Long Time Follower...First Time Poster
« on: August 04, 2011, 11:45:59 AM »
Hello U2 fans and fanatics!

I've been following your discussions for years and check in with @U2 often for information and rumors on my favorite band.

I've been a U2 fan since the day my dad purchased a CD player, brought home his first two discs and I popped in the one with the four guys in black and white...one who seemed not to know where the camera was.  The music swelled and "I want to run..." came through the speakers.  It's still my favorite song.

Several attempts to see them on the Elevation and Vertigo tours were twarted but I saw them open the North American leg of the 360 Tour in Chicago (9-12-2009) and was singing in the rain in Minneapolis (7-23-2011) as the tour wound down.  I own all of the concert DVDs and CDs but had to wait 22 years to see and hear them in person.

I'm looking forward to joining the community.  I'm likely to continue spending more time in the background reading everyone else's thoughts but decided the time was right to turn on Zoo TD.

Welcome to the forum Zoo TD! We hope you enjoy your time here. I also had some obstacles getting to the Elevation and Vertigo Tours but enjoyed 2 shows on the 360 Tour at the Meadowlands. The last one this past July 20th was off the charts amazing!  ;D It is so funny you mention the 22 years....I have been a fan since they came to the USA all those years ago but my 360 show in 2009 was 22 years since I saw them on the Joshua Tree Tour !! We have tour experiences in common!!
