60 years old. 24 shows. And 3 more coming up this summer: Santa Clara, Chicago... drum roll please...DUBLIN.

Elevation (3): NJ, Chicago, Kansas City
Vertigo (7): Denver, NJ, NYC, Mpls, Milwaukee, Omaha
360 (9): Chicago, NJ, Oklahoma, Winnipeg, Miami, Mpls
I+E (5): Chicago, NYC

I wasn't even really interested in U2 until 2001. I have been making up for lost time ever since. I thought I was "too old" in 2001, but I just keep getting older and I am apparently not too old yet.
Hey, I'm glad to see another "older" person hanging around here. I'm 62, and definitely not too old yet either!

Got you both beat - I'm 64, have been to 35 shows and will add 3 more this summer.

I'm 47 and the upcoming June 20 show will be my 11th U2 concert and 12th time seeing them live, including from the front row at the Amnesty International concert in 1986 in Denver. Other shows:

March 17, 1985 - Denver
Nov. 7-8, 1987 - Denver
March and June 1992 - MSG and Giants Stadium
Popmart Tour - RFK Stadium
Elevation and Vertigo Tours - 1 each at MCI/Verizon Center, DC
360 Tour - FedEx Field
I&E Tour - MSG #8 (with the Boss)

Also impressed by the number of young folks on here. I figured most were around my age or slightly younger.
