I got THIS CLOSE to Bono

A photo from one of the greatest nights of my life. U2 360° was simply mind-blowing.  I can’t find many other words to describe it.

Below is not the best picture I am aware, but on December 8th, about to leave for Suncorp Stadium, I decided I’d much rather enjoy the concert than be snapping away all night.But that’s how close I was to Bono. We even got a smile from Larry – I’ll never forget that!

The date was particularly poignant as it was the thirtieth anniversary of John Lennon’s death. We heard from Bono, “Goodnight Brisbane, Goodnight John Lennon” at closing.

Brisbane? It’s “amazing”, according to Bono, to which Edge responded, “It’s okay, if you like that tropical paradise thing”.

Yes, yes we do. And I think U2 does also.

Edge and Bono, just about 2 metres from where I was standing.

Until I can see them again, this will tide me over.
