How far have you/would you go to see U2?

Either in the past or in the upcoming tour of 2005/06, how far have you/will you travel to see the boys play rock and roll?
Personally, I live just outside London, and for the Popmart tour I got as far as Paris (200+ miles) and for the Elevation tour, I saw them in New York at Madison Square Gardens (a slightly more impressive 3500 miles).
For the new tour I may go to Europe (like Germany or Spain) if possible but what plans is everyone making? I'm sure you have much more impressive figures than mine. Just curious.

I haven´t seen them in concert yet.

But i would do pretty much anything!!!

I have to go to "fear factor" to win the money so that i could buy the tickets and pay for the travel.......

If i was to win tattsloto, or given A LOT of money.
I'd be crazy enough to go to every show on tour.

thats in one of my "Realistic Plans" for next year.
It all comes down to how much money i've got saved in the kitty come ticket sales time, and if it does not clash with my school exams...which the Ireland gigs (if they go as those "confrimed dates") will.

I live just outside Glasgow and I travelled to London to see 'em, but if money was no object I'd pretty much go anywhere to see 'em.

I have and will travel by car anywhere I can drive to that only requires a one night stay in a motel. I can't afford 2 and the ticket too, and I don't fly

America is a huge country, and many times bands don't come within hundreds of miles of fans, even in our own states. It's not uncommon to travel. During the Elevation tour I used to read complaints from Europeans that U2 wasn't coming to their city or country. I say, well, hit the road, European countries are about the size of our states, and that's what we do. We have to if we want our U2!

I live in the Philippines. Went all the way to Giants Stadium in New Jersey back in `97 just to see U2 live. It was the experience of a lifetime.

Cheers,

J

I'm going to be eyeing the Australia/NZ dates with great interest, have enough frequent flyer miles to burn for the occasion...

Forgot to say that for Popmart I hit shows from Las Vegas to the UK/Ireland. Elevation I didn't go quite as far afield as there so many shows spread out in the Northeast, although I did get to Fort Lauderdale and Chicago.

I saw them in Denver twice during the Elevation tour, where I had to drive about 20 minutes down to the Pepsi Center. I think I may be venturing a bit more this time around and check them out in their backyard.

Ambitious, I know.

I'd travel thousands of miles, and I plan on doing so. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I plan on seeing a concert in Boston, Massachusetts. Part of that is I want to do some possible home-shopping.

The only two times I've traveled by plane is to see U2. I'll even enter and win contests to see them.
