If I'm living in NYC by the time the tour happens, it'll be NYC. If I'm still here (Pennsylvania), it'll be Philadelphia.

I hear you on the money but when they toured for Elevation, I just took a week off of school to see them play all over CA .I also took out an emergency loan to help me finance my trips. I told my professors this B.S. story about how I needed to consult with my physicians in So Cal (I was in Berkeley at the time) regarding a biopsy I needed to have (which was partially true) and they let me go. I did all my school work ahead of time, and what I could turn in when I returned, I did. I scheduled a doctor's appointment ahead of time while I was home and I went, got my check-up and a note, and then "toured' with the band!

It paid off because I ended up meeting Bono, Larry and The Edge in Anaheim on the second night and it was magical. Bono gave me a rose (which I still have), Edge gave me his water bottle (which I also kept) and Larry shook my hand ....as far as my finances go, let's just say that it took me a whole year to recover but boy oh boy was it worth it!!! The way I see it, if I failed any of my classes I could always make them up but a chance to see U2 play live and meet them doesn't come around too often.

nothing and nobody (bar somebody in my family being ill) would stop me seeing the greatest band in the world performing live. I'd tell my boss to 'feck off and stuff his job' if so required....fortunately i'm my own boss and quite frequently do tell myself to 'feck off'.

I've been trying to think of where I could borrow money from...my family won't be too much help. My mom would help me if she could but she's strapped....and the rest of my family wouldn't give me money for a concert. I have a few hundred saved right now though...I probably shouldn't have spent $ on my tat but it was for a good cause and probably wouldn't make that much of a dent anyways...

I have been trying to find places to sell my blood/plasma

I am technically not supposed to get a job in the first year of law school. I am thinking about breaking the rule but cannot find any job around here!!
