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 excited. “The Fly” returned after its…

U2 BROTHR, a great guy and now a great documentary

Do you know Mark Baker? Maybe you know him as U2 BROTHR? How about that guy at the U2 show in the GA line and on the front rail at the stage in the mirrorball hardhat wearing his ‘U2BROTHR’ license plate? Yes, that’s Mark Barker, aka U2BROTHR, aka Mirroball Man (at least that’s what I…

Unforgettable Fire – my U2 A to Z

Technically it’s The Unforgettable Fire, but I always refer to it as Unforgettable Fire – and for the rest of this post I’ll just use UF. UF  has always been one of my favorite U2 songs. It is also one of my favorite U2 albums, and it is a great video. I love when Larry looks up and flashes…

No Line on the Horizon – my U2 A to Z

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 America. My…

Memphis Mullen – my U2 A to Z

I don’t remember if it was when I moved to Memphis or right before the U2 360 Tour that I changed my social media name to Memphis Mullen. I do remember that it was my friend Jenny who gave me that name. I changed my email and twitter name to Memphis Mullen, as well as…

Get on Your Boots – my U2 A to Z

I love the song Get on Your Boots off No Line on the Horizon specifically for the line “Let me in the sound.” It summarized my entire three-month road trip on the U2 360 tour in 2011. It was sort of my anthem as I traveled across the country driving to all 16 US U2 360 shows. I coupled…
