Mini golf with U2 and the winner is:

Recommended Posts

Give it up for Paul G. from East Amherst, NY! He’ll play mini golf and drink a not-so-mini pint with U2 backstage, all before watching the band do what they do best: rock out live in concert. 

Hey Paul...hoping you are a U2.com member...I am so wanting to be your new best friend and I bet we have a lot in common ;)
Look to be about the same age...fan since 1980 here, how about you?

Got my email about that too.  Congratulations to him.  I'm sure he is going to have quite a bit of fun.

Ha great idea to try to be his new best friend, LOL!  I know the chances are so slim....but...I was still sad it was not ME!!!  I can't think of anything else I would want in life. I have a good spouse and healthy kids and a roof over my head, so hanging out with U2 is pretty much the only other thing I would ever want.  Have fun, Paul!!!

Trying to picture U2 playing mini golf is fun.  I can't imagine how excited he must be.  Congrats, Paul G.

Not me! LOL But I can't complain. I hope he enjoys himself and that the donations people put forth to enter are rightfully distributed to the people who need it.

Right on! My world is similar...very blessed in life and family!

I did get to meet B&E in 2009 outside the Letterman show...tall guy black leather jacket that unbeknownst to me, I was being filmed by a random fan's friend and I think they were right next to me. A bit embarrassingly, I played a few of my man cards..."I Love You Bono" as he walked away from me and I then later shouted, "Can I get a man hug?!" There are times when I feel like I am still 15 when I listen to or connect with U2. My daughter (12 at the time) and I were front row, touching the e stage in New York right by Edge's guitar rack and had 'moments' with both Adam and Edge...the shrug and quirky smile that Edge gave me asI applauded loudly after one of the few performances of Lucifer's Hands...LOVE these guys and as many have said, U2 is TRULY the soundtrack and the musical landscape of my life.

Yes I am on here! Ive been a fan since around 1983, thanks to my brother.

My wife and I are still in shock...never in a million years expected to be selected.  This is most definitely a bucket list item to remember forever.  We still haven’t gotten all the details of when this will happen.   Hopefully, we will be able to hold it together and have a normal conversation without seeming too starstruck.   Thanks for the well wishes!  

Paul

Congratulations, Paul!! That is just so great, that you have been a fan since 1983 and get to have this experience with them. Tell us how it goes after it happens!!
