A U2 Wedding
Yes, I have an announcement...your full attention please. I am happy to announce that my girlfriend Laurie and I are now engaged. Why is this signifigant? Let me share...

I met Laurie last Nov. 23rd in the GA line for the second Phoenix show of the Elevation Tour. We stayed in touch and eventually fell madly in love. We are each others best friends and there is nothing better than sharing our second love, U2. Our apartment is quite literally a shrine. (Embarassing at times when our non U2 friends come over). Laurie was lucky enough to meet Bono and Adam in June outside Hanover Quay in Dublin and was recognized by Bono. He asked her "what she was doing here?" and looked very surprised to see her. You see, Laurie went to 27 shows on the tour, myself only 9...but 3 of them we were both at. Phoenix was my last show, and now I have the best souvenier I could ever have dreamed of.

Just thought some of you might be interested...dream out loud.

that is a very nice story, and thank you for sharing. I also fell in love with a big U2 fan, but our story doesn't end as happily. after a 2 year romance, due to some slight of hand and twist of fate, we both married other people. we keep in touch, but the only things we have to tell each other about are sad memories and nostalgia for things that weren't meant to be.

That's great, congrats!

Well, that's good to know now, I only need to save up to see 27 shows next tour and then Bono should recognize me too! :hyper:

woohoo! isn't it cool to meet significant others at U2 shows? [ok, I'm biased but whatever].

What a beautiful story! Congratulations!!

Just think...in a way U2 brought you guys together. :up:

Congratulations on your engagement! :).

Just make sure you have a version of the song cut off at the end... that orchestra bit at the end of the album version goes on for like 3 minutes after the song's over, you don't wanna be dancin' for 6 minutes, there's beer to drink and stupid dances to one hit wonders to do!

It does bring up a good point though... what would be a good U2 wedding song? AIWIY is prolly the best choice, but still doesn't have the ideal slow dance flow to it... With or WIthout You would be perfect, but very hard to dance to. Hmmm... I wonder

Congrats guys

what a bomb! 01-20-2003 01:29 PM

If she went to 27 shows, I can only guess you are engaged to a millionairess! :wave:

Yes you can dance to All I Want Is You cos couples get up to smooch when I sing it at karaoke!

congrats, and be careful, the band keeps track of its souvenirs, in a loving way, of course...

AdamsMango 01-20-2003 09:41 PM

I think i need one, some one to finally fully understand me! he'd be the only person who would understand me! everyone else thinks I am insane! any way.. :hug: and congrats and good luck! :D
