    U2 Radio is fantastic on Sirius.  Although they play a lot of that new album where they stripped down a bunch of old songs.  I'm not a huge fan of those renditions.

    Totally getting FOMO with the sphere shows, just put in the draw for 26 or 27th.  Fingers crossed.  My U2 membership runs out in 10 days.. lol.

    It’s quite the spectacle isn’t it!? I am pretty floored by what I’ve seen.

    Just had to cancel my trip for this week and Wednesday's show. Dog is in the hospital.
    Put in for presale for new run, hoping they come through.

    Thanks. Hopefully coming home today (unfortunately with one less eye).

    Got GA for Feb. 3 in the presale. So another 3+ month wait, but it will be worth it.

    Sorry to hear about your dog. At least he is coming home. I have seen a few dogs and cats with one eye and they seem to adjust well.

    Hopefully she'll be fine. We'll see how the recovery goes. She's older (14. will be 15 in March) but has always been like a puppy. Never had a single medical issue until this recent eye issue.
    Side note: when we picked her up earlier at Angell Memorial, Tom Hamilton and his wife were sitting next to us in the waiting area after an appointment with their dog.

    U2.com presale registration open till tomorrow, general sale Friday.

    Nice, I'm superstoked to be going to the first show of the January shows.   I'm not sure how many big bands left out there I'd want to play the Sphere, so going pretty early on to see U2 seems like a good life choice.  Especially when the set is geared around on my my all time favourite albums.

    I’m going next Wednesday can’t wait!

    Just got back to hotel after the show tonight! I’ve seen probably 400-500 concerts and tonight’s U2 show is the best performance I’ve been lucky to have witnessed, I was filled with so much emotions thinking about my mother & my friends who are no longer in this life with me the sound the visuals were spectacular! I’m not going to forget tonight ever!

    That’s incredible Jose. So happy you had a blast. I’ve heard nothing but great things and I’m not surprised. U2 and Pj have always been tied for my favorites.

    Yeah i wasn’t expecting it to make me feel such high emotions, last time I saw the band was back in November 2001 two months after the towers were destroyed, MSG benefiting families of NYPD & NYFD and that was really an emotional show too, last night was just perfect I did miss Larry behind the kit but the new dude which even Bono had a hard time pronouncing his name is really good! If you have the means I’d recommend seeing them in this setting! Poncier hope you have a blast!
