From London to Toronto and Back
I remember that it was very cold and my seats were at the far end of the stadium up high, but it is something I will never forget. A bunch of us took a bus tour from London, Ontario and back that night. We sang "40" the entire way home on the bus. Highlight of the night for me was "Bullet the Blue Sky", it wasn't one of my favourites before the show but became afterwards. I was 18 at the time and have now seen 11 shows and holding tickets for the cancelled show in Anaheim June 6th. Can't wait to see them again.

Was it cold?
This was the first concert I ever attended. I was 15 and tried desperately to win tickets. My Dad came home with a pair. I had just started listening to U2 but did not know them well. The show was amazing. Los Lobos opened. Bono had his arm in a sling. That night changed my life forever. My dad and I walked for hours after the show to find the car. I don't remember being cold. Must have been the burning love I was first experiencing for this amazing band.

# 2 for me
I was 16...and it was a cold one but loved every minute of it. I'll see number 10 in July and this time with general admission I plan on seeing them close up and personal for the 1st time...I love my boys!

yeah it was cold....
was my first u2 concert as well, we took the train from Halifax, boy was that painful. It was an amazing show to say the least. I actually saw a buddy of mine( that I hadnt seen in 10 years) on the screen in the center, but it would be another 15 years before I could contact him (facebook). Have seen U2 five times since and got my tickets for the summer 2010 tickets in toronto. My wife and I are trying to get close to the stage for once.....wish us luck

First Time U2
Great show in a stadium that was torn down a few years later. Bono had his arm in a slinge because he fell from the Marshall speaker stacks in a prior show. Still a wonderful fall evening spent with my friends down by Lake Ontario. Joshua Tree remains my favorite album. Saw them again in '97 at Skydome (now Rogers Centre) and then in Madison Square Gardens in 2005 and Giants Stadium in 2009. What a great journey it has been. I look forward to seeing the band in Paris Sept. 2010!
