Did not see the Original Tour. I was 11/12 :(
Seeing Seattle on Sunday!

My mom bought the OJT album back when I was 11 because she liked a couple of the songs, I however, would sit with my monster headphones and listen to it over and over. It was so good. I probably even asked to go to the tour but was surely told no.

I've seen them three times now, but my Mom never has. I'm taking her on Sunday to see them for the first time. I'm so excited to share this with her.

I wasn't even close to existing when this wonderful album and original tour came about. Watching the videos and hearing the audio from the original tour was really special, I bet the band didn't realise JT would be regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time back then.

Obviously being slightly bias towards this years JT tour as it will be the first time ever seeing U2 live and I think the stars have aligned as I couldn't think of a better tour to see them on, playing a full album in it's entirety and the rest filled with a journey before and after.

The fact I was born in 1993 and didn't even exist when JT came about just makes it even more magical for me to be in the same lifetime as this phenomenal, I mean that genuinely. This tour with that amazing 8k screen and the additives make it superior to the original in my opinion

I was in Ireland during the four shows of 87. Some of my family members were at the Dublin shows but not me. I remember the Cork gig as well. I was only 11 so I wasn't able to go to the Toronto gig in October either. This time is different though.
