it was definately fine weather - until that huge rain shower that is

I met Bono and Edge on the Saturday (30th July) afternoon around 4:00 p.m. ( the paper, Ekstra Bladet, with the photo of myfriend and myself came out the next day i.e. Sunday) and it was warm and sunny at the time.
