  1. Thank you all for participating in the #U2getherAtHome watch along party. Great music is even better in good company!! Thanks for the fun night and see y'all next week !

    1. Manohlive


      Thank you.  It's a wonderful distraction. 

  2. I know it's party time but that might help to know what time is it in the world!? https://time.is/GMT
  3. Aaaaaaand... the polls are now closed ! Tomorrow night, 9PM GMT, join us right here on this thread or on twitter with the #U2getherAtHome hashtag for a nice break from reality. A few recommandations : Get that mirror ball spinning, those poptarts grilling and that inflatable lemon out of that box in the garage, as I think that tomorrow night there will be quite some Boom Cha-ing happening because.... POPMART Live from Mexico City wins that first round ! HA ! See you then, i'll bring the virtual #U2pints. Stay home, stay safe, and get ready to party #U2Fam !
  4. Little update on the poll : Zoo : U2 Go Home is largely leading here ! Twitter : Zoo TV is def in first place, Closely followed by U2 Go Home and Popmart. Both polls will run til next Friday. How will it work from there on ? Well, i'll combine both and the winner gets the 1st Saturday, and then we'll work our way down for the other ones. I can only pray we won't watch that many of them but for now, that's the plan. Again. Stay safe #U2Fam/Zootopians.
  5. I can't sing. Too afraid Bono breaks free and come after me for murdering his song 😂 But I'll join someway.. Thanks Dani! Stay safe x
  6. New one on twitter. Prob an harmless bot. Not reaching out to anyone I think but still....
  7. Aww thank you so much for your kind words. As I was saying it's not just me - an idea which sparks another one and so on... I'm just a drop on that ocean 😁 But that's exactly how we'll get through that and how life can be fragrant.(if I may borrow those words ) TOGETHER! Looking forward to it!
  8. Welcome guys to this new thread that will hopefully be filled with laughter and conversations and will turn into a nice chapter of the zootopians resilience. ✌️ Ghost towns are emerging all over the world because of that nasty virus and the very necessary lock in. Every day it just gets a bit more scarier. Anxiety is rising up for everyone. I was walking the aisles of my local supermarket the other day and all I could see was empty shelves. No toilet paper, no canned tuna, not the one veggie that my kids actually want to eat. That’s depressing. The fear in people's eyes and distancing is depressing. Where is the world heading ? And then there was a sound.. That PA blaring music. And guess what ? It was a U2 song. That’s when I realized that there’s one thing we will never lack of, and that’s music. Music that lifts us up and brings us together at all times. The good and the bad. After the subscriber special streaming of #U2Berlin4k,the worst thing happened. Silence. We just had two hours of fun, joy and friendship. Two hours that allowed our minds to wander back to better days and take that much needed break from reality. And in that silence I could only hear my own thoughts resonating “ We need that. We need that light.” And that’s how the first spark started. As it often is, an idea led to another one, to another person, and then another and that’s when I saw we were all on the same page. As I was saying on my post yesterday, we have all the means necessary to keep the party going. We’re stuck home with a bunch of DVDs and a whole world of friends at our fingertips. The #U2Fam knows all about social distancing already. U2 has been building bridges across the world and our hearts for over 40 years so yes we know how that works to be away from our friends. But we also know how much stronger that bond gets then. From Saturday 28th, we’ll be throwing watch along parties every week at 9GMT until we’re all out and safe - or run out of DVDs. Everybody’s welcome to join and participate. And here’s how we gonna do it : We’ll have a poll open here on the Zoo and on twitter for a whole week so YOU can choose which live shows you’d like to watch - People have the power ! Every Saturday, put on your DVD and press play at exactly 9PM GMT so we’re all in synch (Note : It won’t be streaming from the site or else, it will be your own material) Chat along here on the zoo or on twitter using the #U2getherAtHome hashtag. Grab a fresh beer or two and install a mirror ball (optional) Enjoy. Have fun. Forget about the outside world for a minute because I promise that there won’t be silence on my watch. HA ! (Pro tip : let the kids stay up to recreate a live show atmosphere - them running and bouncing in front of the TV should do the trick.) Bono recently said to sing as an act of resistance. Well. He usually gives us pretty good advice doesn’t he ? I hope to see you around. I need it. We need it. Resist and stay safe. What time is it in the world ? (I’m not even sure what day it is to be honest....) One thing for certain when U2 is involved…. it’s always PARTY TIME !
  9. Thanks for the party guys! One of the best I had from my couch. It was amaziiiiing! 

  10. Happy birthday Jazzman! Keep putting the groove into our lives!

    The best of times... Awesome performance, and so healing. Still thankful they came back after the november attacks. Adam´s joy to be on stage is highly contagious !
  13. Happy birthday to the poshest, coolest, the best kimono wearer of the band, Mr. Awesome Clayton ! (that'd be you Adam. Just in case) 60. That deserves a few words. Or maybe just one... Thanks. Thanks for always having a kind word for us fans even if that means showing up late after show in your bathrobe / kimono (Note : it's only cool when YOU do it. Talking from experience) Thanks for the #Pinkadam love (and all the times I lost it out of utter joy when we could see it peaking behind your bass). Thanks for trying every single time to read our signs at the rail, even the silly ones (that's mostly mines). Thanks for being so open and honest about mental health issues and thus such a source of inspiration for the rest of us still struggling. And I really mean that. A lot. Thanks for letting me believe I can actually play bass (and realize 2 minutes in I'm way off beat but eh.. Details.) Thanks for shining like a pink sparkly bass and let us into that light after all these years. Thanks for the smiles that warm our heart and the winks that feel like suspended eternity for a second. Thanks for the joy, the thrill and that whole roller-coaster of emotions we experience thanks to your music (and your bass lines. Obviously.) And also thanks for not swaying too hard on stage... For obvious reasons Bono's stated last tour. Lastly, I'm sorry but couldn't wrap that post with a nice wrapping paper you'd like but be sure that it's wrapped with all the love and gratitude I have for you and those 3 other lads who bring me so much joy. Happy birthday Adam. You rock. Stay awesome. Much love and take care x
  14. It's been a while since I had to go on a hashtag hunt to find a live feed. We've been spoiled !
  15. Denmark is about to get some serious southern heat! If they were on fire before those shows, now I think they're ready to combust!
