  1. Got on the front row! But more importantly got to sing you’re the best thing with my new fiancée and have a massive dance with the biggest band in the world, in the greatest city in the world. Thanks so much U2 and the site! Really needed that “great washing thing” that is a U2 gig this week!
  2. This is actually pete, right? sorry Alec - getting my ‘the fly’s confused!
  3. Pete! Guess what? Me and heather got engaged!
  4. I got super fan tickets! Amaze! In shock, to be honest
  5. Email has arrived. Excitement successfully overcome. Four pictures, printed onto posh paper. I'm not sure it quite hits the heights of the last four or five years. Erm, yeah. Four pictures? Seriously?
  6. really? Hey big spender
  7. It's quite nice really it comes from a place of contentment rather than desperation for me now You going to any of the o2 gigs?
  8. Yes - I in particular am outraged at how unlucky and badly treated I was with the last giveaway.... (Before several zootopians shoot me in the head that is a MASSIVE JOKE)
  9. Slaves apparently went up to Bono after their Jools Holland performance and the B man complemented them on their sound; "you sounded great" To which they said; "hey man, you too" Awkward silence. Bono walks off. 'Twas on the Facebook - sure they made up after but very lol
  10. Joe - great guide, as ever. See you in London - I'm at the 30th and the 2nd shows
  11. Mich - there's tons of rattle & him knocking about in London vinyl stores if you need a new one...
  12. I'm so sorry all I just saw this. Probably too late, but I wish you all a happy christmas and the most wonderful 2015 you can possibly have!
  13. Our very own Mrs Mike! (The one looking mortified next to me)
  14. The gig that blew my socks off was my first one, when I saw U2 for the first time in Manchester on the Vertigo Tour on June 14, 2005. I was seventeen years old (young, not dumb, just willing to be blinded) and got into U2 with 'All That You Can't Leave Behind', narrowly missing the 'Elevation' Tour 2001. I kicked myself for the remaining three years for my tardiness. Yet on a happy November in 2004, I had my first experience of queueing up to buy a new U2 album. I was such a nerd I did all my college work in advance and got my tutors' approval to take the day off. I got the train at 8
  15. My first gig ever was U2!
  16. From the album: My first U2 and indeed ever gig

    Me after my first trip to a U2 merch stand
