I have been to right around 30 shows, though I've honestly lost count at this point.  It could be more or less.  My first concert was the original JT tour in '87 on the initial indoor leg.  I narrowly missed attending TUF concerts a couple of years before (had close friends who went).  I will be attending 4 more e + I shows this year.

Currently 9, will add 10 and 11 this year.

Vertigo - Dublin
360 - Dublin London Brussels
I+E - London x2 Dublin x2
Joshua Tree 2017 - London.

I was away on honeymoon when they played Europe on Joshua Tree 2017. Travelled to London the day after the wedding as that was the only show I could possibly make it to. Flew back to Ireland the next morning to catch the first flight of the honeymoon.

 I was also lucky enough to catch Bono at the Graffton st busking on Christmas eve and with Bruce Springsteen during his concert in Dublin.  I 'll be going to the Tuesday  Dublin Experience and Innocence tour.

18 or so.  Some of those early Elevation Tour shows are still my favorite where they played a good mix of 80s 90s and 00s tunes.  Bad, Kite, Gone, Discotheque, Stay, and The Fly in the same show? Yes, please!

Set up a U2 tours profile before you forget permanently.
