When I was 19 in the early 90's I knew tons and tons of bands from the '60s and '70s. It was much harder back then without the internet to get immediate info so I can't figure out how someone with technology at their fingertips cannot know who one of the biggest bands on the planet is.
People are crazy. I am forever grateful for MTV in the early 90s and also for my parent's vinyl collection. I listen to an 80s-90s-to present radio station whenever I'm in the car with my kids, so at least they know Prince and Heart and recognize Billie Jean from the bassline! I take their musical education pretty seriously. Yesterday I met an Indian guy at my hostel who had been raised in Eastern music and fallen in love with Western music via Bob Dylan, and had literally never heard U2 before. Based on our conversation he ended up at the show last night!

And on the other side of me was a man who had loved U2 since the the 80s but it was his very first show ever---one back from the rail in Boston! I was glad to be able to tell him NOT to go for a beer during the intermission. I thought it was way more crowded last night and people seemed to be getting wise that the intermission was so short, because I didn't see many empty seats.

Both shows were incredible. For personal reasons, Friday night was other worldly for me.

Night 1 I was on the e-stage rail north side. Then I wandered up front for the encore. Last night I had a seat, but through....magic , I wound up on the floor south side. I was out by the e-stage for when Bono came out, then hung back against the RZ rail.

That's awesome! I met so many people who said it was their first show after being a fan for 25-30 years.

ARW, be sure to catch the video of him coaching the nervous teenager through guitar on Desire. He was giving him the narrow eye because the kid was distracted Bono and the crowd instead of watching Edge like he should, but he was super sweet to the kid himself, catching his eye, giving encouraging winks and making damn sure the kid was following him for the bridge.

Yes. And the little curls under the hat, I love those too. And you know what? It's not a mirage of the camera: he does in fact have a great body, and he does indeed move very, very well. Will be looking for footage of him dancing by himself on the e-stage during COBL to gif.

yeah Edge is far too modest to show all of his funk but the man can move.

I remember seeing him playing UTEOTW in frankfurt and hannover, he was el fuego !
With him bending over the bridge , to strecht out to bono like wtf- a 16 year old. And now he did something similar on his knees during elevation this tour. Plus the dancing

I didn't feel like dealing with the periscope scavenger hunt last night so I just listened to it on mixlr. If you find a video of it post it here.

He did a dance/spin move right in front of me at Chicago 2 that I captured on video. 18 seconds of heaven. I have it on my phone and FB but I have NO idea how to get it on here.

Dublin is truly the Holy grail for U2 fans

I wanne see dublin too! one of the things I've been shouting for years. But something always gets in the way for now. Same with California.
But hey.. I'm 23. I only just started earning a normal wage.
Yes You must

I count myself very fortunate to have seen them in Dublin every tour since Popmart and Slane of course , my hubby will kill me if i don't say it's actually in County Meath (where he's from) rather than in Dublin
