Hello Hello!!

Hello all. I joined this community a while ago, but never got around to introducing myself.

I'm Sara, and I live south of Boston. And I'm sure I could go on and on and say how I've loved U2 ever since I was a little kid. But really, I've grown up with U2. Even though I listen to lots of indie rock and Britpop otherwise (Radiohead, Ryan Adams and Whiskeytown, White Stripes, Travis, Sloan, Blur), U2 remains the one band I truly love. I've seen five U2 concerts (which pales in comparison to many of you, I'm sure): one ZooTV concert in Chicago (when I was only seven, imagine that! I still remember it, though.), one PopMart concert (in Foxboro), and three Elevation concerts (Boston, June 9; New York, June 17; and Providence, October 31). The Elevation concerts, were some of the best nights of my life (which I am sure we can all agree with). June 9 in Boston was especially memorable, as I stood right near the tip of the heart, and Bono took a swig from my water bottle.

So yeah, that's about it. I'm glad to be part of such a dedicated community of U2 fans.

Hi there. I grew up with U2 as well. Its funny. They along with REM were the only two bands my parents and I could agree on ;-). They liked for us to listen to U2 b/c they sensed a lot of religious meaning in their music and felt it was a good influence. I missed those early days though. I'm only 22 and what I would give to have seen ZooTV and PopMart but I was too young and too broke in that order! You're very lucky to have seen them at 7. What do you remember exactly?

hi. im new here as well, and have been looking for a chance to introduce myself. im mike, from nj. the way i describe my affection for the band, is usually "u2 is the only band that matters to me". and that pretty much sums it up! (i think i stole it from bono describing the beatles or somebody). i attended 2 elevation shows, (nj: june 21, and ny: oct 24) and they were 2 of the best nights of my life. i got into u2 when a friend sent me a u2 mix tape, and i couldn't believe that one band ahd created all these songs that i had heard growing up, but never knew who had sung them. its been nonstop u2 since then.
