Hello from Indiana, PA
« on: May 20, 2017, 08:13:29 AM »
It's funny how after all this time following this site and others, I finally discovered the @u2 forum. My brother and I have been diehards since 1981 when we first saw the lads on MTV(in its infancy!) doing "I Will Follow" from a club in Belfast, I believe. First show was The Unforgettable Fire in Pittsburgh, 1985. We discovered the joy of the GA line at Pittsburgh's 360 show. But the personal U2 highlight came during the IE tour. We were at MSG #1. Got to see Bono outside before the show. During soundcheck, Dallas gave the guitar pick to my 16 year old nephew, Tyler, who was at the absolute front of the house. We were 10 feet back on the rail. During COBL, Bono pulled my nephew onstage and hung out for a few minutes with Tyler while he sang. It was unbelievable. Looking forward to the Joshua Tree in Pittsburgh and Cleveland in a few weeks. I hope to meet a few of you all at those shows!

Thanks so much! U2 hangouts are great. I plan on having a great time those nights. You always end up making new friends during those GA line times.

Thanks for reaching out, I appreciate that. I will be going to Cleveland as well. Indiana isn't all that far from the Burgh. We will be around the North Shore on Tuesday afternoon for the duration so it would be very cool to get together.
