I'm loving the constant reminders to this album! It makes my day AND it gives me another excuse to repeat how much i looooooooove this album!!!!!

great album U2, but is it necessary to post each day on FB how great your new album is ? Try to reach potential new fans by other social media rather than spamming U2 subscribers..preaching to the choir ;)

Have a great show in Birmingham! So sad not to be able to be there tonight - front row ;-)that's where I would have been Sunday. Just wasn't meant to be ... 😢

Before we say goodbye to 2017, here is a big thank you for a great tour in Japan and Australia and to so many people who came to the shows. So many great moments and we promise: Wallis will be back. We also want to say a massive thanks to everybody who helped to make this journey happen and a big shout out to Culture Irelandfor the support as well! Happy pre-christmas everybody out there! Back on tour in Europe in March & April with a few special shows as well.

Another one off the bucket list, watch a movie with Luke Skywalker! Thanks for the invite Star Wars, Mark and Glen went all out !!

DUBLIN, just a reminder that in a week's time I'll be playing this show with some great people for some great charities. U may not know the music of The Replacements, heck until a few years back neither had I, but it's pure fun and energy to hear and to play and I guarantee you'll enjoy yourself!!! *Disclaimer, in no way is this legally binding, you may find my guitar playing to be just TOO good and have to leave the show...

It'll be better. Trust me. My 5 months old slept 10 hrs yesterday. Well, doesn't mean I slept that long, since I didn't manage to go to bed in time but I could have! Enjoy these days! Time flies!

also shared about Donal Skehan

If possible take it in turns to get a good few hours sleep when you can day or night especially Sophie but depends on feeding etc.... easy for exhaustion to creep up.... other stuff can wait a few weeks until time between feeds increases but really the best most beautiful time xxx

yep. it may take 15 years to settle out, but you could put this song in a centrifuge with all of U2’s other great songs, spin them down, and it would end up towards the top. That good.

Michelle Marcak

also shared about U2

This is a poem I just finished as an expression of my feelings about the new U2 album, SOE

To Love, I Rhapsodize

In the last flicker of light dust settles on my heart
Tragedy beheld the night as I tore my skin apart
Crushed under the weight of this darkness and screaming
Love please save me so I can continue my dreaming

I’m wrought with anxiety and desperation
I’m grasping at multiple strands of connection
Formidable pain felt, a communal heart broken
Listening intently for those familiar words to be spoken

A ting pierced the silent evening of stored rage
Could this be my friend, deliverance freeing me from my cage?
A universe exists within my soul, a kaleidoscope of color
I can feel the vibrations of pain and joy coming in from another

A fragment of a star rejoices in melodies soft and profound
Drowning in a darkness I am rescued by love and sound
I will travel with this light to a place of safety and fun
Dancing inside the glorious beauty of this brightly lit sun

I thought my soul had weakened from such despair
I realize now that it’s an isolation all of us share
Waiting for our preacher to teach us how to radiate a glow
In utter defiance of hate we sing along to start the show

I can now hear my own quiet voice written in a love letter
A song that lifts the spirit and makes it all feel so much better
I would swim beyond the breaking waves to prove devotion
Carrying the love with me as I navigate treacherous ocean

My emotions stripped raw, I yearn for solid earth
This romance has pushed me on forcing rebirth
I stand strong now, no longer silent in dark fear
The dust falls off my heart as I shed a grateful tear

When the wig falls and he laughs is my favorite part. He still sings through it though. Ive watched this at least 50 times before. It never gets old. And they are my 3 favs. Damians confidence in this performance is amazing. Theyre just all amazing.

I love this video. Poor Damien never knows what Neil is going to do. But being the professional that he is, he got through the song.

Amy did you see this?? I love it! So funny!!! These guys are great! Next time they come back we have to try and go again!
Gambling Blues -- from Taste's appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970

"The fact that Rory — only twenty-two years old, but already a seasoned veteran of the stage — could stand in front of such a huge audience with nothing but his white Fender Telecaster and a slide for company, and perform ‘Gambling Blues,’ the way he did is mind-blowing. But Rory could do that, couldn’t he? Letting the band take a timeout, he could pick up an acoustic or a mandolin or whatever he felt like and still remain the focus of attention."

Nothing says Christmas spirit like getting dumped on the holidays! 🎅🏻

Well there you go
He also did 11th April 1978
Never missed a Rory gig in the north east
I remember the music but not always what year as we saw him
Loads of times
Reading festivals were great as well
Everybody loved his shows even if not there particularly to see him
They were fans after it though
Everyone I dragged to see him got converted

Let the tour begin! First up, Thurles! See you all tomorrow #littlegreencars #thurles
