Writing to U2....

Has anyone ever had any luck getting replies to fanmail to U2? If so, at what address? Thanks

Ha, a few days ago I was just wondering what kind of luck people had had with fanmail and where they'd sent it to ...

I just mailed a few letters to several addresses today, but the only time I tried before was last summer. I sent a letter to Windmill Lane and got a promo photo/postcard about a month later. Not bad, I must say.

I wrote the band c/o Windmill Lane in 1997 and got a postcard back from Cecilia saying my letter had been passed on to the band. I've written c/o PM before and have gotten no response.

I am sure they get fan mail or fan e-mail's but they must get lots of them that it is hard to keep up with let alone respond to it but I am sure some mail gets passed down to them

Hmm, I've been thinking about writing to see if their people would send me something free. I would never expect a personal response, but a free U2 picture would look nice on my wall.

I knew someone who wrote to Bono,. As he didn't know his address he wrote on the envelope saying 'Please Mr Postman could you post this to Bono'.

Amazingly a few weeks later, he got a signed photo back from the man himself.

And that's a true story. I did the same and got no reply!

i wrote to larry at windmill lane in 1991, and sent a picture i had drawn and he signed it and about 6 months later he sent it back.
it is still my prized piece of u2 memorabilia.
