I am just getting excited because it will be the first time that the whole band are near Australia in quite a while. Not to long until Adelaide and of course the rest of Australia. Enjoy the concerts kiwis!

A week this Thursday and I'll be flying back home to NZ.

I bet blueeyedgirl is happy for me to be out of the country. Sorry to disappoint you, but I'll be back on the Sunday immediately after.

On a similar note, I thought this to be a beautiful thing, from the home page of U2-Vertigo-Tour.com:

Upcoming shows
2006-03-17 Auckland
2006-03-18 Auckland
2006-03-21 Brisbane
2006-03-24 Melbourne
2006-03-25 Melbourne


I'll be at all of them.

(Yes, I know I said this before in the Buenos Aires II setlist party. It's just that beautiful that it deserves to be said again. I'm excited!! )

Its gonna be awesome! Ericsson Stadium. Dare I say it will be even better than the 1990 Commonwealth Games opening ceremony. In fact they should bring back the old Warriors drummers to introduce U2

U2 plus Saint Patrick's Day plus performing in the city home to One Tree Hill is a glorious equation.

Mark my words, it will be the best concert of the entire tour. Everything's just slotting perfectly into place. U2 are absolutely riding high, Bono's voice sounds great, they'll be fresh after two weeks of rest, they haven't been in NZ since 1993, there's my equation's factors, and on a more sombre note, the 20th anniversary of Greg Carroll's death this year is sure to add to the emotion of the night.

The more I think about it, the more excited I am. And I get to go to beautiful Wellington beforehand.

I wonder if the U2 tourists will be making a pilgrimage up One Tree Hill during the weekend of the concerts?

One Tree Hill probably won't have seen such crowds since ZooTV.

I wonder how many U2 tourists will think they've come to the wrong place due to the lack of a tree?

Perhaps they could plant a Bono tree. What would that look like?

This is going to be so awesome!

I truly never thought U2 would come to New Zealand again. If you check my posts pre-tour announcement, you'll see me stating that U2 will never play the country again. I'm just so amazed and happy.

No idea, but I'd suggest planting a Joshua tree. It's very appropriate.

(Not that it'd necessarily survive ...)

You're not seeing a cent of that money spent on my education. Not a cent, no matter how much you stalk me!
