Achtung, Babies

Hey guys!  I just got back from my little trip to Berlin - thank you so much to everyone here who recommended stuff to me!  We had a great time and managed to pack loads in, both U2-related sights and general touristy things. Even saw some Trabbies! :D
I'll do a proper report and upload photos as soon as I have the time and energy.
Our timing was lousy, though... not only did the baby polar bear make its first public appearance the day *after* we visited the zoo, but I've just read on that Bono is going to be in Berlin tomorrow / later today!!! *dies*

Footage from the Vertigo Tour.

I don't know if this has been posted here before, as it's almost 2 years old now, but well, even if it has, oh well. Anyway, on July 31st, 2005, an episode of the TV show "Entourage" (an episode entitled, "I Love You Too," which I find pun-believable) revolved around one character's desire to attend a U2 concert on his birthday. At the end of the episode, he gets to go, and Bono tells him happy birthday in Spanish. The show features footage from an actual U2 concert that the band allowed the show to film and attend, and it's all real. Bono really wished the fictional character a happy birthday during the band's performance. They play "City of Blinding Lights," and then "Vertigo." (Sadly, it cuts to the credits before they can get very far into Vertigo, but the audio continues playing over that, so it's worth it, I think). It really gave me a new love for "City of Blinding Lights." Since it's actual concert footage, I thought maybe people might be interested in seeing it, so I uploaded just the concert footage part to YouTube here. The entire episode revolves around the band, though (the character carries an Irish flag the entire episode and insists that when it comes to U2 concerts, his motto is "floor seats or bust!", and several of their songs are on the soundtrack for the episode and play in the background), so if anyone wants the entire episode, I can upload that for you, too. I just figured people might enjoy seeing this bit of concert footage from the Vertigo Tour. :)
