Bono, I remember reading about what happened to your mom - maybe in the Cleveland thread, or something? I'm so sorry that had to happen to you both!

So she was okay, it was just the cold weather?

Our Detroit shows were Oct 24th and 25, and I nearly froze those days! The arena is out in the open, in the middle of nowhere, and it was cold, and really windy. I discovered on that trip that I'm not cut out for frigid GA lines.

Oh yeah, I also smacked up my car to the tune of $5,000 in Detroit. But the shows were amazing.

Maybe this isn't the best time to bring this up, but I met Bono, Edge and Larry in Toronto, and got a huge Bono hug. They also signed this print for me that my daughter got me for my birthday, and Bono signed my Bono:In Conversation, as well. I saw them in Chicago, too, but it was really crowded (I was at the other side of the arena you referred to in your essay, Bono_212), and I didn't try to meet him, just stood back and watched in awe.

Sooooooo what's the deal with this Aslan group, because all I can think of when I hear their name is a big fuzzy lion that sounds a lot like one of my favorite actors

Well...I'm heading off to bed....my eyes are starting to get dry from looking at the computer for a bit (The kind of dryness that feels like your eyelids are stuck to your eyeballs).

Night y'all

It was the coolest thing ever! I read enough about them to sort of be aware of their habits. and I know that when they start the new leg of a tour (as they did in Toronto), they always play one night, have a day off which they use to rehearse and work out any bugs, and then they play the next night. Soooo, I just hung around the ACC on their off day. Meeting Larry was a total shock, he's hard to meet, and there were only about 7 or 8 of us out there at the time! Bono drove up an hour or so later and said he was running late, and that he would be out to meet us after rehearsal. So, we hung around at the inner doors and listened the the rehearsal (heard them rehearse Discotheque and Mofo), then went back outside. He came up about an hour later. By then there were maybe 20 or 30 people?? Few enough that he took his time walking down the line, spent a few minutes with each person. It was amazing. He is SO sweet, and generous with his time. A few minutes after I met B, I also met Edge, but I was still in shock from meeting B, so I barely remember poor Edge.


Night Weldy
