wooooooooooow! you went to oxegen??? i was in dublin for most of july, but i didn't get my hands on any tix. that mustve been incredible, my friends were telling me how great of a time it is.

i surprisingly heard quite a bit of u2 while i was there, on the radio, in the pubs, and even when catching some live music. this one guy in particular was performing at porterhouse, and played 2 u2 covers...both times i was in the toilet and had to rush back upstairs.

i felt that u2 was quite well received there. the only negative thing i heard was my neighbors (i was living in ballymun) saying they don't like it when the press says that bono was from ballymun, because he wasn't. he grew up NEAR ballymun, but not quite ballymun. that was it.

it certainly doesn't seem like they are put on the same pedestals that i put them on though, perhaps that is what bono was addressing about celebrity in the 60 minutes spot. thats why you can take a train ride to killiney, pass by his house, edge's, enya's, all in a days visit, and not be stopped, questioned, or searched by police. fans certainly couldn't get away with that here in the united states.

i found it rather amusing that loads of people i met claimed they lived next to bono. they could be in any part of the city, it didn't matter...but when i was asking to get an idea of where they lived, they always started out "oh, i live near bono!" so perhaps he isn't as much of a celebrity as he is a point of reference? ;-)
