I became a fan in early 1987 when a friend bought me "Under a Blood Red Sky" (I still have the Tower Records receipt, as she saved it for me and later framed it with the Oakland ticket stub and gave it to me as a gift!)
I became totally obsessed on 11/15/1987 at Oakland JT concert and have been ever since!

1987! I had heard of them before but ISHFWLF was the song that made me a fan for life. I was only 4 yrs old then, I would walk around the house singing that song.

1983, when I saw the "Red Rocks" video on MTV. That absolutely knocked my socks off, and I bought my first U2 album (Under a Blood Red Sky) the next day, followed very shortly by "War", then UF when it came out, then......I was hooked......

This is complicated. I was introduced to U2 by my father when I was 5 in 1987. In the mid 90's my sister used to listen to some AB songs like One and Mysterious Ways and I liked them too. In 1997 I heard Discotheque on the radio and brought my 1st U2 album which was POP. Then I don't know why I completely forgot about that album and lost it . When I heard about U2 going on tour in 2001 I remembered them and was trying to find a way to see them. I became a fan when I saw them perform Beautiful Day at the 2001 Grammy Awards. I was totally blown away! I had to get ATYCLB and then I started getting their other albums and now I kick myself for not being a fan since way back.

1999, when I was 13/14 years old... That's the year when I know there's a band called U2 and started to love them.

My parents let me pick out one CD through their music club. I wasn't big into music yet, so I didn't know what to pick...I saw a pic of JT and asked them if it was any good. My parents said they liked it...they had a copy of it on vinyl. So I ordered that CD, figuring my parents could have it if I didn't want it.

The CD came in the mail on Saturday, April 1, 1995...I remember it because after listening to that album, I looked at the calendar and made a mental note because I knew I wouldn't wanna forget the day I discovered U2!!!

Oh...and after I became a fan, my parents copy of JT on vinyl became mine (actually, Dad claims it was HIS copy that my mom gave away without his permission...*lol*...he's only half kiddin' though! )

1992-- when I was getting over my New Kids on the Block phase and realized that, at the age of 15, it was time to start listening to real music created by adults for adults.

[color=royal blue]Bonochick, that's so cool!! I wish I had a day/moment like that!! I just started hearing them on the radio a lot suddenly and realized I had their Best Of and never listened to it. Then I'm like OH I LIKE THESE GUYS. Research on the internet revealed that I had the biggest crush on Bono It all went from there.[/color]

1997 for me too.

I bought the Pop cd after Discotheque got played to death on Much music. I missed the Popmart show in Edmonton because I wasn't a huge fan just then, but after a few months I was HUGE!!!

Good times after that.
