BONO AT THE BEACON

Bono at the Beacon in New York City. What a night!
U2 is my favorite band and I absolutely love Bono. But after tonight, I love him a million times more, if that’s possible!
Tonight was the last night of Bono’s nearly two weeks of Stories of Surrender: An evening of words, music and some mischief at the Beacon Theatre.
This is one of the coolest, most intimate performances I’ve ever seen – and I saw it from the 10th row!!
Bono sang, he told deeply personal stories. I knew many of them from reading his newly released memoir Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story. But to hear him tell them, in person, in such an intimate setting –  and then to watch him actually act out some of his life events and then break into songs for 2 1/2 hours in the beautiful Beacon in one of my favorite cities – was MAGICAL, MESMERIZING AND UNFORGETTABLE!
No cell phones were allowed inside the theatre so I could only take this one photo before going in. I’m wearing a vintage U2 The Joshua Tree World Tour 1987 t-shirt – an early Mother’s Day gift from my girl. She knows me so well.
Thanks for the date tonight Bono – I love you so much!!
