Been a fan for many yrs, was introduced to listening to U2 by my elder sisters who were lucky enough to see them play in pubs, First concert was Zooropa at wembley. I have seen them on every tour since then. I was lucky enough to meet them in 2005 at the book signing in London. Saw them 6 times last yr and am going to Paris this yr- wish I could do more!!
"I came up with the phrase, ‘Love is bigger than anything in its way.’ And I mean it. And that is not an airy-fairy, flowers-in-the-hair version of love. I mean that most of the songs in the album are details of emotional landscapes rather than physical landscapes."
- Bono, 2017

The song 'A Day Without Me' was written in response to the suicide of Ian Curtis of Joy Division and reflects Bono's take on the selfishness of suicide, which is the dominant theme of the song.
