  1. Does anyone else think that Red Flag Day should be performed at every show? The 'WAR' sound to it, combined with all the 'RED FLAG' alarms in the USA going off, from gun control, to 'me too' to the over use of social media...#U2NYC25RedFlagDay please share, speaking of social media ;) U2NYC25RedFlagDay
  2. YAY! Nice to virtually meet you Paul and congrats again! Best of luck holding it together as I clearly did not! Cheers~
  3. Is there a place set up for trades yet? I have 2 Boston GA's and need Mohegan Sun GA's in exchange
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  6. Nevermind, found the short film on iTunes and I 100% recommend watching!
  7. 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?
  8. 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?
  9. 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

  11. Very happy! Little things, for me, is still a little bit in the lead actually...at least from a lyrical standpoint. (Also, I am a bit biased as my Mom was finally departing after a 2 year battle with Dementia and the first listen of the song was 2 weeks before God finally took her home~ So, you can understand why it is relevant) American Soul sound like a conduit between SOI and SOE as Volcano lives in this song. Only one listen, worried there may be too much 'trying to be relevant to the current landscape of the world', I'd love to hear the differences between 8 months or so ago an
  12. Does anyone know what time the public sale starts on Monday?
  13. You bought them in 2009 for the INSANE, or more respectfully stated, current market asking price of $180, but it wasn't insane then...oh, ok.
  14. Funny you say that dperry1...I agree and then realize, once it happens, a true U2 fan is a true U2 fan and we all deserve the same ops. I saw them at Toads Place in 81 and that is when it happened to me as 'U2 can happen to anyone'
  15. My issue may seem selfish. Although I ended up getting tix after 3 hrs of frustration, I got RED Zone and I was seeking low level seats ($180 or $312). I was hoping that maybe ordering a VIP package it would help... perhaps they had a different server or whatever...it worked and I have them. I am happy to help RED as already noted, but when I found out there were no seats and it was just really an 'exclusive GA section' (not noted anywhere/combined with me being so frantically finding a way to GET my tickets) it compounded my dislike of Ticketmaster and the whole process. This really is j
