Another German member =)

Hi to everyone!

I've been lurking on this board for a while, now I am picking up the courage to say hello. ^^
Hmm, my name is Tina, I am 28 and live in Solingen, Germany.
My English teacher introduced me to U2 about 10 years ago, and 2001 I saw them in Cologne during their Elevation Tour (no need to mention it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to). Haven't seen them since unfortunately but I wrote my university master thesis partly about them so I dug into them more than before and now I felt the time has come to join a forum.

Hi Luján!

Yeah, the overall topic was "The role of music in the Irish cultural Tradition", subthesis "The more successful the popular music that comes out of Ireland, the less Irish it is".

Well yeah, they were my main band. I wanted to prove the thesis wrong and so focused on the things that do make their music Irish.

Hallo Tina, willkommen im Forum und viel Spaß!

I have been to all five German U2 shows on the 360 Tour, Berlin 2009 and Munich 2010 being my favourites. Hope you'll be able to check out another U2 show soon.
