  1. Caroline and friends, this site has been very meaningful to me. “Thanks” just can’t say it all. Love to you, only the best wishes, and may God bless. You have made a difference!

  2. Hello, very sad that your going. I always go to this site daily to check the U2 news. But thanks for providing us with the news since 2000. Best of luck in the future! Thanks!

  3. Does this mean I have to actually do work when I’m at the office now?
    Thank you so much for everything, this has always been one of my favorite sites (literally, my browser opens up to this, CNN, and ESPN)

  4. All good things must pass. And for a long time U2Log was the best! I really liked your point of view as well. But, the internet moves on. THANK YOU, Caroline and everyone who worked on the blog!

  5. I’ve been following you ever since the beginning, I’m so sad to see you leave. You will be missed U2log crew!

    Thanks for all of the years. At least we got you in twitter!

  6. Incredibly sad to see you go, I pray this is a path to a grand opportunity for you and the crew.

    Thank you so much for everything you have done for the fan community over these past few years.


  7. Thanks. I enjoyed your insights into U2, Gavin Friday, the special holiday treats for download, the promo bono, and so much more. Will still follow you on twitter.

    1. Thanks so much for your awesomeness! As a true fan if U2, this WAS my official site before the Band had their official site up….and you returned to being 1# quickly afterwards

      Cheers 🙂

  8. Found this site in 2000 in the months leading up to All That You Can’t Leave Behind… and it’s been a regular favourite of mine. Sad to see you shut it down… thanks for the years 🙂

  9. Thank you for this wonderful site. Since I became a fan back in 2001 this has been one of my favorites sites. I have checked this site every day since then. Best of luck!

  10. Caroline… you will be missed.. you were and will always one of the top go to people for any and all U2 facts… you provided us with extensive information, and always a heads up to what to expect way before the official sites would or could comment on topic… So sad to see you go.. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for setting a great example how a great fan site really works….
    Hope to see you personally around twitter..
    Wishing you all the best hun.

  11. Such a sad day =,(… We’ll miss you!! I hope the permanent hiatus is not definitive, and I hope to see you around sometime again. Thanks for all this years, it’s been a thrill! Long Live U2log =)

  12. I quote each of the previous comments 🙁
    U2log was THE U2 news site for me as well for a very long time. PromoBono will always remain the symbol of this site’s graceful irony 🙂
    Best wishes to all of you, and to Caroline in particular!

  13. Thanks to Caroline & staff for the last 10 years.

    The best U2 site for me.

    Such a shame, you will be sorely missed.

    PromoBono has left the internet 🙁


  14. I’ve been checking this website every day since the very beginning. Thanks so much for your work. Its very sad to see you go but I suppose you have great things to do elsewhere. Best of luck to you. Thanks again.

  15. I am saddened to hear this. U2log is one of my favorite fan sites. I will truly miss your sense of humor. Best of luck with your future endeavors.

  16. Sad to see you guys go, this is always been a great newssite for U2 fans all over the world. Thanks for all the years you put soo much effort and time in this site.
    You will be missed!

  17. Hey Guys,
    I’ve been a fan of this site since 2000 – got to be the best U2 fansite going, and I include U2.com in that!
    Will miss the format and updates – I check in everyday – so will need to re-boot myself….

    thanks for the memories!

  18. just found the news… and it feels like a punch in the stomach… =|

    thank you, Caroline and the u2log team, for all these years…

    (damn… this sucks) =(

  19. Dear Caroline – Wishing you the best of life. Will miss your site very much….I too checked it almost every day. The future is yours to explore make it happy! Many thanks for ten years of great reading in regards to U2.

  20. Thanks for the coverage, news and photos. I’ve been a fan since the beginning. It was fun!
    Much success in whatever endeavor or path you choose!!


  21. Sad to see the message that U2log.com is on a permanent hiatus. You will be missed. But thanks for all the news, great insights, critical views, holiday surprises, etc.

    C ya!


  22. thanks for a decade of awesomeness, and getting me through long boring days at the office as well as visits home for the holidays. not sure how to fill the void, but i’m glad it was you guys for so long.


