"Blown away by it when I watched Live Aid many years ago. Still a fave today."
Loved U2 since a friend's older brother put Sunday Bloody Sunday and New Year's Day on a mix tape in approx. 1983. Now old enough that I'm looking forward to taking 4 kids to their first U2 show in June!
"I'd love to be able to say it was symbolic, but the truth is we needed a stadium that didn't have a football team, so we could use it for three weeks. Also, Las Vegas is a good place to work - the local crews are very experienced in setting up live shows"
- Paul McGuinness on selecting Las Vegas as opening city for Popmart, 1997
The song New Year's Day was U2's first top 10 hit in the UK.
