  1. I met Adam several times and he is always so cool and patient to sign for every fan

    One funny moment with him happened before the final Dublin I+E gig in 2015.

    We were waiting at the backside of the Arena when as always he took the time to sign for each fan.

    When he approached us the guy next to me asked him: "Do you happen to have a guitar pick on you?"

    Adam replied: "No"

    So the guy next to me said "That is unprofessional Adam!" , causing all of us including Adam to burst in laughter

    But what I think characterizes Adam the most is at the gigs he always makes eye contact with the fans and smiles, you can see he is having a great time.

    Happy Birthday Adam !! all the best wishes #AdamClayton60

  2. #unforgettablegig 

     

    In June 2012 I travelled to Dublin just to see Electric Burma concert and specifically Bono perform in front of a small audience at Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
     

    Electric Burma June 18,2012

     
    After the concert was finished I wandered around Hanover Quay Studios with my friend, while U2's song "Pride" was playing out loud on my phone.
    All of the sudden a black car stops in front of me, and who comes out? Bono!!! after some photos he walked nearby to the after show party leaving me at one of the 
    peaks of my life, changing the gig I just saw from amazing to unforgettable.

  3. On Sunday, June 17 I arrived in Dublin for the second time ever (the first in 2009 for 2 Croke Park shows).
    The main purpose was to attend the Electric Burma concert and also tour U2 landmarks with the great help of Gary Paul.
    After passing several U2 places - Bonavox, Principle Management, Windmill Lane studio we arrived at HQ. We were hoping to 
    find U2 preparing for the show on Monday - Dallas and Sam were there which was a good sign but no one from the band.
    On Monday we started at the court in hope to see Adam and cheer him up, unfortunately he did not show up on that day. 
    From there we went to the Bord Gais area and HQ - again no sign of U2. I waited outside the venue until the last moment possible in 
    hope to meet Bono on the red carpet.
    Eventually I took my seat and after a few moments Bono entered - a few rows in front of me!
    I also recognised Paul McGuinness in the audience.
    During the half time break I managed to catch Paul and get an autograph. Bono left earlier to award the prize and prepare for his performance.
    After the show was over (great performance by Bono) I met with Gary and decided to go to the HQ area again. There 
    we took some more photos and decided to walk back towards the Luas station while "Pride" was playing out on my iPhone speakers (my flight back was the next day).
    Suddenly we saw some photographers near HQ and Roger Moore appeared. A minute later a black car appears in front of me, the door opens and Bono steps out!!!
    I managed to get some photos and 2 autographs, this turned my trip from an excellent one to an unforgettable one.
    Gary - thanks for showing me around, looking forward to my next Dublin trip! Without you this would have never happened.
