U2eiTour in Nashville May 26, 2018

This was the most relaxed I had ever been the day of a U2 show. After touring the Country Music Hall of Fame and RCA Studio B and eating lunch in Nashville, Sharon and I were back in our room by 1pm to rest up before the U2 show. It started pouring rain and when it died down, Sharon decided to walk [continue reading]

U2 The Joshua Tree Tour Louisville 6.16.17

The show in Louisville was my halfway point of this leg of the tour, my 5th show of this 30th Anniversary Joshua Tree tour and my 95th U2 show overall. It was a great show, but not my favorite of the tour that I had predicted back in May. Even though it was the 16th of June and the lyrics to [continue reading]

U2 The Joshua Tree Tour Chicago2 6.4.17

While the first Joshua Tree show in Chicago was intense and exciting as it was my first of the tour, the second show was more relaxed and fun.

Happy 30th Joshua Tree

It was 30 years ago today, March 9, 1987, U2 released my favorite, and in my opinion, their best album THE JOSHUA TREE. It is truly a part of me. It is ingrained in me. Its songs are second nature to me. The Joshua Tree is like being home. The Joshua Tree is the album that got me into U2 at age [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]
