Hello Hello!!


May 18th, 2005

Newbie + some questions! @ 10:45 pm

splishysplashy:
Hello everyone, I'm a newbie here *waves nervously* I'm from Scotland and I'm 21! :) Oh and my name's Kat, lol, knew I'd forgotten some kind of important detail... Typical me! I'll keep this more on-topic and ask a few random questions of you nice people :D

For people who have been to the gigs already and bought a T-shirt: what kind of sizes do they do? I'm going in June to Manchester and I really want a T-shirt but I want to get the right size and wondered if anybody had a decent idea. I know that's a bit random but hey. ;)

Oh and for people who have been to the gigs, what time to they come on stage? I think my friends want to go earlyish anyway but we have seats so it doesn't really matter. I'm just curious as to the time-scale and stuff. I'm so excited, never seen them live before!

What's your fave song at the moment? Mine are probably Mysterious Ways and Numb, I just can't stop going back and putting them on again.

I had something else... Oh yeah! Has anyone here got the Passengers album? I've been thinking about getting it because I'm fascinated by the clips of songs I've heard (admittedly not very many or long clips but still) and just wanted to know if it's worth getting. I want something a bit different and I've read good reviews.

Thanks and hope to chat to some people soon!

Kat x

Welcome! You're the same age as me. </random fact>

*quietly plugs u2uk community*

Passengers is certainly worth getting, but don't expect to be blown away by it immediately... it's a bit of an odd collection, I wasn't sure what to make of it at first. Now I find it's perfect for when I'm in a strange mood and don't know what else to listen to. :)  My favourite tracks are Your Blue Room, Slug, Elvis Ate America and Always Forever Now.

Ooh, I shall look at that community as well :)

I've heard Your Blue Room and love it! And I've heard Miss Sarajevo as well and that's ace too. When I get some money I think I'll probably get it! Thanks!

Mmm tshirts! I must get a job just to buy one.

Nice to see a Scottish fan, I've only met two other people at my uni (Glasgow) who like them, and sadly they were rather ned-like; it seems everyone who doesn't like them hates them too :s

I like Passengers, there are some really cool songs, but it's mostly the kind of album I put on when I'm doing something else.

I'm definitely getting a T-shirt and wearing it to uni, haha.

Aww, my friend who's coming with me to the concert is at Glasgow uni too! So there's another one, that's 3 people! Lol. I don't know about people here at mine (I go to Dundee) but my best friend does like them. She gets me to copy their CDs!

Heh. With the T-shirt thing, you just reminded me about this. At a non-U2 gig I was at recently (non-U2... does anyone understand me?) where most of the concert goers were middle-aged men, there was a pikey selling bootleg T-shirts outside, and he yelled "Available in all sizes: XL and XXL."

Wooo, Scottish. I'm part Scottish, and I lived in Clydebank, near Glasgow for 7 years.

Ooh my best mate is from Clydebank! She's the other one I'm going to the gig with (there's 3 of us). That's really funny about the T-shirts, though sometimes you see blokes who would only ever need those sizes in Glasgow ;)

Hi... woop, not long to go until the Manchester shows. Lucky!

I really have nothing to add (haven't seen any shows yet) except to say that my favourite song is always Walk On and you should definitely get Passengers. Don't pay much for it though, 'cause it won't be something you listen to often.

I'm flying from New Zealand to see some of the UK/Ireland shows, by the way. And at one point will be staying on the Isle of Skye which is ridiculously exciting for me... anyway, it's nice to see a non-American posting here. ;)

I know, not long at all and I'm so excited! I have a few concerts before it but that's the biggie!

I love Walk On, it's gorge! :D

Wow, you're coming a long way! My friend came from Australia to see Westlife in Feb so I've heard of people travelling that far before! The Isle of Skye is gorgeous, I've been there a few times when I was younger!

you going to the glasgow show? me too!

they've got t-shirts in all sizes. there are both guys shirts and girls shirts (smaller, some different styles) ranging from S-XL. you'll be able to find something no trouble.

here in the states they come onstage around 8:45-9 but i'm not sure if that would stay the same over there. seems like quite a few things are gonna be different at the stadium gigs.

i know i'm in the minority but i love passengers. but i tend to like that sort of stuff anyway. eno is one of my favourite artists. i guess just be aware that you're not getting a song-based rock n roll album and go into with an open mind, and you'll be grand. you can hear U2 in there. :-)

Did you mean me about the Glasgow show? I'm not going to that one, if you did, I'm going to Manchester because one of my friends who's coming is on holiday when they're playing Glasgow so we're doing Manc instead. I'd rather be doing my home country but I'm not complaining!

Thanks for the info etc. Most artists do come on at that sort of time at the gigs I've been to but I've never been to one this big so I was wondering! I'm only ickle and shy, I'll be swamped by the occasion! Or something. (Don't mind me, I'm odd.)

Thanks for the tip about Passengers as well - I'll definitely get it when I get some money!

ah, ok. i'll be in manchester as well. yay!

i wouldn't know if they would start a bit later to get a bit more darkness, but i'm thinking there's not likely to be any darkness at all no matter what? (odd is good!)

YAY! We're in the tier. Which suits me fine actually cause I'm little and would be squashed otherwise. And we're going to have an ace time!

Nah there'd be no point really cause it's getting dark after 10pm these days so they'd be waiting ages lol! I just really hope it doesn't rain! Not that it'll bother me really but I always get a cold or the flu after gigs or being out in the rain!
