    What concert are you seeing next?

    Well, I just got my ticket for The Who at MSG in NYC for May! I may take them in again in Philly about 12 days later - to be determined... In an interview in Rolling Stone not too long ago, Roger Daltrey conceded that this could be his/their last tour, so I was doubly sure to see them this time around. They are planning the tour to be symphonic as well - they will have mini-orchestras from each city that they tour in. I'm looking forward to it!

    Yes, I know. I’m just hoping that they don’t have us choose the rest of the songs later. I agree that it looks like they have already chosen them. The opportunity to vote for these songs to download just reminded me of the process of voting for the songs to be included on U22 (and of the disappointing result) - that’s what I was getting at.

    Yes, you’re right - unless there was a special performance of the song not on the e&i tour, but after the JT anniversary tour (e.g., was it played during the “U2 at the BBC” show?). This opportunity to vote on tracks gave me awful flashbacks of the process to choose tracks for U22. I hope to heaven that they have already picked the tracks themselves and that these in the poll are a selection of ones they have already chosen. (I’m still upset at a portion of the U2.com membership who voted for songs we already had lots of great versions of instead of the rarely-performed and new songs which were the obvious choices for such a collection (thus, we ended up on U22 getting yet another version of a song like WOWY instead of only-performed-on-one-tour tracks like “The Return Of The Stingray Guitar” or “Glastonbury” 🙄 - thank goodness The Edge fixed things to a degree with his “Edge’s Picks” CD included with “From The Ground Up”).). Well, here’s hoping for the best mix of songs.
  4. This was brought up and discussed here recently; however, since I can 't find the various places it was discussed, you could hardly be blamed for not finding it. Here's what is known about the DVD/BluRay release: https://www.u2songs.com/news/new_u2_tour_rumours_and_home_video_updates Scroll down to near the bottom of the story and you'll find what you're looking for (pun partially intended). Summary: Filmed in Mexico City and San Diego Directed by Anton Corbijn May be shown in theaters first - if that is confirmed, the news should come here when things are finalized.

    A photo featuring UF’s logo, a clever visual pun of the Guinness logo, with the U and F forming a nice harp. (and their Bono 😎)

    OK - I’m still quite fatigued, but I’ll share a photo or two before a more proper review. The band was so excited about our excitement from their performing that they joined us in the crowd! 😆

    Everyone does, but the insinuation that mp3s are anywhere close to an equivalent in sound quality of vinyl or CDs is just wrong. The reason why they went with CDs this time around is that it is a multiple-item set. Producing a multiple-item set on vinyl is a VERY expensive undertaking - twice the packaging, twice the vinyl, increased cost of postage to be shipped worldwide, endless complaints from the list that they still haven’t gotten their sets (since their track record for shipping out vinyl speedily isn’t very good), etc. Thus, it was a completely rational decision to go with CDs this time; the overall cost of the set from start to finish is much more reasonable (and, ostensibly, we will get them without the months of delay). I’m very happy that U2.com has changed their ways recently and hasn’t continued to follow the goofy reasoning used by the record industry at large where they just release things on vinyl and lazily lob an mp3 at those who don’t want vinyl. When they release single vinyls here, they now offer WAV downloads in addition to mp3 - that thinking shows they care about those who want better sound quality. I further hope that someday they offer lossless downloads as an option for these gifts (with artwork, of course) - those have better sound quality than all three formats mentioned above. However, back to the topic at hand, simple cost in the production and mailing makes it CDs this time; vinyl has had a good run in gifts over the past 3-4 years - no doubt it will come back in the future too.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    A couple more hours for me for it to be official, but I wanted to acknowledge the birthday/anniversary of SOE’s release too! I’m glad you got the ball rolling! 😎 Happy 1st Birthday/Anniversary, Songs of Experience!

    Bohemian Rhapsody Movie

    I saw it last night and, as the good doctor pointed out, including the U2 flag in that shot of the film made it more historically accurate. I think I even saw the U2 logo on some of the cases being carted around the stage before Queen hit the stage. (The funny thing is that, if a U2 logo was in fact on the case I saw, I’m pretty sure it was the AB logo, which of course hadn’t come into existence yet.) It was a very enjoyable film, and they did a remarkable job with the casting - all four members had actors who looked and sounded like them. It was amazing seeing Gwyllem (sp?) Lee play Brian May - the last time I saw him was when he was on the last couple of series of “Midsomer Murders”. 😄 (For those outside the UK, that show was a light-hearted, but very entertaining, cop show - after a while, you kind of wondered how there could be much of the population left; they would have to already be dead or have moved away out of fear of potentially dying soon.) Nit-pickers will no doubt point out factual inaccuracies, but it wasn’t the point of the film to be a straight historical documentary of Queen. It brought up everything that should have been brought up, and it was done very well overall, IMHO.

    Ten years ago in Dublin....

    How did you manage to run into Bono by The Wall? That’s amazing!
