It Was Divine
So... About the only way to describe how much this wonderful experience means to me is to say that I held out on having a critical surgery just so I could attend. Now, as I lay here at the beginning of my recovery I truly get how thankful I am for having just enough health remaining in my body to attend this concert with my brother before my surgery; as well as how thankful I am for my medical team for, not only saving the day again with another successful surgery, but also for their compassion in understanding how much joy this concert would give me forever; and, how such joy would benefit me in my recovery. So, from seeing Onerepublic deliver an amazing performance in the middle of a storm, to the beautiful rainbow that glowed over the stadium as they closed their impressive set, to the last drop of rain that cleared the way for U2 to deliver this eternal joy with such atmospheric depth, meaning, and beauty, the experience was divine. I'm thankful beyond words for this experience, and that my brother was alongside me for every second of it. While I face a challenging recovery, I now do so with the blessing of this divine peace and warmth lighting my way.

Amazing Show
The first time I saw U2 live was the first Joshua Tree tour when I was 30 years younger. Since then I have seen every tour, some multiple times, and even a surprise show under the Brooklyn Bridge. This one was truly the most memorable, though, not only because I was a few feet from the band but because they really celebrated their amazing history as a band through countless classics.

Rainbow to the rescue in Tampa
Amazing Night, we survived heat, humidity, thunder, lightening and rain... But was all worth the blissful music in the end

Two days later....
I'm still watching my videos and looking at my pics from the Tampa show. Still smiling, still getting chills, still welling up at the beautiful imagery. Perfect show.

Dreams can come true
I don't have a photo yet, but as soon as I get them I will be posting them up. What I do have is a short story and a dream. For as long as I can remember, my dream has been to see U2 in Dublin, but if you would have asked me 5 years ago, if I ever would have imagined that dream coming true, I would have probably had said no with tears in my eyes. U2 has been my most beloved band, probably since I was a baby. My mom would play your music all the time, so I think I got to hear you even from within he womb. By the time that Joshua tree came out, I was 5 and I remember singing or moving to every song that came out from that Album. It was by far my favorite one. When I heard you were doing a 30th Anniversary tour, I about fell over. I ran to the computer and started desperately searching for tickets. I was originally looking for either tickets in my hometown of Miami, but something made me check to see where you would be for my birthday in July. And then I saw it. You guys were going to be playing in your hometown 2 days before my birthday! The prices were way higher than what I would have paid in Miami (thanks to 2nd party price gauging), but there was a little voice inside of me that asked, when will you get this chance again? So I did it!! I used up a chunk of my student loan money back in January to buy the tickets, lol. (I know, please don't judge me) But how could I put a price tag on that experience?! To make the matters even more interesting and endearing for me, I have also recently found out that I will be a first time mom. I will be roughly around 4 months pregnant for this concerns! At first I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to go, but then my doctor reassured me that everything should be fine. So, not only will I be living my dream of seeing you play in your hometown of Dublin, Ireland, but I will also be continuing a family tradition of introducing my little one to your music, while they are still my my womb... Dreams most certainly do come true...

First U2 Concert <3
This was my first ever U2 show and it was a night to remember forever! I loved the set with all the beautiful effects, especially the rainbow colored Joshua Tree. It was a gorgeous, incredible way to remember the album that changed my life at age 5 in 1988. Pride was the first song I heard and I have been hooked ever since! I love U2 and am a die-hard, devoted fan! I cried when Bono talked about the Pulse nightclub shooting-after a year it still hurts very much to think about it. He was wonderful and so sweet! It was flaming hot in the early afternoon then it rained heavily. Though I got very wet it was so worth the wait and after the flood all the colors came out! It was definitely the most beautiful day I've ever had! <3

IN TO THE HEART (of Syria)
I cried through this set of imagery. Such a powerful show. I feel proud when I'm part of a U2 show because of the activism they try to instill. My heart is full after each and every show knowing the message is out there... ❤️

Full circle
My daughter was born the day Joshua Tree was released. I went to the 12/5/87 concert in Tampa in 30 degree weather. It was such a magical night no one cared. Last night it was raining and my daughter came with me. It was a magical night and no one cared if they got wet. The music is as fresh and relevant as it was 30 years ago!

What a show! So glad I was able to bring my son to this show, his first concert, to see a great band that has always meant so much to me personally. Your music has always been so positive in spirit and message. Many blessings to you and your families.

I finally get to bring my daughter to a U2 show!!! I have been a fan for 40 years and as she would tell it-she has been hearing U2 her entire life and now she gets to see them! In addition to my daughter I have recruited 3 others to see them for the first time - we are a Party of 8 on the field and will be rocking out in the back! Thanks U2 for giving me so many special moments to reflect on with others. PS - This will be my 105th show - I like be you!!!

From baby
Dear U2, I watched the Perioscope of Miami. I was there, for JT, in '87, in Atl. I want to end with LThings, or even better, ASOH, or best, 40. Like in '87. I want to leave with, How long...ringing in my head. Like in '87. Driving to Tampa from Atl in a few hours to be with you. Love you guys

My first U2 concert!
So excited to go see my favorite band for the first time! Coming from Orlando and going with my uncle who introduced me to U2's music back in 2009. Didn't think I could make it, but I found tickets just about a week ago and now I'm going!

This is going to be a very special tour
This will be my forth time (1992,2001,2011). I missed seeing you guys in 1987. I believe this tour is going to be something very special and magical through out. My hope is that this tour is being recorded and will be released on Blu-ray and some of the B-sides of Joshua Tree get some love in the set lists. I just figure if we don't get a chance to hear the B-sides and Heartland on this tour we will never get to hear them. Also, we in Tampa would love to hear A Sort Of Homecoming & Bad. Thank You, for making this tour happen !
