My first U2-concert!
Me and my friend Bjørn went from Copenhagen, Denmark, on a bus filled with Danish U2-aficionados to Eriksberg, Gothenburg! I remember it rained all day and Bono included Beatles´Rain as an intro and outro to I still haven´t found - amazing :-) I got goosebumps when Sunday Bloody Sunday was played! I also remember Bono talking to the good people from Amnesty International who was present that day...Bono also made a long and interesting intro to Bad...I still got my t-shirt from that day as a dear and fond memory of an outstanding concert!
My second U2 concert :)
I remember my second concert with U2.The place was Gothenburg "Eriksbergs Shipyard (06-06-87) with dressing Lone Justice, Big Audio Dynamite and The Pretenders.It had rained all the time, so it was soaking wet :( But when it was time for U2 to enter the stage, we forget the pouring rain !! I stood on a hill to the right, When the intro to "Where The Streets Have No Name ... from the speakers' Bono enters the cowboy hat and brown vest. I remember the crowd swayed in time ... And I've had goosebumbs :)
It was my first U2 concert too!
It was my first U2 concert too and I loved it, as I remember it was raining but you didn’t think about it during the concert. I never bought a t-shirt but I did buy those pictures that was taken from a helicopter, 4 pictures of Bono and 1 picture of the scene and all the people. But unfortunately the pictures are missing, it might be that I had a moment of insanity ant throw them away . Anyway my last U2 concert was also 360° in Gothenburg . And soon, very soon I will travel to see 360° in Helsinki, and I’m really looking forward to it. See you there!
My first U2 concert
Travelling from Finland to Gothenburg Sweden to see U2 was an experience for 17-years old boy. I had been a true fan of U2 since I heard Under A Blood Red Sky in 1983. I remember feeling surreal to see the band live. Bono and other guys there in front of me in flesh and blood. And yes, the concert was truly magnificent. I still proudly wear 2 of my Joshua Tree tour t-shirt I bought 23 years ago. I have worn those precious pieces of fabric only when I am at the U2 concert. Latest was 360 in 2009, also in Gothenburg. The next time I put on my distinctively tight piece of fabric will be in Helsinki 2010. Believe it or not the shirts still fit me ;-) See you in Helsinki in August. ps. Bono, get your back well soon!
