favorite tour: Popmart
"I went to twenty-five (25) U2 concerts so far (I’ve been very lucky) and the memories are all very special to me. I remember Bono losing his voice in Amsterdam in December 1989 (this concert was stopped halfway through because of that), I was very close to them in the arena in Ahoy Rotterdam 1992 when they covered Dancing Queen on the b-stage, and Bono’s Birthday Party in Rotterdam in 1993 was also really special. Maybe my nicest concert was in Edinburgh in 1997 (POP) Great crowd, lots of pints, and a tribute to Diana, the people’s princess, in the encore. POPmart was special, NOT because of the setlist ofcourse...(no rotation whatsoever), but because of the Sheer Intensity every single night!. More recently, driving up and down in 1 day to Paris for the 360 tour with a good friend or to Brussels two nights in a row, are my latest sweet, sweet memories. (God, U2 are great live, they never stop to amaze me in concert! Even now I’m writing about this I feel goosebumps)"
favorite show: 1987-07-10 - Rotterdam
"My first U2 show.... In 1987, I met my girlfriend (now my wife) and she asked me to go with her to the U2 concert in Rotterdam (July 10th, 1987) at the Feyenoord Stadium. It was a life-changing experience; U2 performed with only a large print of the Joshua Tree as a backdrop, no fancy lightshow or special effects, but still delivered real intimacy and the earth trembled under my feet. We were GA, at perhaps 5 meters from the stage. ‘Exit’ was spectacular, and ‘Bullet’ still sounded fresh in those days….. "
