Sorry about that I just changed it before I came here. The other one was from the Beautiful Day video in France which is available at U2.com I truly don't know who it is but the gals at PLEBA came to the conclusion that it's Bono's daughter Eve since it about fits the age she was in 2000. If anyone knows for sure please do tell.
Here's the image by the way..

I have two dates, kind of. But I consider myself a fan from early June 1992. I just missed out on the three shows they did in sweden in mid-june. Felt it would be stupid to go to a show with a group you just discovered the previous week. I kick myself every day since that day I wasn't more spontanious.

I went and saw them 1993 instead and that's when I became fanatic and after that it has just gotten worse.

1997 - Freshman year in college, Pop had come out not too long before (my first U2 cd) and my roommate was a huge fan, and just by listening to his collection I became a huge fan (I think he got sick of me borrowing Achtung Baby and Joshua Tree to listen to). It only took a couple months but I turned into a bigger fan than him!

Well I put 2001, but it was kind of a cross between 2000 and 2001. In 2000 I heard BD on the radio, really liked it and bought the single. In January 2001 I got ATYCLB but didn't really listen to it much, in April 2001 I discovered what a fantastic album it really was and got tickets to see them in the summer, even though I had to get a rediculously overpriced ticket package, and in June 2001 I became mega-obsessed after buying AB and JT. It was cool, because I became really obsessed and then it dawned on me that I already had tickets to see them live! That was a really good feeling!

Hmmm... this is interesting, as the "POPMart" tour started in April, 1997. I guess they held a special rehearsal concert for you in 1996.

I first heard of U2 in 1983, when my friends chastised me for not having heard of "Sunday Bloody Sunday." I immediately purchased "War" and fell in love with "New Year's Day" - not realizing it was one of U2's biggest hits at the time. As such, I listed 1983.

However, my true fanaticism began in 1984 with "The Unforgettable Fire," which is still my favorite U2 album (although it's had some serious competition over the years - including from ATYCLB). It was "love at first listen" with the song "Pride" - my all time favorite rock song from any group ever.
https://u2.interference.com/attachments/forums/signaturepics/sigpic11661_2.gifI always wanted to be somebody, but I should have been more specific.

1981. I saw them on late night TV and thought they were good and so cute but didn't sound very Irish. It was love from the start!

Big Grin 1985

Seventh grade - in the playground - my friend got this sticker of this "Christian-Rock" band U2 in a box of Post Cereal - he had an album or two - and he was cool. I thought "well, they must be cool then." Plus, I had about eight photos of the actual U2 plane from my grandfather.

This is how I come across all of my favorite bands...."Oh, you listen to them - they must be cool then."

I'd like to ask the person who answered the poll 1979 a few questions!

I became a U2 fan the first time I heard one of their songs. It was March or April of 1987 and I was in my dorm room at college one morning getting ready to go to class when "With or Without You" came on the radio. I thought it was the most beautiful, haunting thing I had ever heard in my life. I was hooked right then and there, and my love for U2 just kept growing as I heard more of their music and read about them in Rolling Stone and Time magazine.
