Tech Crew & Security Shirts From Miami Show
Holy Crap. Ok, my friend here Ally or Alice just infomed me that the Miami show, the last of the tour, the tch and security crew had shirts on that said "Schoo 2: Closer to the Edge" in place of U2 Elevation Tour. On
the back, they said "Special Guest U2".
Ok thats almost the same thing my shirt said that I made for and gave to Dallas at the Baltimore show....
let me refresh your memories.....
Friday, October 19th in Baltimore I found out firsthand! I was 'Stuck In A Moment'.......a Dallas Schoo moment.
I had marked my spot in the heart on Edge's side about 10 feet from the stage. That in itself was mindblowing! Then after the opening band finish the tech crew comes to start soundchecking. We call out Dallas' name and he looks over and gives us a thumbs up and waves! That made my year. It could have all stopped there and I still would have been on cloud nine. So he ventures out on the heart right in front of us and we again "Dallas Dallas"....he looks down and smiles at us.....what a super guy!!!! I think I used an entire roll of film solely on him! But it still doesnt stop here!
Now I should add that I had a Dallas Schoo vneck shirt made before the concert. It had simply his name on the front with a #2 under it. And on the back it said 'close to the edge'.
Well after the show, which of course blew everyone away, the tech crew are shutting things down. So I took the shirt and threw it to him on stage. I yelled to him that that was for him. He picked it up, chuckled, and thanked me. He took the shirt down to his area under the stage. About 5 seconds later he comes out and comes toward me.....Dallas Schoo was coming towards me!!!!!!! And gives me a U2 crew tshirt!!!!!!!! I about fainted! Dallas Schoo gave me a crew tshirt!!!! I was floored! Still am to be honest! So after I could walk a few feet I turned and made eye contact with him again. I gave him a thumbs up and thanked him as he did the same and waved. I don't know if it gets any better than that.....for me anyway.
So next time you see the best band in the world. Don't forget they have the best people working for them too!!!!! Schoo too!!!!
