The U2_GTA I made reference to onstage is a great group of U2 fans dating back to the old Yahoo Groups days, we've had fan gatherings, done trips to concerts together, formed real friendships and lasting relationships over the years, all because of our shared love and enjoyment of U2. Some of my first ever performances were for this group and various members over the years and in that moment...I was in celebration mode...and I had almost the whole crew in front of me..people I normally see at small bars and who have put up with pretty crappy technical environments, even, in order to join me and my bandmates in paying tribute to U2. And now there we were on the best stage in the city and it was going off in there...the first thing that popped into my head in that second was "big up the group". Jessica, the lady who danced in Mysterious Ways, is one of the oldest members of the group, also.

I also shouted out "Rosie". That was my son's elementary school teacher and coach, who was way up in section 318 somewhere. He was instrumental in coaching my son when his basketball started to take off, is a great guy... and he's a HUGE U2 fan. Named his daughter after a song, even. He's not part of the U2_GTA tho, so I had to single him out

It may well be true! But that's how I remembered it anyway.

Thanks so much for clearing that up. Sounds like what U2 is all about.
I lack the age and length of U2 fandom to build up a network like U2_GTA,
but I do know the feeling that you describe. U2 crowds are the best. I remember being 19 or 20 back during the 360 tour. I knew nobody who liked U2... It was hard, no one my age liked No Line, it flubbed on the radio.
I finally decided I would go to see them no matter what, and found this, Atu2 and U2start.
I met friends for life through U2 and this forum,so I can relate!
Gosh I'm so exited to see them again and meet the old and new friends.U2 fucking rules. Thanks again!

To Gvox, U2brothr and the other two gents in Acrobat - I just watched your vid on YouTube when U were invited up on stage and it was really cool! What an experience!!
I liked the end when Bono says: " they will say things about you. Remember: they are only half right." Lmao!
Good job guys!

I am new to the board here so forgive my lack of members but was the belly dancer and girl from night # 2 also members here...?

Mrs. Edge's/Jessica's review is on page 2 of this thread.

I think I saw GibsonGirl/Stephanie post briefly somewhere around here - maybe in the setlist thread for her night?
