  1. Oh, thank you so much for posting all this! When I talked to one of the moderators about starting this thread, I was hoping it would be a thread for all the U2 tributes worldwide. Thank you for making this thread more like it was intended to be! I’m not in the UK, but if you ever cross the pond, I’d gladly catch a show! I think there is at least one subscriber who regularly posts here who has seen you play. Maybe she’ll see these posts and reply. Thanks again! 😎
  2. The last three dates from the list above are coming up soon. ...AND... On Friday, October 11th, UF are playing the Tupelo Music Hall in Derry, NH. So, if you are in that part of New England, they are coming! Also, the previous weekend, they are playing in Albany, NY (I think on Saturday, Oct. 5th, but I have to check on that.) Their autumn schedule is filling out. Of course, when I know more dates, I’ll post them here.
  3. This is an intriguing photo. Is it a joking FU to everyone acknowledging that he is now another year older, or is it a special FU dedicated to Elton John, vis a vis, the elaborate glasses? The mind boggles... Anyway, happy birthday to two of the men I admire most: The Edge and my younger brother Mark (R.I.P. - he passed in 1996).
  4. I’ve neglected this thread for a bit - I’ll catch everyone up soon. BUT, for now, I am here...
  5. I wonder if there will be an extra volume released eventually from these two tours, like "Edge's Picks" came out after the original "U22" compilation from the U2360 tour. It would be nice to have a collection of the rarely/never-previously played (or virtually reinvented, e.g., "New Year's Day", "Dirty Day") songs from the i&e and e&i tours in addition to what we are getting. I have no problem with what's on these two discs; I just hope for a bit more - the total "Innocence and Experience" tour cycle had a lot of exceptional performances that deserve to be commemorated.
  6. Bump to keep the thread from archiving. Shows are coming in August and the autumn. 😎
  7. ...and what a Men’s Final today! Djokovic holds on to beat Federer 7-6, 1-6, 7-6, 4-6, 13-12 (and winning the first-ever 5th-set tiebreak in a Grand Slam Major tournament ever, 7-3). Just a phenomenal match which confirmed that these two are two of the very best in the world in tennis, and the best two on grass courts specifically. AMAZING Final! 🎾
  8. Federer was/is amazing - he always seems to play his very best at Wimbledon. IMHO, the only guy who may be able to beat him is playing him in the Final. It should be an epic match tomorrow. Also, well done to Simona Halep, who decisively beat Serena Williams today, 6-2, 6-2! Very impressive accomplishment!
  9. Fully agreed on both counts!

    R.I.P. Thread

    I even liked him in the “Men In Black” films and in a more obscure one, “The Man Who Fell To Earth”, acting along side of David Bowie (I think it was his first film). He was a very versatile actor. R.I.P.
  11. ...and a bump for team excellence! 😎
  12. Well done to the US Women’s National Soccer Team! 😎 A nice 2-0 victory over the brave effort by The Netherlands! USA! USA! USA! 🇺🇸⚽😎 (Go Men’s Team later tonight!)
  13. Condolences to England today; Sweden were just a bit better. Go, Team USA tomorrow (twice - women's and men's teams)! 😎
  14. So were they "right here, right now" when you saw them? 😉 (I did always like that song. Additional "Fun Fact Of The Day" - the band members of Jesus Jones attended (in later years, not at the same time) the same English private school as the original members of Genesis. Strange but true...)
  15. ...and we’re playing The Netherlands! A good result for them! (Of course, we need to beat them on Sunday, but I am happy for them that they are there.) Good luck to England as well in the 3rd place game against Sweden on Saturday!
  16. You're a good friend. 😄 "Get Lucky" (Loverboy's 2nd album) was good; I really liked it when I first heard it. Their debut album was also good early 80s "hard rock" (before that general sound later morphed into embarrassing "hair metal" later in the decade 🤮). They had that Aldo Nova, Night Ranger kind of vibe back then. Now after "Get Lucky", they did get quite a bit less impressive. Then grunge killed them off - I think that would have to go down as a metaphorical "mercy killing". 😄 Go have some kitschy fun - you'll thank yourself for it. 😎
  17. YAY, US Women’s National Soccer Team! Well played today! Good luck in the Final on Sunday! ⚽ (...and good luck to England on Saturday; I hope you finish 3rd. You’ll get your WC title someday soon.)
  18. That was an amazing result. Naomi Osaka and Maria Sharapova both losing in the first round was a shocking state of affairs as well. Wimbledon is great to watch. 🎾
  19. They are always great - I never miss them. I'm glad you had a good time!
  20. Well done on seeing The Who! I saw them twice in May and am seeing them again at MSG in September. You’re going to love the show, especially with Eddie Vedder et al. as special guests! Have a good time!
  21. ...and now that show is tomorrow! 😎 Bethel Woods, NY and Yes, here I come!
  22. I second that hope. I don’t think they’re going to be SOI and SOE tracks that were played on the i&e and e&i tours exclusively; including TLTTGYA on this set pretty much confirms that (yes, it’s a SOE track, but it was played on the JT anniversary tour). I also hope that some deserving rarities from the two tours will be included as well.
  23. Yes - here's their YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/BonoNL and their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/BonoNL Thanks for letting us know about them!
  24. Thank you, and thanks for sharing this! I also got an e-mail from Bethel Woods today, and you're right! After checking out their website, it looks like a great place! I might have to take in all the sights before the show and/or the following morning - I didn't know there was so much there! I think I'll want to see another show there too. Thanks for replying!
  25. How was Bethel Woods, NY as a venue? I’m seeing Yes next week there, and it’s my first time visiting the place. Was the parking ok?
