360 2010 Postponed

The road trip for the U2 360 Tour in the US that I am going to take this summer was supposed to happen last summer but was postponed. Here is what I wrote about it last year: May 21, 2010 So after 5 more hours last night of tweaking my 2 month cross country road trip,…

360 2009 recap

Reflecting on the U2 360 2009 Tour a year and a half later, I still like the Las Vegas show the best and DC, Oklahoma, Chicago1 are close seconds. The other 4 are probably in the order of Raleigh, Charlottesville, Chicago2, then Atlanta being my least favorite. For me how I rank a U2 show…

360 in Las Vegas 2009

Friday October 23, 2009 – U2 Las Vegas I flew into Vegas around 10am (cst), waited an hour to get my rental car and got to the hotel around 12:30 (pst). Tasha and I had lunch at the Red Rocks casino buffet where we were staying, and we were at Sam Boyd Stadium at the…

360 in Oklahoma 2009

360 in Atlanta 2009

Monday October 5, 2009 I’m in Atlanta. Left Vicki’s around 6:30am and got here around 1pm. I could barely walk when I got out of the car because my knees are so stiff and sore. My hotel is right downtown close to everything and a nice room with a king bed, fridge and microwave. I…

360 Tour 2009

No Line on the Horizon was released in March 2009, and I immediately fell in love it with as I had with All That You Can’t Leave Behind. U2 promoted their new release with five consecutive nights on the David Letterman Show and a mini concert and interview at Fordham University broadcasted on Good Morning…

U23D 2008

On January 23, 2008 Tasha and I went to the first showing of U23D in Baltimore at the Imax Theatre. It was amazing. Just like being at the U2 show. Tasha and I were screaming as if we were at the concert. It’s ironic because I wasn’t that excited during the Vertigo tour, but I…
