U2.COM : Vinyl Special

We're giving away a dozen copies of a rare pressing of Songs Of Innocence on a single vinyl LP.

This special single disc LP features a white label bearing the same artwork as the iTunes digital release.

How do you stand a chance of getting one of these highly collectible items ?

The band have been talking about the inspiration of the new songs in Dublin of the 1970's,  particularly bands they got into like The Ramones, The Clash and Kraftwerk. In the LP sleevenotes, Bono tells a story about a Ramones gig at the state cinema in Dublin.
'My best friend Guggi had a ticket and he snuck us through a side exit he pried open. The world stopped long enough for us to get on it. Even though we only saw half the show, it became one of the great nights of our life....'

What we're looking for from you is a vivid memory of an early gig - or a show that changed your life.

Could be the first band you saw... or just one you'll never forget.

Anything strange or wonderful take place - or was it a total let-down ?

Did you meet them backstage after the show - or have you never listened to them again?

Extra points if you can include a photo of the night - with your mates or with that weird hairstyle you had at the time or of the poster promoting the gig.

We'll publish some of the best entries on the site and our favourites from subscribers will receive one of these special Songs Of Innocence LP's. (You can still enter even if you're not a subscriber - we've blagged some other Songs of Innocence prizes too.)

Post your pictures / links to the story up on social media (Twitter / FB / Instagram etc) using the hashtag #unforgettablegig and in our Zootopia Forums.

Entries close on Friday October 17th.
