Wow, there were soo many people!

I sent this link to a friend in England who attended Slane in '81 and last summer '01. Pretty awesome, huh?!

Unfortunately, there are no immediate plans for a release of the Slane show on video, dvd, or tv.

This is the response I received from dreamchaser.

Aww... I thought they would have come up with a Slane something by now. I do hope they change there mind and show it at some point in time.

Also those pictures of Slane just bring back sweet(or should I say sweaty?) memories!!HEHE!

At lot of us in the States had to buy an ETS package. ETS is the travel service which has handled U2 concert packages for many years now. What this meant is that we had to pay exorborant (sorry for my spelling) prices for a hotel in order to get tickets to Slane. But the transportation was very good. So, the bottom line was.....tix for my hubby and me costing $1300 American dollars!!!!!!!!!!

Jezebel, I for one think that was very reasonable, to see the greatest band U2 in their own country at Slane with your husband...sounds like a chance of a lifetime, and you followed your dreams.

I'd bet lots of money on the Slane video coming out at the same time as the Best Of Album later in the year!!

I know this wont make sense but, why would (if it were possible) Slane be released it Elevation in Boston is already out there?

I mean, wouldnt this be the first (if it were possible) that a group has two concert vids out at two diff locations?

is that not wrong?

I mean, I wish it was Slane instead of Boston...........but I guess they like to record mid concert...or somethin..........

I dunno, it just doesnt seem right,,,,,,,,,,even if its just released on DVD................it would hardly be greed, just somethin huge that fans would want as it was a more 'special' concert......

hmmmmmmm


by the way fantastic piccie dahling!!!!!!

sorry, me maddie no wannie offendin big lads and lovely ladies hereio........

I called a ticket broker in London and got a ticket through them. Michael Cooks ticket finders was the company. Cost about 350 US. Bought a plane ticket and stayed with my friend and his family in Dublin.

I realized when I posted the pic that the castle was Moydrum Castle from The Unforgettable Fire cover. It would have been cool for him to have used Slane castle, but I'm thinking he used Moydrum because it just looks so feckin cool. So, in reality, we have to say that U2 is the Kings of the Castles.

Well, I just learned something new. Since the UF was recorded at Slane and the Moydrum Castle is on the cover of UF, I thought Moydrum WAS Slane.
