Had a great weekend!

(Repost from my old blog, accidentally posted it there first, and wondered why it didn’t show up on LJ, lol)

The fiance who was coming up for the weekend didn’t get here (he’s got a 2.5 hour drive from Concord) until around 2:30, so I had time in the early afternoon to record the feed for John Barrowman’s “Best Of Tonight’s The Night” off the BBC website. Will have to edit that down and add it to my JB website, but just didn’t have time over the weekend to do it. Read the rest of this entry »

U2 – It Was Twenty Five Years Ago This Month…

“… that I went to go see U2 live for the first time. March 7, 1985. My first concert ever, for The Unforgettable Fire tour, at the Cow Palace in Daly City, CA.”

Yes, I finally started the U2 page that I mentioned on one of my OTHER pages. Figured this was the 25th anniversary month of when I saw them live for the first time, that should be inspiration enough to start it.  That, and Amazing Race was delayed for nearly an hour tonight on CBS, I needed SOMETHING to do. 😀

Here be the linkie. Several photos and one marginal video up so far, spanning from the first show, to the start of the Elevation tour, with more to follow.

Oooh, and check out that HubbleSite Daily Image of Saturn. How cool is THAT!?!

U2 360 Tour Videos

Shot about an hour of footage each at both the Raleigh, NC and Foxboro, MA U2 shows, and after getting all hopped up this morning listening to the Croke Park remix of “I’ll Go Crazy”, went hunting down the few clips that I put online from both shows. There’s a couple on YouTube, a few on yFrog, and one or two over at U2.com.

“I’ll Go Crazy” remix from Raleigh

From my first trip inside the inner circle in Foxboro:

“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
Listen as 60,000+ people take over singing for the band. Incredible. One of my favorite clips, once the walkway scoots out of the way.



“Unforgettable Fire” (entire song)
I just about keel over watching Bono singing from the catwalk just feet away from me. Weee! :)



“Ultraviolet” from Foxboro, from where I posted it at U2.com:



And a couple of slideshows with some of my better pics, both from Foxboro, here and here.

All I can say is I be VERY happy that Doug and I splurged and got tickets for the last US show in NJ in June. LOVE knowing that we get to go and do this one more time this year. :)
