  1. Happy to see a mention of Gord's passing here. This also affected me in a deeper way than I anticipated. Maybe more so the diagnosis than the end. I actually shed a tear listening to Nautical Disaster just after the Hip's last concert. Couldn't listen to Day for Night for almost a year afterward. I guess it's been a mourning period was a long time running.
  2. Gibson Hotel, just across the Liffey from Hanover Quay. Still close enough to Croke and downtown and I like to walk, so it should be great. Paid a hefty amount because I booked late, but that's on me. This is gonna rock!
  3. Section 331 Row J. Should be interesting, a chance to compare an arena show to a stadium show within 2 years.
  4. Where the fuck did Monday go? What a final album. What an artist. David Bowie will be missed dearly.
  5. This is how I felt when I bought my pre-sale tickets... (I just had my 47th birthday on 08 August.) There were a couple of songs on the new album that I liked, but for the most part, I wasn't terribly excited about most of the new songs. In May, my husband and I traveled from Dallas, TX to Phoenix, AZ to see both shows there. Words cannot even describe how the live shows completely changed my opinion. The new songs are so much better live. I feel like Bono is really connecting with the fans. I enjoy it when he talks and discusses the stories behind the songs. In Phoenix, we stood outside
  6. These were incredible shows, both of them. I was close to the main stage in the stands on Adam's side for show #1. Then, the opposite side but way up in the second last row, which did not matter at all. Different perspectives, but thrilling each time. They played October!
  7. If you go your way and I'll go mine...

  8. Excellent video for an excellent song. Managed to capture the power of the 13 minute film very nicely.
  9. Recently stumbled upon U2's cover of this song. What a performance! There's a great folk/rock act there. Rattle and Hum didn't quite capture it, though. The clip is from 1987 right before they went on tour to support the Joshua Tree. I assume many of you have seen it, but if you haven't, check it out.
  10. Cedarwood Road has also got my attention more lately. Volcano was instant, as was SLBT, then TIWYCRMN, now this.
  11. Just sent my contribution in. I'm Dave, from Canada
  12. Hey, I just figured out the whole e-book thing! Great idea. Kind of makes writing the story worthwhile. Now we get to share with everyone else who wrote. My story ended up being two pages, no pictures...those are mine! Thanks for putting it together. It's a nice touch.
  13. The Crystal Ballroom struck me as a potential single immediately upon hearing it. I agree with those saying it would go off live.
  14. Let's see I've seen Kings of Leon- put me off them entirely...for good Kanye West- about what I expected, wasn't as a big an a$$ as now though. I sat through his set 3x. Black Eyed Peas- surprisingly solid. They brought the energy to the Vegas desert and it set up the rest of the night properly The Fray- God, it just wouldn't stop. I wasn't sad I spent 90 mins in the merch line (four booths on the concourse for 50,000+ people...nuts!) in Edmonton, missing the entire set. I had to hear it, however. So, no to the Fray. No, also to Imagine Dragons, Bastille, Coldplay, Mumford and Sons
  15. I'll be there for Saturday and Sunday. Sec 109 one night, 222 the next. Should be a blast!
