I'm excited to report I shook hands with our man at NJ-1!  My husband and I got to the stadium early and while we waited for the rest of our family to show up we took a stroll around the stadium and stumbled upon the band entrance.  We waited a bit and sure enough here comes Bono in his big black SUV.  He stopped and came out and talked with the fans.  Unfortunately I had nothing for him to autograph and all I could get out of my mouth was hi.  He was so polite, shook my hand and said hi how are you.  Of course later on I thought of a million things I could have said.  I'm just glad to have met him.

I managed to see Bono up close in Cleveland--what an experience!  He was so kind to people in the audience. He definitely has more lines than a lot of 57 year olds I know.  Do you think that's due to smoking and the rigors of so much travel? Nevertheless, he's beautiful just as he is.

Wow! That's awesome - what a great experience. I'd probably cry if I saw B-Man in real life, haha. It's lovely that he remains so kind and humble despite how famous he is. Unfortunately, I do think his lines are due to the many years of smoking - I've seen very similar lines/creases on other people in their fifties who have smoked a lot during youth. Other causes or contributors could certainly be the travel, or stress. Nonetheless, he's still gorgeous.

You must not have been far from me. He was about 2 feet from me when he stopped signing. I was a bit heartbroken because I thought I was finally going to meet him. Then I realized it was the closest I had ever been  to him and I'm happy with that for now. He is still gorgeous. I think he burns the candles on both ends too much and it's catching up to him.

Yes; we must have been close, Teacher.  I stupidly gave up my place in line to run to the other side of the stadium.  I regret not sticking around and holding my spot, but it was great to see Bono up close!

Listening to U2's latest Rome gig I have to say Bono sounds very sexy when he speaks Italian! That man seems to learn languages pretty easily, doesn't he? :-)

That photo of JT era Bono is from his unparalleled phase.  He was a gorgeous youth I must say.
