  1. Hi y'all! Logged in for the first time since the Time Before (pre Covid), such a different world. Hope all is well, or as well as can be, with all. 

  2. If you're staying in the Loop, there will be enough fans leaving the shows, that really, you can walk from the UC to your hotel. Probably about a 20 minute walk. I'm in Chicago, so holler if anyone is looking for things to do, places to eat if you plan on staying in town a few days.
  3. Because you only live once and I haven't been able to get GA for either Chicago show, I just caved and got the $600 some odd VIP ticket for the second Chicago show. (!!!!!!!) So. Who has gotten VIP tickets from past tours? What do you get? Back stage tour? Nice swag? What sort of chances of meeting the band? OMG SO EXCITED!
  4. I also want to thank the Mods here and everyone else from atu2.com , u2gigs and all the other fan sites who have worked so much to help their fellow fans out. We are a tribe. The friends that I have made from this band are some of the best I've ever had. WE CARRY EACH OTHER. I have a GA for Chicago because of a friend I met in the GA line two tours ago. She bought one for me off of another fan who was willing to let it go and is sending to me and refuses to let me pay her back.
  5. Here's a point that I don't recall seeing in the letter sent to the band/management (and if I'm wrong, bitch slap me now), this corporate greed money grab goes against everything the band has stood for. They've always been advocates of the little people, even when they hit rock god status. They, especially on the last two tours, have been willing to jump out of the fish bowls they live in and reach out and make them selves available to fans. I've stated a couple of times on here and on a couple of Facebook threads how heartbroken I was that the band sunk to the corporate greed level that they've always been so against While Guy's response isn't totally satisfactory, I'd like to think that he's trying? I am willing to give the boys and him one more chance. And I'm not usually the type to give second chances. Please, Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry, please continue to be my rock, my church and the sound track of my life.
  6. No GAs were available for Chicago at 10 am. WTF. All that's coming up is seats behind the stage or overpriced 100 level seats. WHO THE FUCK GOT ALL THE GAs? So here I am, a 30 year fan, long time fan club member but I don't have tickets. SO tempted to cancel my membership. Time to drink.
  7. If I am unable to get tickets, I can always buy the album with my employee discount at work. Because I'm pretty much with you on everything you've said and I've been a fan for just as long. This band has been my church and my rock for most of my life. They broke my heart yesterday.
  8. Ditto. Still no GA for Chicago. (Using code for iNNOCENCE presell) also don't have it in me for seats behind the stage. I'll keep trying but will probably (hopefully)get tix in next weeks general sale.
  9. I don't blame the band. I blame the scalpers who caused the band to go in this direction. I blame Live Nation and TM for being greedy. I have been a life long fan and a long time member. I did not get tickets today. While I know I can probably get tickets during the general sale, and that I can use my codes for any possible added dates (Chicago), I'm honestly done. I will no longer renew my membership. This band is my church. Right now I feel like my church has abandoned me. And that breaks my heart.
  10. For those of y'all coming in from out of town, it might be worth checking out hotels in the suburbs and either renting a car or taking the El or Metra into downtown for the show. Evanston, Il (the burb just north of the city - where Northwestern University is - is an easy El ride. From Evanston on the purple line and then transfering to the red line, it takes just over an hour to get to downtown Chicago. (also known as The Loop). Just a thought. (I mentioned Evanston since I work there and it really is easy to get anywhere on the El or Metra. Just takes some planning) Hope to see y'all there! SO excited another date was added!
  11. I still have 2 codes left, keeping fingers crossed that another Chicago show is added because I am going for Red Zone if that happens. Can't afford it but, um, that's why (insert deity you worship here) created credit cards, right? See y'all in June!
  12. I met SO MANY amazing people last tour, looking forward to seeing y'all again in June!
  13. Used 2 for Chicago GA, saving the other 2 for a possible second show, code is struck out. I know y'all are working on it. Thanks in advance for all your work!
  14. 25353 Happy New Year to all!!! 175 more days til our boys are in Chicago! I hope everyone has a great 2015! Hugs to all!
  15. Love all the cards! And the magnet! And the recipe! Y'all are so creative!
