Huh, I got the impression you were younger. But 39's cool. My U2 obsessed uncle who got me into the band in the first place is 39. And he's one of the coolest people I know.

He also went to the Kiwi Lovetown gigs. I want his life, or at least that part of it.

Nothing wrong with that at all! Age is just a number

Axver, maybe you'll make up for your lost youth by having a really spectacular mid-life crisis...

My brain will have probably exploded before I reach middle age. Either from working too hard at some obscure historical research project or from U2 finally debuting Heartland live. One of the two.

He also has met Bono on at least two random occasions! Once at a gig, maybe Sinead O'Connor? He was just standing up the back near the soundboard - and there's Bono beside him.

Lucky bastard!

See! That's what I mean ... overgrown teenager right here Most people I know are shocked when I tell them my age. I work in aged care, so ... one time one of the residents I work with demanded to see my driver's licence because she didn't believe me when I told her (just after a birthday I had).

I know which way I'd prefer to go...
Heartland
If I may (further) de-rail things for a moment, what's your pick for the best Lovetown boot? I have a new hard drive just begging to be filled up with bootlegs

Wait. Hang on a minute here. Maybe it was YOU who stole my teenage years. So here you are, enjoying this extended teenagedom, while I'm extolling the virtues of reading Dostoevsky and Hugo and Tolstoy and whatnot!

... but I like being a nerd, so it's all good.

I really need to perfect this memory-stealing technology....

I think I'd take the Heartland way out too, but there's some really cool stuff in Kiwi social history too. OK, you're all going to stone me for my nerdiness now, aren't you? Well ... that nerdiness also brought you a lot of stuff on U2VT! So there.

I recommend the following Lovetown boots very highly. The Dublin ones are soundboard.

1989-11-18, Sydney
1989-12-01, Osaka
1989-12-26, 27, 30, 31, Dublin
1989-01-10, Rotterdam

The Aussie shows are usually not that great audio quality. If memory serves correctly, 1989-10-09 is probably the pick of the Melbourne concerts.
