  2. A photo taken on a crappy old no zoom phone camera, photo of Edge taken from the special needs platform behind the Red Zone. We were sat on the same platform on Friday too, Edge gave us a smile and a nod that day - probably thought theres those two flippin' stalkers again (weird really cause Bono must have seen us raving to 'I'll Go Crazy, If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight' on Friday night - cause he looked at us and smiled) Tour ramblings: Missed the ferry, as we got delayed in the Elvis Cafe...met Mailman1 (Phil/Jo) in the ferry bar.....mmmm 'John Lynch The Swans Bar' probably the best pint of Guiness on the planet. We passed the locals' U2 superfan quiz quote "if you're big U2 fans answer me these questions" "you passed the test - but i wouldn't go to see U2 when they played the Dandylion Market!" Probably the best/maddest U2 concert experience in my life, met some bloke outta Boyzone, Gay Byrne, the Kaiser Chiefs and took a wrong turn in my whelchair almost into the bands dressing room area (ring of steel haha). It was terrific seeing the band going on stage and leaving the venue. After show Guinesses in the Jurys Inn hotel until the next morning.... They say every cloud has a silver lining....i think it's true
  3. counting isn't fun and it sucks but 630 never the less;)
  4. ..."When we took the photographs, we thought it was a very powerful visual graphic image. We then drove off, and I don't know if we'll ever find that Joshua tree again. I don't know if anyone will ever find that Joshua tree again -- I hope that if people do find the Joshua tree they won't cut it down and take it home and stick it to the wall --- or bring it to a gig!! ('Hey Baaano! I got yer tree!')" Bono 01/01/87 U2 World Service Propaganda magazine. In 1987 when I first opened up the Joshua Tree album, I was spell bound by Anton Corbijn's photos of the desert and particularly the tree and decided to visit there. Twelve years later I made it..... To see in the 21st Century we went on a musical journey of some of america's heartland visiting some vintage U2 destinations immortalised during the eighties classic album the Joshua Tree. The Joshua Tree was released in March 1987 and the LP had two working titles: 'Desert Songs' and 'The Two Americas', however, U2 decided on the title joshua tree on introduction to the gnarled cactus by dutch photographer Anton Corbijn. This funky cactus got it's name from the early setlers thinking it looked like the prophet Joshua pointing to the promised land. We passed through Death Valley junction where the import singles 'In Gods Country' 'One Tree Hill' single covers photograph of a crouching Bono was taken. The band picture on the rear sleeve of 'With or Without You' was also taken here, I believe the cover shot from 'With or Without You' , judging by the brush, was taken near the famous tree. From there we visited Zabriskie Point, Death Valley, where the U2 album cover was shot in 1986. You can reach the exact spot of the album cover, just over the wall of the viewing site. Take plenty of water though or you'll end up seeing Jim Morrison and Bono walking over the dunes and end up as vulture snacks. The Joshua Tree National Park (where U2's joshua tree isn't) was well worth a visit , nice friendly coyotes there. Also the park stocks some nice souvenirs including patches, posters, postcards and the BBC television documentary 'Desert Song' which features U2's album music as it's soundtrack . I opted for a packet of seeds which grew okay, I have a small joshua tree growing in my UK garden! 'The Harmony Motel' from Anton Corbijn's U2 silent movie, tour programme and other publicity photos is at 29 Palms, U2 stayed here during 1986 whilst on the album shoot (thought we found THE tree in 29 Palms Marine Corps Training Ground -- wrong!). Bodie Ghost town was something else here the covers to singles 'Where the Streets have no Name' featuring Adam Clayton and 'I still haven't found what I'm looking for' featuring Larry Mullen Jnr were photographed by Anton Corbijn, don't remove anything though otherwise you'll face the dreaded curse of Bodie! 7th and Main Street in downtown LA is worth a visit (though use caution) to see the site of the video shoot to 'Where the Streets have no Name', also around the block is the Hotel Rosslyn or The Million Dollar Hotel from the book by Bono and Wim Wenders movie of the same name - this hotel particularly the signage also featured in more photos from the same period (inc. rear sleeve of 'Streets') and later on in the 1988 The Rattle and Hum period 'Desire' promo video. The documentary 'Outside it's America' from the Joshua Tree Remastered 20th Anniversary edition features a clip of the band on the roof of the hotel. We found U2's Joshua Tree on the big road from Lone Pine to Death Valley -- I190 I think it was called. It was quite easy to find once we knew what the mountain range is, also the fact that it wasn't a lone tree (Larry was obscuring a smaller tree with his head), the album cover looked like it was shot early morning and the inner sleeve probably mid day so these locations were within driving distance of each other, joshua trees are indigenous to Southern California, etc). The Anton Corbijn's photos around U2's joshua tree were taken during a brief visit there during December 1986. When we visited the tree it was in pretty good shape, but today the tree is dead and gone... oh well at least it didn't spend the rest of it's days in the parking lot of the Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas (Check out Freemont Street in Vegas site of the 'I still haven't found what I'm looking for' video though covered cover today with a canopy). Anton Corbijn wouldn't tell us where the tree was as he said U2 didn't want the tree becoming a shrine, now the place is strewn with trash including a tacky bronze/concrete plaque. A few parts of the tree remain on the desert floor the rest has been removed by souvenir hunters and will no doubt end up on eBay in due course. U2 always said 'Achtung Baby' was the sound of the band chopping down the Joshua Tree - they got their wish - through mother nature it would appear. When we visited this and other places of natural beauty all we took away with us were photos and all we left behind were footprints, it's a pity that others didn't... essay and photo ©copyright joshthetree 1999
  5. photo: copyright joshthetree 2001 I loved the Elevation tour during 2001 we were very, very lucky and managed to get tickets to Madison Square Garden in New York City in June* and then most of the UK shows including both nights in the MEN Arena, Manchester, both shows at the NEC Birmingham and all four nights at Earls Court, London. The UK shows were very special as we managed to get GA tickets to most of them, through the venue box offices via the Internet, it was amazing that we had no trouble at all in getting internet tickets (how times have changed). For the first time since 'The Love Town Tour' of 1989 I took my pocket 'point and shoot' 35 mm film camera along to all these shows and got some great pictures. This is one of my favourite photos from the shows, I just happened to get my camera on Bono at the right moment. During the 'Elevation Tour' shows we managed to get to see the band leaving the NEC in their motor cavalcade, at other shows I shook hands with Bono a few times and held him up whilst he stood on a crush barrier, also on the last night at Earl's Court I held his hand and microphone for the duration of 'All I Want is You'. That was weird seeing my arm in slow motion with all the other arms around it. Highlights of these shows for me were 'The Fly', 'Gone', 'Bullet the Blue Sky', 'New York', 'Beautiful Day', 'Kite' and 'Until the End of the World'. One night in London we sat on the tube next to Steve Lillywhite. It was great to see U2 again in relatively small arena type venues it really was U2001 :0) This tour reaffirmed where I always felt was the best place to stand at any U2 show (well post 80's anyway) - don't queue for the mosh pit - get yourself on the front of the satellite stage or along the catwalk there's more interaction with the band here and a far better close up view. *we had originally planned on NYC during September for my birthday the 10th and brought the trip forward to June to take in the U2 show. During June we followed our intended itinerary which included the world trade centre on the day after my birthday, thankfully bringing the trip forward prevented us from being in NYC on a very bad day.
