This year U2 celebrates 40 years of rocking and mexican fans want to celebrate with a big party in Mexico City, which has been the stage of the Popmart Tour video, U23D and has also witness the Zoo TV, Vertigo and 360 Tours.

 

The tribute band Laughing Gas will put together a setlist conformed by the greatest hits as well as the old time classics that will make a real fan smile and want to sing; of course songs of the newest album will be included.

 

"Laughing Gas" was conceived by fans during the Vertigo Tour to celebrate the return of U2 to Mexico after 11 years and was borned by the enthusiasm only U2 creates around their fans.

 

October the 7th will be the day Mexican Fans will get together with Laughing Gas to sing and remember why U2 is such a loved band in Mexico... of course with hopes on the announcement of the new tour touching down in Mexico again!

 

Mexico will celebrate together with "Muchos huevos, grandes corazones, mucho tráfico..." as Bono once said.

 

We'll be updating this post with news

Also marking the occasion by founding and participating in the U2 WORLD TSHIRT DAY which is an annual international day of U2-ness marked by the wearing around the globe of an appropriate U2 tshirt. Offical, bootleg or homemade shirts maybe be worn. FREE EVENT No entry fee or travel required

SO WHEREVER YOU ARE IN THE WORLD 25TH SEPTEMBER GET ON YOUR U2 TSHIRT!

 

I'll be at a local arts workshop on Sunday where I'm sure I can get someone to play a U2 song or three. And I will be rocking my IETour T-shirt - hopefully I can upload a photo to the gallery on here. Let's fill the Zoo with U2 T-shirt pics!
