A dream has almost come true....
Three years ago when U2 were in New York for their I&E tour, I waited with countless other fans to meet them on July 18, 2015. When Bono came out, he signed my sign and Billie Holiday postcard. I am so shy, but I wrestled up the courage to tell him that I am U2's #1 fan (everyone says that), that I grew up in Harlem, and wished that they'd come perform at the Apollo Theatre. When I met Edge, I also asked him about the Apollo. Today while at work, I received a text from a friend informing me that U2 will perform at the Apollo this June (sponsored by Sirius). I want to be there! I've seen them in different cities, but the Apollo would be my fondest memory, for sure! I grew up not too far from the Apollo, and U2's music has inspired me, given me hope, as well as entertained me. I have to be there!! Romona (aka angelofharlem4u2).

I wish they would play Liverpool again.  I was a young child when they played Liverpool on my birthday in 1981 and so had not heard of them at the time.  The venue they played at (Royal Court) has been reverted back to a working theatre since the opening of the arena in the area.  There are other venues similar to how the Royal Court used to be and it would be great if they could play Liverpool again on my birthday.  A smaller venue would be nice, but the Echo Arena would be good too.

Maybe Jimmy Fallon's Band can assist with Angel of Harlem and When Love Comes To Town.

Yes, The Roots.  I'm pretty disconnected from that scene, but I do remember a fantastic Angel of Harlem collaboration some years back.

Great performance. I think they might have to rehearse for this on tour if they are going to pull out some special tunes. Reminds me of 2009 Rock Hall and 2015 Roxy gigs.
