"Best... Song... Ever... It doesn't have a hook OR a chorus!"
U2 fan since age 11. Saw my first show at age 14 (3/2/85 - Unforgettable Fire Tour). Have attended 33 shows so far (as well as seeing Bono and Edge at President Clinton's 65th birthday benefit concert) including two in Australia, two in Las Vegas and one in Honolulu. Most recent show (5/19/15) was the best on the Innocent Tour so far, and MANY others have been spectacular. Looking forward to more shows this tour. The dream is to see them in South America.
"I just got tired of the first-person so I invented all these characters; a traffic cop, a junkie, a soldier serving in Afghanistan."
- Bono on the lyrics on the NLOTH album
did you know
The Unforgettable Fire album title is a reference to "The Unforgettable Fire"—an art exhibit about the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The band saw the exhibit in November 1983 in Japan while on the War Tour.
