  1. #U2ieTour is, at its heart, about home. 'A place called home' Bono calls, as he answers his own question 'What do you want?' in the Zooropa into Streets segue in recent shows. Home can be defined in many ways, as many things, and fans this year have found a new online 'home' of sorts, a place where we gather as each show has ended, to chat, engage, hang out... The Crystal Ballroom. Just ahead of the band returning home and the first of 6 dates in Ireland, beginning in Belfast, the Zoo caught up with host Tim, the @U2Professor who told us all about it, in his own words : The Crystal Ballro
  2. Paris, France in the Autumn is such a beautiful sight to behold. The #U2ieTour has arrived, and this week the Zoo spoke to Judith from French U2 fan site U2Achtung. Bonjour les amis ! We are very happy to have the opportunity to present our French website and community to the Zootopians. U2Achtung was created 15 years ago in 2000 by Bert, Coco and Fab. The team members have changed a lot over the years, people joined and left, but today, the U2Achtung team is made up of Judith, Nadine, Antoine, Benjamin, Florian, Loïc and Matthieu. We are from France, Belgium and Switzerland,
  3. As the U2 circus gets ready to pack up and leave London town, we chatted to the good people behind long-running fan site U2Wanderer. Earlier this year they celebrated 20 years online, and we chatted to founder Aaron back then - check that out here. They have been busy since then, preparing a long-planned whole new look and name for U2Wanderer - U2SONGS, and it was great to catch up with them recently, where they told us all about it.. u2songs.com? What is that site that you ask? It’s the newest version of u2wanderer.org. Literally days old. We are just re-launching the site now with a br
  4. As the #U2ieTour moves to London, we continue our weekly focus on the fab U2 fan sites that help to make up the wider U2 Community : this week the Zoo spoke to Remy, founder of U2Start. "U2start was founded in The Netherlands, 9 years ago at age 19 (Ni-ni-ni 19!), about two years after I became a U2 fan. It started out as a personal website where I linked to various U2 material from other fansites, it became something like a startpage for U2 fans (now you know the origin of the name!). I pulled in and linked to news & setlists from other fansites (and still do!) and put U2 materials on
  5. What a great way to spend a Friday night. An intimate TV studio in London with U2 opening & closing the live show (and playing a couple of extra songs after it ended... just for us Huge thanks to the u2comteam and TFI team for sorting the Zoo out with some tickets (right up the front too!), and for looking after us so well while we were there... Heres what the zootops made of the night (adding our review highlights here as they come in, and you can check out more in the TFI thread too..) achtunglady1971 : I was one of the very lucky ones who won tickets to see the TFI Friday sho
  6. As the band moves this week to Antwerp, Belgium and Koln in Germany, the Zoo spoke to Matt & Ax, the guys behind @U2gigs... "U2gigs.com is a global effort. At its core it is two people: Matthias in Berlin and André (better known as Axver or Ax) in Melbourne". Matt handles the technical side and photos/videos, while Ax describes himself as a "setlistorian" who handles setlists, live trivia, and other information. "We are lucky to enjoy the written contributions of Matkin (aka Matthew) of Toronto and Chris of New York, the videos of Stefan of Bielefeld and Frank of Hannover, the recor
  7. Hola amigos! U2V began 15 years ago (2000) as the result of a meeting between Rafa Gallant and Javi Vara, two U2 fans in Valencia. We organized the first parties and tributes in the area of ​​Valencia as a celebration of the releases of the U2 Go Home DVD (Live from Slane Castle) and The Best Of collection. The passion and friendship inspired by U2 lead a group of friends (Valvi, Mata and Vara) to create our website U2Valencia.com. That was in April 2004, a few months before the release of the album How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. and so began one of the first Spanish U2 fan clubs, with follo
  8. Continuing our link ups with fan sites across the globe, this week, as the band moves to Berlin, we are delighted to feature U2Tour. The Zoo spoke to Hans from the core team : U2tour.de was founded on 22 September 2000, and this year celebrates its 15th birthday. The site started out as a common portal and chat forum for several German U2 fan sites, at the start of the Elevation Tour in 2001 & its message board is now the biggest German language U2 online forum. After the site’s success during the Elevation Tour, we decided to turn the then purely concert and tour focused site into
  9. Launched on September 1st 2003 as (oh, oh, oh!) “The Swedish Thing” - u2.se has just celebrated their 12th birthday. The founding members have since moved on but left duties to four dedicated fans (Simon 26, Malin 38, Fredrik 24, and Matilda, 20). Simon told zootopia : “For the iNNOCENCE+eXPERIENCE Tour, we want to (literally!) highlight Sweden’s leading role in development and aid. Inspired by the #U2ieTour bare lightbulb imagery, we decided to extend that idea to the U2 audience and their cell phones. Everyone should have a guiding light in their lives, and we can all be one. Over
  10. During the next few months, as the #U2ieTour moves through Europe we will try to connect up with U2 fan sites from each country the band is visiting.. This week, we are in Turin, Italy, and (big!) thanks to zootop Monica Martino, we hooked up with Rudy, founder of U2Place.com and asked him to let us know a bit about the site and who is involved. They are organising something very special at the Turin shows, check out their twitter feed for more details, and the hashtag #AmplyRed U2place.com started in 1999 as a simple blog in Italian... quickly became a real website with news , photos
