  1. For anyone EVERYONE going to be in NYC on 22 or 23 is there anything planned before or after shows on those nights?

     

    Arriving from Dublin and gonna venture out both nights but would be great to catch up with other fans. .

     

    Anyone know where is good to drop into or know of any fan events / meet up ?

     

    Cheers

    G


  2. I'll be in New York from the 23rd July and wondering if there is any planned meet up's before or after gigs ?

     

    if there's something happening where is it at, would be great to meet some fellow fans while in NYC

     

    See you there

     

    ;-)


  3. Any spares out there , my local store in Dublin got 2 copies , They thought they were getting more .....Ah well ...maybe next year

     

    That was freebird

     

    Tower (Easons) got 15 and Tower (Dawson St) got 25

    RAGE got 5 and Spindizzy got 10  - 

     

    They all went within seconds of opening, Tower was cheapest at E29.99 and Spindizzy the most eXpensive at E45

     

    Anyhow...... I got 1 so I'm happy enough


  4. I don't believe anything man. I just want confirmation. Can't you understand that?

     

    Here's what I know (whatever it's worth)

     

    Shooting a video called SUMMER NIGHTS,

    I have been at two days of shooting and so far NO sight of anyone from U2...BUT i'll tell you this... IT's NOT an ad

     

    Security is so tight for this it's actually laughable - IT's not an ad.. I've been on numerous sets over the years and never encountered security like this, some saying it's a GUINNESS ad some saying it's a CADBURY ad... ALL have signed a confidentiality agreement - they wear different coloured wrist-bands every day and the shoot has so far featured a single guy (actor) walking around Dublin (wet) streets carrying a guitar on his back, the bridge shoot was him looking towards city and tossing his guitar into river below....

    Filming has been at U2/HQ among other places and again it isn't just an advert or even movie I have ever been near

     

    Rumours U2 were shooting here this week... BUT no sign, I personally think it is U2 video... but band WON'T be at shoot...


  5. I've been at shoot last 2 days and it's insanely tight but NO sign of band only some guys dressed in black being filmed

    the shoot on the bridge is the same... NOTHING really happening only 1 guy being filmed carrying a guitar about - and security is mad

     

    I don't expect band to be about for this ... at least they haven't been the last 2 days ??

     

    I got pix... but nothing of interest :(


  6. We wait and we wonder   !!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    Im not pleased at this ''partnership'' either and as far as LN are concerned I fear it's a BAD thing - LN are only concerned about how much they can bleed from the average fan and taking a 100% stake in U2 will give them complete control over every future U2 event and they will do their utmost to make us pay heavily when a tour comes around - I think this association will have a negative affect on U2 with fan's not going to as many shows as they have in the past and many could even avoid show's completely ... I wait and hope we are wrong BUT the corporate heads behind LN won't be worried about us (Im sure) but again - We will wait and wonder


  7.  

    Not one to be moved by (or start rumors) BUT I had heard this (or more something close to this) in Dec from a very good source but like most things I hear I never really gave it a second thought (well not all of it)

     

    During a conversation I was told an idea had come up about them doing something like ''3'' shows in Dublin & wherever other cities BUT doing them as ''3'' different shows as in the first being in a small venue then a medium sized place then a stadium show - I was told they got the idea from the Rolling Stones who done something like this previously (I Did not know that) It was only when I seen this new ''Rumor'' that I thought it sounded (kind of) the same...

    It's a great idea (IF TRUE) and would certainly be amaZing to catch them in a smaller capacity ie Vicar St OR The Olympia in Dublin..

     

    Anyhow - As I said Im not one for rumors but thought I'd add my bit of information...

     

    So, Let the rumors begin / eXpand  

     

    Years ago I saw Mary Black in The Olympia, but that venue is far too small for a U2 concert.

     

    During the Joshua Tree tour U2 played in Foret National (Brussels), with a capacity of only 8.000 to 9.000 people. The hunt for tickets was horrible. Not to be repeated if you ask me.

     

    Something I wouldn't be looking forward to (if it were to happen) is the madness getting tickets but on the other hand I would love to see them in an intimate venue like Vicar St / Olympia


  8. Here we go!! :lol: I think rumours are way of entertaining ourselves in the silent world of U2.com news! If they're only gonna report 'official' news here then we're gonna be waiting a while so what the hell, let's get rumourtastic and maybe start making up some of our own for sheer amusement value!

     

    I agree  :ph34r:

     

    For the record - when I was told of the ''3'' gigs I asked for tix for the 'small' venue............ We'll see when it happens / IF it happens
