One note on the credit card entry thing. I've used this many times for many different concerts in the past, with no issue. UNTIL... I/E tour Vancouver 1: we were lined up in about 10 or so different rows for the different doors to go through. Our row happened to have technical difficulty with their credit card reader, so all the other rows were getting scanned in and running to the stage, and our row was standing still!!!! Beyond frustrating. Eventually they used one scanning machine for two different rows, which was slow going but at least we were moving.

 

Anyhow, barring any technical difficulties with scanning, it's a great system. Just hope you are in a line up where the machine doesn't break down.

Congrats on attending your 30th show. As you said, they've never played that often in in NZ, so where else and how far have you gone?

4) Song on JT you most want to hear?

Very tough question. Since I first saw Rattle & Hum, I've always said I need to see Exit live before I die, and I will finally get my chance. But then I thought, the fact that they have NEVER played Red Hill Mining Town live, and we will be the first people in history to hear it live, BLOWS MY MIND!!! Can't wait!!!

 

 

I had the same reason for Exit (still one of the most powerful performances in that movie) BUT....excellent point on Red Hill.

Saw the '87 Joshua Tree Tour (my first U2 gig) in my hometown at B.C. Place.

 

After seeing all the subsequent tours (except the Lovetown Tour) at home and elsewhere, I'm gonna see the '17 Joshua Tree Tour in my hometown at...B.C. Place!!!

 

"Full circle", or what, eh?

 

I'll be the guy cheekily wearing my well worn POPMART '97 Tour shirt in the cheapest fan club seats possible.

 

1987, 2017 and 1997...at least there's a pattern ;-)

 

Love the underrated song "Red Hill Mining Town" and the odd, sweaty music video that compliments it.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytRekLUX3GE

 

Hope to hear it live once and for all.

 

Now that I have a minute to actually count the shows I've been to...

 

1987 Joshua Tree - Vancouver

1992 ZOO TV - Vancouver

1992 ZOO TV Outside Broadcast - Vancouver (both nights)

1997 Popmart - Eugene; Edmonton; (both nights); Vancouver, Seattle

2001 Elevation  - Calgary (both nights); Vancouver

2005 Vertigo - Vancouver (both nights, plus attended the filming of "City Of Blinding Lights" video)

2009 360 - Vancouver (both nights);

2011 360 - Seattle

2015 I+e - Vancouver (both nights)

2017 Joshua Tree - Vancouver

 

So...19 shows.

 

20 if you count the music video.

 

21 if you count JT '17,

 

Needless to say, seeing them at BC Place this year will be Sort Of A Homecoming...
