I can imagine! I'm not even going and I'm getting that zingly feeling with the anticipation of it, really excited for everyone who's going and can't wait to read everyone's posts about it. Thing is you can't wait for the day to come but then you don't want it to end either! Are you going to any other gigs?

Hee hee!  Me too Zhiv; provided I don't faint.  & I'd love for him to hand over his shades to me.  He's got plenty, so share the wealth, right?
wink.gif

That makes me laugh. I was chatting with my daughter the other day. She has no idea that we are going seeing them. And she was talking about shows and concerts. And I asked her who she would like to see - Michael Buble she said (she has a huge crush on him) so jokingly I asked her if she would like to see U2 in concert. Her answer was that it would be really cool but only if we could be at the front and Bono would get her on stage and let her wear his glasses!! Would love it if that happened!

 

Now that would be WICKED COOL if he were to pull her up and dance with her and then give her his glasses!  But boy howdy, would Mama be jealous?!
wink.gif

 

Oh it would be one jealous Mama - but a very happy one too!! And anyone who knows my daughter will know that she would tell him that I think he is hot and that he is the real father of my daughter!! - She's a good girl she'd get me a kiss too!!
So, I see that you've properly trained her!!! Think of the scandal you could create in the papers the next day . . . Bono is father of blonde English girl . . . kisses mother on stage 
roll.gif

 

Oh, I can just read the headlines now! laugh.gifroll.giflaugh.gifroll.giflaugh.gif

 

I'm grinning at the thought of all that! Especially the kissing bit!! Going to be so disppointed if it doesn't happen (not the headlines part just the rest of it!)

Not that exciting, LOL! Last night Bono was sending drinks to everyone, but the night before, it was an awful dream. I dreamt that we couldn't find the stadium and that we went too late after the show was over!!!

Yes, that part was a nightmare!!! I used to have a similar dream in college when we had to go at different times to take exams. Not sure why I dreamt this, we have never been late to a show . . . unless you count the first night of Vertigo in Las Vegas when I ended up in the emergency room and missed the concert :((((( That was a living nightmare!!!

That is hell!!! It must have been the veritgo tour curse. I ended up with Tuesday tickets instead of Wednesday. We had to drive from Birmingham to Manchester in rush hour traffic - and got there about 6:30 - and only had GA tickets. We were expecting to be right at the back. We managed to get pretty close to the front which were happy about. And then people began to move and we were in the right place at the right time - 200 more were allowed into the inner stage and we were there! So lucky!!!

Yes, very lucky!!!!! I was soooooo mad. When we left for the airport, I felt a little quesy, but just though it was pre-flight nerves. Next morning, I woke up and searched for coffee. I was just about to order, when I bolted back to the room and spent the entire day throwing up. My husband took me to the emergency room and they hooked me up to an IV to get some fluids back into me. Of course, then I was perfectly fine, but the concert was ending. Sooooo glad to have had tickets to the second night and it was an awesome show!!!

Glad to hear that you made one show! I would have needed so much fluid in the hospital to replace the water from the tears!

Honestly, I just was so relieved to feel better I didn't cry about the concert. I hung my head a lot and was very quietly angry though. My husband's stupid jokes about too much drinking were really, really irritating too!!! He still thinks it's funny and I still get mad at him for it!!!

Why do men always remember the none funny things? Yet never remember the really funny stuff!

He doesn't remember me feeling bad before the flight . . . . granted, I did drink too much and I'm sure it didn't help, but was definitely flu, not a hangover problem . . . . he just has a stupid sense of humor!!!

There's a big difference between flu and a hangover and I know that it would have been flu - no sane person when risk a hangover the morning of a U2 show!
