    Need any info on Amsterdam?

    Thank you for the information. Our last trip to Amsterdam was a bit hurried and we couldn't do many things. Would love to try cycling, Heineken Experience or maybe even Giethoorn day trip if it is worth the effort. Let us hope that we choose the right things.

    Need any info on Amsterdam?

    Hi Gogme United This will be my second time to Ziggo Dome with 1st visit during the 2015 concert. Could you advise where do the U2 fans generally go for Pre show and aftershow get together at a pub. Are there any particular pubs that are famous for U2 fans ? Also, is there any place in Amsterdam that sell U2 related souvenirs. Also, could you confirm that U2's hotel is Amstel in Amsterdam and usually what time and which place would be great for the possibility of catching them in person. I'm a die hard fan from India and would love to meet them in person if there is a possibility of meeting them in front of their hotel for probably even a few seconds.

    Will there be a Songs of Ascent?

    With Adam confirming in a recent interview that they will not be touring next year, and (rumor) unconfirmed news of them signing another 10 year contract with Live Nation. I also feel the same that they will do a Achtung Baby 30 Anniversary tour considering how successful the TJT tour was. Also, as AB was their Best album till date, the AB anniversary tour should be even more popular amongst the fans leading to more $$$. I think we are now in the Final Decade of their Career and the band will make sure to make it count until the end with such tours and i'm sure with at least 1-2 more albums down the line.

    Will there be a Songs of Ascent?

    3 Tours in 3 years and 2 albums... i consider myself lucky to have seen them live 1st time in 2015 and then again in Dublin last year and now looking forward to completing the circle of I&E in Amsterdam this year. Songs of Experience album completed the idea of I&E song albums beautifully with '13'. I really believe that there is another album in the back of their minds which in all likely hood should be titled Songs of Ascent. I remember reading their manager's interview recently where he even admitted to being open to the idea of a 30 Year Anniversary tour (their Best Album ever) celebrating 'Achtung baby' which i think will be possible in 2021. Another Album before 2020 year end seems unlikely to me at the moment considering how much they have been on the road lately & that they will have to be back on the Road again after the release of the next new album.
  5. Is it worth waiting for the 2nd/3rd shows declaration like they did during SOI. With 3 to 4 shows in major cities i think it is better to hold in case one is flexible in terms of the city they can go to.
  6. I've been to Paris & Rome so i'm looking forward to exploring a new city like maybe London, Brussels or even Vienna if they decide to tour there for SOE. But my mind keeps going back to Dublin & Amsterdam as well considering how good they were. More for Dublin because of the way the whole city was decked up in the days leading up to the concert day & the festive mood in the air in Pubs with fans from all over the world on the day of the Concert. But i have been dragging my wife along on this U2 concert adventure twice already even after she is not as big a fan as me so convincing her to go to Dublin again will not be easy. Let us see the Venues they decide for the next tour. Will check with you guys in this forum at that time.

    u2 song of the day

    When I look at the world from ATYCLB.
  8. Probably one of the very few die hard fans from India. Love for U2 is taking me around the world and already looking forward to my next concert in a new city.

  9. Having seen them live only twice, once in Amsterdam for SOI and in Dublin for TJT tour, I'm already thinking for the SOE tour and wondering which other city will be the best place to see them live. Can the other fans please advise which other city is a must visit for live U2 concert. I really liked the energy at The Temple Bar area in Dublin on the day of the concert with fans from all over the world enjoying together before heading to the Croke Park. Is there another place in Europe which has almost similar atmosphere as in Dublin on the day of the concert.
  10. Any idea what time one should leave and reach the for Hogan Stand seats. For the seats i hope there is not going to be much delay in getting inside. Also any idea which places are having live tribute bands playing right now.

    Broad daylight during Dublin Concert

    Thank you Heather & Carl... for sharing your experience. I'm looking forward to the Dublin experience and after seeing the recent pictures of the Coldplay concert at Croke Park i'm really excited. It looks amazing...

    Is anyone else dying to hear Stay?

    Faraway... so close. ? This song is my favorite as well but highly unlikely they will change the set list now.

    Broad daylight during Dublin Concert

    Oh c'mon... I was just a little disappointed with so much light taking away the nice effect of the 8K background screen and also the beautiful effect of people's phone light during the song 'Bad'. This will be only my 2nd U2 Concert and I was looking forward to it especially as it is my 1st concert In Dublin. I'm sure you've been to plenty of U2 concerts. Sorry if I didn't meet your standards of living an ideal U2 fan life.
