U2 bootleg @ 12:42 pm

I'm currently feelin: hopeful hopeful
I'm currently hearin: Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2

Greetings, fellow U2 fans; lurker here, posting for the first time. I grew up listening to U2, but I didn't become a real fan until I saw them for the first time in concert, December 14th, in St Louis.
Generally, I consider myself a hard-core Bowie fangirl, and when I saw him on the Reality tour I figured that I'd never see another concert top his. But I was mistaken: Bono's ability to connect with the crowd was something I hadn't seen before in Bowie. And, as a Christian, Bono's zealous spirituality appeals to me in a way that none of Bowie's fantastic costuming and eloquently wordy lyrics do.
Now, since the Vertigo concert, I've been fanatically acquiring anything and everything U2 I can lay hands on (buttons, programs, magazines, books, DVDs, and, of course, the few albums I didn't already have, most at discount prices) and wondering why I ever even considered reselling Joshua Tree. And I have also experienced some frustration regarding a particular aquisition, which is, namely, a bootleg of my St Louis concert.

I've been busy trying to find the show online. I had a couple of false starts (U2Live2U has some really good boots, but not the one I want) before finding it. But unfortunately... I am on dialup, and my poor computer just couldn't handle a 185MB download.

So, I am pleading from the bottom of my U2-enraptured heart for someone to lend me a hand. If anyone would be willing to download and burn the concert to CD and send it to me via snail mail, I would be more than willing to pay for supplies, labor, and shipping and handling. If you're interested, please leave a comment here or on my journal, and know that you will be making a new fan very, very happy!!

HI! YES! Mutual Bowielove! Who's your favorite persona? I'm rather fond of TJ Newton and the Thin White Duke, myself....

Hey there! I saw them in St. Louis for the first time too - I was on the outside of the ellipse along the rail on Edge's side - amazing seeing everyone so close for the very first time - anyway, I took some video snippets of the concert and I might be able to send you a couple if you're interested. It's amazing being able to relive it through the videos!

YOU GOT GOOD SEATS. HOW DID YOU GET GOOD SEATS? We were way in the back, like twenty-five rows up off the ground floor... No chance of getting good pics from there. Thank God for vid screens.

Re: snippets: if they aren't too big, I'd love to see them. I got snippets from my Bowie concert, and though the picture's not too good, the sound's awesome... 9_9;
