  1. Can't wait! There's a Rattle and Hum Twitter Watch Party on Friday 4pm PST as well. Load up your R&H dvds and we’ll all aim to press play at (roughly) the same time. Then tweet along using the hashtags #U2Day20, #InternationalDayOfU2, and #U2getherAtHome. More details, including various timezone equivalents at https://insearchofrockgods.com/2020/08/25/u2-day-2020/
  2. I wrote a little list for Bono's 60th: 60 reasons why I love Bono. Rather than copy pasting the whole thing on here, here is the link :P http://buff.ly/2Ldg3sq
  3. The second annual International Day of U2, September 25, is fast approaching so I thought I would give a heads up! If you are in a tribute band or want your local theatre to play Rattle and Hum, or you want to organize a pub night or something, now's the time to start planning! Let me know if you do host an event or hear of one and I will post the details on my blog. In the meantime, for more info you can check out my blog at https://insearchofrockgods.com/2018/06/23/u2-day-2018/ and/or join the Facebook Event page here https://www.facebook.com/events/507192486363449/ Cheers!
  4. you are welcome and thank you to everyone! I am loving all your cards!
  5. Hey Julie - for some reason the forum isn't letting me PM - is there another way I can send you my info for the card exchange?
  6. Today is the day! Happy U2 Day everyone! Don't forget to add the hashtags #U2Day17 and #InternationalDayofU2 on your posts!
  7. #U2Day17 is almost here! One way we can celebrate this wonderful band on Sept 25 is by being the change they inspire us to be. For a list of 10 change the world organizations supported by U2, check out my latest blog: https://insearchofrockgods.com/…/17/10-organizations-u2-day/
  8. Thanks to some excellent advice from fellow fans, I have changed the short hashtag for International Day of U2. Please use #U2Day17 and #internationaldayofu2 when posting about your U2 celebrations on September 25. I've updated my previous posts with the new info. One month to go! Check out my blog for the details and/or join the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/2357967637762396/?acontext={"ref"%3A"4"%2C"feed_story_type"%3A"308"%2C"action_history"%3A"null"} https://insearchofrockgods.com/2017/08/11/i-do-u2-proposing-september-25-as-international-day-of-u2/
  9. So I received a lot of support last week for #internationaldayofu2, including several great ideas to help get the day up and running. One of those ideas was to create a FB Event page for the Day (Thank you Virginie) - so here it is below (not sure how this link will work outside of Facebook but I try :D). If it doesn't link - just search in FB for International Day of U2 in Events. https://www.facebook.com/events/2357967637762396/?acontext={"ref"%3A"4"%2C"feed_story_type"%3A"308"%2C"action_history"%3A"null"} (I've set the date in Edmonton time, but for all the hours that it is September 25 somewhere in the world...) Please join and/or share the link as you wish! I also added a page to my blog https://insearchofrockgods.com/idou2-events/ to list any known planned events for the day (or around the day)- I already have 2 - the U241 Celebration at The Church in Dublin, and Rattle and Hum at the Metro Theatre in Edmonton - both planned before I sent out the first post - so happy coincidences! Also - if you want to translate any of this post or the FB event page or blog pages into other languages, please do and send to me - I will add to all these pages. It is an International Day after all!!
  10. Thanks I was really impressed with DDAD - it was so much fun and the participation from DD was pretty cool
  11. So, inspired by the U240 celebrations and yesterday's Duran Duran Appreciation Day, I'd like to declare from this day forward September 25 as the annual International Day of U2 for any and all fans around the world to join together in celebration of this band who have given us so much over the years. I've put some thought into what this Day could look like - check it out here https://insearchofrockgods.com/2017/08/11/i-do-u2-proposing-september-25-as-international-day-of-u2/ Hope you will join me in celebrations #U2Day17 And apologies for the massive cross-postings on here, atU2.com and social media, but I want to get the word out! Please share! This could be so awesome!
  12. Any news on meet ups for Belfast? Drinks on non-concert days (as I imagine most people will be in line early on the days of )? or any touristy things? I'm thinking of doing the hop on hop off tour, or at least the Titanic museum if anyone wants to join? I'm there from the 16th to the 20, seeing the show on the 18th (seats), so any day works for me.
  13. Belfast is a beautiful city - I recommend the black taxi tours if you are interested in the conflict and peace process. of course there is the Titanic museum, shopping downtown, St Georges Market, Crumlin Gaol and more. If you want to throw them all together there's the hop on hop off tours http://belfastcitysightseeing.com/hop-on-hop-off-bus-stops/they go to some of the same places as the black taxi tours, but if memory serves me correctly, the black taxi tour guides are less touristy, more lived through it... though this could have changed since I took the tour. I highly highly recommend doing a day trip out of Belfast to the Giant's causeway - this is an amazing rock formation thing on the coast. Words can't describe - google it and go there
  14. I'm in Alberta, Canada and just received my Belfast ticket yesterday. I also wonder if you couldn't arrange to have it sent to the hotel/hostel where you are staying in Dublin?
  15. A local guide of best places etc would be fantastic! I've been to Belfast a number of times, but am only familiar-ish with city centre, and really just the mainstream stuff. Local advice is much appreciated and adds the best depth to out-of-towners' experiences! Thanks!
  16. mine is SthL1 . 1 and 2 look like they are in the end of the area where the I stage will be. Should be great seats!
  17. I would love one of those extra tickets for either of the dublin nights - especially the 28th (my birthday) if you end up with spares
  18. I tried for Dublin and Belfast in the general sale on Monday - no luck for Dublin at all, managed to get a single seated ticket for Belfast 1. Still trying for Dubs.
  19. I tried so hard this morning - but couldnt get tickets for Dublin. Boo. I did manage one solo ticket for Belfast though, so yay - I'll still be staying in Dubs though - maybe I can find tickets between now and then. representing Alberta Canada. This will be the third tour I've been in Dublin but unable to find tickets for their shows!! fingers crossed.
  20. Please please please - as with probably everyone here - this is such a bucket list item. and November 28 is my birtday... Would love 2 tickets to that show but I'll take any date!
