Key moments in U2 history @ 04:08 pm

boog0r:
I'm taking of for San Diego Friday night, with a day trip to LA on Saturday. I plan on checking out the Million Dollar Hotel, 7th and Main, and the Joshua Tree reservation (I don't care if the tree fell or not, its history).

What else is out in LA/San Diego thats part of the U2 mythos that I could catch?

This went from a trip to see U2 to a mini-pilgrimmage inside the US. And, of course, "New Year's Day" just came on the streaming radio.

I heart U2.

Watch your back at the Million Dollar Hotel. That's a section of town affectionately referred to as "Skid Row".

Also, from what I've heard THE Joshua Tree isn't in Joshua Tree but near it. There is a motel however, that claims to be the motel U2 stayed in when they shot the album photos. I don't remember the name of it, but do a little homework and I'm sure you'll find it. They used to advertise in the LA Weekly saying "Come Sleep in Bono's Bed", or something to that effect.

Good luck,

Not really near JTNP..... it's either inside or just barely outside of Death Valley Nat'l Park, about three hours from L.A. or JTNP.

You'll have a hard time finding the site of the real Joshua Tree. First of all, it's not in Joshua Tree National Park. It's in Death Valley, which is a good three hours farther from LA.

However, I do recommend you visit Death Valley (AND Joshua Tree) now while the wildflowers are in bloom. The deserts have received about three times their annual rainfall in the last two months, so everything is gorgeous. The ACTUAL Joshua Tree is somewhere near Panamint Springs.

I’m going to be in San Diego on the 27 to the Zoo, if anyone wants to meet up with me there, that would be awesome. At 9:30 am I am going to be lining up outside the venue since I have a GA so please come down and say hello J I am either going to be dressed as a large bunny rabbit or as MacPhisto. I will have a red shirt on that says “Isabelle Guns” on my shirt for the Macphisto outfit. I will post pics later of me in the outfit. I am looking forward to meeting all of you down there. I am going to buy a tour book and it would be awesome if those I met could sign it for me like a yearbook J My cell number in case you want to call and hook up is 604-603-7596, you’re calling a candian cell phone. This is my first time in San Diego and I heard that Old town is a nice place, I would love to heard down there J

P.S. I apologize for re-starting a new San Diego thread but the original thread was closed.

I can be e-mailed at bowie_gal@lycos.com or PM’d
