your age, and how many shows you've been?

Recommended Posts

 

I'm 29......I've never been to a U2 concert.

 

That does surprise me.

 

I've been able to go to every tour since Zooropa and twice on SOI.

 

It's really expensive now to go and so I don't get how folk can go 4/5/6 times each tour.

 

  At the end of the day.....I'm content I got to buy all the U2 albums and rarities I wanted,  that I can be in here in Zootopia ....That I'm living in the same day and age as them and that, probably, they'll make one more album........ And If not.....I'm REALLY content they gave me and all of us a LOT of music to enjoy and be uplifted by....Sure, some albums are better than others but that's art, that's human nature.....Nobody's perfect and all that philosophy ......

This is what being a fan is about!

 

Not how many years you've been a fan. Not whether or not you were a magazine subscriber. Not how many shows you've been to. Not whether you've met the band or not. All of that stuff is just the window dressing. If U2 is your favourite band, then you are a fan. Simple.

 

There are no diehard fans, real fans, true fans, casual fans, or so-called fans. Just fans.

Interesting post topic.  You know, because U2 isn't the hot new band, but they are also not the Rolling Stones or Eagles and this is an internet forum which didn't exist when I discovered them in 1983. So always curious of age and when people got into them.

So I am 46 fan since 1983.

Saw them in 1987 Joshua Tree

then not until 1997 Popmart

twice in 2001 - Elevation

twice in 2005 - Vertigo

2009 - 360

2011 - 360

twice in 2015 - I+E

So that makes 10 times and have tickets for Boston and NJ this summer.
