    Going to U2 tomorrow!

    Post by shabbs on Wed Sep 16, 2009 7:07 pm

    Going to see U2 tomorrow night. Can't wait. I have never seen them live so I could not pass this opportunity up. Heading down with a bunch of buddies... we're on the floor so it should be some nice madness.

    I remember having "Joshua Tree" on tape and playing it until the tape wore out. The first tape I bought by them was "War" and by the time "Joshua Tree" rolled around I was sold.

    I saw them when they came here last time. Always an incredible show from an incredible band. Have a great time. They generally pick a somewhat eclectic opening act though.

    I think Snow Patrol is opening for them here... a band I do like.

    I went to see Paul McCartney last month in Washington DC and he was absolutely awesome. I'm sure U2 will be great as well!

    Unbelievable concert last night. 60,000 people packed into Rogers Centre, the dome was open, the CN Tower was light up, the stage was monstrous and U2 was amazing. Wow! I'm so hung over and tired this morning. Damn. What a great concert.

    I love u2, but I can't stand bono. I wanted to shove those sunglasses up his arse when he came to Canada and endorsed Paul Martin.

    Go feed the starving children and stay out of our Diddling politics you mic! (Before anyone gets offended, im a mic Razz)

    HA HA! He certainly likes to flex his political muscles...

    As a side note... yesterday was the 6-month mark until St. Patrick's Day.

    I understand the attraction to the performance that U2 provides (being that they put out millions for their stage set up) and that alone would be worth seeing....

    But man do I ever hate U2. Their music is awful, and bono is just a plug. That's all.

    It was ill-advised to say the least.
