New member, long-time fan in Alaska
« on: May 08, 2017, 06:43:59 PM »
Excited for all things U2 this week and unable to contain my enthusiasm for this Friday's show in Vancouver!!  Been a huge U2 fan since the release of Achtung Baby when I was 13.  I listened to that cassette non-stop, and my first album continues to hold a special place in my heart.  Went back and started from the beginning after that, and it's been non-stop U2 madness ever since.  I've seen them in New Orleans, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Vancouver.  The two SOI shows in Vancouver 2 years ago were probably the most amazing concert experiences of my life!  Happy to have found a place where I can let my U2 freak flag fly w/out getting all the eye rolls and "mmm hmmms" I get from friends and family who obviously don't understand.   How is it possible I'm surrounded by so many people who just don't get it?  ;)

Hi, Alaska, and welcome. Yeah, this is a good place to be a crazy U2 fan. Or just plain crazy...
