    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Ye know what - whilst it's not umph U2 - Love is bigger remains a fabulous track for me on the last album - reflective, uplifting - everything you want from the band if you've followed them for 'a while' In the vein of 'All I want is You' 20 years ago. If the confirmations come through for this tour, I might even attempt travel.

    u2 song of the day

    Been away a while. Lost my dad a few weeks back. Back in the saddle!❤️ Love this.
  3. lol - that's great - though let's remember Bono was far from happy walking off that stage - he thought they'd blown it. Edge thought Bono had blown it as they didn't get to play the hit track 'Pride' etc etc etc - all history! It was a feckin awesome performance though. U2 played around 5 / 5.30 pm. Queen didn't hit the stage until a couple of hours later. At least U2 came back two years later with Joshua Tree - Queen had kinda peaked just then and milked (rightly so) the 'Kind of Magic' tour. I saw Queen at Slane, Ireland on that tour in summer of 1986 as a seventeen yr old. Consider myself lucky. Joshua Tree at olde Croker was to follow in June of the following year.

    u2 song of the day

    I just love this clip. So many memories of this venue - started in 86, when, as a teen, I saw QUEEN in 1986. So buoyed, I returned the following year to see - no, NOT David Bowie, but the support act - Scottish band called 'Big Country'. Didn't return until many years later - my wife was / is a 'Madonna ' fan, so down I went to re-capture some youth, m'eh, just to re-visit the venue. Last time was 2015, when I saw the Foo Fighters. Anyhow - biggest regret, whether it was chasing a career, or not savvy enough on fastest finger on the internet trigger wins the tickets at that time - I missed out on U2 at one of the most (arguably) stunning natural outdoor concert venues in the world. I do love this footage. Special performance in a special place - that is very much more controlled and organised from when I was first there back in the day. ❤️

    Well done. Look forward to this one. I just pay my subscription - then this something arrives in the post some time later long after I've forgotten about it - it's always a surprise! This sounds great.
  10. That is so very true. I recall the gaps in seeing U2 live, the scramble or missing out on tickets - the last four years however - forever etched in my spoilt fandom of the greatest band of brothers on the rock n roll planet. Here's to U2, a very unique band who lit up my 13yr old bedroom, when I stuck my elder brothers Boy album onto a turntable in 1982. I wish them (and all of us) all the best. So many songs, so many tracks - that transcend many of the growing pains and triumphs of the life we all work through. Amen.

    Keep in touch guys. Good luck for the last night in Dubs, and will tune in for Berlin. We can take pride in following the greatest band in the world - in my opinion. - and yours.

    Love you Bono - No hard border - ever- no them, only us.....we've worked too hard to create peace here. The people , north n south, won't accept the past. Thanks for a fantastic tour.
