The River is giving away U2 tix, I don't know where the show is though. You have to be caller number 10 when they say so, then you have to win the drawing at the listening party. I tried calling once but no luck.

I will try to find out more. I listen to retro 106.9 more than the River, but I'll check out the website.

I think we should have an Omaha area meetup! I knew there had to be some U2 fans around here somewhere! I've gone to meetup.com but there don't seem to ever be enough people there to meet up.

Sounds good to me!! I found out more info about the listening party @ Club Patrick on 114th and Dodge. It's on Nov. 22 from 6-8pm. Unfortunately I have a class that night at 6, and it's a final exam. I'm hoping it doesn't go more than an hour or so.

Checking email now!

Not to get off topic here but does anyone else think that this album is absolutely amazing??

This is the strongest album from start to finish that they have released since at least Achtung Baby but probably The Joshua Tree. They really weren't bullshitting when they said that this is their best work!

Don't get me wrong, ATYCLB is a great piece of work but the second half of the album is kind of dull (good tunes but dull). This album has more soul! I am very excited about this tour!

Robert

I wouldn't say "dull." The word "contemporary" would be more appropriate. ATYCLB should have won Best Album of the Year at the Grammies. It had four songs that won individual grammies, and the other songs are amazing, like Kite, Peace on Earth and When I Look At the World. I haven't heard the Bomb. If it is better than ATYCLB, I am going to be floored...

The new stuff I've heard is beautiful, you're right it does have soul.

So I'm still working on finding out information on where the best place to get the album is. My friend told me he's working for a radio station and they're going to be at Homers (not the Old Market one). I kind of want to go there to see if he can get me anything cool.

Anyone else have ideas?

lived all but the last four years of my life in Nebraska.

I think the Buffet relationship could play a role in a Qwest Center concert.

It boils down to who negotiates the tour.

If Clear Channel is the prime negotiator in this tour, who is the Omaha Clear Channel connection these days? (do they play well with the new arena).

U2 did the ZOO-TV tour in Ames Iowa * Kansas City.
(the earlier indoor tour was in Minneapolis).

The POP MART tour was in Kansas City (they shot the video Last Night On Earth the next day...incorporating Lawerence KS author William Burroughs into the shoot).

I'd come back to Omaha to see U2 play there! Here's hoping for the best for all of you.
