37 and I've been blessed to see them play once in person. I doubt I'll get another chance.
That sucks. How come you won't be able to see them again? If it's for a personal reason that you don't wish to share please don't feel obliged to.

Cuz he suffers from a disease called 1-itus. Can only do things in 1's. Sadly, there is no known cure.

That's a shame. My dad knew someone who had 1-itus. I heard that it's extremely rare, but deadly. Apparently it only allows you to live once.

I live in Tasmania which is an island state of Australia. U2 will never come here, it's too small. We saw them in Melbourne on our tenth wedding anniversary, which was amazing.

We have 2 young children with autism who require quite a bit of care so it's hard to travel much. We're also not very financial because neither of us is able to work a lot because we're needed at home. U2 shows are just so expensive and they visit Australia so rarely that I just don't think circumstances will align for us again.

It was a special, probably once in a lifetime night with the woman I love. So I'm ok with that:)

Bless you, and your family. You are blessed to have seen U2 even once. You are MORE blessed to have your family.

Thank you :)

Yes I a count my blessings every day. I married my best friend and we have a fairy-tale marriage filled with love, grace, forgiveness and passion. We have 3 beautiful sons. I am truly blessed.

And, to us, that one show that we saw was such a gift and we knew we were having a once in a lifetime experience. We cherished it and it'll always be a special memory. I think that some people maybe don't fully understand how blessed they are to be able to do something like that whenever they want.
