I find U2's music to be more of a personal experience which I really don't know if it can be disected and broken down in a conference. But that's probably just me. I've been to so many conferences for work that have bored the hell out of me that I would rather just sit back and listen to Zooropa like I did tonight then talk about the band for a 8 hours. But for those that are going I hope you all have fun.

I wonder what U2 thinks about fans who attend U2 conferences?  ???
dunno, but bono gave us a shout out at the raleigh concert ;) 

and yeah, initially, it was a bit surreal hearing music professors discuss the compositional principles behind U2's music.  i thought those discussions were fascinating (cuz i'm a degree-toting music geek with some audio training), but most of my regular music professors were too high-brow to acknowledge that anything in the pop genre would have any value...

MG - BBQ sounds cool!! We may get to see the new house if it works out.

A few of us are "rooming" together to help on costs. I'm planning on flying in on April 25th and leaving the 28th.

I'm pretty sure U23D will be playing since they know we are all coming that weekend! That's a must-see for us all.

Wow I'm getting even more excited about this. I thought I was excited a few months ago but now I'm even more excited!!

I really love U2 but jeez......a conference? I guess I haven't reached that level of super duper fandom yet.

I can understand that. I just know I really regret not having gone to the first one because everyone I know who was there had a blast. I am also going to connect with some friends, some of whom I haven't met yet.

I am flying out but we can definitely hang together. I would be sad if we didn't.

:) I can't commit this far out with the kids' schedules. It's a 5.5 hr drive, so I'll likely drive if I go.

I go back and forth on whether to fly or drive. . . if I drove I could pick up jab. . .

To save on fuel maybe you could park in my driveway then we drive the U2 diva-mobile the rest of the way? Just throwing that out there... ;)

It seems wrong not to drive a vehicle whose plates say U2DIVA to a U2 conference...

U2 conference sounds... kind of boring, but it would be very fun to have a meet up. Unfortunately I know my schedule would never work out to go all the way to Cleveland in April. :o Even though I'd love to go there sometime. I hope everyone who's going has fun!

Actualy, some of the essays being presented sound like interesting topics... hm. It's one thing to write and present one and another thing to listen to other people's presentations, though. Not sure if I could pay attention that long.

Hi folks!

I live in Dayton, OH. Anyone driving up I-71 N or I-75 N, please keep me in mind to let me hitch a ride  ;D. Of course, I will contribute for gas $$ and expenses! I'm a single female traveller.
