    I love to sing my heart out. I enjoy playing around with words. I love to laugh - about myself, about life, about many things.
    Houshold chores - nah, but cooking is great.

  1. Köln show on Saturday October 17: Thinking about refugees travelling on foot with nothing more than what they carry about their person makes me feel a bit decadent in comparison for going to a rock show. However, I've had some hard times in my life as well and U2 have always been there to keep me company during the rainy days and Köln will be my second U2 show ever in 29 years and I don't want to miss it. I am starting to get a tiny bit worried about the journey to Köln now. Given recent border controls between Austria and Germany following the refugee situation, I'm thinking about alternatives to my already booked train ticket (for Friday October 16). Train journey from Western Austria might become a bit of a problem should there still be as many people seeking a save haven in Germany a month from now. So: just to be on the safe side - anybody going to Köln by car on Friday, October 16 and back on Sunday, Oct. 18 who would want to share? Please get in touch. Thanks. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Köln Show am Sa. 17. Oktober Wenn ich an die Flüchtlinge denke, die im Moment mit nicht mehr als das was sie am Körper tragen, reisen, fühle ich mich im Vergleich dazu etwas dekadent, weil ich in ein Rockkonzert gehe. Jedoch hatte ich selber auch ein paar harte Zeiten im Leben und U2 waren immer da und haben mir in schlechten Zeiten Gesellschaft geleistet. Köln wird mein zweites U2-Konzert überhaupt sein in 29 Jahren und ich will es nicht verpassen. Ich fange an, mir nun ein kleines bisschen Sorgen zu machen wegen der Anreise nach Köln. Angesichts der aktuellen Grenzkontrollen zwischen Österreich und Deutschland wegen der Flüchtlings-Situation, denke ich über Alternativen zu meinem bereits gebuchten Zugticket (für Fr. 16. Oktober) nach. Die Zugfahrt aus Westösterreich könnte ein Problem werden, sollten in einem Monat weiterhin so viele Menschen wie bisher einen sicheren Hafen in Deutschland suchen. Daher: nur um auf Nummer sicher zu gehen - fährt jemand nach Köln mit dem Auto am Freitag, 16. Oktober und zurück am Sonntag, 18 Okt. der mich mitnehmen könnte? Bitte um Kontaktaufnahme. Danke.
  2. Really hope we get to see Willies writing again. It's as if you're sitting right in the lobby of the Hotel Fabulous with them, doing the runner after the show, standing next to Dallas picking the guitars for the guys or being the one who puts up the setlist and the water bottles.
  3. Just heard the sad news of your loss, dear Larry. Know that your other family, i.e., all the people in towns big and small, in houses on broad avenues and on tranquil hills, that all around the world, people are thinking of you and your family right now. Your father on Earth and in heaven have become one now, watching over you on tour. Our hearts go out to you, lovely soul... xxx
  4. Seeing is believing. Right? In German there is a saying "Kopieren ist die ehrlichste Form der Bewunderung", which means sth along the lines of "copying is the truest form of appreciation". Some agents from "Improv everywhere" went on a mission and pulled off a stunt so worthy of true U2 spirit that I can only say "hats off", wishing I had a time machine to go back and witness the whole thing. They put together a band for a "secret U2 rooftop performance" right opposite Madison Square Garden a few hours prior to the real band's gig, paying tribute to the shooting of "Where the streets have no name" in the Eighties. Grab a glass of your preferred booze, turn off your phone and make yourself comfy. Its quite a loooong post, but worth it.

  5. Morning all, procedure to sell/swap paperless tickets bought from eventim: 1. go to your eventim account and click to your shop to view your order(ed) ticket(s) 2. click on "erneut versenden" (send again) 3. for the person you want to send your ticket to you have to choose their country from dropdown menu for "Land" (country). 4. choose type of their mobile phone 5. type in country code and mobile phone number of the other person. Make sure to type in the number without any blanks or it won't work. 6. press "senden" Should the recipient have an eventim-account as well, he/she will now see the ticket in his purchases just as if he had bought it himself. He also instantly gets an sms from eventim to their phone containing the link to the ticket information. You need to show this link at the venue and they'll scan it directly from your phone and Bam! you're in. I used the above procedure to sell one of my tickets today. I also used paypal option "sell using email" to get the money safely and without having to present my bank data. It worked perfectly.
  6. Update: as of today my ticket is no longer available for sale. It went to one lucky fellow this morning. Thank you to all who did inquiries and fingers crossed you'll succeed in getting your desired ticket in the end. x
  7. I got 1 GA for Berlin 25 and I'd be happy to transfer it to you cause I can't make it. I bought one for Köln instead. Eventim told me how to. Was sceptical too for this mobile thingy. They said you need to show your mobile phone link at entry and they'll scan it and you'll be fine. So if you (or somebody else) want my tic, drop me a message. Update: sorry to tell you, guys but my ticket is no longer available for sale. It went to one lucky fellow this morning. Fingers crossed for all of you still searching for a ticket. x

  9. I can't make the Berlin show and I'd like to sell 1 ticket: Berlin 25 September General admission (floor right side) Face value € 71,40. It's a paperless ticket. I'll transfer the link of the delivery code to your mobile phone. To get access at the venue you present the link and they scan it directly from your phone and that's it. Payment: invoice to your email address via paypal. Transfer of code after payment. First come first served.
  10. Thanks bigwave, that would be very much appreciated, because I also need to swap (Berlin for Köln), otherwise I won't be able to go.
  11. Bought 1 ticket for Berlin Fri Sept 25 (GA) with my presale code. After the deed was done I realized there is no chance I'll make it to the show in time from where I live. Sheer panic to get any ticket within my reach and my stupidity made me choose Berlin instead of going for Köln (about 2 hours away, Berlin appr. 5 hours away). So I'll have to try the general sale on Dec 6 and will probably end up with no ticket at all. Anyone willing to trade their general admisstion ticket for Köln on Saturday Oct 17 for my ticket Berlin Friday Sept. 25 (price € 71,40 general admission)? It is a mobile phone ticket and I'm just waiting for a reply from the vendor if it is transferrable to another person at all. Hope so.... Any comments welcome. Thanks. Erika
  12. My, my... Ain't he delicious as always, and masterly portraied. Lucky you for being able to be there when the new album happens.
  13. Feel like *grin from one ear to the other* cause I ordered "From the sky down" at my local music dealer today :-)
  14. I re-subscribed in September, too early for getting this year's U22 as subs gift. Now I have two U2 duals CDs and would love to swap one for a U22. Anyone interested?
  15. Wooooowwww, people!!!!! You really do have talent. All of you. Lovely performances!
