  1. What a great tour it's been! Thanks to each and every one of you who have joined us for the live threads. You are what help make them what they are. Thanks to my co-mods, @Max Tsukino and @bigwave; I think we make a great team and have thoroughly enjoyed covering the tour with you. Who's to say where the wind will take us; but let us all be thankful for the musical journey we've had so far.

    U2start and anyone else would still need a wireless network connection to do that, and it is highly unlikely they would have access to the band's undoubtedly password-protected wireless network routers.

    That's what I'm trying to tell you....U2Start is not there. They are pulling the videos from U2's FB and Instagram stories.  If you go look at those, it is the exact same videos. Whoever is running the U2start Twitter account tonight, is sitting at their computers, just like us.  We have not gotten any actual social media posts other than the official U2 ones from the stadium since before the show.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think U2Start has access to some special signal. Those video feeds were crystal clear. Maybe U2gigs had a weak battery in whatever device they're using. Who knows? But the signal does not appear to be uniformly weak from what I'm seeing in those snippets and photos. Maybe in some parts of the stadium it is week, but in others, it looks perfectly fine.

    Again, I can understand if no one wanted to bother with a feed. They're there to enjoy the show -- and as I said, I hope they have the time of their lives.

     

    No, as someone pointed out, U2start is actually pulling the video from the U2 FB or Instagram stories.

    I was thinking, earlier today (last night) of how sad I was going to be when I heard it tonight (today)  I had to remind myself not to let that spoil my enoyment tonight. (tomorrow?)   I was sick for TJT30 shows in Chicago.  I don't remember much of those shows but I sure do remember Red Hill Mining Town.  I had purposely not listened to the live version until I saw them do it live in Chicago.  It was an extraordinary U2 concert moment for me.

    I did that too... @Max Tsukino and @bigwave would tell me when I could turn my volume back up on my computer b/c I wanted to hear it brand new when I first saw it live...which was in Chicago in 2017.

    Seems a bit odd, he was on a live TV show in the UK on Friday night, suppose he could have flown out yesterday to do his thing?

    a log flight, but still in the realms of possible...

    U2Start did just tweet about that and added "handle with care", so since we are pulling from what we see on Twitter, it could be real or fakenews...only time will tell.

    Many of the snippets we're getting aren't from the band.

    We have gotten snippets from their FB/Instagram stories and from U2Start....if there were others who could have done a live feed, they would have.  U2gigs tweeted 3 hours before the show that the signal was bad. I feel certain, as they have let us in the sound for many shows, that they would have done it today, if possible.
