"What an album opener! Strong all the way through and a real anthem for me."
I was first gripped by U2 as a 12 year old - O heard Vertigo on the radio and loved it. This was the kind of music I wanted to hear. From that day I have followed the band and fell in love with the back catalogue, in particular The Joshua Tree. Been to 3 shows so far - Sheffield '09, London '15 and Amsterdam '17.
