Jersey1 Elevation – my U2 Concerts A to Z

The first show in New Jersey on Elevation was one of my favorites of the tour. It was at that concert I had my first encounter with Larry Mullen Jr. I would have two more great encounters with Larry on the Elevation tour, but you always remember your first. I can’t really remember the actual [continue reading]

My Favorite U2 Songs

The other day I ranked every U2 album by ranking each song. Even though I ranked each song, that was more about ranking each U2 album. Now I want to share my favorite three songs off each album. This time I am including the b-sides because they are some of my favorites. THE JOSHUA TREE – I [continue reading]

My Favorite U2 Albums

The other day I saw a tweet by U2Start.com about ranking every U2 album by ranking every U2 song. I thought it might be fun and wanted to share my results. First I want to rank every U2 album in the order of which I like them and then see if the math supports it after I rank each song from each [continue reading]

ZooTv – my U2 A to Z

The ZooTv Tour was my first U2 tour. U2 announced they would be touring America in the Spring of 1992, in support of their Achtung Baby album. I was a sophomore in college, so I could now go to concerts! I had a subscription to Propaganda, U2’s fan magazine, which gave me an opportunity to [continue reading]

PopMart – my U2 A to Z

Pop was released in March of 1997. I remember seeing the video for “Discotheque” and loving it because U2 was dressed like The Village People. A lot of people criticized Pop for being too techno and not enough of like U2, but I really liked it. The lyrics were just as strong as always. [continue reading]

Larry Mullen Jr – my U2 A to Z

I love Larry Mullen Jr, U2’s drummer. He is my favorite drummer, and my second favorite man – a close second behind Elvis. And ironically Larry is a huge Elvis fan and even named his son Aaron Elvis. I have been a U2 fan for 25 years. I was a freshman in high school when The Joshua [continue reading]

Joshua Tree – my U2 A to Z

26 years ago U2′s The Joshua Tree, my favorite album, was released. It was March 9, 1987, and I was a freshman in high school. I heard With or Without You and liked it.

R is for Red Hill Mining Town

My favorite U2 song that begins with R is Red Hill Mining Town. It used to be my second favorite U2 song, but over the past 25 years others have pushed it down a few spots. It is off of my favorite album The Joshua Tree. I love Red Hill Mining Town because it is one of the most passionate songs I [continue reading]

My favorite U2 song that begins with L is Luminous Times. It is one of my top five U2 songs, actually it is second behind I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For. Luminous Times, a b-side off The Joshua Tree, is the song that gives me chills every time I hear it, even though I have [continue reading]

Larry Sings in Oakland! U2 360 6.7.11

The U2 360 show in Oakland had the same set list as the previous three shows in the US, but was a little different. First, the baseball infield was fenced off, so the GA area was smaller – as was the inner circle behind the stage. Second, there were two opening bands, so U2 didn’t come on until [continue reading]
