Wow, this is... This is definitely something else. Friends with Adam? Attending the show after which they signed their first contract, their first Croke in 1985, etc? Wow. I would love to meet you one day, Andy. You're a living legend. So glad to have you among us! Big hugs
It gives me pleasure to hear your passion for a band that I have similar feelings for but I would say you top it by a whisker (lol)...
Seriously though I've been to about four concerts in my time the first one going back to 1998 at Lansdowne road. None of my mates were ever into U2 so that's probably why., I was at the SEE last week on my own excellent as always but certain songs of the new album haven't grown on me...
This is best story that I ever seen from a here for a life-long fan long before they released Boy
Great to see to you here that you are of the band on of the closest friends and you're my hero and famous also
What many people was at the National Stadium in 1980?
It was a sold-out gig?
I was so jealous that you were at the "dream it up all again" history speech gig in 1989 and also right after at the NYE show, even I was from lightyears away from born
Has it very hard rained at these days like we saw a bit in the FTSD documentary?
Was you in Dalkey there and visit the mates when the polished AB in March 1991 at the Danesmoate House like we saw in FTSD and at that time to drink with them some flash beer?
When I will be sometime in 5 or 6 years later in Dublin, or in London and then I invite you a drink and talking about your life-time U2 story
Great story Andy. You were present at the beginning. That National Stadium gig lives in infamy among U2 bootleg aficionados. Thanks for sharing your list. Seeing your all time gig list would be interesting.
"The crowd had to sing for Bono, so it was a very emotional night. At the end of the show the audience didn't leave. They turned around and faced all the peace-keepers and started applauding. It was a moment I will never forget."
- Larry on Popmart Sarajevo
did you know
Bono stated that he wrote the song 'Kite' about and to his children; yet, after he completed it, he realized that it was a song of his dying father, whom he had a difficult relationship with, but in the end found his peace.
