I'm seeing U2's Slane Concert at FamousPlayers cinema on November 4th!!

My local radio station (106.9 The Bear in Ottawa) was giving away some tickets to go see this performance...The dj had no idea if this was a commercial release, a one-off, a special presentation by the radio or what...

Anyhow, needless to say, when I told him that not only did I attend that concert but I was practically front row, he gave me a couple tix!

I'll let you all know how it goes!!!


- julie

Hey Kobayashi,

I didn't call the Bear...I emailed the dj last night and stated my case for tickets...You can call them at 754-1069 (or is it 750-1069) .
The dj this morning may have more details regarding that!

Lazyboy,

Unfortunately I don't have any more details than that...
The dj I emailed in the evening wasn't even the one who had been giving tickets out earlier in the day - as a result, he was absolutely clueless!!!
I hope it is Slane 2 because I wasn't at Slane 1!!

You can check out their website www.thebear.net

There are no details up yet but they may post some info in the coming days...and you can always email them (or the dj's!) to find out more! Like I said, hopefully, they'll have more info than the dj I spoke to last night!

I found this at youtwo.net so it looks it may be available on wide release! (but who knows!)

http://www.youtwo.net/news_archives.adp?newsid=21924

I'll contact the radio later to see if they have more details re. DVD, etc..

Cool, enjoy yerself anyway! And best of luck Kobayashi, and not an exclusive?! Heck Ottawa did better than the rest of the world, best we've got in Ireland is a 1 minute clip of the start of Slane1!!!
Lady, do yerbest to find out HOW and WHERE this radio station got this! Hope this is a sign that the reported DVD release of Slane2 in December is still going ahead!!!

Kobayashi,

Did you listen to the radio? They gave a pair away last hour...People just have to answer simple questions like "Name 2 players of the band who aren't Bono and Edge" and "Did U2 play Ottawa before?"...

Or better yet, if you email the dj currently on and beg and plead like I did, you may score some that way too!

p.s.: Why does it say I'm at 500+ posts when I'm definitely over 1500???

U2 live at Slane Castle

TV is strange (at least in Iceland), they still haven´t broadcasted the Oprah show with Bono, but now we´ll get U2 live at Slane Castle next Friday.

But what´s the story about this show. Did they tape the first or the second show?? I was at the first one, but I didn´t see any cameras.

Who has seen this???

FYI - all the Slane shows are taped and then later shown on television. They do it every year.

Attention to Toronto U2 fans! Slane Castle to be shown in IMAX!!!

Good morning to you all in Toronto!

I have very good news......I saw the article below at @u2.com and IM ABSOLUTELY GREEN with ENVY at you guys having the chance to see it on a big screen! Its going to be awesome to watch!

Quote:
SLANE CASTLE IN TORONTO: Toronto radio station 102.1 The Edge is advertising a "private screening" of U2 Live at Slane Castle, which is happening November 4th at the Paramount Imax Theatre. An @U2 reader called the theatre to confirm the screening and was told it's scheduled for 11:30 p.m. The radio station is also having a contest which includes a chance to win free tickets to the screening, free CDs, t-shirts, and more. Meanwhile, an @U2 source who works for a CBS-TV affiliate in the U.S. is unable to confirm the date of the U2 at Slane TV special.
Hmm, you will have to let us all know what you think once you have seen it!

I've entered the contest. I hope I win!!!! Yeah, every now and then, edge 102.1 comes up with some cool contest. Also, they just held the top 300 songs of the '90's and number 1 was of course Teen Spirit by Nirvana but number two was ONE and number 9 was mysterious ways. Not bad!!!

Calgary had a contest like this when the Elevation DVD came out. There was a contest to see the DVD at the IMAX. CJAY 92 had the concert. I really wanted to go, but I didn't win.
