Will I ***EVER*** Get To Meet These Guys?!?!

I have been a fan since the very beginning. Saw them live the first time in a club on the Boy Tour. I was a fan before some of you were even born! And I haven't ever ever not once not a single time nada nein non never ever ever met even one of them! Hell at this point I'd settle for a friend of Ali's manicurist, like the sixth degrees of separation people interviewed in those dodgy unauthorized videos. Will this new upcoming tour FINALLY be my chance? Anyone have any legal non-stalking kinda suggestions for me? Anyone else want to commiserate with me?

lol, and ps I'm not *really* grumpy, I was looking for more of a pouty/ sulky emoticon but the grumpy one looks so cute! It's expression made me laugh.

I hope so! I feel very depressed I haven't met them. I've been a fan since 1983 and I've never met them either! I came very close the last tour but missed anyway! Tours are my only chance, since I am too poor and I have way too many responsibilities to go running off to Dublin or chasing them down wherever they go. Even though I'm happy for people who meet them I must admit I get frustrated and more negative every time I hear a story, like I will be the last U2 fan on earth to ever meet them, or everyone but me will score. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one who never met them, and now that you know me, you will meet them, and come here and tell your story, because I will never meet them!!! Misery loves company, and for now it's good to know I'm not alone. But I soon will be, because you are going to meet them, and so is everyone else here who hasn't already, except me

Lol. I can relate to you in a sort of way. I haven't been a fan for near as long. But, I've never seen nada of any of them, too, and I wonder if I ever will. It doesn't look promising. Lol, and yes, I can understand settling for someone's manicurist. I'm not the one to talk to about legal ways of meeting the band. I've never even tried because I feel like everything is pretty much illegal.

It'll happen. I was a huge Kiss fan growing up and it was my dream to meet them. I finally did and even though I'm not a fan at all anymore, it's still one of my favorite memories. I'm fairly confident that someday, somehow, I'll meet at least one member of U2.

Sorry, this just makes me laugh because it's so cute. You know, I think it makes me laugh because I appreciate the fact that you said in an off-handed way that I'd meet them, then. Someone like me could get every vote of confidence I could muster. And I don't seem to be the only one slightly depressed today because when it comes to U2 I don't seem to be able to go any further. I'm depressed and frustrated today.

Hi girls! I would definitely keep your dreams alive and keep hoping you will meet them.....because hopefully you will!
It was a dream that was out of reach in my head.....for 14 years and then in San Jose I met them... and I still can't believe that I did. I never even thought it was possible...
I hope you all have good luck during the next tour!
to all of you that get sad that you havent met them.

LCK, I think the trick is to try meeting them not at or before a concert. Not that you have to go stalking them in Dublin, b/c that's way to expensive and far away for most, but if Bono comes near where you live for a charity or AIDS benefit, try getting in or meeting him on his way in or out. I've met Bono twice but never at a concert. The friend I was with was meeting Bono for her fourth time and that was just the first time she actually got a picture. Just gotta keep at it and you'll get your turn!

sidenote: the reason I got to meet Bono was b/c I got this fortune cookie that said "you will soon meet the person you admire" so I bought a ticket to the first stop of the Heart of America Tour and after 15 hrs of riding in a car, 24 hrs of living on the freezing winter cement, it worked!

How many people here can say that? That must have been totally cool! Please tell me you've got pictures?!

Join the club. I've loved them since 1983, but I've only seen them in concert ONCE, and that was 1987! Just seeing a second U2 concert would be wonderful; I couldn't even hope to meet one or all of them!

Freaky about the fortune cookie! . *Cues "Twilight Zone" theme music...*

Anywho, hey, at least most of you have been lucky enough to see them in concert. I haven't even had that luxury yet (granted, that's also due to the fact that I've only been a fan for almost two years, therefore causing me to miss out on the Elevation tour, but still...). I could've had my chance in December of 2002 when Bono came through for the Heart of America tour, but due to car problems and the fact that I had school and my parents couldn't get time off from work to take me...I didn't get to. .

I want to meet them so badly, too. Hopefully, with this next tour, or if Bono ever comes near my area again for something, I'll get a chance. I'm highly envious of those of you who've met all of them or one of them, but I do love hearing the stories from you, and am extremely happy for you. .

At least I got to meet someone who knows the band-yeah, it was only for a couple seconds, but still....

I don't want to meet U2, I know that sounds strange as they are my favourite band but I can't justify following them around their homeland trying to meet them, it would be different if I just bumped into them on the street though, hehehe

I want to see them too. I only saw U2 live on one occasion, and that was the Zooropa tour and when I was living in Southern Ireland, but, hey, at least I got to see them on their soil What can I say, it's a beautiful country. I can't wait to see U2 when they next tour. My one dream to meet Bono someday.

Me too. That tour came at an especially bad and difficult time in my life, or I'd have made the drive west and gone for it

I love Bono and he's the one I really want to meet, but I do want to meet the entire band, and the only way to do that is to catch them on tour. Alas, that's what I've tried for all these years and missed out

Good luck to everyone Thanks for the encouragement from some of you, but I have this feeling it will never happen to me. Which gives all the rest of you a better chance.

I agree with livluv I didn't actually talk to him but got pretty close to Bono at the peter and the wolf thing in NYC.

It's not strange. I'm not to keen on following them around either, thought I don't really care if others do. When I met Bono it was kinda by accident, we didn't even know he was in the city, we were just walking around the block, checking out the buildings and we saw his security. They said he could meet us if we stood still back on a curb, so we did!

Angela, sorry to hear about car troubles getting in between you and Bono I was going to steal my dad's car and drive it 15 hours to Nebraska, but luckily my friend got a ticket and her parents let us use their car.

I agree, and here's hoping for both of us that good things will come to those who wait, and destiny will smile on us someday
