    Wow, you're right, what a crowd! It helps having a stadium sized stage, enveloped by an arena, the seats so much closer. The noise from the crowd was so great! Unlike the gigantic cricket/ALF grounds used in Australia, where the crowd was so far away. But in general, the Japanese crowd were into the show so much more! Looking up towards the seats, & seeing everybody standing for the majority of the show! Love is Bigger got a much, much better reception from the Japanese than the Brisbane crowd, that's for sure. Singing the oh, oh, oh, oh's, in full voice. Of course your experience is influenced by those around you. My girlfriend & I were by the top-of-the-tree, with a young Japanese women directly behind us. She was so into the show! Jumping, crying, screaming! It was such a great experience to see how the show effected her. We had our own private party on many occasions. Turning away from that beautiful screen & the band on the main stage, to sing, dance, embrace & jump like lunatics together. Such a wonderful experience.

    I still can't believe how lucky we are to hear all these glorious performances of Red Hill Mining Town. Always been my favourite song on TJT and I never imagined I'd get to hear it live at all, let alone done so brilliantly!

    I felll asleep. I woke up bummed and a bit ornery. I read the news. Adam saying it definitely was not an opportunity for a bass solo made me laugh. It's all better now.

    I assume its the new Satellite Radio Station on XM! That is what I got from it. Space X is on the pad here to launch at noon--when I saw U2 X Radio--that is what we picked up here on the Space Coast LOL!!! I always related Elevation to surfing, perfect surf song for Aerial Surfing so our little tiny spot on this big world-that is sending it's 1st FEMALE SURFER into the OLYMPICS IN TOKYO, JAPAN 2020 is from my tiny town of Melbourne Beach in Florida-we await to see if Kelly Slater will take the 2nd coveted spot for the Mens USA Team this week-it would be great if Brevard County, Florida sends TWO of the best surfers in the world to the Olympics! It's been a long time dream of ours to get surfing in the Olympics. WE DID IT! I think it's GREAT that U2 will have their OWN Satellite Station! Those Boys from Dublin go hand in hand with surfing They just didn't know it til now LOL!!!

    Youโ€™re speaking my language too! ๐Ÿ‘ My hope is that we will get our wish in 2021 - a combination tour for a new album and 30th anniversary of AB. How they choose to commemorate AB/ZooTV on such a tour I would leave to them (i.e., they wouldnโ€™t have to necessarily play the whole album in order like they have done with the JT anniversary tours - if all the songs were mixed into the show, that would satisfy me). I wouldnโ€™t expect a full-blown ZooTV re-enactment either - Bono, The Edge, Adam, and Larry are 30 years older now (Bono in particular has had a whole bunch of health challenges in the meantime). However, it wouldnโ€™t have to be that for me to be happy with such a tour. I just hope we get some kind of commemoration in 2021 and beyond.

    Mine finally arrived a few days ago. Had been delivered to the wrong address (despite me asking twice for it to be changed) and thankfully was redirected to my current address by my ex-landlord, but at least it's here.

    Monday is such a fricken let down after watching U2 concerts this weekend. The fact I feel the same way about their music 35 years after my first U2 concert is testament to their amazing music. So good they have been on this tour โค๏ธ

    Looking for something else I found this on the Saitama Super Arena website, that may be useful for your interests (and perhaps to others in the community)... I'm aware that it's very likely you already have found this information, but just in case: : it's on: https://www.saitama-arena.co.jp/e/guide/ Scroll to the very bottom of the page... Also, click on Confirm specific areas under Floor Map . The maps will be of much help...

    Last Thursday I went to Philadelphia to see Bob Dylan for the first time. Well worth the trip. Philly is a great spot with or without Bob. On Black Friday I'm heading into NYC to see Bob again. This will be my first time at The Beacon so November is turning into a month of firsts.

I SADLY could not afford to go to the concerts but some LOVELY U2 FANS SENT in some BEAUTIFUL VIDEOS AND photos for me to see it. Thanks for that it meant a lot to me. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’“ I saw it on YouTube and it was very hard for Bono not to cry. He was trying not to show it. But I know he was. He was pacing around a lot looking down and his voice was different Bono and Michael had a very special friendship very close friends and I am sure that necklace was Michael's. I'm so proud of you Bono for standing up talking about Michael Hutchence when it was very hard for you to do. I for one could never do that. I was watching you talk about Michael before you sang the song and before you started the video of Michael Hutchence you were very upset. But you carried on no matter how much it hurt you inside. ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Larry, ๐Ÿฅ Adam,๐ŸŽธ The Edge ๐ŸŽธand Bono. ๐ŸŽค You ALL were brilliant Michael was close to all of you.

