Ever had a weird U2 Concert Dream?

I don't think this is the first time its happened, but this morning I had one of those pre-wake up weird dreams. This time I was at a U2 concert in Ottawa.

Here's what I remember:

* Its a massive outdoor show, but it is not a regular tour stop. Perhaps it is a tv special.

* Crowd in front is chanting "Play New Stuff...Play New Stuff...Play New Stuff"

* Edge says into a mic "We'll play whatever we f*ing feel like playing"

* Band launches into an amazing rendition Stuck in a Moment to open - a post-punk, dirty electric version with all four members singing chorus and...somehow the rendition worked.

* Beautiful Day
* I Will Follow
* Vertigo
* Elevation
* Electric Co.
* Mofo - fans freak out, but half way through the song, the whole crowd is gone because of a security threat...band keeps playing and for some reason, I'm watching from the stage.
* I chat it up with the band while we wait for the crowd to return, and for some reason, Bono needs a new shirt...so I give him my Sam Roberts Band t-shirt and he wears it the rest of the show.
* Crowd returns
* Bono gets behind piano and starts playing Mercy...band join in. Very rough as bono plays numerous off notes...guess he should have had a few more lessons. But awesome to hear Mercy played at all.
* Large African-American choir comes on stage. U2 picks up horn instruments and provides the music for some new gospel song. Choir sucks. U2 on horns aren't any better. Boy in middle of choir starts a disruption and choir is cut off half way through song.
* Edge gets on synth and begins an intro that sounds very much like Coldplay's "Clocks"...wait a sec, it is "Clocks". A Coldplay cover? Half way through song, they totally lose sound.
* Concert comes to an abrupt end and I wake up!

Weird but very cool at the same time.

Anyone else have a bizarre U2 concert dream?

Yeah, I left during the intermission before the encore of this one U2 show. I was locked out and wasn't allowed back in. During the encore, U2 went down the street, with Bono dressed like MacPhisto while singing Big Girls Are Best.

And I'm not lying either.

In my dreams, I have been to a PopMart show, an Elevation show, and a Vertigo show.

PopMart was huge and the outdoor venue was spectacular. At the Elevation show, Bono was wandering through the audience, like he did at the MTV Europe awards that year. It was awesome. The Vertigo show was surprisingly small and intimite.

...In real life, I haven't been to any shows.

Why do you think it was made up? Too bizarre?

Dreams usually aren't the sort of things that make a whole lot of sense or are very logical.

Besides, if I were to make up a concert dream, I'd have said I was playing guitar in Edge's spot and we played a 50-song set list.

Yeah, I've had such dreams.

Like, when I dreamed that I was at a concert with some wonderful friends. And we somehow surprised the band, so Bono pulled us onstage. And we got to stand there, together, in front of 20,000 people. But then I realise it wasn't a dream, but that it actually happened!

I had a dream in late 2003/early 2004, when I was still pissed off that HTDAAB would be delayed until Nov. 2004. But the dream I had was envisioning what the 2005 tour would be like. The album was called "Dark", and the tour was also called "Dark." U2 made a very dark and powerful album in 2004. So the first half of the concert was songs from the Dark album, and other dark songs like "End of the world" and "Exit" and such. Just when the darkness and intensity became too much to bear, the dark and dreary stage suddenly began to light up, the backdrop turned red, and they started playing Streets. From then on, the concert was a joyous occasion. Kind of like the turning of night into day. This was a great dream, and a great concert in my dream. Probably better and more exciting than the Vertigo tour actually turned out to be. If I were in a band, I'd do a tour like the one in my dream.

i had 2 consecutive u2 related dreams last week. well two nights i should say..

1st was me in a bar /lounge /club type place and bono was in the back on a sofa. i remember him having red brown hair and sharp blue eyes looking at me like i was the most interesting thing he'd seen. i proceeded to tell him that all we want from him is interesting music. he said something back to me but i cant recall if it was counteractive or reassuring. ill edit later if it comes back to me.

the next night i was at a house party and there was a small stage in the back room leading to the backyard. and u2 were playing. and the party loved it. bono was at the far right with me standing right underneath him and edge was at the far left. the rythym section was there but i wasnt interested in them for some reason. then after the gig bono ran around outside.

I got Bono drunk and we talked about random shit. Never got anywhere. He said "extraordinary" about 76 times.

All dreams are weird but mine take the cake.

My first one involved the current U2 playing at a club somewhere. I was with them backstage and Edge told everyone that he completely forgot how to play guitar. He was begging Adam and Bono to help him out but they couldn't remember either.
Then they called U2 out and Edge started to just strum the guitar and it sounded awful. Bono started to sing gibberish since he couldn't remember any lyrics and the small crowd started to boo him and threw beer bottles at them.
I think I was their manager because I ran up to the microphopne and apologized for their performance. They were escorted off stage.

The second one is more complicated. They had a center stage in an arena and I had GA tickets. It was after the concert and you needed a ticket to get out of the venue too. I was with my mom and we didn't have any tickets to get out. So the woman on the loudspeaker tells us that Bono is upstairs giving these tickets away. We go upstairs and he's at this table signing stuff and giving away the tickets. I get up to him and I'm fumbling with my camera to take pictures of the lake behind him. He asks to see my photos and I show them to him. He's amazed because he spots this creature swimming in the lake and begs me to show it to Edge who is at another table a few feet away.
I walk to Edge's table and fumble again to find the same photo but it doesn't matter because it turns out that Edge is too busy judging this "booty dance music" competition. Then someone brings a pizza by and he starts shoveling it in his mouth before saying, "I'm incapable of keeping this out of my mouth!"

I'm sure I've had more but I can't recall them right now.

Um I dreamed about a month ago that I'd flown to Miami for a special U2 performance that was the halftime show for a pro football game. (yes, in June) I forgot my tickets so I couldn't get in, had to just stand outside the stadium trying to listen. There were a lot of Interferencers there.

I had it one time, can't remember much of it, only that they played all my favorite songs and it was a concert a weird place. I guess the North pole or something

I've had several dreams where I'm all excited about going to a U2 show, then when I get there, it's a small bar/club type place, and there's hardly anyone there.

Which would be great, but everything is always really blurry, like I forgot to put my contacts in.

I had a dream my band was Playing at Slane and U2 were supporting us!! It was weird cause then I was talking to the band backstage and I told them how much i loved them when i was a teenager (in the dream I must have been about 25 or so, I'm still only 16!) and he invited me to play onstage with them. The Slane stage was the same as is on the Slane DVD, the Elevation heart ramp etc. I remember jumping round it playing New Years Day and Until the End of the World and Edge and I "battling" him with guitar and me with bass..."They were supporting us??" is all i could think

I've had so many, I wouldn't know which was the best to tell you about. But, I can tell you this......They were all great and usually prior to an up and coming concert I was going to. Many were actually very much like the concert once I went. So, yes, there are others of us who has some real neat U2 dreams. In my dreams I always have a front row seat!
