Original - Nov. 12th, 1987 - BC Place, Vancouver
TJT30 - May 12, 2017 - BC Place, Vancouver
            May 14, 2017 - Century Link Field, Seattle

Was at Western Washington University in 1987.  Took a bus from school up to the show.
Going back to Vancouver with a friend that was also at the original.  Was in the nosebleeds for the original - excited to be GA this time around!

From what I understand, I think only Vancouver and Dublin are hosting the original and the current shows at the same stadium.  I know BC Place has been remodeled and now has a retractable roof.  Not sure about Croke Park.

Croke has been completely redone since 87. Same with Cork Stadium which is almost done.

I attended the 2 L.A. Stadium shows in addition to 4 Arena shows in L.A. of the original tour.  Unfortunately, for the first time since 1984 I will be missing a U2 tour.  I moved to Idaho and we are in the process of building a new home, so funds and being too far away is preventing me from seeing U2 this time.  Feel's weird...never missed a tour in 33 years, usually see multiple shows on each tour...for I&E saw them 3 times...if there was ever a tour I wish I could go it is this one.  Now I am depressed!  lol

Wish I could but my Wife would kill me.  As a consolation, she did buy me the Red Hill Mining Town 2017 Picture Disk and ordered me the Deluxe 30th Anniversary CD box set..so at least I have that to look forward too.

87 was like a dream come true. I became a u2 fanatic in 85 and lived in Tempe at the time. To have them open and close a tour in your backyard was unbelievable

I was too young at the time to see TJT.  ZooTv was my first major concert.

Will be going to the TJT30 show in Seattle on Mother's Day with my wife and kids.  It will be my kids' (13 and 10) first big rock show.

My 13 year old son loves 90s U2 and would prefer a Pop anniversary tour.  My daughter enjoys the new Red Hill mix and SOI.  Something for everyone.

My wife and I have seen a number of shows together.  Will be fun to take the whole family.
