U2 Past and Present Come Full 360

Forgive the blurry image to the left, but it pre-dates digital cameras.

1987 Joshua Tree Tour. Rainy RFK Stadium (Bono would later dislocate his arm after an onstage wipe out). Hours hanging out with friends blasting U2 bootlegs and, you know, doing what people do before shows. I'm the guy in green, fourth from the left.

Relive some U2 memories this Friday and make some new ones, hopefully at Fed Ex Field September 29th when U2 hit DC for the 360 Tour!

Join me and other TMD types from 10am to 1pm at Slainte Irish Pub (1700 Thames St in Fells Point) where we'll test your U2 trivia knowledge and give away U2 cd's, memorabilia and, most importantly, a pair of tickets to the sold out Fed Ex Field show!

We'll be broadcasting live from down there, so come on down! We'll see if you've got what it takes to be U2's number one fan in Baltimore!

Since we've got kind of a bootleg vibe to this post, what with the grainy photo and all, here's another RFK memory (you bet I was there for the ZOO TV Tour too!). Bono's getting down with a local to one of my favorite, underrated U2 tracks. See ya Friday.
