Do you have any U2 regrets? I mean, something you really really regret now that could have happened. Not all of the little ones but a few major ones?

My regrets are:

- first year uni, U2 comes to Sydney....but I am stuck doing my practical experience, and to get to either the Friday or the Saturday concert I'd have had to not go the Friday, or leave half way through the day. I'd finished up all my requirements three weeks into the four weeks practical experience, and I asked my uni supervisor ever so nicely if I could finish up a half day early, so I could go to Sydney, but no. I was devastated. Especially as someone had just found me an awesome ticket. I was a "good girl" back then, didn't chuck sickies and so on. In retrospect I am thinking I should have done so. Should have not said a word and just called in sick that Friday morning. And actually made it to Zoo TV.

- a few years back I remember seeing some U2 vinyl for sale in the cd shop. I can't recall exactly what, but I am thinking it was POP or something from that era, and was contemplating buying it. But never did. Now my current U2 hobby is collecting it all on vinyl I am kicking myself ever so hard.

- some of you know I went off to the UK to see U2 last year. I had tickets for 5 concerts plus Slane. I was going to the first two London concerts, and when all those extra tickets became available, I had standing tickets up on the ticketmaster site, ready to buy, for the night of the 22nd. I uhm'd and ah'd and thought "nah, better not, by then I'll probably be at the end of my U2 tolerance level..." WRONG! Am so wishing now that I had bought tix for that concert when they were available. gggrrrr!

Losing you and Asher at Slane when I became closterphobic. I should have taken two seconds to tell you I needed out so we could leave together. I still feel so bad about that.

awwwwwwww! thats ok....if hte crowd hadn't been so insanely mad there wouldn't have been a problem....it was just amazing the way I followed you directly, and lost you instantaneously, and Asher followed me right away but lost me as well. We weren't that far behind each other but managed to all end up on our own. Mad!

yes i do....

ok POPMART dates are announced...

theyre playing Dallas on may 12...
but not playing houston until november 28....(i live in houston)

my friend decides to go to a scalper for 2nd row tix for the houston show....the price is $540...we agree

having to pay that much for a good seat, i choose to not go to dallas to make our show more special...but i slowly decided that having to wait 8 months from the time tix go on sale to them playing here, i figure itll be allright to hit dallas..

now, plans have already been set to go to dallas to meet some family members one day after the u2 concert....so i figure i can go to dallas one day early to see popmart and then meet family the next night...

then i realize the dallas show is on my moms birthday...
i toy with the idea of going, but cannot make myself go.....we go to dinner instead, im pretty much bored the entire time, mom enjoys an extra glass of wine, and i still believe that she doesnt remember what happened that night....(if i did go she would have remembered that...im sure she would have been mad for a few days, but would have got over it)..

i thought i made the right decision by not going. but after finally seeeing them in november...i was convinced that i should have gone...
oh well...

My biggest regret is not realizing in time how great GA was and I only went to 3 out of the 8 Elevation concerts I went to last year. Which really isn't that bad, but I *love* GA. Oh, here is another GA regret: I wish I would have shot for the tip :( I camped out early enough 2 out of 3 times that I could have gotten a fabulous spot for the tip, but I'm a scaredy cat and I didn't want to be squished like you are on the floor. :P I'm so dumb sometimes. But I did get absolutely fantastic spots at the tip twice, however, which makes me feel better. :D

I suppose it isn't really a regret, because there was nothing I could have done about it, but here's the story anyway.

I had been to the Milwaukee show last May, and I got all excited when they announced the third leg. So I tried so hard to get tickets for the Chicago show in October. Failed. Then they scheduled another show in Chicago because the demand was so great. So I managed to get tickets for the second show. Ticketbastard told me they were GA tickets, on the floor and everything, so my mom and a friend of mine and I sat out in the freaking freezing Chicago wind all day, to find that no, the tickets we had were not on the floor. They were up in the nosebleed section, practically behind the stage. If we'd had tickets on the floor, we would have gotten into the heart. So I really regret that, even though it was Ticketbastard's fault, and not mine. ::sigh::

I was on the floor in Milwaukee (not in the heart though), so that was cool.
