Vegas II & the "Quest for the Sticks"

Back from Vegas... what a great trip!! Lost too much money in the casinos and spent too much at the spa, but it was a great trip.

We were at the Sat night show, it was fabulous!! Did not make it to the ellipse however we were right at the front rail on the right. I will upload my photos tomorrow in the meantime here are a few from my buddy (her first U2 concert, she is completely converted and was in awe all night)

Now I've spent oodles of money on tickets this year (not complaining, every penny has been worth it, and I’m not even counting the money I’ve spent since 1985) but with 15 shows this year, I only had one chance at GA... I made this elaborate black and red HTDAAB & One campaign sign specifically requesting Larry’s drumsticks (maybe you even saw the sign hanging on the rail or y fancy “The Goal is Soul” Vegas Bling shirt). During City of Blinding Lights opener, Bono noticed the sign right away. I had to sit tight and wait for that moment in Love & Peace…

Now in the end, I am happy to say that I received one of the drumsticks...but I should really have them both which was blatantly obvious to everyone around us… What happened was when the song ended, the staffer who had the drums behind his back mistakenly handed them to a girl 2 people down from me... and she was not about to hand them over. Needless to say, my friends and the very cool people we'd met that evening were shocked at her refusal and gave this gal alot of grief. My dear friend continued to plead with her to do the right thing, and she later reluctantly handed one of them over... It was nice of her and I'm thrilled to have even one…should have been the set but guess that’s the way it goes


PS – if this gal is an interference member, thank you it meant a lot to me
CJ, my Seattle friend on the rail, send me a PM for the full set of photos

More pics to come tomorrow

tbird! I just PM'd you.

I hope to have a few pics to post from a friend who was in the stands here tomorrow. (she must have an amazing camera, because they're great photos!) I just need to get her ok.

Unfortunately, my camera phone has been dropped one too many times and my photos are pretty worthless. Shane recorded part of Love and Peace (I think it's mostly Bono on the drums, though ) I'll try to figure out how to get it from his phone and upload it here too!!

Still high from Vegas2....

I'm happy to have just one, since my stick sister did get the other one.

He wanted to make both of us happy.
