Posted by:samikismet.
Time:12:33 pm.
Mood: excited.
*dances* A new member! I guess a brief intro is in order. Well, I am known as SamiKismet in the LJ world, and found U2 a bit late from their uprising, and am now one of their avid listeners. And I absolutely loved their new album, which just plain rocks.

I found myself looking for U2 tickets in my area since I didn't order them early enough (Woe!), and landed on Amazon website. There I was amazed to find so many people who just hated their new album! I was so shocked to see the reviews with one star who continued to say that the band "sold out"! Disapointment was the only thing they kept repeating and how "Bomb" didn't uplift like "Achtung (sp?) Baby" did - I've never heard the album, but, I know enough to say that U2 have been the band to take risks and introduce new themes into its genre. I mean, seriously, not only it becomes repetitive and tiring, but the new generation must find the music as "uplifting" as the they did in the 80's. I hope I'm making some kind of sense, because it truly was shocking to see the fans of U2 speak out against what I consider to be the best CD that I'm proud to own.

Plus it's crazy how their concert is sold out! (*sobs* I can't even think of suitable punishment for my procrastination - that's how shameful that is) That is enough for me to prove that U2 is just as revolutionary as it was back then and proved itself with "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb."

Subject:U2 ticket trades
Posted by:barbrocks.
Time:10:58 am.
Is anyone interested in trading 2 General Admission tickets for LA Staples Center show for Tues Nov 1 for 2 General Admission tickets for Oakland show on Wed Nov 9? I would prefer to trade the GA tickets for seats in lower section (100's) and pay for difference in ticket costs.

Also, is anyone interested in trading 2 General Admission tickets for LA Staples Center show for Wed Nov 2 for 2 seats at same show, anything but top level?

So if anyone wants the chance to be in ellipse or along the walkway rather than seats, this is the perfect opportunity. Both sets of tickets say FAN on them, meaning you can be in U2.com line.

U2 Offers Refunds for Online Ticket Snafu

Feb 7, 8:14 AM EST
The Associated Press

U2 drummer Larry Mullen is hoping that American fans will forgive them for the snafu in ticket sales.

Mullen has posted an open letter on the band's Web site offering refunds to members of U2's subscription service. Members were supposed to get first crack at tickets for U2's upcoming tour but that did not work as planned.

"The idea that our long-time U2 fans and scalpers competed for U2 tickets through our own Web site is appalling to me," he writes along with an apology.

Mullen also adds, "By the way, a note to those so-called U2 fans who are quick to accuse U2 of unseemly behavior, I've only got two words for you."

The letter ends there.

This is a new community for images of the Virgin Prunes (yeah, the brother band of U2; for those of you who don't know them: The VP and U2 grew up in Dublin, formed bands and stayed lifelong friends, especially Gavin Friday (singer) and Bono. So there.)


The community is for images of the Virgin Prunes. I realised I have way over 100 pics of just the band on my hard drive and decided to share them and maybe get to see some new ones.


Join vp_daily and enjoy it!

I JUST SAW U2!!!!


AWESOME MOMENTS---


hearing Beautiful Day and the whole crowd singing along and jumping up and down.

-When Bono was talking about 'Sometimes---' and he mentioned his father and how he got a voice back that he hadn't sung in in about ten years and he says: "
Alright Bob, you got the note back, don't fuck it up."

-When Bono is talking about their coats and how Larry is so hard and tough to wear one, and he says "you're not even wearing thermals there are you, Larry?" and Larry says no, and Bono says "do you want to show us?" Larry got up and opened one button of his shirt, smiled and sat back down.



and a slashy moment :-)

when edge's mic was tilted too high and Bono came over and fixed it for him it was sooo cute!!

They played Vertigo, City of Blinding Lights, All Because of You, Miracle Drug, Sometimes---, I Will Follow and Beautiful Day and as an encore they played Out of Control and Vertigo.

Not sure what the Seven Towers in RTSS are?
Wondering about black eyes and why they burn so brightly for her?
Pondering why he is melting glass so he can see the world outside?
Or maybe why she's got a mouth full of teeth and ate all her friends?

Subject:community whoring
Posted by:lovedstrangely.
Time:1:38 am.
In light of the coming election (and the way I've felt about society and the government for a long time now) I'ev created a community that is a safe place to vent and to share ideas for an actual revolution in thought and government. Please check it out:


< lj-cut text= "Fight the Power">

fuck_the_times



fuck_the_times



This is a community dedicated to change. REVOLUTION. If you feel something is deeply, severely wrong with society today, the world over though specifically within the United States and it's socio-political mode of being, this is the place for you.

Beyond puppet on the right, or puppet on the left, this is a place for people who believe in the need for a change in the fundamental system of government, and the mindsets with which we exist day to day.

Is it just me or in the wild horses video, it looks like an outtake near the end where Bon is singing with the white screen behind him and the song plays 'who's gonna taste your salt water kisses' and he mouths the words 'who's gonna ri--and then goes FUCK'

and also after that he's singing who's gonna take the place of me just like in the song but he goes 'no' and walks away. does that look like a mistake to anybody else that they just kept cuz it looks cool?
