Balcony jump
This was the 2nd night we were at & the only time I've seen the support act (The Alarm) having to do an encore. There were actually reports in the newspapers the next day saying that a seismic centre 3 miles away had registered tremors & it turns out that it was the noise & vibration from the U2 gig. Having been the night before, we knew that Gloria, my all time favourite track would be part of the encore so me being me, decided that a wee stage appearance would be the right thing to do lol. I climbed over the handrail & jumped about 15 ft down to the side of the stage (just missed Mike Peter's head oops) I could see the bouncers coming for me but managed to shout that I was Scottish to Bono, who then stopped them & did a wee jig with me. I was then "escorted" off stage but left in the arena so caught "40" as well. Needless to say, as the only fan onstage over the 2 nights, I was given a standing ovation on my return to the coach.
