Did ANYONE get a pic of Edge laughing at my sign in Montreal???

Yes folks, for maybe 90 seconds I had Bono and Edge's undivided attention in Montreal! Here's what happened:

As many of you know, I am a HUMONGOUS Edge fanatic. So much so, that I decided to make my first concert sign, which read: "No Offense Bono, but I want to dance with THE EDGE!" (with a big heart) I knew it would have to be short and sweet, but also unusual. I was a bit worried that it would insult Bono, but then again, I don't think he gets insulted that easily, and furthermore, he loves the Edge so much, I figured he'd get a kick out of it.

Although I was very nervous, and felt kind of like an idiot holding it up and then putting it down when they weren't looking, right when they started Angel of Harlem, I decided to hold up my sign again. It looked like Edge had read the sign (he had a vague smile) but it was hard to tell. Then they did Staring at the Sun, and I tried again. At the end of the song, I held it up for Bono, who stood and read it. It's a strange feeling knowing that THE Bono is reading YOUR sign. This small smile came on his face, which became a grin. He looked right at me and made this gesture like "Oh, I'm sorry, but I just can't! There's nothing I can do!" Then I thought that was it, so I put the sign away, feeling very excited that Bono had looked at me. Edge had made his way along the ramp towards the front. Suddenly, I noticed that Bono had gone after Edge and was talking to him. Then they began to search the crowd a few feet away from me. I began to panic. "Meee! It was meeeee!" I screamed. I held up the sign again, and they both looked at me. Bono laughed and Edge read the sign. Edge then burst out laughing and gave me the most adorable, crinkly, Edgie smile you have EVER SEEN! I would have done ANYTHING for a picture of that!!! So this brings me to my question. Does anyone out there know anyone who was near the Edge rail and might have taken a picture of him laughing? If so, I WOULD REALLY like to get a copy of this picture!

Anyway, this is me making a big fuss about something that happened so quickly, but it was so exciting. This is the great thing about Bono. Not only can he take a little teasing, but he could have just gone, oh, ha ha, cute and moved on, but he actually GOT THE EDGE for me! What a sweetie. I LOVE BONO. He made my night!

Now I have to come up with a great follow up sign for Vegas. I would have put it up in Hamilton, but the People Get Ready guy beat me to it.

Anyway, today I am totally bagged, because between Montreal and Hamilton, we got NO sleep for 48 hours!!!! It was so worth it though. I have a splitting headache and heartache that it's over. If it weren't for Vegas, I'd be suicidal!!! AAAGGGHHH! Why couldn't Bono have just pulled me up to hug Edge for 2 seconds?!?!?! Now I have to go through this agony again in Vegas!

Oh, BTW, the funniest part about being in the GA line was the reaction that Steve got. (I really need to get some pics where Steve isn't smiling, because that's when he REALLY looks like Edge) We would walk along the line and people would spontaneously shout "The Edge The Edge!" just like they do with the real thing! Another guy yelled "Salut, The Edge!" from the other end of the line! At least 20 people came up to get photos with Steve. It was very bizarre, but so much fun!

Anyway, I hope everyone going to the shows has an AWESOME time, I know you will. And for everyone going to Vegas, SEE YOU THERE!

That is so awesome Mrs Edge!! I'm happy that The Edge read your sign,I'm sure he loved the attention!!!!!!!!

I kind of know how you felt, I didn't have his attention for that long, but I did get a smile from the Edge at the 2nd Philly show back in June!!! I wore this green feather boa, and when they walked out in the very beginning, I was jumping up and down like a mad woman and waving my boa in the air!! Edge caught a glimpse of me after he put his guitar on, and he gave me the cutest little smile!!! He probably thought I was a freak, but who cares! HE kept on smirking at me throughout the show as well!!! I'm not sure if I'm going to bring the boa along on Nov 2nd yet.... We will see!

Go luck in Vegas!!!

Aaawww Jessica, that's a sweet sign you made for The Edge!
That's why you received the beautiful Edge smile in reward.

Hey Mrs Edge,

I thought of you during the day in Montreal...I was standing on the street corner near the Molson Centre around 12:30 or 1pm when I saw this guy who was a deadringer for Edge!
I looked closer and noticed it wasn't him but remembered you saying your husband (?) looked just like him - I figured it MUST have been!
There can't be too many Edge look-alikes walking around!

By the way, I think I remember this occurring the nite of the show...I remember Bono going after Edge and talking to him...very cool to hear why!

Thanks you guys! It's so much more fun telling these things to people who GET IT (unlike the people at the office who smile vaguely). Hopefully that picture will turn up somewhere.

Johnny, I look forward to reading about your new found fame!

ladywithspinninghead, that was probably us that you saw! OliveU2cm has pictures of us in her Montreal pictures thread. It's too bad Steve is smiling, but you get the general idea. You also can see the shirt I had made!

My own Montreal photos turned out REALLY WELL if I do say so myself. Will post them the minute I get home.

Things accomplished at work today:

1) Nothing work related
2) Scanned all my U2 pics!

Oh, Mrs Edge, I love your story!!!

I'm also an Edge girl and I bet he was thrilled to read your sign. I'm grinning ear to ear!

Thanks for letting Edge know that there are some ladies out here who think he's the cat's meow! Hope to see pictures soon too!

Magic Markers = $3

Posterboard = $1.50

General Admission Tickets = $45

The look on Edge's face when he finds out you want to dance with him = PRICELESS!

What a great pic! Congrats Mrs. Edge!!!!!
