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!



Songs Of Innocence

Today Songs Of Innocence was deliverd: the deluxe edition and vinyl. I love the acoustic versions, especially Every Breaking Wave and Cedarwood Road. Hopefully the acoustic versions will make the setlist on the next tour.

Time Magazine

I live in a tiny town so it was a huge surprise that the local bookstore had a copy of Time Magazine with the U2 interview and cover. That saves me a lot of postage.

New album: Songs Of Innocence

During an Apple event yesterday U2 - totally unexpected - released a new album: Songs of Innocence. There were a lot of rumours about this event and U2's role but this exceeded all expectations. Everyone with an iTunes account can download the album for free until October 13th. Then U2 will release the physical copy of the album. And there will be another album released soon according to Bono: "If you like Songs of Innocence, stay with us for Songs of Experience. It should be ready soon enough… although I know I’ve said that before…" I cannot wait. Songs of Innocence is an amazing and personal album. My favorites (so far) are: The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone), Cedarwood Road, Iris (Hold Me Close) en Sleep Like A Baby Tonight.

North Side Story

Today I received the present for renewing my U2.com subscription: North Side Story. It is a beautiful book about the early years of U2. And it contains a map of all 'U2 spots'. Great addition to my collection.

Last week U2 released a new single: Invisible, which you could download for free on iTunes. Bank of America paid one dollar to RED for every download. I think this single is awesome. Today the video was released. :-)


Ordinary Love

Finally, a new single by U2: Ordinary Love, written for the movie Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. I played Ordinary Love numerous times since last night and I love it. Bring on the new album. I cannot wait.
