Happy b'day Interference.
I can't really say anything that won't echo everyone else's sentiments... but I'll just add my cheesy words anyway. I wanna thank you so much Elvis, and all you staff members that contribute to the site. Thanks for making this place for us U2 fans to come together.

It amazes me just how many people, from all over the world come together here... It's great! I seriously don't know what I'd do in my spare time without this place. I've made so many friends... people that have been soo kind and generous. The people here have managed to make me laugh, cry, fume, and always come back to that bright blue glow again. (wow, that's some cheese there). I feel as though I've learned so much since I've been here.. not just about U2, but about life, the world, and even myself. It's true! And yeah, it's a huge addiction, but I can't think of a better band, or a better group of people, to be addicted to.
Thanks so much!

More memories....

Jan 9, 2001 Ananova reports the following:

(please note: u2tour.com is/was part of Interference.com)

Unofficial website 'first' with U2 tour dates

Mystery surrounds a tranche of live dates for U2's upcoming world tour which seem to have been posted prematurely.

Despite the band's official site U2.com claiming no official news announcement would be made until a date later this month - thought to be January 9 - 30 finalised dates have been posted alongside a further 15 other provisional dates on U2tour.com.

The dates include two at the Miami Arena on March 24 and 26, kicking off the tour, as well as many more in cities across North America.

The site also says U2 will play 80 dates in arenas worldwide on the upcoming tour. It gives details of ticket prices, dates for shows in France on July 17 and 18, and calls for feedback from fans on all aspects of the tour.

Although in the past U2 have announced their tours with spectacular press conferences, throughout the campaign for All That You Can't Leave Behind they have used the internet to make important announcements.

Though U2tour.com does not claim to carry official U2 news, it does appear to carry information from official sources, either leaked or not, reports NME.

Lets travel even futher back now...
I'll tell you a little story... and forgive me if I sound like 'I told you so'... the past is the past... shite happens... you learn from it, and better yourself... hopefully.

WAY back when, Interference.com wasnt what it is today.. it was slightly more blurry... I had no problem 'stirring it up'... scandal always seemed to surround the site, how/if we were 'connected', etc...

At the time, WIRE (the u2 mailing list) was the heart of the online u2 community, forums hadnt really been heard of it... needless to say, that at the time it was filled with elitist U2 fans, people that would be so bold as to tear down the Interference.com banner at the first POPMART show(4/25/1997) in Las Vegas (after they had hung their own banner above ours as seen in the pic below). Not very nice.. especially of U2 fans...

Perhaps they weren't so happy that Interference's tag line was:

"sometimes the real data is lost in the cross talk...
where the wire ends...
the interference begins..."

Oh well.. we all act immature at points... and some of us grow up...

Wire, it still exists, but it's part of Interference now.
Funny how things work out isn't it?

To all those that said I couldnt....

**cass tries really hard to get banned by singing shania twain songs,,,badly

"...look how far you've come now baby.
They said,
I bet
he'll never make it
But just look at him going strong
Still together
still holding on

Couldn't resist man. I did buy that single on my way home from the '98/U2 concert
I do not know the Interference.com history, but I can see what a great site it is now and can only begin to imagine what it has been like for you.So yes please, share the stories.

PS: I think it's cool that Interference and my dog, Gustovox were born 2 days apart. I think raising a puppy was the easy job.

Once I felt shrouded in mystery, 'the U2 secret' was known by many, but I felt like I was in a company of one for so many years. Then I stumbled upon this beautiful, sometimes frustrating, community known as Interference, and I realized how many others loved this band, and it made me love them even more than I already had.

Thank you Joel for your passion and devotion to Interference, and for creating a community who shares in that same passion for U2's music. Happy birthday Interference, and here's to many more years of sharing in the music and message that is U2.


"The truth is when that singer is saying something that comes from right down within him, and it affects you right down within you. That's when you start talking about great music, as distinct from nice music." -- Bono
