Hi everyone! I am a long time fan. U2 is my mom's favorite band so I've been listening to them since I was in the womb. I can't even tell you how much their music means to me as it has literally saved my life several times. My sister and I decided to drop everything and fly out to Chicago at the last minute and our first show will be at Soldier Field on June 3, 2017. We are so excited and are coming regardless if we have tickets lined up beforehand or not. We will find a way but hopefully we can avoid scalpers.
"When we set out on this record it was Larry who came up with the plan not to have a plan. He put up this idea that wouldn’t it be great just to make music for its own sake, not for the purpose of a live show or on album but just to see what we’re capable of.."
