My first five U2 shows were on the Joshua Tree tour 1987.  One at L.A. Sports Arena, two at L.A. Coliseum and both shows at Sun Devil Stadium.

Emerging from the shadows and tall trees to answer this question:


Yes, I was there for Meadowlands, MSG, and Nassau Coliseum on the original JT tour.

My sister lived in London at the time, so I also got to fly over for the show at Wembley. 



My very first U2 show was the Unforgettable Fire at Radio City - I was 16. We had row 6 tickets and I rushed the stage on the first note. At 4'10", I was getting crushed up against the stage, so I climbed up onto this "lip" that I think is for the Rockettes' footlights - anyhow - Bono motioned to security to let me be and that's where I stayed for the whole show. He sang "wipe the tears off your eyes..." to me. 

---My sister and I had broken into NBC Studios a few days before in order to meet Bono, who had been a guest on "Live at Five." I was bawling like a baby and could barely form words.  What a wonderful memory that is!

I was 17 and saw U2 at Birmingham NEC, only cost me £9 face value! Still got my original JT tour T shirt and will wearing it with pride 30 years later at Twikenham which will make it my 10th U2 gig!! Respect to the many fans I've met who passed that milestone many times over. Gonna be special folks!
