  1. Did I? Haha! I am trying to figure my way around here as I haven't been active for years and only recently wanted to engage again with fellow uber fans. I was responding to your comment about the Hollywood remix and that I didn't like it much, either. Thanks for responding and have a great day!
  2. Me, too, 'cept I was a tad older (17ish) and it was the mid-90's. Still not a fan of that version.
  3. Holy-moly. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  4. He looks ageless-- a true picture of an artist in his element. Beautiful. โค
  5. My nearly 30 years of U2 fandom and numerous concert experiences and this is the culmination I have been able to achieve in Bono photography (so far). Haha. ๐Ÿ˜
  6. I really appreciate all the interactive experiences the band has been hosting in order to promote the 20th anniversary.ย  You can tell they are suffering from audience withdrawal, which must be extremely difficult for an Uber-Extrovert like our man, Bono.ย  I am quite theย introvert myself, but I can still empathize.ย โœŒ๏ธย โค๏ธ

  7. These are just absolutely adorable and delightful! How do you have them displayed? Do you have little figurines to arrange on them? I truly love them.
  8. Does anyone else find Bono's ripping of books disturbing? I know that is the point, that the violence and destruction of it is a highly effective gesture, particularly considering the texts being destroyed. True art is meant to make us feel and think (and take action). But man, was it painful for me to watch.
  9. I was absolutely, positively delighted with my RZ experience in LA. My brother and I got there at 5:15, in time to be in the raffle for backstage tours (alas, no win) and we got rail space right at the very end of the main stage. All three mobile members of our band were right there in front of us at some point in the concert!!! WOW! And having a rail to lean on really alleviated any major leg/knee/feet/back issues I may have experienced. This is why I was jazzed to have RZ tickets and not GA-- no taking off work to stand in line, no standing for hours and hours to reserve a space by some portion of the stage, no stress, really, and part of the money goes to charity, too?! What a winning deal! BTW, love the B/Sting photo. <3
  10. For some reason I was convinced that my ticket was for the Saturday LA show (I had also been on Wednesday) and so I showed up and found out that whoops! it was for Sunday. Went to the box office (it was about 6pm) and was able to score a really good single seat about 6 rows up, mid catwalk. Now, it was in the highest priced ticket range ($275!!!!) and it was only for one seat, but yes, seats are available day of. And let me tell you, I am so glad I got it (and I am so thankful I am in a position to splurge like that, too). Good luck!
  11. It is really easy picking songs one would love to hear, yet really hard trying to figure out in what order! So, my placement kinda sucks. Set 1 Joey Ramone Another Time, Another Place Do You Feel Loved Iris Cedarwood/Raised By Wolves Ultraviolet Seconds California Babyface/Lemon Breathe First Time Set 2 Vertigo Every Breaking Wave (acoustic) Please (acoustic) One Step Closer (acoustic) The Troubles Volcano Wire When I Look at the World Trip through Your Wires Elevation Encore The Fly Unknown Caller Sleep Like a Baby Tonight Promenade
  12. I agree, California is a brilliant song and I was really hoping to hear it live, especially since I saw them in LA 3 times. Unfortunately, I wasn't there on the one in five nights they played it! Ah well. As for there being less of an acoustic presence than anticipated, isn't this due to the fact that our man can not currently play guitar?
