Tuesday 12th May I arrive in Vancouver. After checking in to my hotel I immediatly go to the Rogers Arena. I meet some people who I met at previous gigs. Cool! We are waiting at the arena hoping to attend the dress rehearsal for the U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015. Or to catch a glimpse of the band members. Unfortunately, this does not happen. At about 10.45 pm I return to my hotel exhausted. The next day I find out that Adam appeared at 1.20 am. I was sound asleep by then. The next morning I decide to explore Vancouver a bit. In the afternoon I am going to the arena again. Meanwhile Jean-Paul - with whom I will attend the concerts - has arrived. We get our number for the GA line: 141 and 142. We have to be there that night between 10 pm and 11 pm and 6 am on concert day to prevent getting our names taken of the list. After this we decide to wait for the possible arrival of band members. Suddenly - by then it is about 8.15 pm I think - Brian (Bono's bodyguard) appears. He asks us to remain calm and line up on both sides of the entrance. After some more waiting the Irish frontman appears. We are first in line, but unfortunately he starts signing stuff at the other side of the line. Finally he gets to us and signs two of my cd booklets. Jean-Paul has him sign his new tourbook and Bono is quit impressed by the book. "What is this? It's brilliant!" Apparantly he had not seen the book yet, allthough he signed Lia's copy about a minute before. We cannot pose for photos, but we are very happy with the signatures of and a little chitchat with Bono. This trip to Vancouver is already memorable.
