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]

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]

East Lansing 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

I chose the 360 show in East Lansing, Michigan on June 26. 2011 as my ‘E’ U2 concert, not because it is one of my favorites but because it was unique. This was the only 360 show I attended where U2 entered through the stands. This was the only U2 show I have ever been to in the [continue reading]

Denver 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

My favorite U2 concert that begins with ‘D’ is Denver 360 on May 21, 2011. This show is not one of my favorite U2 shows ever, but it is certainly my favorite ‘D’ concert and had some notable moments for sure. Denver is where U2 opened its last leg of the 360 Tour, so that in [continue reading]

Chicago 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

My favorite U2 concert that begins with C is Chicago 360 on July 5, 2011. This was my 70th U2 show since 1992, and it was amazing! U2 played “Out of Control,” which had not been played in the U.S. on the 360 tour! I like “Out of Control” so much better than “I Will [continue reading]

Anaheim2 360 – my U2 Concerts A to Z

Of the 75 U2 concerts I’ve seen since I started my musical journey in 1992 on the ZooTv Tour, my favorite that begins with ‘A’ is Anaheim2 on June 18, 2011 on the 360 Tour. Anaheim was the only city in the U.S. where U2 played back-to-back shows on that final leg of the 360 tour.

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 [continue reading]

Three-Sixty (360) Tour – my U2 A to Z

I really don’t think I can fit everything about U2’s 360 Tour into one blog post. It changed my life, literally. I saw 8 shows on the first US leg in 2009 and all 16 shows on the second US leg in 2011. The 2009 US leg of the 360 tour was what I normally did on U2 tours – saw as [continue reading]

DAY 22 – JUNE 4 – U2 360 #3 – Qwest Field SEATTLE The U2 360 show in Seattle was better than the previous two shows I had been to in Denver and Salt Lake City.

No Line on the Horizon – my U2 A to Z

No Line on the Horizon was released in February 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 [continue reading]
