      flossie:Way cool on ya!

      When you take your film to be developed, get it put on a CD - should only be a few extra $$ or pounds. Then upload them and you can send them as attachments or imbed them in e-mails.

      As I said, I can't put photos on my computer. There is no way I can put photos online.

        Somehow I knew you'd be there, and close, Lauren. I am sooo jealous! It was totally awesome just to watch such an event on TV. BTW, I wouldn't have peed or let them remove me either! Who would? ops: What were you wearing? I will look for you in my tape.

          Pink rose print shirt with a pink best underneath, gold bag, Make Poverty History wristband and pink bracelet on one hand........

            An aerial view; there were less people than I thought in the golden circle!!

              Congratulations! I was wondering if any of the Boardie Buddies made it to the show.

                glass - this is too cool! thank you for sharing all this. tho it might not have been fun, it now makes a funny story - no peeing, passing out...what one does to be in paul's space... hope you can get your photos posted. way to be there!

                    Did our Paulie see you?

                      What was the story with the VIP "golden circle" tickets? Were they just available to selected VIPs, or could you pay for them, or what? I was just wondering if it was a situation of having to "know someone" or if people got them through radio contests, or exactly what the deal was. From the aerial photo it LOOKS like there were not that many people in the golden circle, but I can see that the crowd was huge, so I am sure looks are deceiving.

                      Anyway, congratulations. Some of the concert(s) reminded me of the Concert for NYC, which I was lucky enough to attend. The Who, Bon Jovi, Paul...

                      I didn't get to see all of Paul's songs, so I hope there is a link somewhere where you can replay just certain performers. I know AOL has the whole concert on replay, but I just want to see the Paul parts. Anyone know how to do that?

                        glass_0ni0n:I passed out (but refused to let them remove me).

                        You are a definitly a true fan, glass onion!!

                        I'm so happy for you, congrats on being in the VIP section, you lucky girl!

                          VIP tickets were given to selected people, I saw a few journalists I knew there, some competition winners, and ClearChannel were selling them as part of hospitality packages for aorund £800, which included 2 nights in a posh hotel over the road from the park, which would explain some of the Europeans near me. I had a purple wristband, but there were people with baby blue bands on and they looked like competition winners.

                            Congrats Lauren!
                            since you only entered at 4 pm then it was not you whom Paul addressed "I saw you here in the morning love"?

                            Paul/Bono's performance of Sgt Pepper was slightly disappointing for me. It needed the power that Paul's own band can normally provide.
                            And I think Ringo would have made it v e r y special had he sung With A liitle Help right after Sgt Pepper

                              That could well have been me because as I said before, I was there the whole time, before the show even began, but only able to watch from about 4. I was near the backstage area trying to sort out my pass, and I texted JeffLynnesBeard like 3 hours before the show began because I saw Paul in his army jacket. So it could have been me he was referring to.

                                That would have been something!
                                (but then when he said 'you love' he sort of waved his hand at a number of people so who knows you may have been waved at as well, love )

                                  aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Lauren, I wish I had been there!!!! You are so lucky!!

                                        I wasn't nervous at all as it wasn't a one on one experience, there were other people there....I got very close, even got pushed into him at one point.
