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]

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]
