U2 Returns to Long Island with THE eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour
Posted: 5:36 pm Wednesday, November 1st, 2017
I was working at Beggars Opera in Queens as house DJ when a record rep handed me a copy of U2’s debut “Boy” I immediately was a fan playing “I will Follow ” right away and the reaction from the crowd was “Who is this?” That was 1980.
Now a days everyone knows U2. With over 170 million records sold and a new one, “Song’s of Experience” on the way, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005 and their human rights and philanthropic en devours they are truly a force to be reckoned with. I mean you can’t listen to the radio without hearing one of their songs.
I’ve been lucky enough to see them a few times throughout their years including their last stint at the the Garden. It was nothing short of amazing in size and scope as well as set-list. Great show and this one should be even better. – Fingers
