My husband and I have been U2 fans for years, decades.  We were so happy to finally see them in concert for their last tour.  It didn’t matter that we were in the nosebleed section.  We were FINALLY seeing them LIVE!!  We later went to the U23D movie of that tour and I confessed to Brent that that was how close I had always envisioned actually seeing them in concert.  I mean, how else was Bono going to pull me up onto stage to dance with him??!!

Well, I have chance #2 to dance with Bono… because of course that is a possibility… Brent got us U2 tickets today!!!

But here’s a question for you… have you ever listened to the words to their songs??  They just keep getting more and more “spiritual”… for the lack of a better word.  I am constantly amazed that they  sing what they do and are still so widely popular.

Favorite lyric so far on this new album?  “Stop helping God across the street like a little old lady.”
