  1. Great review - great show but the floor was over packed - I think they got the numbers wrong there
  2. There are a lot of people who fear there will be no Dublin date this year - probably because Bono stated in an interview with TodayFM that the 3Arena was not big enough to house the show - as this is the biggest indoor arena in Ireland (never mind Dublin) it does cause a big problem for a December concert with regards to the venue - an outdoor space maybe utilised but this defeats the object of the intimacy that the rest of the world has enjoyed with this tour so far - it will be interesting to see how or if they sort this problem out?
  3. A lot of good and very good tracks at the moment - I only fast forward through one or two (Wolves). However, I normally only award a song or an album 'great' after I see and hear it live. That's when my judgement is made about the album and its songs. Eg. Volcano took on a new dimension last night on Jools Holland live show. The true test, therefore, will come next year - bring on the live shows please!!
  4. Rumour mill ......but Word out of Live Nation in Toronto today by a top secret source is that the next U2 Tour will start in Europe on May 1 and 2 in Paris and they will play arenas in Europe for 3 months. The tour will be called the "Volcano Tour" and the stage will be in the shape of a volcano of some kind. The band wil take August off for vacation then head to North America and play arenas in the US and Canada in September - November then head to Mexico and Australia and play outdoors stadiums in December before Christmas. The band intend to play stadiums in South America in March 2016 and
  5. Achtung Baby, Joshua Tree & HTDAAB in no particular order as they all have very special different and unique qualities and melodies - kinda sums up why/how brilliant U2 have been over 3 decades.
  6. The boys take to the stage at Heinz Field!!! Bring it on:-)
  7. My last ever 360 show was in Pittsburgh - popped up there on my own for the show but had another fabulous evening in the company of U2. Bad was played to close the show with snippets of 40 - truly amazing. The people of Pittsburgh were very friendly and hospitable including these 2 lovely ladies with great smiles. 32 shows completed - cant wait for 33!
  8. A great night in New York - me and the clan including my 2 young men had an amzing 5 days in New York capped off with a fantastic show by U2 including lots of extra songs that I hadnt heard/seen before in Europe - Out of Control was a brilliant end to the show!
  9. U2 Gig number 30 for me and 96000 people and my brother shared it with me. Another perfect night !!
  10. Aug 2010 in Frankfurt. The perfect combination:U2 and a beer.Happy days!
