If so, they'll be in NYC and I can get there! Come on U2.com!!!!

Dear Dave,

If you are free and can get to New York on Sunday (4PM - 7PM) or Monday (4PM - 7PM), you and a friend could be a guest of U2.com at a special U2 performance.

So if you are prepared to wrap up warm and brave the elements for this unique event, please reply using this form indicating which night you'd like to come and if you will be bringing a friend. Please also include your U2.com details.

YOU MUST REPLY BY 5PM EST FRIDAY.

We have a limited number of places available and these will be chosen at random from those who reply.

If your name is selected you'll receive an email, later on Friday, with instructions on where you need to be and when. And on Sunday or Monday, you and your guest will get to see the band play.


best wishes
The U2.com Team.

I didn't get selected for the U2 by U2 book signing so I hope I have better luck this time!  It just so happens our winter break (I teach HS) starts Monday so it couldn't be better timing.  No winter storm in the forecast either!

I am a bit confused by the "please include your U2.com details" part.  There is no place on the page to do this, although you do have to be signed into your u2.com account to access the page so I'm guessing my answers to which day and guest questions are tagged with my details.

It also seems to take multiple "entries" so I did 2, one for Sunday and one for Monday.  I don't think bombarding them with 100's of submissions will help.

Well, I doubt it's a press conference. It says performance. It's still pretty damn exciting. Guy's influence again no doubt. I wonder if he's read the posts here about U2.com membership "perks".

My thoughts....

I'm thinking they want to do a promotion and rehearse for JF on Sunday.  The Monday performance may be for JF but I doubt it only because it says that you have to be prepared to wrap up and be warm and brave the elements.  So not sure why U2 would want to play outside in this weather but if I'm selected I will be surely be there!  There may be another announcement....tour, possibly.

Maybe waiting outside in line for performance inside....I guess that is a possibility too.

there's no way they'd do this just because.
