This was something i can never forget...
By that time worked as bar tender in a club.After work went to the port were the concert would take place(08:00 a.m) and waited all day to get in the front and enjoy the band really close.The time of my life.I waited for this moment for years...I was so tired but when i heard the first notes of "mofo",i forgot everything!I just wished the concert would last for ever! Went to Ireland last summer to watch them in Dublin!Dublin is like Mekka for us U2 fans.We just have to go at least once during our life to watch there the group to perform live. Now they are back in Greece and got my RED ticket since October 2009.Can't wait for the moment.

IT WAS THE TIME OF MY LIFE , THE GREATEST CONCERT I'VE EVER BEEN, THE GREATEST GIG.THE BAND WAS GREAT, ALTHOUGH BONO WAS SUFFERED WITH HIS VOICE FROM THE SARAJEVO CONCERT(BUT THE GREEK DOCTORS DID AN ECXELLANT WORK ) I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON IN ATHENS!!!

Limani Thessaliniki U2 one and only conc
I was one of the 50.000 lucky ones that was in that concert in Greece, Thessaloniki. The whole thing was amazing , i didn't have to prove myself that U2 was the best band , but this concert was something else, moved every one even if they were U2 fans or not. From the background of the show was that 20 trucks caring the shows material were stopped and couldn't pass the borders from Sarajevo, because of our clerks strike. Finally and after government's efforts the trucks passed and made it to the Limani site where the concert took place. Among the songs I can remember are: Mofo Mysterious Ways Running to stand still One Pride Desire Bullet the Blue Sky Lemon I still haven't found what I'm looking for Discotheque Sunday bloody Sunday Sugar sugar (karaoke with Edge) Also two artists played before U2 on that concert 'Eco Tatoo' and 'Nikos Portokaloglou', both of them were marvelous and very enthusiastic. We have been warmed up moment by moment and As I can remember every time an artist was starting to play we were moving forward like a big mass trying to break through the stage. When 'Eco Tatoo' started we move forward dancing and singing, when Nikos Portolaloglou came arround we moved forward dancing like a furius big mass , and I couldn't believe that we could go forward any more. But when U2 showed up I think I have made more than 20 steps forward with my hands up like all the others I could see. I wan't now to see them again, to see how this grate feeling is to be born again or not. some links I have found is from greek press: (Kathimerini ,26/9/1997, page 12) http://www.kathimerini.gr/4dcgi/_w_articles_kathuseful_flag26frame1_03/09/2009_1288312 (Kathimerini ,27/9/1997, page 6) http://www.kathimerini.gr/4dcgi/_w_articles_kathuseful_flag27frame1_03/09/2009_1288312
