I'm only one member of this band, and Edge is three. -- Bono


by Jan Despiegelaere

This was my first U2-concert ever. I was 14 and allowed to go with my cousin if I had good grades.
I was (for once) best of the class, but my cousin got sick. Then my father went with me because he promised (but I guess also because Joe Cocker was Top of the Bill). Anyway, I was standing there, and U2 came on stage. I remember Bono saying: 'we came here in 82, we came here in 83, now this is 85 and this is 11 O'clock tick tock'. It was one of the most chilling moments of my life, as was the crowd singing '40' almost until Joe Cocker got on stage. I've seen them about 10 times now, but I guess this will always be the best concert I've seen ever.
