Bono & The Edge

U2 were in concert Sunday and Monday night here in Miami. Being that U2 is my favorite band and in my opinion the best rock and roll band of all time, I had to get myself some photos of them while they were in town. Sunday was a bust with no pre show or post show visit; Monday however was a different story. Sometime around 4 in the afternoon Bono and The Edge drove up to the arena hanging out their truck windows. Bono had a video camera in hand and said he was doing a documentary about The Edge and wanted to know what people thought about him. Most of the U2 fans there were a bit too blown away by all this to even formulate an opinion about The Edge. Unfortunately Larry and Adam were not there to meet fans but Bono and The Edge hung around and chatted for a good 20 minutes to a half hour. I snapped away as much as a could and made a small gallery of the photos I liked best. If you’d like to see this gallery just click on the photo below.

These photos are absolutely fantastic. I wish you had the opportunity to photograph my favourite men more often. (And I'm so very sad that Larry and Adam weren't out to be photographed.)

I took a look at some of your other photos as well and I'm just... blown away. I hope you don't mind that I've friended you. I look forward to seeing anything else you may wish to display here. Wow.

Which reminds me. Check out the Miami Newtimes article titled Bono Vs. Jesus. Too funny!

P.S. Bono wins.

Those are really, really cool.


*grin* I need to get my photos of them up. They are such awesome people.

WONDERFUL photos!

Question -- why did you go with colour for them instead of b/w? *curious*
