About Deena 'DeenasDays' Dietrich (276 Articles)
My name is Deena Dietrich. After 3 years living in Memphis and 3 months driving across America following the U2 360 Tour in 2011, I am back home in Ellicott City, Maryland with my 2 dogs Elvis and Cilla. Now I am making my way as a Social Media Manager and Blogger as I try to get my book about my U2 travels published. My motto is "It is better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't." So follow me on my journey as I pursue my passions in music and sports: U2, Broncos, LMP, Grizzlies, NKOTB, Orioles.

U2 “Songs of Innocence”

Larry is the only band member on the cover of U2’s new album, and his tatoo is prominently featured. A rendering of his tatoo is on the cd and the record. The Larry Mullen Band indeed! Actually, it is Larry and his son Aaron Elvis (who now just goes by Elvis which is so fantastic!) are on the [continue reading]

Happy 30th Unforgettable Fire

30 years ago today U2’s fourth full album The Unforgettable Fire was released. Larry described UF as, “‘Bringing light, shade & experimentation to the music.” I couldn’t agree more. I have always loved UF. Tracks “Pride,” “Bad” and [continue reading]

Tampa Popmart – my U2 Concert A to Z

The U2 concert in Tampa, Florida on November 10, 1997 at Houlihans Stadium was my favorite of the Popmart tour, and my favorite ‘T’ U2 concert overall. It was at this show that my Larry (wait for it) was almost replaced by Bono in my heart – I said almost. I traveled to Florida [continue reading]

St. Louis 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

The U2 360 show in St. Louis was amazing! Definitely one of my favorites, along with Anaheim2 and Chicago. Even though it was a standard set list and there was no “Out of Control” or “One Tree Hill,” the band and the audience had such a great energy. Bono was especially [continue reading]

Raleigh 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

The U2 360 show at Carter-Finley Stadium (on the campus of NC State) on October 3, 2009 is my choice for my favorite ‘R’ U2 concert, mainly because it was my birthday show (technically it was the night before my birthday). This is what I wrote that night, We arrived at the stadium just [continue reading]

Pittsburgh 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

The U2 360 show in Pittsburgh on July 26, 2011 is one of my favorite concerts. It was my final U2 360 show, my 16th of that leg of the tour, my 24th of the 360 tour and my 75th U2 show overall. This last U.S. show ended on amazing high note, more than I could have hoped for, more than I imagined [continue reading]

Oakland 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

The U2 360 show in Oakland, California at McAfee Coliseum on June 7, 2011 was an easy pick for my favorite ‘O’ U2 concert. But not because it was an amazing concert. It wasn’t. It had the same set list as the previous three shows. What made Oakland one of my favorite U2 360 shows [continue reading]

Nashville 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

The U2 360 show in Nashville was fantastic, which was a nice reward for the long trafficy 16-hour drive I had from Miami the day before the show. It was the 50th day on my U2 360 across America tour, my 10th show that leg of the tour, my 69th U2 show overall and the 100th show of the entire 360 [continue reading]

Miami Elevation – my U2 Concerts A to Z

I went to the first show and the final show of the Elevation Tour. It is the only time I have ever done this, part of the reason the Elevation Tour will always be so very special to me. The final show of the Elevation Tour at the American Airlines Arena in Miami on December 2, 2001 was just [continue reading]
