Edge of the world

Axver's 2006 U2 Tour.

Well, today began painfully stressfully and then nicely worked itself out. I initially totally failed to get tickets to either of the second shows in Auckland or Melbourne - all I had to show for my efforts was a sneaking suspicion that had I refreshed Ticketmaster's website any more, I would've got RSI. However, one of my friends managed to do awesomely and I've now become the recipient of the extras they bought, so I'm thoroughly thrilled!

Yes, I'm going to multiple shows. Although I'm not as pessimistic as those who believe U2 will never tour Australia again (though I do believe this is likely the last New Zealand visit), who knows just when they will next be here, so I figure I'll seize this opportunity and have a blast this tour. If the next tour doesn't come down here - and it looked a while doubtful that this tour would come - I very much doubt I'll have the financial resources to fly up to the Northern Hemisphere. I must say I'm quite glad that the shows I caught back in May were the arena shows while we're getting the stadium setup. It'll be fun to see how they compare.

As a matter of fact, if I do happen to hear One Tree Hill live, I'm not even sure I'll need to see another tour because nothing could top that.
