  1. "on the road for quite some time" ...you can say that again!
  2. I am going to see Heaven 17 with the wonderful Propaganda ( nice name for a magazine ... ) ( well now they are called XPropaganda..) on Saturday in Birmingham ...and I have a spare ticket if anyone is interested ...
  3. Was there ever an explanation for why Bono says Uno dos tres CATORCE ???
  4. I went to the Friday show ....my 10th ( I think) ... and I managed to get on the rail at the 'B' stage - what an awesome place to stand!!!!! I also managed to get my first ever setlist ( thanks to the wonderful Steven) which is now highly treasured! It was great to meet others such as Mark, ( aka Paul) , Vince , Vicky and many others! I will look through my photos and share the best ones when I get the chance !
  5. I loved it 3 rows from the front near The Edge on the main stage in Copenhagen ...but might fancy a change for Manchester .... so if you had an empty venue on arrival where would you stand .... on the right as you face the B stage - or the left ...or does it matter? You are all so experienced whereas I am (relatively) innocent ...
  6. So if considering standing for the B stage ....where is the BEST place to stand .... along one side of the long walkway - or at the very end of the stage ? At the end of the B stage wouldn't Larry have his back to you ??? Advice greatfully received ..... Thanks U2 team!
  7. Have a brilliant time those of you at tonight's concert..... I just wish I was there with you ....
  8. I loved Copenhagen ....just wish I was in Hamburg right now !!! Manchester to come ...
  9. This was my 9th U2 gig - and my first visit to Copenhagen since 1982! We stayed at Cabinn Metro which was a budget hotel only 5 minutes walk fron the Royal Arena! I thought the intro to Blackout was immense - and it was a true rockin' start to the show. I love the energy of I Will Follwo ( and The Electric Co when they play it ...) and from then on onto some very strong songs with a splash of new songs emerging. Personally I enjoy All Because of You and I was surprised to see it on concert one ahead of Red Flag Day. The whole concert was a rich blend of old and new with brilliant graphics on the screens too. I always enjoy Until The End of the World, City of Blinding Lights and you can nerver grow tired of One in the encore. Next time, in Manchester I am thinking of standing near the B stage as the energy from Elevation and Vertigo was a little hard to feed off - we were 4 rows from the front near where The edge plays - so maybe a new perspective should be sought for Manchester - what do you think? Elevation set the crowd jumping further - though the locals near us seemed happy to stand and appreciate rather than rockin'. Our only drawback was a very tall gentleman - probably 6 foot 8 inches tall - which kept obscuring our view - and the shorter ladies stood near us got somewhat frustrated ...as I can imagine when you are an average female height - I am a below average height male so I know how the ladies feel. However, for a split second I could see all four members of the band and I managed to capture my best ever shot of the whole band. All the spectacular lighting changes play havoc if you are trying to take a photo with either a camera or a phone. The song that first attracted me to U2 when I was a student was FIRE ....it would make a great live song ....is there any reason they do not play it? I love the raw energy in it and would love to se it played live ....How about the first show in Manchester please Bono, Larry, Adam and The Edge? So here is my photo , taken at the end of the main show, just after City of Blinding Lights ...Hope you like it!
