Welcome to my U2 weblog. This is where I share my experiences about the Irish band. If you want to comment you can use the guestbook or contact form. Enjoy!

 

15 May: Vancouver, Rogers Arena


The thrill will never be gone
For the second U2 concert in Vancouver we decide not to queue as early as we did for the first concert. At 7:30 am we arrive at the 'GA line’. We get numbers 122 and 123. Later that is corrected to 97 and 98 because some people have not returned to the line. Again the atmosphere is relaxed. It is cooler than the day before, but the weather is still nice.

14 May: Vancouver, Rogers Arena


First experiences

Finally, it is May 14, 2015: the day of the opening of the U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE TRogers Arenaour 2015. At 6 am we report at the GA line. People from all over the world travelled to the Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The atmosphere is relaxed. Around 3 pm security moves the line to the actual entrance. That goes smoothly. Before the doors open manager Guy Oseary comes out. He talks with several fans and takes photos. At 6:15 pm the doors finally open.

Meeting Bono


Tuesday 12th May I arrive in Vancouver. After checking in to my hotel I immediatly go to the Rogers Arena. I meet some people who I met at previous gigs. Cool! We are waiting at the arena hoping to attend the dress rehearsal for the U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015. Or to catch a glimpse of the band members. Unfortunately, this does not happen. At about 10.45 pm I return to my hotel exhausted. The next day I find out that Adam appeared at 1.20 am. I was sound asleep by then. The next morning I decide to explore Vancouver a bit. In the afternoon I am going to the arena again. Meanwhile Jean-Paul - with whom I will attend the concerts - has arrived. We get our number for the GA line: 141 and 142. We have to be there that night between 10 pm and 11 pm and 6 am on concert day to prevent getting our names taken of the list. After this we decide to wait for the possible arrival of band members. Suddenly - by then it is about 8.15 pm I think - Brian (Bono's bodyguard) appears. He asks us to remain calm and line up on both sides of the entrance. After some more waiting the Irish frontman appears. We are first in line, but unfortunately he starts signing stuff at the other side of the line. Finally he gets to us and signs two of my cd booklets. Jean-Paul has him sign his new tourbook and Bono is quit impressed by the book. "What is this? It's brilliant!" Apparantly he had not seen the book yet, allthough he signed Lia's copy about a minute before. We cannot pose for photos, but we are very happy with the signatures of and a little chitchat with Bono. This trip to Vancouver is already memorable.

Vancouver here I come!


Two more sleeps until I fly to Vancouver for the opening of the U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015 in the Rogers Arena. I will be attending both shows, so looking forward to it. As usual I will write reviews and take photos. When I am in Vancouver I will try to post some stuff to the Facebook page. When I am back in Holland I will update this site.

 

Wanted: Amsterdam 4


We have bought and traded tickets so we are now able to go to three shows of the U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour 2015 in Amsterdam. We are still looking for hard copy standing tickets for Amsterdam 4 (13th September). Are you able to help us? Please send a message by using the contactform.

 

Record Store Day


Today I managed to grab one of the 5,000 copies (worldwide) of the Record Store Day edition of Songs Of Innocence. I have got number 4893. So happy!

Stress All Because Of U2


These are stressful times for U2 fans: can I buy tickets, does my presale code work, will the ticketsite crash? The U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour takes place in smaller arenas which means more stress because there are less tickets. When we heard that the presale for the gigs in the Ziggo Dome was pretty chaotic we decided Friday to use André's presale code as well. Unfortunately by then the standing tickets for Amsterdam were already sold out. We went for Antwerp standing tickets instead and got them.

This morning the general sales started for a lot of shows. Way before 9 am we were ready to buy tickets for Cologne. A miracle happened: André succeeds and buys tickets for both shows. I was not so lucky unfortunately. An hour later tickets for the Amsterdam gigs went on general sale. Way before 10 am there was a waiting line on the Ticketmaster website. But miracle number two occurred: André manages to buy four standing tickets for the second gig. Such a relief! I am sure we will be able to swap two of these for the first gig. Do you wanna swap (only standing tickets, hard copy), please fill in the contact form.

 

U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE in Vancouver


Just got the first tickets for the U2 iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour through the U2.com presale. I am going to the two opening gigs in Vancouver. Such a relief after all the stories about presales gone wrong on Twitter and Facebook. Hopefully we will be able to buy tickets for Amsterdam, Cologne and Antwerp as well. Fingers crossed!
