Happy Birthday Larry Mullen Jr! #TheLarryMullenBand 17 years ago today we celebrated your 40th birthday at my 40th #U2 show, my favorite concert 10.31.01 Elevation Providence2 Immediately following the first concert in Providence on October 30th, we got in the GA line for Larry’s 40th Birthday concert the next day. I was number seven in line. I made a huge orange Birthday Card for Larry and had everyone in the GA line sign it. I had also brought an Elvis motorcycle shirt to give to Larry as a birthday present. We wore our “Larry Mullen Band” shirts standing up front at the rail between Bono and Adam. Larry’s 40th birthday celebration began. Bono led the audience in a chorus of “Happy Birthday” to Larry. Then a birthday cake was brought out. Larry took the microphone and came to the front of the stage to talk, “It took me 40 years to get up front. I’m glad I’m spending my birthday with 18,000 of my closest friends. I feel like I could borrow money from you.” Bono asked for a bottle of champagne, which he shook up a la ZooTV and sprayed the audience. Edge took a swig, then Larry drank and continued to drink for the next few songs. After “Kite,” Larry got off the drums and made a B line for me. Larry gave me his champagne bottle, with champagne still in it! I drank some and shared it with Paola, Tasha and Michelle, then just hugged the bottle until the security guard offered to put it down behind the barricade until the show ended. I didn’t want to let it out of my hands, but sensible thoughts prevailed. I couldn’t believe it! Larry wanted to share his birthday with ME! He wanted ME to have a drink on his birthday! I was SO excited I didn’t even know U2 changed the set list and played “Wild Honey.” I thought it was “Staring at the Sun” as in the past shows. I didn’t really come around until “Please.” After “Pride,” Larry came back over to me so I could give him the birthday card and Elvis shirt. I said, “Thank you. Happy Birthday.” He smiled and said, “Thank You.” It wasn’t much of a conversation, but it was very meaningful as Larry looked into my eyes just as he had in Jersey when he gave me his drum stick a few months prior.

When you quote people you should quote them correctly, esp on a shirt IT’S ALL ABOUT DRUMS (not it’s all about THE drums) #myU2petpeeve #TheLarryMullenBand
