How many times have you seen U2 live?

Dallas was my 28th show. I heard a poster on here once say he had seen the band 234 times. I was always jealous of that guy.

Just 3 times

The next time opportunity allows, I'm keen to follow them around whichever country I'm in and just indulge.

How many times have you seen U2 live?

Just three...

360 Chicago 1 (2009)
360 Houston (2009)
JT Dallas (2017)

By some miracle, every U2 show I've ever seen has had Ultraviolet, my favorite song. 2/3 of them have had Bad. I also saw the last performance of Your Blue Room. Not a bad run.

Both Vertigo Auckland shows, the first two Chicago 360 shows, the two Auckland ones, and Nashville.

So seven.

I've heard One Tree Hill and The Fly more than the entire Rattle and Hum live favourites.

Edited: Fuck I just realised I've heard Bad more than Angel of Harlem or Desire.

Tours
Elevation - 2
Vertigo - 9
360 - 3
i/e - 4

will go to both MetLife shows, and may make an appearance at FedEx if i can swing it.

"Others"
Brooklyn Bridge show
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary Concert
Tonight Show on top of Rockefeller Center
Edge and Adam w/ Unforgettable Fire @ The Cutting Room

The song i've seen the most? Vertigo - 21 (yes - vertigo has only been played 18 of the 22 times i've seen U2 perform, yet i've seen the song 21 times )

I've seen 78 unique songs over 22 performances. (3.5 songs i've never heard before per concert)

for comparison's sake...
i've seen Pearl jam 13 times with 138 unique songs (10.6 songs i've never heard before per concert)
i've seen Springsteen 10 times with 102 unique songs (10.2 songs i've never heard before per concert


while i certainly never expect u2 to shuffle things up the way Pearl Jam or Springsteen do, the ratios are pretty stark.

24 between 1992 and now. One show in 92, one in 97, none on Elevation, and made up for lost time since then.

I feel like I need to see one more show this summer to give me a nice round number.
