37, been a U2 fan since '87 (age 8!)

Seen one show each on the Elevation, 360 and I+E tour.  Going to see TJT2017 in Chicago.  So 4 shows total.

I would love to follow them around, but between school in the 90s and my job I just was never able to see more than one show a tour.  And the 90s were a complete wash for me.

51 years, been to 53 shows so far, first one as a 17 yo on June 28, 1983 at the Centrum in Worcester MA (their first US arena gig and my first concert of any kind)

Your average is very close to mine. You are like Ty Cobb and me Ted Williams.

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.

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.
It's great that you were at least able to see them once. That is certainly better than never! And it's awesome that you have a happy marriage.
