I had a chance in Vegas but unfortunately I was about 5 minutes too late!!__________________
I was on the wrong entrance and by the time I got there Bono had just finished a fan meet that lasted about 20 minutes! so as we waited I was determined just to give it to anyone from U2!! but then about 30 minutes after we heard the U2 sound check and we knew that all the band had arrived.
After the show I booked it to the entrance/exit just in time to see the police motorcade escort a convoy of black SUVs out of the venue (There were a lot of police) and the gate that lead to the entrance/exit was locked until they all pulled away one by one, still my friend and i stood at the gate and waved to all the SUVs and one that i know was Adam waved back @ us! but all this security also had to do with Bill Clinton and Bobby Shriver being @ the show, so it was another FAIL!
The RoseBowl was MADNESS!! I don't know if it was because it was going to be filmed or what but security was fierce!! At one point I went back to the parking lot so I could move my car and also with the intention to scope out the place (having been in the GA line until it was decided how things were going to work out)I took the opportunity to leave my place after I got my number, when I got to the side, near the front of the venue (which was all gated off) I walked to a section where a door was open and I could see the stage (they were testing out the bridges and screen)I could not find an entrance I walked around to the front of the venue, and just kept walking in, until i got stopped by security, they told me I could not be there, I said ok I was just looking, instead of heading back to the parking lot I just walked more around the building (but keeping my distance) I didnt want to get in trouble, I saw crew moving equipment There was signs posted on the gate that read restriced area. but afterwatching the you tube video I knew that was the entrence/exit for the guys. I had just given up and went to get my car.
After the show I waited around and when the crowd thinned out I headed to a section to find a U2-person i knew I could give the book to, to pass on to the band. but when I asked for him, the 2 guys working said they didnt know who I was talking about (yeah right! he has only been with U2 since the start!!) Anyway I couldnt find him anywhere and I was too tired I just left.
There are more dates coming up so I will definately try again, esp @ one of the new venues I'm more familiar with
