Hi everyone! My name is Emma, 18 years old, from Melbourne, Australia!
Forst of all brilliant site!
I saw U2 for the first time on Sunday night, it was mind-blowing/brilliant/amazing/the best day of my life. Now I feel I have stepped over the line of being a fan to being an obsessed fan...just like I am with Bowie!
Hey Emma, I'm a hog, I went both nights - it was my first ever U2 experience (seen the Aussie U2 Show loads of times, and they are great, but y'know.. this is the REAL THING!), several other BDU'ers were also up for it, my sister and her best friend came along first night too.
How sore, deaf and hoarse were you the day after? I felt like I'd run a marathon!
I wish I could have attended both...I attempted to get tickets for Saturday night, I sent a rep on behalf of myself but 'apparently' they couldn't get any. So I was extatic when they revealed the second Melbourne show.
I remember going to the loo's at Southern Cross station and looking in the mirror and thinking how animal I looked. My ears were ringing the entire night..I'd lost my voice...true symptoms of a great concert! I was on such a high for the entire week following, it was unbelievable. I wanted and believed I could save the world. LOL, that's what a U2 concert can do to someone. Wow, it was incredible though, an evening I'll never forget.
Before U2 Bowie ( ) was the ultimate concert....still is I suppose, just a totally different atmosphere though. Matched my Bowie experience quite easily! I read there were BDU mb's going, I was going to post but I haven't met anyone before and I'm more of a lurker than an MB! Oh well, I;m sure there will be a next time