    Wow two amazing shows. Well worth the trip from Vancouver!!! Thanks again to the amazing Australian fans for their hospitality. Also, thanks to the SCG employees that helped us with relocating our seats for night 2 when ours were blocked off (due to visibility issues). The upgrade was great!!!

    My "Good thing" is I signed up for a local Jingle Bell Fun Run alternative called "Jingle in your Jammies" for those of us who cannot make the race. By the way, the charity event's proceeds go to the American Arthritis Society because we need a cure!!

    1058 EDUCATION How soccer is changing the lives of girls in Kenya February 23 2017 | By: MEGAN IACOBINI DE FAZIO GIRLS COUNT Every girl counts. 130 million girls donโ€™t have access to an education. So weโ€™re asking the world to count them, one by one. JOIN THE COUNT โ€œDiscovering football is the best thing that ever happened to me,โ€ says Claris Akinyi, sitting behind her tidy desk in the principalโ€™s office in Kibera Girls Soccer Academy (KGSA). When she was 11, Claris spent her days looking after her sick mother and helping run her familyโ€™s boiled maize stand. When she became a member of the Kibera Girls soccer team, her life changed overnight. โ€œI used to stay indoors all the time, but the soccer team gave me the opportunity to go out and meet people,โ€ she says. โ€œWe also got to watch videos about sex education, so I became very aware of issues like early pregnancies and gender-based violence, which are common here. Soccer helped me stay focused.โ€ Set up by Abdul Kassim in 2002, KGSA occupies a small plot of land in the heart of Kibera, one of the biggest slums in Kenya. It has since grown from a soccer academy into a successful tuition-free secondary school. Abdul, who was born in Kibera and brought up by a single mother, started the academy to address the gender disparities he had observed growing up. โ€œI noticed that the girls were finishing primary school and then doing nothing,โ€ he says. โ€œThey were being married off at very young ages and pregnancies were rampant. So I used soccer to engage them, and to send a message about gender equality to the Kibera community.โ€ But early on in the program, as the girls finished primary school, they began dropping out of the club. โ€œI wanted to know why, so I went to their houses to talk to them,โ€ says Abdul. โ€œMost could not afford high school, and many had left their homes because of family problems or were married off.โ€ Spurred on by what he saw โ€” and encouraged by many of the girls in the soccer club โ€” Abdul decided to turn the soccer program into a free high school for girls, so that they could finish their education and fulfill their potential. โ€œWhen the school started, some of the girls who were in the original football club decided to go back and finish their studies, even though they were already in their 20s,โ€ says Claris, who had already gone on to graduate high school. Claris also returned to KSGA, but as a teacher. Claris, sitting at her desk at KGSA. โ€œWhen I finished school, I knew I wanted to give back to the community, so I became a volunteer teacher,โ€ she says. โ€œIt was a great feeling to be teaching some of my old teammates.โ€ After three years of volunteering at the school, KGSA supported Claris through university, where she studied education and counselling. Now, as a fully-registered educator and KGSAโ€™s head teacher, she continues to support the girls in her community. Sheโ€™s also been able to buy land and build a house for her mother. โ€œI feel like giving back is very important,โ€ she says. โ€œThatโ€™s why I am still here.โ€ It is with the determination and goodwill of Claris, Abdul, and other dedicated staff members that the school continues to grow, and has earned international recognition for its creative approach to education. โ€œWe wanted to provide a mechanism for girls to explore their interests and develop skills for their adult life,โ€ says Abdul, talking about the various life-skills classes and extracurricular activities offered by the school, which include journalism, business, and computer classes. And, of course, soccer โ€“ and sports, generally โ€“ is still a main focus at KGSA. In addition to being a member of several of KGSAโ€™s after-school vcubs, 18-year-old Khadija Ishikara plays on the soccer team that won a league trophy last year. โ€œSoccer is my favorite hobby, because it keeps me active and fit,โ€ she says. Khadijaโ€™s mother still thinks itโ€™s strange for girls to play football, but she is growing increasingly supportive of her daughterโ€™s choice of sport. As for Khadija, itโ€™s hard to imagine her giving up soccer anytime soon: โ€œAnyway,โ€ she says with a wry smile, โ€œanything boys do, girls can do better.โ€ Via ONE
