      I collected mine in this fashion in Roma on the Vertigo tour. Worked ok , but missed the guest band...

  2. Last night at the O2 was brilliant! Apart from my nearly collapsing, but thanks to the medical for taking care of me. I was let back in nicely in time for Beautiful Day.

      I'm fine now, it was just dehydration. I did lots of jumping about but little access to water. They started at about 7.45-8pm.

      Has the wizard of Oz been distributing books again?

      I have a wonderful friend in New South Wales who had some U2 books she no longer wanted and sent them to me on the other side of the world - completely free of charge! I'm so utterly grateful to have such amazing friends.

      It's just terrible.....I hope 2017 is more gentle on us than 2016 has been.

      Yep! Just waiting for my confirmation email now so I can print it and keep it safe.

    3. Rhi_K

      Rhi_K

      Me too, I will be printing several and hiding them away in a couple of secret locations just in case lol. So I best get and look for some accommodation really. I'm feeling some pre/post show drinks coming on, what do you think?

  11. My thoughts are with the people of Paris. I hope U2, their crew and all of the fans there stay safe. Concerts can be rescheduled but people are irreplaceable.

      We'll get our results in mid-July. It was also fun meeting students of other subjects at the exam venue and chatting to them about what they are studying.

  13. At least this website is relatively free of politics... some of the stuff being spewed on my FB timeline is seriously making me consider disowning certain family members :(

      True. Hopefully it'll just be January that sucks.

  16. Feeling slightly sad that the dig is finished, now back to Ancient Greek and exam preparation.

      Will you get to do another one?

    2. padawanbeck84

      padawanbeck84

      Hopefully yes. I am signed up to hear from Nexus Heritage through the year to know if they are doing any more digs in Shropshire. I may also get to help with digs as part of my new role at Ironbridge.

      Luckily there's the football text commentary to keep me entertained while I'm waiting.

  18. My copy of "Sons + Fathers" arrived today. It is beautiful.

      Oh nice! I really want it but to get it the shipping cost as much as the book.

      Yup, it's pretty expensive !!! Enjoy, PadawanBeck !

  19. 5 sleeps and my local radio station are letting me bring one of their mascots along on the adventure!

    1. mich40

      Going to see it tomorrow morning. Will hopefully see no spoilers before then.

  22. Looks like no #U240 events near me, so I'll mostly spend the day rocking out to the concert DVDs.

  23. Rest in peace Jules Bianchi. Formula 1 has been cruelly robbed of a driver who had so much potential.

  25. America, what the hell were you thinking????

      America did not elect Trump. It's an illegitimate election because of all the illegal & immoral Voting Rights Violations by legislators (of a certain political stripe) designed to stop the poor, elderly, minorities, & college students from voting & to make some of their votes not count.
