Hello Hello!!

I'm currently hearin: U2 - If God will Send his Angels

Just a random thought.... I was reading a small article on violence and television and they quoted a mother as saying she would rather have her kids watching cartoons than violent programs and the news. That of course got me thinking in U2-ism mode. :)

"And the cartoon network turns into the news"

Tsk tsk.


Dammit when they going on tour again, I'm getting bored with this daily life. On that note also anyone made any plans for the next tour? After my own personal drama on the last tour (hint: quit my job to get the vacation pay, among other things) I've been making dramatic plans to make sure i see every moment of the Amazing Irish Four. I'm pretty sure they're going to play at Phillips Arena here in Atlanta as they've done so the past tour. It's a perfect venue and all but I wish they'd play for more than one night. Maybe 6 or 7, then they can have a night off ;-)

Im interested in hearing about any plans anybody might have? Any ideas or thoughts etc. I'm going to try desparately to get a U2 Atlanta meetup or something as the new album is released and the tour draws closer. Anywhos off I go to work!

i have no plans, other than being there!

i only know 2 or 3 people that even like u2, and i dont see them so much anymore, so ill either have to drag along my girlfriend, take my younger brother who is a big fan, or go alone. I'm thinking the latter option.
But im lucky, i get 28 days paid holiday at my current job, so getting the time off should be easy :)

I cannot wait

I need to get a job first. But I know my Mum'd pay for me to go to at least one show because she's already promised that, so I'm safe there. I'm planning to follow them around Australia - I'll definitely be at Brisbane, I'll probably travel down to Sydney and Melbourne, and I may just know someone who can get me really good tickets to Perth (they got one of my mother's friends right up the front for Lovetown, so hopefully they can do the same for me this time). I'm hoping they'll play the Gold Coast, but that's a vain hope: we have no real venue besides Carrara Stadium, which is the joke of the city.

If U2 goes to New Zealand, I'll definitely be at all those shows. I've got family over there, and a U2 tour would make a return visit most bearable.

Of course, now I need the money for all this ... I'll work out something, I hope.

Ahhh the land of Aussie. I have a good friend in Perth. I need to visit someday.

I have a vague idea how I will be getting tickets. If they go on sale early on the Internet, I will just stay up all night until they officially go on sale and hope for the best. If I have to actually go to the location to buy the tickets, it won't be a problem. This is my fifth year at my current job so I get 3 weeks vacation time plus 8 personal days. I'll just take a day or three off and camp out at the ticket line.

As for the cash, hopefully it won't be hard to come up with it. And there are always paycheck advance places to go to if necessary. :>

I have never seen U2 in concert before (actually, I've only seen Weird Al, REM, and Bela Fleck in concert). It will happen this time. I'll do whatever I must to make sure my wife and I see them this year. And since we live halfway between Philadelphia and New York City, and 4 hours from Albany, Boston, Baltimore, and DC, I'm sure I will be able to find a concert location near us. I'd prefer Philly and I could deal with New York City or Albany. Boston, Baltimore, or DC would be pushing it, but I am a desperate man. :)

bah Ive only seen 6 concerts my entire life and four of those were U2 :)

I was born and raised in Alabama, but I don't believe they've ever done a show there, really. But yeah, if I'm home when they're in Atlanta for a gig, my cousin, uncle, and I might come to see it.

I saw them in D.C. on the last tour. I spazzed out and forgot tickets were on sale until they were all gone, so I ended up paying a scalper. Which I NEVER do.

It was totally worth it.

simu2fan and I are planning to be in Germany in mid June so it goes without saying, I'm also planning to be in Los Angeles & Chicago. In 2001 in went to Chicago on the 15th & 16th of October and had a great time, lots of Bostonians, NYers, Alabama, Colorado, I think the fact that it's a relatively short flight from anywhere had alot to do with that.

I can't wait. I was left broken-hearted when they didn't bring the Elevation tour to Australia because that would have been the first time I would have been able to see them.

If they don't tour here this time I will hunt Bono down and yell at him. :)
