I waited for amost 20 years to see U2 live, and it was wonderful. Absolutely awe-inspiring. I don't know how those guys have kept up the energy and remained together all these years, but they've certainly become good at it. Mr. eejm and I are going again in June.
U2 was my first concert. I saw them with my mom on the Unforgettable Fire tour. Ironically, I forget what year that was, lol. Maybe 1984? Somewhere around there. It was pretty awesome. We were in the 12th row. I was a HUGE U2 fan, plus I was a little bit in love with Larry Mullen.
*whines* Oh, Unforgettable Fire, how COOL! I loved that album (although it was kind of short) I had that song stuck in my head last week for some reason. I had so many near misses in seeing them over the years (starting with the Zoo TV Tour, I think, because I was only about 15 and my mom wouldn't let me go) that it was something of a personal victory to finally, finally see them on the Vertigo Tour in 2005. Weirdly enough, when we see them in June, it'll be the first time I've seen a band more than once in concert.
I'm an Edge girl myself. He seems like a guy I'd like to hang out.
A few groups I haven't seen yet that I'd like to:
Big Head Todd and the Monsters (even though they tour constantly and have been in my area umpteen times, I still haven't managed to see them)
And groups I'd have loved to have seen, but they broke up or someone died:
INXS (w/Michael Hutchence)
