Can't wait.

Have seen them 14 times from 1987 onwards, will be adding another 5 shows this summer . So 19 by the end of the year ,but I wonder what is the world record, I saw some people on u2.com go to about 20 shows just on Vertigo !! Where they get the money who knows ??

Good lord!  Is that even possible.  You are a fan!

I have only seen them 12 times since I moved to the states in 1990.

Never seen one and right now my hometown cleveland is not on the list. But the local newspaper said they most likely will come here during the second leg between late fall and early to mid winter. If so i probly will be going.

Six from 1991 onwards. Sheffield this year will be #7. A small but nice collection including Zoo TV indoors and 2 shows on Elevation tour in 8 days (including 1 of those at Earls Court during the time Bono lost his father).

Popmart in the rain at Leeds was cool  :D

Missed the Joshua Tree / Lovetown tours though which I really regret :(
