Gaga for Gaga in Edmonton
Who jumps off of a plane after seeing concerts in Europe only to go to another concert a day later?? Crazy people, that’s who! Me, that’s who! Not going to cancel my U2 in Europe holiday, but can’t miss Gaga’s Joanne World Tour either! So I went… a little bit jet lagged… It was totally worth it!
Jet-lagged Musings of U2 in Brussels
Over 80 days ago, on May 12, 2017, U2 set out on a beautiful musical journey that would captivate their audiences with a 30-year-old album. I was lucky enough to start my own musical journey with them that day for a total of 5 shows, just now finishing in Brussels on August 1, 2017.

In Search of Paper Gods. Duran Duran in Edmonton
So when the ultimate 80s synth band Rock Gods, Duran Duran, announced they were coming to my town, I jumped at the chance to see these Wild Boys live.
