Just got back from Manchester - met Adam :):)

OK, very knackered right now but very happy

We went to the first Manchester show and had a brilliant time We were on the front row of the walkway nearest Edge and got smiled at by Edge, Adam and Bono!!

Anyway, we went to the hotel yesterday (wed) and managed to arrive 45 mins after Bono and Edge had left and were told by some other fans there that they had both chatted with them for 10 mins Larry and Adam had also left but didnt sign. This was about 13.30 and we decided that that was early to leave for the soundcheck so we hoped they may come back.

At about 17.00, one of the Mercs arrived and Adam got out! We called to him and he waved and told us he would be out later! He didnt disappoint! He came out an hour later, wandered over to us and chatted, signed stuff and posed for photos with us! There was only about 20 fans there so it was really nice! Adam was lovely and very chatty. I told him the gig had been fantastic and my sister told him it had been our first gig and he gave us both really lovely smiles and said thanks. He signed my actung baby CD cover and a pic for my sis Lisa. He then told us he had to go and rushed off. It was amazing though, we are so glad we decided to wait around!

Also, I had taken along some Godiva chocolates that I had hoped to give to Bono but realised I wasnt gonna be lucky this time so I gave them to Adams security guy to give to Bono and he promised he would. Once Adam had come out, he said to me again "And we'll get your chocolates to that lead singer!" I told him i had written my email address and he said "what on the card? No problem!" Imagine if I got an email from Bono!!

Anywayz, we got some great pix of Adam which I'll post soon. All in all, an amazing couple of days!!!!!!!!

You're very lucky, I hope you get an email from Bono. And if you do, you better forward it to me.

Very cool that you got to meet him. He's one of the more elusive ones but it sounds like he does enjoy the fans. What a cool guy
