U2 Fan Documentary

I've been advised that I'm posting in the wrong place, and that PLEBA is the place to be...so... I'm sending out a request for volunteers who would be willing to participate in interviews for a documentary about U2 fans.

What I'm specifically looking for is...

- jpegs of U2 concert ticket stubs

- jpegs of U2 concert wrist bands

- jpegs of Wire Tags

- Interviews with people who used to make fanzines (pre internet!) on their
kitchen table or bedroom floor

- Interviews with people who were at the Slane Gigs

- Interviews with people who were at the ZooTv gigs

- Interviews with people who were either in Dublin for the NYE shows in 1989, or who remember listening to it on the radio live.

- Interviews with former Wirelings, in particular anyone who was involved in
the making of Wire Tags or the Wire Banners, or transporting the Wire
Banners around the world.

- Inteviews with any of Bono's Babes, those rare, lucky and elusive
creatures who have danced with the B man on stage at a U2 gig

- Interviews with older U2 fans - I know that you are out there - dying to share your stories about when u2 were 'cool'...

- Interviews with people who have got involved with charities or other
organisations because of U2's commitments to various Social Justice Issues

- Anyone who has travelled extensively to see U2 gigs, and given up
work/attendance at family events in order to do so. (I could really, really, use someone for this segment).

- Anyone with entertaining or amusing stories about experiences they have
have had meeting U2 or at concerts in queues.

- Stories about the U2 fan community - there a few thousand people here on Inteference, it's a community, there have to be stories.

If you're interested in participating please EMAIL me at gypsyheart@y7mail.com.

I don't get on to Inteference as much as I'd like, but will say that this website has been a great help in a number of ways with this project.

Yes, yes, my own website is coming soon.

Cheers,

Natalie

Does someone the better side of forty and exactly one year younger than Larry count? We share the same birthday.

Been a member of Amnesty International and Greenpeace for as long as I've been a U2 fan i.e. 20 years!

I've been fortunate enough to meet Adam, Edge (twice) and Bono outside their hotels.

My stubs for Joshua Tree but REAL dates were April 3rd and 4th, 1987. This was when Bono fell and cut his chin open and they had to postpone the dates by one day for the opening of the tour. We got to use our same tickets regardless of what happened. (TG) This was at Arizona State University Activity Center, Tempe, AZ. (Originally dates were suppose to be April 2, and 3, 1987. Most sites have these dates wrong)




Some people sold their tix when the date got changed. So this was the floor seat I bought the day of the show...The scalper scratched out the 1 to make it look like the first row. lol!!! We knew it when we got it and didn't care it was really 11th row. We were on the floor. That was all that mattered...


original seats for that show...

I'm so glad you didn't email them and that we get to see these....my how ticket prices have changed. It sure makes me feel old when I can remember paying only $12.00 or so to go to a concert. I didn't keep my stubs from the Joshua Tree show at LA Coliseum in '87, but I'm guessing I must have paid about $15 from looking at yours. Now I'm budgeting for next year to shell out a few hundred over the course of a couple shows (unless I'm lucky enough to get GA... :Pray: )

Thanks for sharing!

I just wrote her an email telling her I posted them here instead. It is definately interesting seeing how ticket prices have changed isn't it. The good old days. I have a Pop mart ticket somewhere too, but got to find it as well. I just recently came across some stuff I had kept in a rubbermaid tub in the garage.

Thanks for not minding I posted them. I should have read the whole thing. I saw TICKET STUBS and I was like I HAVE THOSE!!! and started posting away. lol...

This friend of mine use to run this Rock and Roll Fanzine and she didn't want to do it anymore, so I took over it for her. It was called A PIECE OF THE ACTION. Our little group of friends who went to all the shows and wrote up reviews for the fanzine went by a funny name given to us by a friends mother called Cosmic Rockers and/or Cosmic Runners. (Don't ask me to explain...haha!) When I met Adam on 3/25/1982 I had him sign an autograph for the fanzine and our group.

I agree, I'm so glad that you shared them.
There's something organic about tickets - in a way that photos are not real.
Does that make sense?

What are Wire Tags?


Wire Tags were yellow cards that identified people who were on 'Wire', the original U2 mailing site from the early 1990's. They were created for the PopMart tour and were used during Elevation.

Can you please rescan the ZooTv ticket and send it to me at gypsyheart@y7mail.com, or post it again here??

That is so AWESOME! I prefer the more colourful tickets.
