I've some (sort of) random questions about U2...

a) what date was the second Slane gig?
b) what was the first U2 gig after Bob died?

Thanks :P

a) During the Elevation tour? The first was Aug. 25, 2001, and the second was Sept. 1.
b) London, Aug. 21, 2001. It was the same day he died.

Yup...I don't know how Bono managed to do it! Amazing.

You're welcome!

Yeah that was quite a gig! Not much of a gig to be honest. He didn't have much of a voice. But nobody minded of course.

But yeah didn't feel like a U2 gig. But you could also tell allot of the pressure was off him. The gigs in Manchester for example.

I didn't notice it neither. It wasn't til I listened to the bootleg later. His voice was even worse the next night again!

Totally weird few days were they. God knows how it must have felt for the B-man himself.

I went to the gig the following night (22nd)... man that was depressing. Poor Bono. I'm still amazed those gigs went ahead at all, but I sure hope the atmosphere will be a bit cheerier at my next U2 concert!  (The whole Edge family illness thing seems a tad ominous...)
