  1. Im in! Front row. Brilliant!!

    • Cool AVATAR!

      We will have to link this up to the BIG SCREEN! Then you know what that means!!!

  2. Sounds awesome!

    Except, three things:

    08:30:00 p.m. Sunday October 25, 2009 in America/Los_Angeles converts to

    05:30:00 a.m. Monday October 26, 2009 in Africa/Johannesburg

    And from this article here: <a title="Wired" href="http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2009/10/u2-will-play-free-concert-on-youtube/ " rel="nofollow"&gt <a href="http://;http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2009/10/u2-will-play-free-concert-on-youtube/” target=”_blank”>;http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2009/10/u2-will-play-free-concert-on-youtube/
    You can watch the live event at YouTube.com/U2 starting at 8:30 p.m. PT on Sunday, October 25, if you are in any of the following countries: t<span style="text-decoration: underline;">he United States, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Italy, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Mexico, India, Israel, South Korea and the Netherlands</span>. Following the show, an archived version will be available at YouTube.com/U2official.

    And finally – live web streaming needs a solid online connection to be anything less than irritating.

    Anyone have any ideas on how we can get around the country restrictions? How does YouTube figure that out anyway? Would it be based on your pc settings (in which case a quick region change is not a problem) or (and more likely) based on your IP address, in which case we'd need to figure out how to connect via an IP address in one of the listed countries.

    Am thinking it may be less frustrating to wait for the "archived version" to be made available?

    • I realised these problems too, I don't even have a hard line at home. 3g sometimes is ok, nut monday morning web traffic in SA could screw our plans up. DAMN these service providers!

      Or we could just buy the dvd at the traffic lights on monday afternoon……

  3. I am happy because it is India is on list. But i cant afford either the bandwidth it will take to see this show. Would be gr8 I am sure.

    • Bandwidth doesn't come for free…..

  4. How do those 10-15 countries in that list make up "Global" anyway?

    • Another good question….

  5. So, did anyone get to see any of it?
