U2 Offers Refunds for Online Ticket Snafu
Mon Feb 7, 8:14 AM ET Entertainment - AP Music

U2 drummer Larry Mullen is hoping that American fans will forgive them for the snafu in ticket sales.

Mullen has posted an open letter on the band's Web site offering refunds to members of U2's subscription service. Members were supposed to get first crack at tickets for U2's upcoming tour but that did not work as planned.

"The idea that our long-time U2 fans and scalpers competed for U2 tickets through our own Web site is appalling to me," he writes along with an apology.

Mullen also adds, "By the way, a note to those so-called U2 fans who are quick to accuse U2 of unseemly behavior, I've only got two words for you." The letter ends there.

Hello, my lovelies...

I've been thinking a lot about the Boston show I'll be going to, and I've always gotten mixed responses about this topic, so I thought I'd ask you guys and see what you all think (because we all know that nothing matters more than the opinion of U2 fans, hehe).

So, what do we think:

U2 Retrospective

I've been working on a U2 Retrospective recently. I want to thank everyone who participated in my poll; it helped a lot to have your imput. :)

Anyway, I have enough songs for 4 full CDs, with a little room left over on the first and last albums. Tell me if you think I'm missing anything.

I'm not sure on the order of the songs yet, but that's what I want to put on them. I might add some more, but the 2nd and 3rd CDs are pretty much stuffed to compacity. But, at least to me, those are the best of the best and the most essential U2 tracks. And I'd like everyone to note how "Discothèque" is conspicuously missing. 0:)

Anyway, I'd like your feedback (heh...Feedback...I'm such a dork). What do my fellow U2 fans think?

My most amazing religion professor gave me the greatest minute of my entire academic career today:

"You know, U2 is one of the most subtly religious bands out there. Many people do not recognize the hidden religious references in their songs. Take a great song like 40, which refers to Psalm 40. Until The End Of The World is about Judas betraying Jesus. Their latest album has a song called Yahweh. It's about God. You have the lyrics, Take these shoes, Take these hands, Take this mouth... it's about God.. Yahweh! Something else people might not notice is that the last song on each of their albums contains a religious reference. Take their last album, the song Grace. Many people think it's about a girl named Grace... but it isn't! I like U2."

Newbie

Hi all, new member here. I was listening to The Joshua Tree and was inspired to go find a U2 community. This looks like a great one!

I'm anxiously awaiting the announcement of a 3rd leg of the tour -- I'm currently living in Windsor, ON, and I'm hoping to catch one of their shows (I've never seen them -- I grew up in Newfoundland; no one plays there). I have options, since I can get to either Toronto or Detroit quite easily -- here's to hoping!

Anyway, nice to meet you all. Looking forward to some interesting posts/discussions/ announcements/links/etc!
