Protesting at a U2 gig?
« on: May 15, 2009, 09:26:04 AM »
Did anyone encounter those protestors at the Vertigo shows?  They kept saying if we go inside and listen to some rock and roll that we're going to hell.  What was up with those guys?

It was one guy he had a bull horn and a sign.  He was saying stuff like "U2 are the devil".   The drunk girl in front of us was arguing with him, it was hilarious.

In Boston, the same nut protests outside every concert, regardless of the type of music!

Please everyone, write to Amnesty International to stop the Black Eyed Peas performing on the west coast.

Did they show up at more than one vertigo show? 

Seems like there are protesters everywhere, for every reason!!  Some people just need to lighten up and have a good time.

What's so wrong with the Black Eyed Peas from performing?  I for one will not write to them just because a few people don't agree with the opening act.   They're just an opening act, not part of the show.  If you don't like it show up later or go have a beer.  I wasn't to thrilled when hearing about the Kings of Leon but after hearing them live, I enjoyed it.

I know the protestors where at several shows from what I read.  What was interesting about that guy was that he said we would go to hell and rock and roll is evil, I don't think he even listened to U2.  He got everyone riled up especially the girl in front of me.  I was like how can this guy declare U2 evil especially with a song called Where The Streets Have No Name.  They even go to wrestling events and protest.

This is one cause I will not only fight for, but I will die for as well.

These people make me crazy!!!  Wonder What they think of "yeweh" or "40", or "magnifient", clearly they have not listened to any of u2's songs that are praising the very God that they think will send us all to hell!!

These people can be quiet entertaining. They really should considering listening to U2. I think they would actually like their lyrics. It would be interesting to see if these people pop up at any of the shows this tour.
