SOI - The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) during the Apple Event when they dropped the album. 03. What were your initial opinions of #7 and #1, and have they changed since then? Achtung Baby- My first reactions were “My gosh, what have they done?” which quickly turned into “This is the best thing ever!” and I still love it the most.

What are your favourite tracks from #6 and #12? Rattle and Hum - Hawkmoon 269 No Line on the Horizon - Magnificent 07. What memories do you associate with #14 and #8? SOE So many, but too many to mention. So, a few, a listening party that I attended in NYC. The eiTour, especially the Mod Summit in Montreal and the Apollo gig. Zootopia July 1993, getting the album and immediately falling in love with it. Best friend winning a contest to see the ZooTV tour in Dublin and taking me with her.

What are your favourite lyrics from #10 and #13? ATYCLB - Who's to say where the wind will take you Who's to know what it is will break you I don't know which way the wind will blow Who's to know when the time has come around Don't wanna see you cry I know that this is not goodbye SOI - The stars are bright but do they know The universe is beautiful but cold Or The sea knows where are the rocks And drowning is no sin You know where my heart is The same place that yours has been We know that we fear to win And so we end before we begin Before we begin 12. Which album would you listen to when feeling happy? No Line on the Horizon, because right after it came out, we took a family trip to Ireland and drove from Dublin to Cork, listening to it multiple times in the car. Happy times. 13. How many songs from #7 and #2 have you heard live? Achtung Baby - I have heard every song live now, except So Cruel. Would love to fix that. October - Gloria! and Scarlet, according to my U2gigs stats; but I feel like I’ve heard October too. 14. Which tracks from #8 and #5 should have been released as singles?

  2. Thank you to everyone that joined us for the stream today. Zootopians, you all are what made it so special. 

  3. Thanks for posting the update. I saw that earlier and didn’t think to update in here.
  4. Adam turns 60! Celebrate accordingly!

    Mods are fans too, and this night I was beside myself that I finally got his autograph. He truly is a gentleman and a sweetheart.

  14. I recommend using the Contact Us Form on the https://www.u2.com/help page to check the status. It may ask you for your Order Number, which will be the number from when you renewed and would have been on the confirmation email from when you renewed.
  15. Adam turns 60 on this Friday, the 13th of March. We want to celebrate him here in the Zoo in grand fashion. Please help us in wishing him the very best of birthdays in this thread with your own messages, your favourite photos and stories and your favourite bass lines. My wish for him is that he has the very best birthday filled with happiness and love.
  16. I remember skipping lunch to save up my money to get it. That summer was spent riding around with the windows down and the stereo blasting, singing at the top of our lungs.
  17. Happy Birthday to The Joshua Tree, the soundtrack to many a windows down, volume turned up, singing at the top of my lungs car rides.

  18. I highly recommend going out to Kilmainham Gaol. Not only was it the setting for “A Celebration” and used in the movie “In the Name of the Father”, but a huge part of the history of Dublin can be learned there.
  19. Wouldn’t that be awesome?
  20. It indicates that £1 will be given to War Child for each copy sold in the UK, but doesn’t say whether that’s the only location for distribution. The RSD list comes out tomorrow, I believe; so hopefully we will know more. They do tag the US RSD in the Instagram post, so it might be safe to assume that it will be in the US too.
  21. Thought it might be important to add this here, as people have mentioned in the past not knowing how some of these fake accounts end up finding them/messaging them. Just a short while ago the official U2 Instagram made a post about the new RSD release. I commented on it and within moments I received this: So please be aware that these people are scrolling through comments that you may make on the social media platforms. Fortunately, I have my account private, so that’s as far as they could get with me.
