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]

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]

Baltimore Elevation – my U2 concerts A to Z

My favorite U2 concert that begins with B is without a doubt Baltimore Elevation on October 19, 2001. It is probably one of my top ten favorite concerts ever. The Baltimore show was my hometown show, which is always special, and it was my first Elevation show that leg of the tour. The concert was [continue reading]

The ELEVATION Tour is officially a teenager

Thirteen years ago today I was in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for the start of U2’s Elevation Tour. Although I knew this show was going to be special because I had never been to the very first show of a U2 tour before, I had no idea I was about to embark on the greatest musical journey of my [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]

Storm, Electrical – my U2 A to Z

Sorry, but I had to fudge this one a bit. I really wanted to include Electrical Storm video in ‘My U2 A to Z’ and I couldn’t leave out the Elevation Tour, so here you have it Storm, Electrical aka Electrical Storm. It is a good song, but it is even a better video. Electrical [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.

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]

Bono – my U2 A to Z

When most people think of U2, they think of Bono. In fact some people even refer to U2 as Bono and the Boys, which really annoys me but that is a topic for another time. Bono is the lead singer of U2, the front man, the one who gets all of the publicity. He is also the one who writes the lyrics, [continue reading]

Happy 21st Birthday Achtung Baby!

I must admit that when Achtung Baby was released in November of 1991, I did not like it. It was such a departure from The Joshua Tree and Rattle and Hum, and actually from all of their previous albums. I had to listen to it several times before I fell in love with it, and then AB was the only [continue reading]
