  1. I also recommend this film for those who missed it the first time around. When you watch it, you really feel like you are there!
  2. Wow! Thank you for finding that! Someone was alert in the U2 camp for finding this in time for the tour!
  3. Yes - as was already mentioned by a kind poster. We have been discussing how this download should come to us since page 1 when I brought up the idea of higher-quality downloads being available for us, quoted below: It is more fully discussed by many after this post - it is our collective hope that the downloads will be high-quality ones, especially since many of us won't be able to play the vinyl anyway...
  4. Well, not to belabor the point, but they have had such opinions since at least 1983, if not for their entire career. I don't think they think they are trying to be above it all either. If they can be helpful in their position, they would like to be - that's always been their M.O. It's also fine that you care less what celebrities have to say about the state of the world; however, if that were really true, why did you feel the need to take U2 to task for the movie snippet on their own message board? Yes, it was a great show, and I'm very happy that you are exposing your son/daughter to high-quality music.
  5. Actually, I (and very many in the stadium) found that quite amusing - I don't know who around the band found that snippet from an old movie, but the fact that it lined up so well with modern events made that quite a good find. If you're attempting to criticize the band for criticizing our current administration, they have always spoken truth to power - no problem there. Bono was also quite diplomatic all night in praising political left and right (former Pres. Bush and even Rick Santorum(!) got a shout out from him).
  6. Loved the show too - I also was hoping for "Homecoming". They seem to be linking "Homecoming" and the new track ("The Little Things That Give You Away") and interchanging that pair with "Bad"/"Vertigo". I've seen/heard the second pair lots of times - I haven't heard either of the other two live ever. So, I hope they will play the "Homecoming" pair when I see them next on the 28th. I've seen them do "Ultraviolet" quite a few times, so the return of "Mysterious Ways" (especially with the visuals) was quite nice, IMHO. I would be happy with either. Roll on the 28th!
  7. I got the info from Ticketmaster, and the casino idea sounds like a very good one. Thanks one and all!
  8. P.S. Responding either here or by private message would be fine - thanks again in advance!
  9. Where is the best place to park in downtown Pittsburgh for the show at Heinz Field? I have attended a few events at PNC Park in the past, and the parking I find is either not very close and/or very expensive. Surely there must be better than what I have found in the past. Any suggestions, Pittsburghers? (I was relieved to see that game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals will not be until the following night - having both events on the same night would have created a parking nightmare.)
  10. Thank you for posting this article, and good suggestions! Please, powers-that-be...please supply FLAC/Apple Lossless and/or WAV downloads for the vinyl-non-loving/liking among us!
  11. YES! We forgot 8-track tape as well. But seriously... Please, powers-that-be, high-quality downloads for the vinyl-non-loving/non-possessing community here...please...
  12. So, to recap - we, the non-vinyl U2 fan community, would prefer the following in place of (crappy) mp3's: 1) FLAC/Apple Lossless flies 2) WAV files 3) Wax cylinders (soy wax, strongly preferred) Are we agreed?
  13. Now, I would buy a wax cylinder player, if they released the gift that way. Yes - that's my favorite format too - but FLAC and Apple Lossless are good formats as well. Please, Powers-That-Be, anything but mp3's for the download...
