  The 360 is my Favourite !!!! Love this Photo, I'm so happy for yout that you attended such a MIracle of a Tour !!!!!!!!

Oh, really?! ^_^
Thank you so much. :)
I was lucky enough to attend to several U2's gigs (I love every U2 gig I've seen!) but the second night in Zurich was epic.
Two more pictures taken by me that night, I hope you don't mind. :)

During the encores, after a lot of rain, the zoom of my camera didn't work... damn!
Better than nothing... shirtless Adam: pure Rock 'n' roll!!

I'm not a big photo taker at concerts but here are the first and last photos with Adam in that I took.  Croke Park 29 June 1985 ( he is there I promise!) and Gocheok Sky Dome Seoul 8 December 2019 (I've got his back).  What a journey it's been.

The Peak Of My Existence

24th June 2018, I was visiting NYC to see three U2 shows at MSG. Living in London and after 2 back to back shows in Boston I wasn’t really in a mood for another busy city madness. Passing Times Square, walking up the 5th Avenue I was wondering WTF I was doing there (NYC is freaking overcrowded during summer months) and I was even thinking if I should sell my tickets (stupid!) and buy a flight ticket to Miami or Cuba… I stopped at a crosswalk and at the other side there he was, Adam Clayton all by himself!!! OMG, OMG, Adam, what do I do, what do I, what do I do????????????? One thing I knew for sure, I was going to talk to him. So I grabbed his shoulder in the middle of the crosswalk saying “Hello Adam, how you doing? (no biggie, it’s just another old mate of mine 🙂), sorry to bother you…” I was going to ask him for a picture or at least to thank for the music, and here he was starting a casual chat with me. I was in the middle of a life crisis and obviously freaking out! and managed to tell him I didn’t like NYC that much (I like NYC, I’m just not that fond of Times Square). I just couldn’t believe he was really talking to me just about stuff…At the end I asked him for a picture and he was like “I hope my hair in not too bad” and I was like “Oh, come on! (you know, old friend of mine 🙂). How I managed not to die and act quite normal I don’t know… After that I met Adam few more times in the meet and greet lines and he was always lovely making time for all fans. As you can hear from stories of many other fans, he truly is the sweetest guy ever!

So very happy birthday Adam, thank you for everything!
