Yep, I really did meet him, and the Edge in Belfast in '89*. I don't remember meeting the rest of the band, but apparently I did. I was in awe of Bono. Floored.
The Edge told me, "You're lovely." Bono said, "I think you embarrassed her... But, you are lovely, sweetheart." I coulda died!
We sat with them at breakfast and talked about the gifts of the Holy Spirit and what it means to be a Christian. He was extremely interested in what Jesus would think about our world today, what He would say to this generation. Very cool.
Later, I rode up the elevator with him and John Wimber and introduced them. He said, "Oh, John Wimber, Power Healing, Power Evangelism, I've heard of you." John, ever the dry humorist replied, "I've heard of U2." Haha.
We found out later that Bono had left us tickets for their concert in Dublin... The Joshua Tree tour. And, even gave us a shout out pointing to the huge American flag we were waving, "To my brothers and sisters from America!" Unbelievable.
*Correction: I meant 1987. We saw them at Croke Park, Dublin in June 1987. Dang, I'm old!
