The night of December 2, 2023 was one of the most unforgettable nights of my life. It was a full-on U2 fan circle of life moment. You see, I watched my first ever U2 concert back in 2009 at Veltins-Arena in Germany. I was pregnant with my baby girl. It was a dream come true for me! Fast forward to 2023 (14 years later!), I took my now-13 year old to her first ever U2 concert at Sphere in Las Vegas, and made a U2 fan out of her! Haha. We’re both at the same height now, but most importantly, huge u2 fans! So, thank you, u2, Sphere, and Veltins-Arena, for being part of our family!
