    Oh! I’ve never gotten to see them. And they are hitting two places close to me.

    U2 🙂 just them.
  3. I know we are in the Zoo and all, but I’ll leave the elephants to everyone else. 🐘😉

      I've had the same phenomenon with many of the lyrics on this album (including the one you just quoted) :


      "Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way" (I think you had that one as well)

      "Love Is All We Have Left"

      "And There Is A Light, Don't Let It Go Out"


      SOE's lyrics stick in the brain...

      @dmway, yes! Love is Bigger gets stuck quite often too. Like you said, many of the SOE songs do. 

  5. When people ask “why would you see them multiple times/2 nights in a row”, I always respond with “why wouldn’t I?” I get a lot of comments from college football fans where I am and I always respond to them with “you go see your favorite football team over and over. U2 is my team.” As for your GA question, yes, make friends with the people around you and they will be more than happy to give you bathroom breaks and whatnot.

    She still pops in every once in a while. She just has other things going on now.

    You should receive it.
  10. Meet and Greet

    If I remember correctly, she wasn’t allowed to even talk to them. I’ll have to see if I can find her post about it.
  11. Meet and Greet

    I agree. I have a friend who has loved Heart since the very early 80s. She paid for a meet and greet with them a few years ago and it was heartbreaking for her. As you said, ushered her in one door, 5 seconds with Ann and Nancy Wilson, picture taken, but with their camera (she couldn’t even get them to take a picture with her camera or phone) and picture mailed to her, and out another door. It definitely changed her opinion of them and their music.

    Welcome to the Zoo!
  13. Absolutely agree with you. My comment probably came across a bit pointed because I’ve seen a bit too much with that particular teaching first hand. As for your post, as long as it is within the Terms of Service, you have the freedom to post what you like.
  14. He did say that the kid had gone viral on YouTube, which is where he probably found it or it was pointed out to him. I’ve seen a couple people share a post of the little boy on FB, thinking it’s Prince George. I have no idea where they are from but there is a church and homeschooling movement in the South that is Classical training, in which things are learned with bible verses or songs. And yes, unfortunately a lot of children that are trained that way do think they are better than others as they get older. Rather than thinking there is an agenda, I’m actually surprised that they had that on National TV.
