Queen Elizabeth Theatre

This could have been the end of U2!
I'm surprised i'm the first one to mention this hear, but at this fantastic show (which I am proud to say "I was there!") Bono nearly could have seriously injured or even killed himself! During the middle of the show Bono, clearly bonding with the charged up Vancouver audience, proceeded to disappear during a song and then surprised a whole bunch of fans up in the balcony at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre! Rather than return the way he came, i guess Bono thought he could easily climb down from the ledge of the balcony and onto the main floor to go back the to stage! To the horror of everyone in the Theatre we all didn't want Bono to do this! From my vantage point 5th row on the floor it looked like fans swiftly pulled Bono back up from falling below. I do believe Bono has talked about this incident that thankfully had a happy ending but that sure was a foolish close call! Ahhhh, blame it on youth!
