favorite show: 2017-07-01 - Cleveland
"Why? The most recent one! Since moving to Cleveland in 2007, this is the first time I've seen them here. They really rocked it out and played so well."
favorite album: Achtung Baby
"The innocence, joy, ambition, dreaming, and pain of this album are special to me, but also at the time it was released I'd never heard anything else like it."
I've been a fan since I heard my older brother playing Live at Red Rocks via cassette tape when I was 8. When he got the Rattle and Hum VHS copied, I watched it over and over. I was 16 when Achtung Baby was released, but I wasn't yet old enough to go to the Zoo TV tour. More than anything, I wish I could have. I bought the U2 Zooropa Live bootleg CD for around $50 wore it out. Zoo TV and Achtung Baby are my favorite album and tour, and I've listened to more 1st and 2nd leg shows than I can count. I wish my younger self would have had access to U2start.com.
