Five hundred pounds...

Slane Castle: Out of Control -

"Father, I need a lend of 500 pounds
Because, we're gonna go over to London
And we're gonna score outselves a record deal
And when we get our record deal we're not gonna stay in London
We're not gonna go to New York City
We're gonna stay and base our crew in Dublin
Cause these people, this is our tribe

But I still need a lend of 500 pounds... what do you say?
My old man, 500 pounds
I want to thank my old man for that 500 pounds
I want to thank Larry Mullen's father for 500 pounds
The Edge's mother and father for 500 pounds
Adam Clayton's family for 500 pounds
And by now you've probably all given us about 500 pounds each too...so thank you"


this bit gets me a little...

Last time you watched the DVD, did any of you think "YEAH, ON THE BLOODY TICKETS?!" as well or is it just me?

i think its meant as an average. if someones first show costs them 150 bucks or say 75 pounds they cancel out one of us diehards. the estimate is still bad but i see where hes coming from
