    R.I.P. Thread

    I've been thinking of him today, after I read about his passing. Nice to see this thread, thank you dmWay. Wings of Desire is my absolute favorite film of all time. I can't count how many times I have watched it and I am moved every time. And it's thanks to U2 that I discovered the beautiful films of Wim Wenders.
  2. One year in and I, too, have not retired SOE. It's still one of my favorite albums to listen to, and often. It still feels like a shimmering, beautiful gift.
  3. I saw 2U (Notu2.com) a few times when they used to come up to New England, but they haven't come up my way in years, which is too bad b/c they were great. Around the Boston/NH area in the US, we have Joshua Tree. They don't dress as the band, they just play the music. They do a nice job. However, they don't play nothing from NLOH, SOI or SOE, and they play nothing from Zooropa either. Just the big hits. I would love them to play more recent stuff, or more deep tracks. http://joshuatreeband.com An old friend of mine is in Zoo Station from the Bay Area, CA, and I got to see them once on a visit out there, and they were fantastic!!

    U2 dreams

    I had a long U2 dream last night. I was talking to their manager, who in my dream appeared as my campaign manager from a political campaign i worked on 20 years ago, pitching a few ideas to him. One was that I had a great publicity campaign for Bono to promote Pepfar (President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief). Why I was throwing around the term Pepfar in my dream, I have no idea. The other was that I had found a great bass guitar teacher in my small New England town for Adam to come get lessons from, every Thursday afternoon. The manager was writing it all down, and was interested, so at one point I slipped in, "Why don't you just give me Bono's cell phone, it will be easier for me to explain to him," and the manager responded with "Nice try. No chance." Eventually, though, Adam agreed to the plan and there was a lot of decision making as to how he would get to my town. He eventually helicoptered in. He started with playing with some local folk musicians in a living room, where I had been smart enough to arrive early to get a good spot. Then I invited him for dinner before his lesson and he accepted. I paused, and then asked if his wife and daughter would be joining, hoping he would say no! But he said of course, plus 12 others of his traveling entourage. I woke up trying to figure out what I could possibly pull together for dinner for all of them, with such short notice. At some point in the dream, I tousled Adam's hair. Funny dream. But it goes along with most of my dreams that include Bono - they are always about my trying to connect with him over our backgrounds in campaigning and political work.
  5. Thanks for sharing! This was a really good read. Made me a little too nervous about the end of touring as an actual possibility but I will brush that worry aside and assume that they couldn't possibly actually stop. Not anytime soon, at least.
  6. Got my vinyl, too! My husband's is on the way. Now to just find a friend with a record player....I agree it's a bit of a bummer for them to be producing records and shipping them to so many people who will not play them. Whatever. I was one of the lucky few whose fan club membership worked out and got me pre-sale tickets. Worth it!!

    U2 dreams

    I dreamt the other night that Edge had some document he needed me to edit. And I kept saying loudly to anyone who would listen, because I knew how ridiculous it sounded and I couldn't quite believe it was true: "Oh, I have to go, Edge from U2 needs me to edit some documents for him!!" I got the job done and sent the flash drive off to him via mail or courier or something. That was it! So random.
  8. Wow, that was hard to watch. Bono looked scared during Red Flag Day. I hope this is minor and temporary. My heart goes out to Bono, the band, and the entire arena full of fans.

    U2 dreams

    I find it crazy that you only just started dreaming about U2! U2 dreams have been a mainstay of my sleep life for about, oh, 30 years!! LOL.

    U2 dreams

    I have had dozens of dreams over the years about U2. Usually around tour time, or after watching videos of them before bed. The best are when I get a tiny show, like in a school auditorium, or when I just hang out with the band and become one of their friends - though they always slip away and disappear without ever saying goodbye! Once I even got Adam's cell phone number in a dream! One of my favorites was sitting and having a long talk with Bono about politics and organizing, and all the work he's done, and my telling him what a gift he is to the world and, he perked up and said "Really? You really think I'm that good? That means so much to me."
  11. I am sorry you and your wife had that experience. I had almost the same exact experience at a Boston show in 2015. It was so upsetting and rattling. I tried not to let it ruin my show but it was really hard.
  12. Yes, of the four I saw - both Bostons, Newark, and MSG3, which were all phenomenal - this was hands-down the best.
  13. The first night I saw 13, right from the E stage, I had the same waterworks. So beautifully and tenderly staged.
