    u2 song of the day

    Just love this version - pure (almost) tears. Just reminds of growing up with U2 since the live aid and red rocks teenage years and those that aren't here anymore. Just one band has that effect on me.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Goodbye America, hello the not so united states of Europe lol - in a few weeks. I can't be arsed with the political references anymore - since 'FUCK THE REVOLUTION' after the Enniskillen bombing in 1987, I doubt they'll ever reach those dizzy heights of justified abhorrence again. U2 is about the music. I'm liking the set lists thus far, if not loving them - hoping for some minor changes, but dont expect wholesale anymore. It's a production these days. Give the band credit though - still touring, original line up - that is magnificent. Turn the lights on Willie.
  3. Fond memories of that place in 2015. Up in the rafters somewhere - a big moment in my life fitting in a U2 show on another continent whilst on a family holiday to US from Northern Ireland. I'll never forget it. Belfast a few months later was sublime though. It's a toss up between Belfast and New York as to where the bands 'second home' is? 😎

    Good luck everyone. Hard to believe that'll be the North American tour done n dusted. That flew in.

    Oh, I'm done with phones and recordings. As much as I appreciate those that share their experience - I do mine via a few pics - I need to watch things through my own two failing with age lenses generally. Hope they shake the set list a little. Only a few shows left in leg one - maybe they will try a few additions, if not, maybe leg two will introduce some new tunes from the new album or catalogue. I'm happy either way. Highlights so far for me on tour - vastly improved intro and band entry v innocence, and the C stages on Pride, brilliant, if only for a few fans in proximity, but providing great clips to us all. Did I actually say I'm done with phones and recordings? Yes, but that's just me. Keep sharing.
  6. Ok. Time zones starting to align a little now....I could wait up!😎

    I hope he's OK.

    Somebody needs to speak to Bono now!. 'Look where you're going man ffs!' - This tour has a long way to go! On a serious note, nasty fall, and tiny margins - didn't flinch - commendable = ROCK STAR (and lead singer in the best band on the planet.) 😎

    A bit off topic, and apologies, as it was posted on the San Jose thread (thanks DMWAY) - but I do think it is worthy of inclusion on this thread. The break in tune, that tune just before the band enter front, left and centre - Isnt it friggin brilliant! Buzzing for when I hear this live. C stage rocks by the way!!!
  11. Many thanks. Got it.
  12. It didn't - keep trying!😐
  13. Can anyone tell me what that tune is that is playing before the band make their entrance? Apologies if I missed it already, but its a cool tune!!!

    I laughed out loud when I heard about Willie Williams contemplating (tongue in cheek) about crashing people's phones, or sucking the battery life dry out of them, but for the onslaught of lawsuits. So funny. So they settled for AR.

    Quite happy with the lack of JT songs on this tour, the band toured it last year, so why would they do more of it again. There comes a point (and as good as that intro to 'streets' is, or as good as that 'shine like the stars' moment was during WOWY) when you want to hear more of the current / other past material. It reminded me of the switch from JT to AB period, and that vox pop that featured in the AB/ Zoo tour promos - 'ya can't keep playing the same old stuff to the same old people' (or words to that effect) - it's happening again, only this time, we're all about 25 years older than back then! Look forward to some set list changes as the tour goes on though. Absolutely starting to love the live version of Blackout, personally struggled with that album track initially - it's my 'Bullet' re-visited indeed, a generation on!🙂 Not sure the AR stuff is my cup of tea, though the app is on the phone regardless. I'm guessing it will be an 'experience' I probably forget to engage in after a few pints in Belfast bar when my chance to see the tour comes around. Big fan of Edge 'outside left' and Adam 'outside right' (or the other way around, dependent on whether you're looking from or at the stage) for the performance of Pride - up clos(er) n personal to the fans - nice move. Onwards we go to the next city. Wish list?? Drop in a wee 'Please', 'Do you feel Loved' or 'All I want is You' perhaps - but like that the band are finishing up thus far with ' Love is Bigger' - it's a great track, and can't wait to hear it live.
