I hope I can get a cheap ticket. I don't care about any other concerts this year. I just want to see them.

1. I saw them ...
In 85 on the Unforgettable Fire Tour (at the Hollywood, Fl. Sportatorium);
in 88 on the Joshua Tree Tour (at Tampa Stadium)
and in 92 on the Achtung Baby Tou (again in Tampa)

Haven't seen them lately but they were great each time. While the 85 show (when I was in the third row) was great -- I still have Bono's oxygen mask from that show -- the 92 show was the best-staged rock show I've ever seen.

2. Don't sweat it. They're just like they are on the iPod commercial.

3. I saw them...
In a small theatre in Buffalo in 1983
On the Unforgettable Fire Tour in 1985
Joshua Tree tour in 1987 in Philly at JFK Statium
In 1997 on the Pop Mart tour.

The Joshua Tree show in Philadelphia in 1987 is still one of the most amazing concerts I have ever seen. It was unbelievable the amount of energy in the air. Go see them -- you won't be disappointed.

6. I saw the elevation tour in Atlanta
I really hope they come to Atlanta or even Charlotte, NC this time. U2 is and always will be my favorite band.

8. I won free tickets to see them on the popmart tour
that kicked ass. It was my first big rock concert.
But this year I'm more excited about finally going to bonnaroo.
