360 Tour

U2360USA Day 6 – Keystone to Denver

We left Keystone around 8:45am and it was 45 and raining. Within 10 minutes, it was snowing and 32 degrees. It snowed through South Dakota and a little in Wyoming. I never expected it to be literally freezing in mid-May. We were on state roads going through tiny towns for most of our trip, so we [continue reading]

U2360 Day 4 – Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse

The four faces of U2 met the four faces of Mount Rushmore today when I wore my I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight shirt. A Steelers fan at Mount Rushmore told me he took a double take when looking at my shirt because he thought it was Mount Rushmore. I then decided I had to get [continue reading]

360 2009 recap

Reflecting on the U2 360 2009 Tour a year and a half later, I still like the Las Vegas show the best and DC, Oklahoma, Chicago1 are close seconds. The other 4 are probably in the order of Raleigh, Charlottesville, Chicago2, then Atlanta being my least favorite. For me how I rank a U2 show is more [continue reading]

I realize it is July 13th, which is the 25th anniversary of the Live Aid concert, which pretty much made U2. I get an email saying the Chicago U2 concert has been rescheduled for July 5, 2011.

On the Road

I woke up at 7am and immediately checked for news of Bono and the upcoming U2 tour. After 3 long days of waiting for any kind of news, I was inundated. Bono’s condition was more serious than I had thought. Thankfully though, he is going to be alright after at least 8 weeks of rehabilitation. [continue reading]

Today was a blur. I sat at my desk at my laptop at 9am and didn’t get up until 5pm. For 8 hours straight, I was organizing my roadtrip for the u2 tour this summer. Then I came back to tweak my plan for another 2 hours. I had already planned a roadtrip to include 9 shows, but I thought why [continue reading]