  23. I checked your site every day and it’s been a great resource, with some exciting times. Well done for all your efforts and if you change your mind, well, I’m still here anyway. Slán ‘s beannacht.

  24. Thanks for the list of songs that were played over the PA before U2 came on. You gave us those for the Elevation, Vertigo and 360 tours. I was able to download them and every cold Montana morning while running I relive some of the greatest moments of my life. It’s been a tough winter in more ways than you will ever know, but those songs keep me looking forward to the future and the moment. It’s the closest I can get to the energy right before lift off!

  25. This website was on my short but exclusive lists of U2 sites that I visit regularly. One of my fondest memories was using this site to watch the 2004 surprise version of “I Will Follow” to close the show. I was living in Switzerland at the time and the only way that I could watch that spetacular performance was through this site.

  26. Yikes, I don’t read for a week, and look what happens!! Did I miss an earlier announcement about this? Did no one want to take over for Caroline, or did she (understandibly) prefer to retire the site rather than hand it over to someone else?

    I echo all the above sentiments about what a great site this has been; it was my home page for many many years after discovering it (and U2) in 2001. Best of luck in your new adventures Caroline!

  27. Damn You for quitting! Just kidding, but the ‘inner me’ is not pleased. I already miss u2log, maybe you can just go away and dream it all up again. >sniff< The first "blog" I ever saw, and the only one I regularly commented on… thanks for the memories!

  28. Bloody hell.

    I have been a fan of this site since 2000 and been here daily … almost.

    Atu2.com, scatterolight.com and U2log.com have been my favorite U2 sites over the years and now it’s only two left.

    Thanks a lot for all of your time and effort you put into this hard work.

  29. Hi, I don’t know why you’re taking that choice but can happens! However I’m doing something similar for u2star. Maybe something is changed inside me or the unforgettable fire for u2 is no more.
    Keep up the good work! This has been of the best u2 sites!

  30. From the first post, or one of the first, I was following the Log, since those times where a Log, meant a lot. I will miss you, before entering the official website of U2, I entered U2Log. I wanted to help, luckily you chose, the cover of Zooropa done for me, and that first U2Log Cover for that Podcast. I will always remember the site. You made ​​me see another side of U2. Adios, Mauro M. newdarkeyes@gmail.com.

    March 30, I’m going to see U2 in Buenos Aires, my first time. Closes an era, U2Log was the prelude to my first time with U2. I’m going to wear a special shirt to honor.

  31. Thanks a lot for the many useful & timely posts over the years: though there are many U2 fan sites around, yours is above the rest, because you focus on so many of the initiatives the band has exploted over the years, many important and relevant, partiocularly those in less developed countries which are often ignored:

    that’s beside the fact that I saw the Stingray clip here first and “live”….!

  32. Thanks for the memories, Caroline and crew!

    I’m personally not as into U2 as I used to be, HTDAAB didn’t push my buttons and NLOTH left me cold. Bono’s voice just doesn’t send a tingle down my spine like it used to, either. “All good things…”, I guess. I hope they prove me wrong with the next album.

    PS Now you have time for a Gavin Friday blog, Caro. 😛

  33. Thnx for all the good work! It was a pleasure reading this blog – though lately not as frequently as in the beginning, though that has more to do with my diminished interest in the band, since their albums are not what they used to be (NLOT is their best nillies-album, but that one doesn’t hold a candle to their 90’s work, let alone the other two).

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  34. I am so proud to have gotten to play (a very minor) part in U2log.com – a site I visited everyday for years before we had RSS feeds and Twitter updates to let us know about everything the second it happened.

    Caroline, you were my eyes and ears into the U2 world I didn’t even know existed before I stumbled on U2log.com.

    There is a time for everything and while it saddens me that U2log.com’s time has come to end, I thank you for the energy and life you put into this site.

    “…and we’re throwing a party for ourselves and you. It’s no big deal, it’s just – we have to go away and … and dream it all up again.”
