U2ieTour NYC1&2 July 18-19, 2015

What made the first two U2ieTour shows in New York City at Madison Square Garden on July 18 and 19 especially fantastic was that I was not expecting anything – I had no plans to meet the band or wait in the GA line. I had already had so many great experiences on this tour that I had no goals [continue reading]

The fourth ie show in Chicago (my 83rd overall) saw the debut of “The Crystal Ballroom” – finally! Chicago4 was also the first show on the ie tour that did not have a fan on stage filming on Meerkat – and Bono did not pull anyone up during “Mysterious Ways.” I [continue reading]

U2ieTour Chicago3 – June 28, 2015

I was right each Chicago show is better than the last! Last night’s third ie show in Chicago, my 82nd overall, was magnificent! U2 played “Gloria,” Lucifer’s Hands,” “All I want is You,” and Bono sang the “I Did” in response to “Did you [continue reading]

U2ieTour Chicago2 – June 25, 2015

The second show in Chicago was better than the first, even without my favorite “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” I have a feeling each show is going to be better than the last, making Chicago5 next week an epic show! The day started off great when I met Larry! [continue reading]

U2ieTour Denver June 5-8, 2015

The U2ieTour shows in Denver were the last added. I sold two of my NYC shows, so I could go to Denver. One, because it was a weekend. Two, because I am a Broncos fan and like going to Denver. Three, because I wanted to see U2 in a different city. And four, because I knew these shows in Denver would [continue reading]

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]

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]

The ELEVATION Tour is officially a teenager

Thirteen years ago today I was in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for the start of U2’s Elevation Tour.
