I have been obsessed with U2 since I first saw the cover of the War album

CREEPY.

The image intrigued me, thats all I was saying. I was fascinated by the scared as s*** look on the boys face and the blood red lettering on the stark black and white photograph.

oh ok that's not bad then. PHEW.

It was that shadowy boob behind Bono on the Achtung cover that hooked me....

That's a complete fabrication. Geldof was NOT on the Achtung Baby cover.

Well, seeing as I'm starting to get cranky and complaining like everyone else on here, then I'd say I've finally become a REAL FAN. But I am not going to bother to look up how to make a trademark symbol on my laptop. :P

I went to another country to see them play. In most other fandoms that would count but since this is the U2 fandom... :'(

yea i'm not a true fan cuz i live in dallas and had never contemplated leaving the state to see them play <ive traveled to Austin in 01 to see em for my 2nd time> but i decided since they arent coming to Texas period that i'd go with 2 other people to Denver. So am i a real fan or not a real fan? I'd really rather not make the trip...........but im going to, and hoping, on the off chance, that they play EBTTRT, OTH, HMTM

being self employed means i dont get vacation time, and i'm not exactly well off financially so i have to be picky.

Since they have chosen to not play in my state at all, I'm leaving my state 4, maybe 5, times. (Still working on Denver.)

I'm waiting for an arena tour where U2 play lots of brand new experimental music and lots of rarities from their back catalogue.

I'll leave the greatest hits shows in stadiums to the casual fans.
