Overall

My verry first U2 Gig, just 14 years and bits old. Unforgettable experience..Did I know It was the start of à journey for more than 30 years, 21 Gigs and a lifetime music collection....Anf for the anecdote: while queing at the entrance of the sold out Sporthalle an English fan offered me 120 Deutchmarks for a ticket..A guge ammount for a 14-year Old at the time. But I didn't doubt for a second to keep my precious ticket , luckely....
