So I have a pretty crazy question...
« on: March 09, 2017, 06:02:09 PM »
Crazy and probably unrealistic but how does one go about getting onstage at a U2 show to propose marriage? I've got GA for Philly with my girlfriend. Is there someone in U2's camp that I could propose (ha) this to? I know it's nuts but hey, I've seen it happen. Thanks!

Good luck. Maybe try to talk to Bono himself if he's signs for fans. That's your best bet.

Maybe try talking to the security guards before the concert?  Maybe they can talk to their superiors, who can talk to the management, who can talk to the band. 

If you could hold up a giant sign that says "I WANT TO PROPOSE TO MY G/F ONSTAGE!!!" then it's a pretty decent chance Bono would call you up.  But waving a giant sign around might tip your future wife off to the whole thing.

Don't try and arrange it. Just get really near the B stage on the rail. Have some chutzpa.

Maybe DM the band's official Twitter page? I've heard of other people arranging a proposal this way with other artists. I feel like perhaps whoever is running U2's Twitter may see your message and then pass it onto the band to see if they'd play along with it.

Otherwise, do what miryclay said. I think regardless of how you do it, whether it's on stage or near the stage, it'll still be special for you both.

You'd want to be confident she'll say yes.

A proposal actually happened in Chicago on the 2nd night of the I & E tour. It was before the concert started and I don't know how they arranged it. It was really cool to see. It may be possible. Good luck!

Lol I'm fairly confident after seven years.

The best way is to ask one of the following persons:

1. Brian
2. Rocko
3. Craig Evans

That's not a bad idea. If it's not too much of a trade off, maybe propose on the stage before the concert.

You can also try to get close to the stage and propose during your favorite song when the band is close and if you lucky you can be pulled up to the stage as it happened at Springsteen's concert at MetLife.

It starts at about 3:25, pretty cool I think... Even if you weren't pulled up to the stage by Bono, you would receive massive applause from ppl around  :) Good luck!!!!
