    My buddy and I went to this concert.

    This was back when you were not allowed to bring cameras in the venue.
    My buddy was a master of the smuggled camera and clandestine photos.

    Anyway, He got several pictures of the girl pulled up onto the runway with Bono.
    At the time we couldn't do much about it but since then he's been wanting to make contact with her to provide the photos to her.

    I volunteered to post one photo of her and Bono on CF figuring there was probably a semi-decent chance someone on here knows her and can work to connect the photographer and the subject.

    Obviously it would have been a HUGE deal for her at the time and so her friends would have known about it. Hoping someone can make the connection.

    PM me if you (are her or) know how to contact her.

    Bono being your dad would explain a lot.

    And she got pulled from the audience. What a coincidence.

    I was there too. Loved it when Les Claypool pulled his wig off to reveal he'd shaved his head.

    You might think every woman looks like Paula Abdul. Because she doesn't.
