Yeah, it would be more of an incentive to travel to a show if I had someone to go with! No one around here is interested in travelling to a show; can't find even that many people who would be going to an Atlanta show...well besides people on interference I mean.

I went pretty much by myself to the Elevation shows though...I think there is no way you can't have an amazing time at a show though, unless something horrible happens, like you get really sick and have to leave!!

I know, everyone thinks I'm crazy. They're like "I've never met a person who is as into a band as you are" ....

Some of them "like" U2, but not enough to pay for a ticket and go to a show....

This seems to be a common worldwide phenomenon.

I went camping with a friend last year and while drinking in the pub we found (as you do if your scottish) he practically accused me of having some kind of mental illness because I collected U2 stuff. I think he was getting at the collecting aspect rather than it being anything to do with U2.

comes in handy at times though having friends that don't like U2....if i want them to leave, instead of being rude, I just stick on a U2 dvd.....Rattle and Hum tends to be very effective for some reason.

At my last birthday party all my friends "threatened" to come in U2 T-shirts. Their idea backfired because instead of being embarrassed I was impressed and encouraged them!Unfortunately, noone rose to the challenge (wimps!)

The good thing is that my family, who live in Sydney, will call me if anything re U2 is going to be on the telly (which gives me 3 hours to get organised to watch/video etc).

Ooohhh...I just saw you're from Perth. I need advice on coming to Australia but it's too long to explain here. I might start a thread soon about it when I have time...

My internet is on the blink guys, so I'm going to take this as a sign I should get back to my reading...

(But I'll be back before going to bed to see if the next installment is in!!!) Enjoy the drinks all! Talk to you soon!

i'm not going to bother asking anyone if they want to go to a U2 gig this year but i'll get extra tickets anyway. my friend may be back over here from germany in the summer and he likes U2 so maybe a show might coincide with his visit. other than that i'll go on my own.

Hey Lauren

I believe you are planning a trip to sunny Oz? Try and get to Ningaloo Reef for some diving if you can (on my side of the island). It,s as good as the Great Barrier Reef with the added plus of Whale Sharks (totally safe and the size of a bus) Plus the west coast is totally different to the east (not so many people).

Sorry Lauren, just read your message. Talk to me any time re Oz.

Cheers,

I'm definetly going to an Ohio show. Then trying to take my mum to a PA show. And then either Boston or RI.


I took my boyfriend at the time to the last concert and he was such a wanker. We basically broke up the next day....he just couldn't understand the spirituality of a U2 concert. Among other major problems....
