  1. just a spectacular show. I really liked how it ended as the Songs of Innocence tour began, with Bono in the back of the hall with the lone light bulb. A fitting bookend to that equally spectacular tour.
  2. Does anyone know who is opening for U2 in St. Louis may 4, 2018????

      Hey Max, when I was looking at the Unforgettable Fire tour information from 1984, I noticed an omission. In between the the 12-9-1984 show in Ohio and the 12-15-1984 show in SanFransico, I attended the 12-11-1984 show in Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom. I belive the Waterboys were the opening act. Below is some info on that show from www.u2gigs.com

      Wow.  I wish I had seen that one.  What a setlist.

  3. first of all - everyone have a great time tonight, those of us who cannot attend opening night are mega jealous! For those having angst about the GA line, the heavy metal band Iron Maiden does a cool thing for their fan club members. All of their shows are GA on the floor. They have a drawing about a month before each show for what they call "First To The Barrier" which allows fan club members (plus 1 guest) with GA floor tix entry to the venue 15 minutes early so they can get prime positions on the floor. I would think U2 could easily adopt this practice or do something like allow fan club
  4. it's worth noting that the Cardinals are in town playing a game that night vs their main rival the Chicago Cubs, so downtown should be hopping. A few blocks East of Scottrade Center on Clark St, across from the baseball stadium is Ballpark Village, which should be jammed with U2 and baseball fans. Around Scottrade Center there's not a whole lot near by but within walking distance (it's supposed to be a nice day with sunny skies and temps in the 70's) there is The Hard Rock, Maggie O'Brien's, Sybergs, Schlafly Tap Room, Maurizio's, Alumni. If you have a car I'd recommend a visit to Pappys Smoke
  5. this is what I've heard/read elsewhere: May 12 - Vancouver May 20, 21 - LA (Pasadena) Rose Bowl June 3 - Chicago Soldier Field June 24, 25 - NYC (technically NJ) Met Life Stadium Other dates would be in Cleveland, Toronto, Boston (Foxboro), Philly, Washington DC, San Francisco, Seattle. Another rumor about them using the original staging from the Joshua Tree tour
  6. great thread! I have two vivid memories of The Joshua Tree - I was working at a local record store when the album was released and I remember the frenzy surrounding it, we couldn't keep it in stock. I also remember the show in St. Louis as it was the same night as game 7 of the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Minnesota Twins. Bono took the stage wearing a Cardinals jacket and said something like "as far as I'm concerned you've already won the championship" (they lost). Still one of the top 10 greatest albums ever in rock n roll history.
