For those of you who went to Oakland...

Out of curiosity...did anyone spot the band anywhere before or after shows? Do you know if they stayed in a local hotel (SF, Oakland)? Tosca's???

Hey loves...
Its an L.A. Twin here...I went to both Oakland shows and the band did runners after each one. They might have stayed a while in the bay area but I know for a fact that they cam back to L.A. where they were staying for all the west coast shows. Hope that helps. See ya all in Miami!!

Well Sicy has some pics in a thread a few pages back. Is it ok Sicy to post your album?

The preshow for the VH1 special showed Bono greeting the crowd in Oakland.

But all I heard was that they were jetting in from LA direct for the show. I'll have to check those stories!

Sure would to see more pics too if anyone has any .

Yes, *sigh* debbiesg, I was waiting both days for Bono too, and Thursday was the day we were in GA, we waited outside from about 3 to 4:30, but then went back to the GA line, the next day they told me that VH1 was filming and that the band arrived at 6:40ish.
I got a pic with this adorable dog that came out with one of the crew, the cutest little thing had on a "U2 crew pass" with his pic on it! And on Friday I got Edge's autograph on my ZooTV program and on my Boy album cover...


I would post it, but my scanner is messed up
debbie- check your e-mail, I wrote ya!

From SF Gate:

Bono schmoozes at the Clift Hotel
by Beth Lisick

Metallica's Lars Ulrich, No Doubt's Gwen Stefani and producer
Jerry Harrison were among the revelers at the Clift Hotel after
U2's Oakland Coliseum shows last weekend. And for those
dying to know what assumed name Bono came up with for the
hotel registry, the answer is Mr. J.C. Penney.

November 26, 2001
From The San Francisco Chronicle:

This 'n' That

Irish rockers U2 stayed at the Clift and partied in the Spanish suite
after their recent concert. Hotelier Ian Schrager, in town for meetings,
breakfasted with singer Bono, who asked not for boiled bacon and
tomatoes but poached eggs and toast instead.

U2SJ, thanks for the links, and I'll get back to that email soon! Great you got Edges autograph and a picture...I think elevatemysoul did too. I of course had to keep my perfect record of missing Edge and Bono. Ah well, just wasn't meant to be!

May Elevation live on...HEART and SOUL!!!
