Short post: Impulse

Summer 1993; Saturday, early evening, having been to see U2 live for the first time the night before in their Zoo TV tour in the RDS. I was listening to Radio 2, who were broadcasting the Sat night show live, and who were at that moment running commentary and interviews live from the RDS. Having realised the fuss of U2 live the night before, I had decided to sit in and listen to it.

And as I sat there, I thought to myself......fuck it.

I hopped on a bus to Ballsbridge, got a ticket off a tout for around 40 quid and went to the gig.

And it was great.


  1. Great to live your life like that Milan, impulsiveness is a wonderful quality to have, and to be able to indulge. Unfortunately it's something I just can't do...three small people are really conducive to being impulsive! But once they are grown up.....OH then I'll make up for it!

  2. have only been to one live concert if you can call it that David Essex in the seventies

  3. MW - note how I have to go back to 1993 to find a moment of impulse.

    Ails - David Essex is probably cool now.
