U2 Official Chicago lithograph - PHOTO NOT TAKEN IN CHICAGO

OK, I am mad.

Because I am such an Edge fashion connoisseur, I have uncovered a fraud!!!

I was so excited to get the Chicago lithograph because it was my very first show. However, the picture WAS NOT TAKEN IN CHICAGO AT ALL , let alone night one or two, and I have proof.

Here's the pic from the lithograph (click for a bigger version):



Note Edge's pants. Not the paint splattered variety but the ones with the "stuff' on the knees. These first surfaced in, I believe, Atlanta in October if I remember correctly.

Here is a picture of what Edge wore during Chicago 1 - I took it myself and there is no mistaking which night this was. Note the paint splattered jeans and especially the non-plaid shirt he wore a lot in Europe and at the beginning of the North American leg.



Chicago 2 I was even closer, and it's the same jeans, and this is the night he wore the plaid.




I am seriously ticked off.

My special lithograph isn't really that special to me anymore.

No, I haven't yet. I don't know what they're going to say anyway - return it? It's so pretty, I don't want to return it either but I do want it to be from my first show. I don't know what to do!!!

So U2.com are now liars on top of being slow and lacking proofreading skills? Awesome.

Hey, I guess it could have been worse - they could have sent you a picture of a U2 tribute band.

Well, Atlanta was my first U2 show ever . . . .

I'm kidding! I'd be so pissed I'd be yelling at anyone I could get hold of!

That is pretty ridiculous. I cant believe they couldn't find one decent picture from the appropriate show? I mean, I'm sure you could find a great one right here from our members.

Side note: Lets not poke fun at the tribute bands. Especially ones that are members here. I am not in the mood for angry pm's.

Bonnie, I realize not everyone will understand the pure genius of Hencho en Mexico, but I do. And I greatly appreciate you for it.

Everyone else should read Achewood February 6, 2010

That is all.

We should start a fail list on U2.com. They fucked up SO many times over the past years.

Sorry, I wasn't poking fun at the tribute bands, just U2.com's incompetence.
