Dublin meetup on 20/21 July at Irish Pubs

Recommended Posts

I have been a die hard U2 fan since year 2000 when i heard their album ATYCLB which was my 1st U2 album. It was when i saw their Live in Boston Elevation tour on DVD i realized how much i want to see their concert live. The raw passion and energy in the stadium was something i wanted to experience myself so badly. Living in India i hoped that they will one day perform in my country but i saw Elevation, Vertigo and U2360 tour come and go and slowly it dawned on me that that they might never come to India. With age catching up on the band i knew i better make it to one of the cities in the next tour.

 

That led me to my 1st concert during the I&E concert in Amsterdam and it was an out of this world experience for me.

 

As any U2 fan i also wished to see them live at Croke Park in Dublin and what better way than watch them perform the best Album of their career, The Joshua Tree.

 

I have booked my tickets, Air and concert. Done my booking on AirBnb for my stay from 19 to 24 July for the complete Dublin experience. So now i along with my wife look forward to meeting other U2 fans on the nights leading up to the concert. From around the world like me and of course the locals, to make this experience even more memorable.

 

Let us please meet some place on the 20/21 July evening at one of the Irish Pubs in Dublin and make it one big gathering of U2 fans.

 

So is anyone interested ?

Im flying out of Dubs the next day on hols  - so really have to curtail my behaviour on the Saturday - though guaranteed to be in Murrays bar between about 4pm - 6/7pm. Its a great pre concert spot. Many fans will have done a bit of Temple Bar area in the mid afternoon, and head up Oconnell St, call in maybe here on way past to Croker.

Enjoy your experience.

There's nothing quite like a Croke Park U2 gig.

There's just too many spots. Don't worry, you'll meet like minded people. ;)

What time do you start? If I recall the last U2 show I went to at Croke everything shut down early. And I was regretting that we didn't make a long day of it before the show...
