Good to meet you, Danette,
I drank, but never got hammered at a U2 show. I too wanted to enjoy--and remember--the experience. And you're right, the natural euphoria was far better than anything a beer could produce.
It's great corresponding with you, too. I can tell that you're a longtime fan and have watched our rock heroes age and at times, face their mortality. For a while now I realize that the road ahead is shorter than the road behind. I've wondered if they would announce a farewell album/tour or would they just say something at the end of their current tour? No hints or teaser
