Does anyone know if the Rosemont Horizon is the same venue as the United Center? I have the show from Rosemont on April 29, 1987 and was just curious if it was the same building.

I love snow days. As an offering to the gods for this blessing, I have uploaded three early videos to YSI. If they run out, please someone do the courtesy of reposting them! Thanks!

Question re: Portland show

Anyone here who attended one of the Elevation shows with a GA ticket? My real question revolves around the venue's policy regarding standing/holding a place in line. My husband and I have GA tickets, and are wondering whether we should plan on being there all day or if we can plan to go down dark and early that morning to get our "you are here bracelets", then re-take our places in line later that night.

We've got daycare issues, alas, so need to make some plans in advance.

And yes, we are tres excited. I'm almost over the sadness of giving away giving away our Vegas tickets for last month thanks to the the anticipation ;).

Cleveland Trade

I've got one ticket for section 216 at tomorrow's Cleveland show, and I'm looking to trade it for a GA ticket, obviously trading at the venue. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D

U2 LJ Community Awards 2005: nominations

Your attention please, u2 members...

Around the turn of the century we used to have an annual awards ceremony thing over at the AFU2/AMU2 newsgroups, which was a lot of fun. The NG members would nominate in a bunch of categories, then there'd be a private vote and one member would post the final results. This year, I thought I'd try a similar idea here!

Below the cut are lots of categories - some of these are pinched from the old NG awards, some are new. In the comments for this post, I want you all to NOMINATE under as many of these categories as you like. Rules:
  • You don't have to nominate in every category if you don't want to.
  • You can submit multiple nominations for any category.
  • You're not allowed to nominate yourself.
  • Please try to give a brief reason for each nomination you submit, to help me out with explaining the eventual winners!
I will be screening all the comments for this post, so your nominations will be totally confidential.

Once nominations have finished, I'll do another post with the shortlists so you can choose your winners. If there are millions of nominations for a particular category, I'll narrow it down to the ones that received the MOST nominations. Final results will be posted at the end of the year.

If any of this makes no sense, let me know and I'll try and post more coherently!

Now get nominating....

The provisional deadline for nominations is Friday 16th December, although I might extend it by a couple of days depending on my schedule. So if you want a chance to vote for your favourites, make sure you get your nominations in by the end of next week!
