    U2 Three 1979

    I was working evenings at the time and didn't finish work until 12.30. I asked the boss if I could finish early to go queue for tickets and he said no. I should have rang in sick!

    European leg starts this month

    Madrid up first for me, then Manchester and finally Dublin x 4. With a bit of look might squeeze in another.
  4. As its now August 1st in Berlin we can say that the European leg starts this month. Yippeeee!!!
  5. Another (real) Late Late Show performance! The Ballad of Ronnie Drew by Irish supergroup
  6. I should have put this up during the world cup but better late than never. The greatest world cup song ever. Great times. Great memories OOH AHH, OOH AAH
  7. Just as you maintain that your rant was not specifically directed at me, my comment certainly wasn't an attack on you or your point and I apologise if I gave that impression. The problem with these forums is sometimes comments can be interpreted differently than intended and cause offence on all sides, so to engage now in a back and forth of I said you said would be futile.
  8. Excuse me and 'some people' for being so stupid. Actually no don't excuse me because it's not being stupid. This is a forum in which we interact about a band that I don't think it's too far fetched to say we all like. A big part of that interaction often involves speculation. I would class this topic as speculative and I expressed my opinion on it but I won't be losing sleep over it tonight because I have much more important things in my life to lose sleep over if I want to. You too of course are entitled to express your opinion, but I feel its was unnecessary for you to turn it into a 'rant'. Rant over !
  9. I must say having originally been in favour of the idea trilogy of albums I am now leaning towards preferring something new. Take a year or so off when the current tour ends, come back with some new fresh ideas if possible and put on a stripped back show.
  10. By elite clique I mean a closed group of select people. As I said hopefully any fan forum that may develop as a result of the contact with Mr Oseary will not become such an elite group. I acknowledge that it would not be practical for all fans to be directly involved but I am sure many members of the wider fanbase would like to know that they to can be involved in some way and get updates now and again, even if that is to say nothing is happening! As regards examples of elite groups some would consider the fan run GA 'queues' at shows to be such. Another example would be those that were brought on stage during the I+E tour and the contest to do so in Paris. Maybe it's often more a case of perception. Because it is a perception does not mean that it is invalid I acknowledged that it was a rumour but even if there is no new Live Nation contract the essence of my point remains the same and I am still be interested to know if there has been any follow up to Mr Osearys initial response to the fan letter. Thanks to both of you for your responses. I didn't write this post to be argumentative or negative towards the band, Zootopia, the mods or other fans. I did so out of a love for the band whose every move I have followed for many years and will continue to do so regardless of whether I am listened to. I'll borrow a phrase from RIngo Starr to finish off. Peace and Love
  11. hmmm! In light of the strong rumours that the band have signed a new contract with Live Nation I think this suggested fans forum could have even greater significance and it would be unfortunate if it developed into a forum for an 'elite clique' to the exclusion of others Can Bigwave or any of the other mods shed any further light on it.
  12. I would be interested to know if there has been any follow up to Guy Osearys response to the fan letter last year? In his response he said would like to 'set up a mechanism so that every so often we can convene around a band-related subject'.

    The World Cup Thread

    As an Irish man who has supported an English team for more than 40 years all I can say is COME ON BELGIUM 😉

    Will they come back to USA after Europe?

    I agree doctornickriviera. What I would like to see is U2 ditching Live Nation/Ticketmaster/Seatwave/Guy O Seary at the end of the current contract and bring it all back home. To me it often feels like they have sold out us fans to some extent with this contract. Having said that I still can't tun my back on them.
  15. Yes I have to agree with you the Live Nation deal has not been good for fans.
