  1. just for the heck of it I thought I'd start this thread just to remind you Irish bastards that us Aussies are still here. we are a patient bunch, been just over 7 years since you graced our shores. yes, I know we are a long way from everywhere else but that's what makes us real southerners so appealing. no matter how long you leave it between tours we remember you & welcome you back. I'm currently listening to SOE, I've taken 2 tracks out that I don't like and I'm enjoying the album alot more now. so if you decide to finally come back here & hopefully New Zealand too (can't forget our cousins) please don't skip any cities. I'm in Perth and usually Adelaide are skipped if you play here. please don't skip Perth or Adelaide. especially now that Perth has the best arena in Australia and a brand new stadium.
  2. great poster, they have a different poster for every gig. looks like Cthulu is in this one. the only thing I don't like about MetallicA's new stage is that it's quite small. if you aren't on the rail in GA or have a great seat they will look tiny. I'd rather them get rid of the drones (though they do look cool) and have the usual screens with footage of them.

    the airport album is shite. SOE is brilliant compared to it.
  4. MetallicA. a band that stuck together through the loss of a friend & band mate Cliff Burton RIP (1962-1986) a band that Bono acknowledges are way better than U2 in everyway "it was the f*cking Cow Palace!" you tell him Larry.

    I thought he sounded good at the half time he did but I know what you mean. his voice is raspy now, songs like Hey Jude where he needs to do those fantastic screams he did. that's what I think has affected his voice. wtf is wrong with the Super Bowl? they have never had MetallicA perform at halftime. they are an American band. a couple of years ago they did a gig in California called 'Too Heavy For Halftime' and it was on the same time as the super bowl. too heavy for halftime

    Paul McCartney did a great halftime. I'm not into American Gridiron, but I like the halftime when the music act is good. MetallicA have never done a halftime, what a joke.

    How about some Pop on next Tour guys!

    the big four on *POP* are MOFO, LNOE, GONE & PLEASE < some people may not agree with that but imo those are the best songs on the album. any of those 4 would be great... wait, there are no Aussie dates, why should I even give a sh*t?

    I haven't seen the episode with Bono & Stan's dad duelling it out for largest crap in the world. I've only seen snippets. the episode you are referring to is an oldy. that's the one about Barbara Streisand ruining Aspen. "Robert Smith, Robert Smith, Robert Smith" "Sidney Poitier, Sidney Poitier". I remember the episode where they had a crack at MetallicA for taking on napster, that was funny. but I was on Metallica's side about that and so were most recording artist's, they just didn't have the guts to say it publicly. both U2 & MetallicA have been on The Simpsons lol

    sorry about that. I haven't seen anyone else post about Bono being a bit of asshat (I thought the South Park clip may of annoyed people) myself I find it hilarious. please don't make this thread political lets keep this thread about SOE and how it's shaping up to be a gem

    I don't listen to Taylor Swift. does she "aah ah ah" alot? I am anything but sanctimonious & pretentious dmway. I just spend too much time on the internet I don't expect the band to change, actually Bono is the only one that annoys me. when I was 16 whatever he said was audio gold. now that I'm older, this anti-Trump thing of his getting old. no, he's not going to change. do I still love him... I think so. I think it's ok to disagree with Bono on something and still be a fan. if every U2 fan agreed with Bono... how boring it would be. Bono being Irish probably loves a good argument/debate and I think us Aussies are similar that way. you can disagree with someone and still be friends with them. nah, don't worry. I'm used to making jokes on forums and having a laugh. even if we are talking abut something that may be considered a serious subject. maybe it's because I'm an Aussie, I don't know?

    I didn't take it as an attack. Bono said The Blackout was about America in a video that was on the front page. when he said this an image of the Statue of Liberty had a wall built around her. I agree The Blackout does kick ass, one of the best Clayton bass grooves I've heard in ages and it drives the whole song. it's very high up in the mix which I love. nah, I didn't take offence. I just wanted to post that South Park thing on Bono, feck that's funny. YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH! I can't say I love SOE but my ears like it alot more now. the 2nd half of the album is really good, even The Showman sounds better to me now.

    the band are kind of shoving politics in our face with that GOOYOW South Park video. it's just not my cuppa tea and no I'm not going after Obama, if you look at my post I put W before him. I don't want to make this thread about politics but 3 songs on this album are about US politics. GOOYOW, American Soul & The Blackout. YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH! YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!! oh and the Grammy's suck and they will continue to suck until they give Joe Satriani a Grammy Award.

    ^ the bit in bold. from what I've heard your economy is doing better under Trump? thanks to W & Obama you guys got into... what was it 17 trillion dollar debt? that's bloody ridiculous. @Manohlive just ignore me... I find it's the only way to get rid of me

    I hate what they did with the Beatitudes and to give Eugene Peterson the credit for it edit: I didn't care for the performance on the Grammy's but then I don't like the song. also, were they playing live? or was the audio pre-recorded? I can't stand the 'aaha ha ahh' part, sounds stupid.

    "and you give yourself away and you give yourself away..." I wasn't telling you what to do, I was greatly suggesting it *cough* Chris Martin *cough* anyway back on topic I listened to SOE yesterday and cut out GOOYOW & American Soul and the album sat with me better. I really enjoyed it. those 2 songs, I can't see myself ever liking them. American Soul I love the music, the beat is great but the lyrics... just fed up with the B-man singing about America.

    yes, you are the only U2 fan that likes Coldplay. now go watch the 1973 classic movie 'Soylent Green' starring Charlton Heston and you'll know what I mean. oh, I buy my music. I always have to have the cd, deluxe if there is one... now go watch the movie!

    when I read your post I couldn't tell that you were making fun of yourself. it's this forum. on another forum, I know what certain people are like eg: when they are being self deprecating or taking the piss out of themselves. when I read your post I actually thought you didn't know what tours Ultraviolet was played. sorry you have the flu, it's summer here.

    u2 song of the day

    Love Is Bigger Than Anything In It's Way this song is really lifting me up, a real joy. there are only a few U2 songs that have this quality and there are 2 on SOE. the other being TLTTGYA.
