In memory of our Edge..
I have been a fan since I was in grade school. We named our baby boy after The Edge...He was too perfect for earth and joined our creator after giving us 7 months of his life here. It would be a delight to see Bono, Edge and the rest of the band sing their best songs live. It would be a very special moment for us too. I will listen to each of your songs by heart and think about our boy in heaven. Thank you for the wonderful music. I wish you could sign my Joshua Tree cassette tape.

Hi, I’d like to share a short story of serendipity with the band. I’m Shirin, from Manila, Philippines. It means a lot to have U2 come to my hometown. About a decade ago in September 2010, I took my dad to celebrate both our birthdays at your 360 gig in the Olympic Stadium Munich and also have beers at the October Fest. It was an extraordinary experience and I have been following the band since I was a kid. However, the preselling dates for Manila on your website happened at a time when I was away on fieldwork and had no access to the internet. I work as an editorial consultant for an NGO covering stories of dire cases of children along isolated areas in the Philippines. A close friend felt sorry for me and vowed to stay online the whole day to help secure the VIP tickets, (because it is the only one I can afford at the time). So after a decade, my friend was able to purchase two tickets for my birthday. I’m really excited. The only downside is, dad is older now in his mid-70s, and doesn’t have the stamina to be standing in the pit like he used to. He is also looking after my mom, who is quite ill. Despite all this, I still look forward to the show and be uplifted by your music which has been a constant source of hope and inspiration throughout my life. xox attached photo below/ can send one with my dad too :)

U2 me are everything
From the day I bought my first vinyl albums (War and Under A Blood Red Sky) of you guys back in '84, I was hooked. Since then, I've been dreaming of watching you live. Thought it will just be a dream and be overly content to listen to your live album in my living room. Thank you for finally considering to make a lot of your fans' dream here in the Philippines to come true.

Another dream ticked off in my bucket li
I have a team of millenials at work. They all laughed and loved how I explained a dream is coming true in just watching watching a concert. But it's a U2 concert! The first in the Philippines. About to tick off something in my vision board. I taught my "kids" how to make vision boards posted infront of them... to make them remember why they come in to work everyday. To make dreams come true in their lives. Thank you, U2! To BONO, We are doing OKRs now with my "kids".... John Doerr style... To change a part of the world in their work. They are loving it! Hope I can get a short shout out video from you to change their lives forever.

This time in my homeland
I had the chance to watch you live in Chicago during your Vertigo tour in 2005. I was crying. I said to myself, I would definitely watch you again live if you choose to perform in the Philippines! When friends told me that you are coming to South Korea and Singapore, they were asking if I’d watch. But I made vow that I will watch again if you play in the Philippines. And, tben tje announcement came! I will be there, I will definitely be there on December 11. Excited!!!

Overwhelmed at the opportunity.
It's been a lifelong dream of mine to see you guys live! The Joshua Tree album was released the year I was born (1987). Now 32 years later, this is my one chance. I'm pulling overtime and double shifts and saving up every penny I have to go to Manila!

After all these long days of the Joshua
been a fan of U2 since a boy at 11 during the War album era that got cemented when The Joshua Tree came out got saved on St Patrick's day turns out before i turn 13, I'd no idea then they were a christian band The great thing about the Joshua Tree lp is that it brought back the sensibilities of musicians playing on a record album as it destroyed the norm of cheap electronic synthesizer infested production that are conventional back in the 1980s all the more reason to celebrate with the revamped Joshua Tour that been sorely missed in the Philippines
