  1. Croke Park Dublin

    From the album Joshua Tree Tour ~ Croke Park Dublin 22nd July 17

    These trees are absolutely stunning - I so wish the UK had the climate to grow them.
  2. What has been the most mind blowing song that you have been dying to hear live, then it finally comes true? Well for me on the JT30 tour it has got to be EXIT. Since the start of the tour I had only listened to 8 live feeds but stayed away from video clips as I wanted it to be as fresh to me as it did to those folk I heard gasp in awe or scream in amazement at some of the graphics & audio visuals. That is apart from EXIT, I had to see it after all these years, I had to see Bono, The Edge, Adam & Larry play this track that I had waited almost 30yrs to hear & see. Yep I played it over and over again, to the point I have the Eenie meenie minnie mo snippet as my ring tone. So when I flew over to Croke to see it I was not disappointed at all. It totally blew me away. It still flashes in my head when I close my eyes, I can still remember going nuts and having to say sorry to the girl behind me as I stood on her glasses and broke them (my bad). Anyway here is my video of this magic moment but I would like to hear what other U2 fans have that one special moment or song that will live with them forever.
  3. Have two excellent seated tickets - Cusack stand section 303 row O which I would like to swap for 2 pitch 2 tickets. These are Platinum tickets which have a great view of both stages. Let me know if interested and we can arrange a swap.
  4. Hi, Looking to trade 2 Pitch 1 tickets for a Pitch 2 ticket. 4 of us are in the Pitch 2 area and we now only need 1 of the 2 Pitch 1 tickets and are hoping that somebody needs an extra ticket enough they are happy to trade ?.
  5. Stones at Croke Park

    Media today suggests that the Rolling Stones are playing Croke Park at the end of June. This rumour has been doing the rounds over the last couple of weeks, when U2 announced there was to be no second night. Date for Stones is end of June, which ties into GAA fixture calendar. So definitely no second night in 2017 for U2.
  6. Anyone interested in swapping London Day 2 (July 9th) 4 x GA Standing tickets for Dublin (July 22nd) 4 x anywhere tickets but in the €39.05 - €110.00 price range. Would obviously resolve the price difference so no-one is out of pocket. Post in this thread or PM. Many thanks.

  8. Have an unused access code that can be used in the upcoming presales this week for the second dates in London, Rome, Paris & Amsterdam. Anyone with 4 spares / 4 tickets they are unhappy with for the Dublin gig want to exchange for tickets for any of these second dates? All Croke park tickets considered (but preferably 4 seated together). Would obviously resolve the price difference so no-one is out of pocket. PM me if interested.
  9. Back to the Croke Park Future

    Exactly a week ago I was browsing YouTube and found this great TV-Documentary from 1987. It was filmed at and around the time U2 came back to Croke Park to play 2 nights during the Joshua Tree Tour. It's amazing stuff, as everything seems to be totally different now. Edge's ponytail, Bono's childish face, Croke Park was twice as small and looked hundred years older, the Troubles in Northern Ireland were still a big issue, Dublin looked like shit. U2 fans on the pitch were crushing each other, crowd control was invented years later, right after Hillsborough. The band played the songs with a lot more pace, the BPM was at least 20 higher, U2 played stadiums without the usage of videoscreens. It looks like the crowd was at least 20 years younger (and wilder) then. No single person had a camera, was hooked up to cyberspace or were talking to each other. They all went mad! It got me thinking what I did and where I was back then and I realized I am - and we are - getting old :-) Lots of things have changed, and now it's coming back. I'm really curious to see what tricks the band will have to make us relive that 1987 feeling. Will Edge and Bono have huge hair-implants? Will they play their songs in 1980's BPM? Will the Dalton Brothers come back? Will U2 have the guts to tell the audience that smartphones are strictly forbidden? Can they shut down the internet on show night? Are they going to refuse to use videoscreens? Or will they change the only thing that's still the same? Larry Mullen junior... Hope you guys were successful with the ticket quest, at least that was a lot easier this time. In case you're interested, take a break and watch U2 - World in Action 1987. You'll love it!
