Yes, he does have a great smile, and seems to love the fans, or at least seems to enjoy performing for them. Wonderful stage presence.

My impression of Adam is that he is very grateful for his life/work and also very humble.  He also really seems to enjoy life on his own terms.

Girls, check out this high quality video of Adam signing outside Vancouver stadium... at 1.30am!

He looked great, I wondered if the lady beside him was his wife Mariana, but probably not. The lady was probably U2 staff (not security as she looked too skinny). Also, Adam's usual bodyguard (the tall guy) was there. Anyone know the tall guy bodyguard's name?

I think she's one of the personal assistants, but could be a bodyguard. You never know if she's a badass! . It's definitely not the wife.

Bodyguards name is Jerry and I'm betting money he's ex-military.

Thanks! Her being a personal assistant makes sense. Maybe if anyone gave Adam an gifts, she would carry it.

I would have to watch again to hear Jerry's voice. Wonder if he's Irish/European (like Brian Murphy) or if Jerry is American!

He has a soft Irish or British accent. Quiet guy, but very watchful.

I noticed Adam using pedals during the intro of Streets. Never saw him doing that before, or has he always been doing that? For me at least this is new...

Just passing through The Band section as I tend to do once in a blue moon...

And I just wanted to say that this is the only place on the internet where I would have ever discovered that Adam has rock hard abs! This has truly been an enlightening experience.

It's nice to see one of our male friends stopping by one of "the band" threads...you could learn a lot here, but most men are afraid...seriously afraid of this area of the forum. I think it may be a case of severe jealousy! You are a brave lad! ::)

I'm loving Kimono Adam!  I've just done some work for a multi-national Japanese firm and have had the real pleasure of sitting next to some Japanese people whilst I worked there.  I know Adam has been off to Japan earlier in the year having seen Instagram pics and he really got into the culture there.  I'm well impressed with him (and this is coming from a Bono woman!).
