Home Made
Hand-made 360 stadiums, band portraits, fan-campaigns, we asked you what you've been building 'from the ground up' and you're posting content thick and fast.

There's five copies of the book,  signed by the band, going to the best entries and you've got until the end of March. (Don't forget to tag your image/video with #U2FTGU and mention @u2com /@u2comzoomods or @U2fTheGroundUp when you post it on twitter or youtube.)

Here's some of the entries so far, check out the gallery in Zootopia.

Baby Claw from Thomas Latour is pretty impressive.


Nine year old twins Keren & Adi worked for three days to build their own U2360 Stage.



Marcela Gonzalez in Colombia built her own  fan campaign.


BratBeef built a tower... from his personal collection of U2 releases.



TheGuitarPlayer556 was only five when he first heard Vertigo on the radio - and his clip explains why he remains a fan.

The 5 Sisters from Sydney
Sorry guys nothing beats the real thing. Baby Claw Baby shmaw!! We have been there from the start when we saw 4 very young boys on a barge singing Glory! What a glorious day that was. They stole our hearts in 1981 when most of you were not even born yet! We are the original U2 Fans Forever from the cradle to the grave. When we knew Bono before he wore his shades and when he had long hair. Oh yeah and Edge too. Dovidenja nashe brache! Bog!

Built the queue (Vincent Kearns)
I met Vincent (Vinny) in the queue for tickets for the 360 tour and was bowled over by his stories of starting queues for many years for tickets and albums queuing for days and through the cold nights. Through talking to him it was clear his passion and dedication for the band gets him through these long queues. I think he deserves one of these signed books - he'd be absolutely thrilled to get one!

Baby Claw
I agree with other posters. This was purely an amazing job well done. Blew me away to watch how meticulously spot on this project was in comparison to the real thing.

U2 used "my" photo
I just took delivery of "from the ground up" and I was so happy to find one of the photos I took at the gig in Sheffield was in the book along with my name in the credits. Thank you U2 you made my day for publishing it.....

Built the queue for the 360 tour ticket
I met Vincent Kearns while he was in the queue for the 360 tour tickets in Dublin. He started the queue 4 days before the tickets went on sale and sat on the sidewalk all this time exposed to the elements. He is such a loyal fan of the band and has always started the queue for tickets for a tour and for the release of an album at HMV in Grafton Street. He deserves one of these signed books for his true dedication.

Yep Indeedy.
Sure been in many a queue with Vincent whose comment is below, over the last 20 or so years, unfortunately HMV on Grafton Street in Dublin is gone now. It was were we queued for the Albums and tickets too before ticketmaster took over at the St. Stephens Green shopping centre.

Built the Queue for the 360 tour ticket
I started the Queue in Dublin at Ticket Master in St Stephens green shopping centre for the release of the tickets for the Dublin gigs in Croke Park. Spent 4 days sitting outside the store with another guy. By day 4 we had a few thousand people join us. I have being doing this for over twenty years now (starting the queue) for concert tickets and the release of new albums. And have met a lot of U2 fans over time and stayed in touch.
