There is also a group of fans putting together a book of notes for the band.  Submitting notes is now closed, but they gathered over 600 notes from fans and hope to deliver it at some point.

What we really need is to organize a 'Guinness Book of World Records' effort in the following category: 'The most fans gathered online at the same time at the same place (U2.com) for the same purpose - to shamelessly Beg & Plead with U2 to Go On Another Tour or at least Play A Few More Concerts - as long as the concerts Include New York!'

 

It really is an actual 'GuinnessBookOfWorldRecords' category. You probably just haven't heard of it yet. But it exists. Because I just created it. Just now. :D Suggestions will be taken (here) on a rolling basis regarding when this online BeggingPleading gathering will occur.  :)

Might try to have a guitar sesh maybe. :unsure:

Well I've pitched the idea and it's been approved. :) Turns out it's also a long weekend (I had forgotten that) so that worked in my favor.

 

Planning on playing a set of one song from each album, not necessarily in chronological order, just trying to find songs that I can confidently play.

 

As I'm a bit of a novice and I'm going to be playing in the corner of the games room because that's where the power point is, I'm calling it "The 90° & Inexperience Show"

 

Will post the setlist later.
