  1. YAY! Nice to virtually meet you Paul and congrats again! Best of luck holding it together as I clearly did not! Cheers~
  2. Is there a place set up for trades yet? I have 2 Boston GA's and need Mohegan Sun GA's in exchange
  3. Right on! My world is similar...very blessed in life and family! I did get to meet B&E in 2009 outside the Letterman show...tall guy black leather jacket that unbeknownst to me, I was being filmed by a random fan's friend and I think they were right next to me. A bit embarrassingly, I played a few of my man cards..."I Love You Bono" as he walked away from me and I then later shouted, "Can I get a man hug?!" There are times when I feel like I am still 15 when I listen to or connect with U2. My daughter (12 at the time) and I were front row, touching the e stage in New York right by Edg
  4. Give it up for Paul G. from East Amherst, NY! He’ll play mini golf and drink a not-so-mini pint with U2 backstage, all before watching the band do what they do best: rock out live in concert. Hey Paul...hoping you are a U2.com member...I am so wanting to be your new best friend and I bet we have a lot in common Look to be about the same age...fan since 1980 here, how about you?
  5. Nevermind, found the short film on iTunes and I 100% recommend watching!
  6. Has anyone seen the 8 min SOE short film with Bono's narration? I saw it (I think on iTunes) but haven't found it since...maybe it was a stream?
  7. Well that was aggressive...not bitching or moaning, sharing reality my new non friend. Did you not read the part that GA's are worthless to me because of my son?
  8. I was soooo blindly optimistic that finally in 2017, U2 would get it right. I don't think it is fair to blame Ticketmaster or LN...U2 picked their vendor. Now for the 5th tour in a row, I didn't get what I wanted. I am willing to pay crazy/fair amount for a front row seats but by 10:01 all good seats were gone or thrown in some VIP package. Ended up with overpriced RED ZONE tix since my son can't stand all day for a reasonable floor spot as he has severe heart disease...this is beyond pathetic...and the verification code didn't keep me from buying 6 tix in total. 2 GA's in Boston, 2 GA's

  10. #UnforgettableGig It was my first gig and obviously the beginning of my musical journey with the 4 guys from Dublin as U2 is the soundtrack of my life, period. May 27th, 1981 Toads Place, New Haven CT. I was a 16 yo 'preppy punk lite' from Newtown CT, sneaking in a with a couple guys with our fake ID's. (not as cool as sneaking in the side door to see the Ramones, but still quite similar We got there late and the first thing I actually heard was Adam prepping then starting OOC, awesome thump. I eventually fell in love with the whole band, but it was the rhythm that capture
