  1. It's time for me to talk about my memories:😃 In 1988, I was only 7 years old; that means I only started being a U2 fan much later. But one thing I can say for sure is that Rattle and Hum is where everything started. To be more specific, 2000 was the year. I was living with my sister, brother and cousin in Porto Alegre (the biggest city in Southern Brazil). We were all living there because we were studying at a Federal University, except for my cousin (who was taking a course to pass the “SAT” these Federal Universities require - which he, unfortunately, did not pass by the way. He had to go to a Private/Payed one). He was having a History Class on Saturday and that was about Ireland’s history. He invited me to go with him and I accepted the invitation. In the middle of the class, the teacher showed a part of the Rattle and Hum DVD: “Sunday Bloody Sunday”. When I heard the power of that song, especially Bono’s speech, I suddenly felt something in my heart that I could not explain (maybe I was Irish in a past life). U2 had me at “F the revolution”! 😆 Always working a lot and studying, I did not have much time for music, but, some time later, when I had already graduated, my ex-husband (who was only my boyfriend at the time) suggested me to rent Rattle and Hum, which I did and, after that, I JUST WAS NOT THE SAME PERSON ANYMORE!
  2. Yes, I've already contacted the post office, but nothing. I received all my gifts until 2017. After that, they just did not come anymore. Same with other people in my country. I sent an e-mail to this contact: orderhelp@livenationmerchandise.com.
  3. Same here. I'm from Brazil and I haven't received the 2018 and 2019 gifts yet. It's a shame! I have already sent an e-mail to Live Nation, but I got no reply. For us, 50 dollars (the dollar is almost 6 reals) is equivalent to 1/3 of the minimun salary. We pay this much and we receive this kind of treatment? Very disappointed!
  4. I just have received a message from U2.com saying that the DVD has been shipped (to Brazil)! But the funniest and most curious thing about it is that I haven't received the 2018 and 2019 subscription gifts yet. I guess maybe Bono himself will send me these ones. 😁😁
  5. "If there's an order in all of this disorder.
    Is it like a tape recorder?
    Can we rewind it just once more?"

      A dead man won’t need to wake up to get us through this. We just need enough positive actions from the people that are still here to help us heal from these many wounds.


  6. That story made me cry (I'm a very good cryer as you already know). Thank you for posting it.
  7. Welcome, Raíssa. I'm from Brazil too! My name is Andrielly and I started posting on zootopia in October, 2018.
  8. "Future needs a big kiss."

      Yes, it does. May the kisses keep coming...


  9. "Now you're at the other end of the telescope.
    Seven billion stars in his eyes
    So many stars, so many ways of seeing
    And this is no time not to be alive."
    Dedicated to my boyfriend who lives at the other end of the telescope.
    "Sing your love, be known! LET YOUR LOVE BE KNOWN!"

      He is a very lucky man. 🤗❤️

      "Let your love be known" is always good advice - we will always practice that wisdom. ❤️❤️

      Thank you, baby. 😊


  10. U2.com has announced the 2020 subscription offer, and part of us, Brazilians, haven't received the 2019 gift yet! And even worse: the 2018 gift I got was damaged. I wrote a message to Live Nation; they said they were going to send me a new one, but nothing has arrived. Disappointing!
  11. Happy Birthday to the first manager of U2! 

    1. dmway


      His leadership skills allowed the band to thrive in its earliest days. 😊

  12. Thank you for having done all the planning for the trip (I only came with the idea). Thank you for driving all the way from LA to Las Vegas, then all the way from LV to Death Valley and then all the way from DV to LA. Special thanks to the most wonderful band in the world (Do I need to say which?). If it weren't for you, both of us would have never met. 😊
  13. Here is another angle of the rooftop:
  14. Hi. I guess I didn't answer your question properly, but I think I have already told you how "I managed to run into Bono by The Wall". 😆
  15. Anybody from Brazil who is planning on going to Australia or New Zealand to see the concerts? Or am I the only crazy person who wants to travel far far away to see them? 😳
  16. Yep, me too. My eyes are full of tears! My heart is beating so strongly that I almost needed medicine today to slow it down. :)
  17. Can't sleep anymore with the great news (Australian tour)!!


  18. Pray for Venezuela!

      I am and shall continue to do so.  

  19. I have been sick for 2 months and listening to U2 does make me feel better.

    I just love you, guys.

    Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry, you are a blessing to the world!

    Ps: Hope I'll be fine to travel to New Zealand by the time you'll be there with the tour (if it is really hapenning).

      I’m sorry to hear that you were so unwell and am happy that you are well enough to post here again.

      Yes, U2’s music cures many ills. I’m glad they were able to extend their healing powers to you.

    2. Manohlive


      I am very sorry to read you have been sick for so long.  I hope you feel better soon.  U2 always makes me dance, even when I can barely stand so go for it but stay hydrated and get well.
