That does surprise me.

 

I've been able to go to every tour since Zooropa and twice on SOI.

 

It's really expensive now to go and so I don't get how folk can go 4/5/6 times each tour.

I'm 32 years old and only been to 3 U2 shows in AZ. I will be seeing the Joshua Tree tour at Rose Bowl on May 20th. That will be 4 shows total

1. Vertigo 

2. 360 Tour

3. Song of Innocence

45 years old........not sure how many shows.......maybe 35-40 or so?

My first show was the Unforgettable Fire Tour........April 1985 I think?  Capital Center in Largo, Md......amazing show.

This year will be extra special for me.......my wife,  who was my girlfriend in 1985, and our 3 children will be joining us at Fed Ex Field on June 20th.............hard to believe that I first saw them 32 years ago......

52 last month.

96 shows so far (1st was September 1980 ) 

If they had added a second at Croke Park I'd hit 100 this year - gutted!

I'm just shy of 50.

First saw them perform at Giants Stadium in 1986 on the Conspiracy of Hope tour.

Saw them again at the Meadowlands on the Joshua Tree tour in 1987.

Back at the Meadowlands in 1997 for PopMart.

At MSG for Elevation in 2001.

Twice on the iE tour, both at MSG, once with my husband, once with my daughter.

The three of us are going together to Giants Stadium next month!

I'm 44 and have been to about 25 shows, give or take.  Never sat down and actually counted (and I don't count Popmart ... blech).

Used to be a GA junkie, progressed to seats and as my income grew with my age, have been going to the RZ when available.  Seeing them in Houston next week but that may be my only concert this tour.  I am hoping they tour to support SoE and I will go all out then and try to pack in 6 shows at least.

Took my pilgrimage to Ireland in 2009 and saw the boys in Croke Park.  Magical trip and an amazing night.

I just turned 43 on Wednesday 17th, been a fan since I came across the  Joshua Tree cassette tape in high school back in Peru but due living in a 3 world country with lots of political en economical issues back in the day not many good bands (great bands in this case) will perform there. When I moved to the US 15 years ago I was able to make up for lost time and I began my U2 tour addiction. I've seen then 5 times already.

- 360 Tour- Rose Bowl

- 360 Tour- Anaheim 1

- 360 Tour- Anaheim 2

- I+E Tour- LA 1

- I+E Tour- LA 5

I will be seeing them tomorrow Saturday for a 6th time and I am taking my 9 year old daughter to her first show ever, so it's gonna be super special. I am hoping to see them again in my hometown of Peru if they decide to do a southamerican leg  of Joshua Tree Tour (crossing fingers).

I'm currently 34 and have been to 5 shows (the last 5 tours)

1) Elevation leg 1 in East Rutherford NJ, GA inside the heart

2) Vertigo leg 1 in San Diego, CA, GA sadly was not randomly selected to be inside the circle

3) 360 in East Rutgerford, NJ, GA

4) U2IE Tour in Vancouver, BC had seats behind the stage (misread the seat map)

5) The Joshua Tree 2017 in Seattle, WA, had seats opposite the stage behind a light pole 

Have switched over to seats the last 2 tours as the waiting around all day and hours of standing was getting old, but am not loving paying more money for seats with questionable views.

11 o'clock tick tock...

from 1987 til 2015 11 times altogether and probably wont see them anymore unless they come to our country. The most remarkable was ZooTV in Stockholm 1992 close to the acoustic stage but I have really enjoyed all of them for example Dublin 2009 was abs awesome.

I'm 23 going on 24 here soon I've only been to the 360 tour in Salt Lake City. I'm praying they announce a Salt Lake for the Joshua Tree tour. It's my dream to see them live in Dublin though.

At 49 (yikes!) I'm actually ashamed to admit I'd only seen them twice before this tour, both in Toronto, on the original Joshua Tree tour and the last 360 tour. I've doubled the number of times I've seen them, now, to four by catching the band in Chicago and at home in Toronto tomorrow.
