  1. I was a Bit bored and thought about this... The Joshua Tree runs for some 45minutes, U2 usually play for a couple of hours, so what would be considered to fit in with that Era? Just before The Joshua Tree came out they played... The Conspiracy Of Hope Tour Bad C'Mon Everybody Give Peace A Chance Happy Birthday Help! I Shall Be Released MLK Maggie's Farm New Year's Day Pride Sun City Sunday Bloody Sunday Then there was the main event... Joshua Tree Tour 11 O'Clock Tick Tock 40 A Sort Of Homecoming Bad Bullet The Blue Sky C'Mon Everybody Can't Help Falling In Love Christmas (Baby Please
  2. I loathe ticketless booking, it's my new pet hate, I have all my U2 tickets in a big framed picture and want to continue to add to them but when I go on this tour I'll get nothing, no memento!, I contacted ticketmaster initially and discussed it with them, tried to change to a ticket option but no chance, it really is a tight operation and I guess you can understand why when people are scalping fans mercilessly, I just hope that when we do turn up to the show we get something other than a wee ink stamp on the hand!!

It was an amazing show all round but U2 were the best...of course
  5. I'm off to the hydro tonight to suffer through all the other acts ( ) to just see U2 , once they were announced i just had to be there, ideal pick me up for some recent depressing times, had to get the tickets via the expensive stubhub site though, but worth every penny
  6. Well said You know for all the flak U2 have taken, for all the disparaging comments & attempts to belittle them, they are always gracious in their response. That's just one reason why they are a class act
  7. The year was 1984, Silent Running were a band coming out of Belfast and making a big impression with their debut album 'Shades of Liberty' They were playing in a venue in Glasgow called 'Night Moves' & myself and some friends decided to travel through to see them. We were barely teenagers at the time & money was limited so in orderto assure my child fare on the bus through to Glasgow I took my birth lines with me, The venue was licensed so we then had to act all mature and 18 to get in, ridiculous looking back with us thinking wmaturity was lowering the tone of your voice to a deeper s
