It must be really nice to share your passion for U2 with the rest of your family, and they with you - that's something to treasure right now of course and in times ahead. Often children tend to like anything other than what their parents like - but with U2 - well you just can't fight the feeling and deny yourself those 'tunes'. (as Bono would call them). You all have good taste, but I think it says a lot about you all as a family that you can all share this same passion for U2.
I am estranged from my father and there was never any common ground there, and my Mum has never had quite the same kind of enthusiasm for music that I've had, though we do both like Crowded House and I got to take her to see them at a concert in the middle of Sherwood Forest just a few years ago, a magical night, that I will always treasure.
I was in Honolulu for the final Vertigo show myself and it was a highlight for me too, travelled to the other side of the world, spent a small fortune, it felt and still does feel like a really hedonistic thing to do - but you only live once and all that, and my goodness U2 didn't disappoint, nor did Hawaii.
I hope you can continue to share your love for U2 with the next generation in years to come. Pass that baton!
Great post though I'm starting to feel really old lol.
