U2360USA Day 17 – road trip part 1 recap

I consider this 17th day of my U2 360 tour across America the end of the first part of my road trip. My mom and aunt left today – they had been with me since the beginning. We had breakfast in our hotel and then went back to the fabulous Grand Sierra Resort to gamble for a couple hours before [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 16 – Reno

While everyone else (well at least a bunch of U2 fans I know) is in Winnipeg for the U2 show tonight, I was losing much money at the slots in Reno. Since I am not doing the Canada shows on the U2 360 tour, I decided to spend  my week between the Salt Lake City and Seattle U2 shows in Reno and [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 15 – Lake Tahoe

We started out our day just like yesterday, with a yummy filling breakfast in our hotel. But that’s where the similarity ended. This 15th day of my U2 360 tour across America brought me, my mom and my aunt through Carson City and into the snow of Lake Tahoe. Our first stop was just about [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 14 – Reno, Nevada

Day 14 of my U2 360 tour across America was a lucky one for me – lucky at the slots that is. I returned to my hotel room this evening with the same amount of money I left with this morning. My mom, my aunt and I started off our day with a yummy, filling breakfast at our hotel restaurant. [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 13 – SLC to Reno

We’re in Reno! It’s not Vegas, but it’s still pretty cool. Las Vegas was too far south to be on the way from the U2 show in Salt Lake City to the U2 show in Seattle. We left Salt Lake City just after 8am this morning, stopped 3 times, and arrived in Reno, Nevada just after 4:30pm. [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 12 – Salt Lake City

Day 12 of my U2 360 tour across America brought me to Temple Square in Salt Lake City today. It was quite beautiful, and luckily beautiful weather as well. We spent time in both visitor centers, saw the Brigham Young statue and the Temple, listened to an Organ recital at the Tabernacle, visited [continue reading]

U2 360 Salt Lake City 5.24.11

The U2 360 show in Salt Lake City was fantastic – better than the opener in Denver, even though I didn’t get any Larry love. The audience at the University of Utah was so much more into the show than the crowd in Denver. The set list was the same except for the addition of Love [continue reading]

U2 360 Denver 5.21.11

U2 360 in Denver was a fantastic show – a great way to open this US leg of the 360 tour. It was a great set list that included Pride, All I Want is You, Stay, Zooropa, Scarlet, Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me and Even Better Than the Real Thing. It was the first time I had heard Zooropa [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 6 – Keystone to Denver

We left Keystone around 8:45am and it was 45 and raining. Within 10 minutes, it was snowing and 32 degrees. It snowed through South Dakota and a little in Wyoming. I never expected it to be literally freezing in mid-May. We were on state roads going through tiny towns for most of our trip, so we [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 5 – Deadwood and Sturgis

Day 5 of my U2 360 tour across America took me to Deadwood and Sturgis, which are only about a 30 minute drive from where we are staying in Keystone. This was the second day that Elvis and Cilla stayed at the hotel alone while we went sight seeing, and they did so well – no barking! This is [continue reading]

U2360 Day 4 – Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse

The four faces of U2 met the four faces of Mount Rushmore today when I wore my I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight shirt. A Steelers fan at Mount Rushmore told me he took a double take when looking at my shirt because he thought it was Mount Rushmore. I then decided I had to get [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 3 – Omaha to Keystone

Day 3 of my U2 360 Tour across America was all about driving, so no pizza or food report today. We left Omaha, Nebraska this morning at 8am central standard time and after 3 stops and 548 miles arrived in Keystone, South Dakota at 5:30pm mountain standard time. We stopped at a Subway and gas [continue reading]

Day 2 of my U2360USA tour brought us to Omaha, Nebraska today. We left Kansas City, Missouri at 6:30 this morning, drove 200 miles, and arrived at our hotel in Omaha at 9:30am. Just a few miles past our hotel, we passed the Kansas City Royals’ Kauffman Stadium and the Kansas City [continue reading]

U2360USA Day 1 – Memphis to KC

I’m finally on my U2 360 Tour road trip across America that I have been planning for over a year! I’m sitting in my hotel room in Independence, Missouri right outside Kansas City with my 2 dogs Elvis and Cilla. Elvis is a little anxious as usual, and Cilla is relaxed as usual. [continue reading]
