I got to meet Ed when he performed in the Bing Lounge in Portland, Oregon. As soon as I found out he was performing I started listening to Live 95.5 religiously to try to be caller number 9, and well I was after calling in on 9 different occasions. I decided to make him a bracelet and also gave him an Oregon pin.
On Friday I went to wait in line for the Bing Lounge. I gave the lady my name and she went to give me two passes and I told her it was just me and I ended up getting a front row seat!! Everyone got sat down and Ed came out. He played Lego house, You need em I don’t need you and A Team. Finally it was time to meet him.
I told him “I know you like Pingu so I made you this bracelet.” He took the bracelet, smiled at me and said “This is really sick actually.” We took our picture and I left to go get a spot in line at the venue.
The concert was absolutely amazing, I was only about 10 feet from the stage. I stayed after to try to meet Ed again but it started to get late and I had to drive alone for an hour and a half.
