U2 up for two more awards at 1st ever "Top of the Pops" awards!

Looks like that U2 may add a couple more awards to their ever increasing collection of awards won so far in past 12 months.

U2's up for "Top Tour" award with competition from the likes of Eminem, Oasis, Kylie Minogue and the one to beat if U2 is to win the award, Madonna. Both U2 and Madonna whether right or wrong has been grabbing a lot of headlines with their tours but Id say that since Top of the Pops is a British institution, U2 would get it cos U2 had played more British shows than the big lady herself this year. We'll wait and see!

The other award that U2 is up for is "Top Rock" with competition from Travis, Limp Bizkit, Stereophonics and Wheatus. I reckon this should be an easy one to win cos of U2's popularity and their successful tour this year but we'll wait and see what happens.....

Hmmmm, the show itself is on 30th November so who knows U2 might be free then to join in the fun at Manchester......????????

any comments, anyone?

There are too many Awarad shows. Awards are meaningless...

Hmmm, interesting.....I havent a clue but I would try this: www.underabloodredsky.com if I were you. They have hundreds of U2 boots there and though I have only been there once before, I cant remember if there are UK show boots but its worth a try! (I cant access the website by the way cos my PC at work has barred me from those kind of sites! hmph!)

Yo maddie! Galcier?!?! You mean Glacier! lol!

Glaicer bowls? Oh darn it I spelt it wrong here. I mean Glacier bowls???? What makes you think that I have them? In fact I dont but who cares......

Whassup maddie? up for another mad weekend?

Maddie!

Chill out? CHILL out this weekend? Thats not really like you.....I always thought you are a party animal or a club/disco freak (whichever applies most to your fiery personality!) but I suspect you are affectionate towards a few pints at the local!

Hmmmm Im chilling out too this weekend before I got a friend's stag party to go to next weekend followed by my sister's 21st birthday party the weekend after that. And then theres my friend's wedding on the weekend after that! Phew! Only when I have finished all that I will chill out all month till Xmas Day!
