There’s no other way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day IMO than with U2 of course. Two years ago today my mom and I bought our tickets to see 360 in Dublin which had basically been a dream of ours for 25 years. Last year I was a little sad about this anniversary, seeing that a year had already passed. This year I think of it more as the moment when I realized my dreams really can come true if I want them enough. I just have to MAKE them happen. And that’s what we did.
So check these out – my very first U2 tour shirts!! The Unforgettable Fire is from 1985 and The Joshua Tree is from 1987. They’re from before I even had boobs 😉 They’re all worn and torn and faded – but much loved. I have other shirts from other tours but these are the most special because they mark just how long I’ve loved these Irishmen:
I might actually be able to wear the UF shirt this summer! The other one not so much – the back is really in tatters!
