    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    A nice U2-oriented site gave me the gift of a lossless version of the Dublin ZooTV show. Now, that is a good thing. 😎

    What concert are you seeing next?

    Tonight it was Peter Murphy and David J. commemorating the 40th anniversary of Bauhaus’ “In The Flat Field” (i.e., their debut album). It was awesome! 😎 Even both feeling under the weather didn’t stop them from putting on a great show.

    What Hasn't U2 Released Yet That You Want?

    That's a good suggestion. I'd also like them to bring back the old U2.com gifts from the past to be gotten by those who weren't members yet when they were new or by those who were members but have become separated from them in the meantime. There must be extras of many of those floating around somewhere and/or the masters for these things must still be usable for additional copies. U2 would be getting the money instead of those re-selling them on eBay at extortionate prices.

    What Hasn't U2 Released Yet That You Want?

    I would also like U2-3D to see an official release. Most BluRay players can play 3D-BluRays - of course, you would still need a TV that can process the 3D signal as well, but those are available too (and you would need the special glasses, but most people have access to those as well). I also saw it at an IMAX theater when it first came out (in NYC) - I sort of count it as one of the Vertigo tour shows I attended. The feeling of actually being at the show was that keen. One of the images I remember the most was the drink that was on a table behind Larry while he was playing - it looked like you could just reach out and grab it. Amazing visual effects... Since I know it was filmed, I wish they would release the Washington, DC ZooTV show too, warts and all (and a arena show of ZooTV from anywhere - it would be cool to see that show as it originally appeared). If Berlin is the official release for the e&i tour (as it looks it will be), I hope they someday release the DC show that was filmed there too. I'll have to think more, but those are good for starters.
  7. Yes, I would too!

    U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread

    Yes, that was an especially good show at a great venue! I like how active they have been since the e&i tour has ended - they have played at least four shows in the greater Philadelphia area since then and they are playing a few more here before the end of April. I hope that trend continues! 😎

    U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread

    WOW! THAT is an impressive list! The funny thing reading this list is that I have been to many of the towns/venues (e.g., I've been to the venues you listed in Leek and Bilston, and I know where those venues are in Stoke-on-Trent, Derby, and Chesterfield - I would have loved to have seen a U2 tribute when I was still living there; and there's even a show in The Cavern Club in Liverpool! See a U2 show and explore the history of The Beatles at the same time...). I hope @doctornickriviera sees this list!

    U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread

    If I see any going your way, I’ll let you know. However, these bands seem to be regional in the US. The one I see (Unforgettable Fire) is NYC-based; thus, they play between Boston and Philadelphia/NJ mostly. I’m a bit surprised that there wouldn’t be a good one in the Chicagoland area. Maybe a poster from there would be more in-the-know. You have seen more U2 tribute bands than I have! I have been very lucky with one excellent one. I’m glad you got to see amazing ones.

    ...or you can go to your first post above and edit the “they” at the beginning to “U2Baby” - then Robert’s your mother’s brother. 👍😎

    Naughty Doctor... I go to the trouble of creating a U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread and you just bugger off and start a new one of your own. http://zootopia.u2.com/forums/topic/40229-u2-tribute-band-clearinghouse-thread/ @Canadanne is a regular poster there too. Maybe a nice mod will combine the threads... @mich40 @Max Tsukino
  15. You are educating your children well. Since you will only get confirmed, official news here, in addition to the u2songs.com site I quoted above, you may find these sites useful if you are OK with learning unofficial news as soon as it makes the rounds (of course, being unofficial, not everything you hear may come to fruition - however, these sites are pretty good at being in the loop very early on) : https://www.atu2.com/ https://u2start.com/ Happy educating!
