I'm 45. I have seen the following 7 shows:

1992 - Pacific Coliseum, Vancouver w/ The Pixies
This was a hard show for me. I was so used to the Rattle & Hum film. I didn't quite get the "new U2" thing . . . yet.
1992 - BC Place Stadium, Vancouver w/ The Sugarcubes and Public Enemy (!)
A rather strange pairing of groups. By this stage I was a full on fan of Achtung Baby and i LOVED this show!
1997 - BC Place Stadium, Vancouver w/ Smashmouth
This is my favorite U2 show. Ironically, I'm still not sure I fully "get" the POP album - but the TOUR was something else!
2001 - GM Place (now know as "Roger's Arena", Vancouver w/ PJ Harvey
Great, high energy show.
2005 - GM Place, Vancouver w/ Kings Of Leon
It's funny, I didn't think too much of KOL. They were good but I thought "They'll never last" . . . about two months after the show I see them on the cover of Rolling Stone, Mojo etc. . . shows what I know!
2009 - BC Place Stadium, Vancouver w/ Black-Eyed Peas
I loved this tour. Bill Gates was apparently at this gig and Bono had the crowd sing "Happy Birthday" to him.
2017 - BC Place Stadium, Vancouver w/ Mumford & Sons
I thought this was a good show but I didn't quite grab the magic for me . . . The setlist has obviously been discussed extensively. I'm happy to have been at this one. Looking forward to the next tour.

An eclectic mix, very nice!

Age 44.
17 shows.
Every tour since 1992 (age 19) bc I wasn't allowed to go to concerts before that. I'm pretty sure all my shoes have been in the following cities:

Rose Bowl
Anaheim
LA
Dallas
Miami
NYC
Meadowlands, New Jersey
Honolulu

 Last weekend was the first time I had ever seen them 2 nights in a row.
