    Favourite tour of the last 4 years?

    I voted for EI. It's difficult, for me, to distinguish between IE and EI. JT was like an intermission between the two. That is not meant to diminish TJT30 show. IE and EI were like one long show spread out over a period of time. My vote is for !E/EI. When I choose-EI is my favorite U2 tour ever. I'm not sure that would be true without IE.

    ACHTUNG BABY is 27 ..........

    When I think back to past memories, Achtung Baby is the album I use to measure time. I can always gauge the year and it's AB that is the measuring point forward or back. It changed my life and how I viewed music and concerts. I still think it's the only best album since Sgt. Pepper's. I will never forget putting in the CD, hearing the opening of Zoo Station and wondering, 'What is this?'. It is a favorite musical moment.

    Been reading them and I am very thankful I can. The difference between reading the transcript and watching the vid is interesting.

    U2 Player not Working

    It's not working for me either. I can use different services just mentioning it in case it matters.

    Berlin Live Thread #U2eiTour

    Thanks. It was conjecture on my part. I'd like to see them rest and then keep going but wouldn't we all? The thought of no U2 show for a few years in unbearable. I/We got spoiled over the last four years.

    The Mood Thread (Reboot)

    I'm stressed because I'm suddenly moving on Dec 1. It was supposed to be November then February and suddenly it's Dec 1 and I just found out today.

    Evil arts. I like how you worded it.

    Berlin Live Thread #U2eiTour

    I had wondered if they'd start back to touring sooner than people thought because they are in such good form right now. They've always been great live. To me, they seem to have reached a new level. Why stop for a long period of time? All the EI shows sounded so good; especially toward the end of the EI tour. Stadium? I had wondered if they would do EI in stadiums the way they took Vertigo from arenas in America to stadiums in Europe. A twinge of envy still hits me when I see the on those huge screens in Europe for that part of the Vertigo tour. No way can I get to Australia or New Zealand but there's always these live threads.

    Say what? Don't tease me! I have not heard any rumor. May I ask what you mean? I keep hoping they'll do another leg of EI and hit Chicago again but I feel selfish because others did not get this tour. I seriously doubt they will but I'm still hoping because I don't want to let go of this tour.

    U2.com 2018 Subscription FAQ Thread

    I got my gift in the mail. There was a lag between when I got my email saying it had been shipped and when the actual tracking number appeared in my account; in the store; under orders; at the bottom of the page. When I went into my account-it originally said the shipment date was last May, which is when I renewed my subscription. I could see that was the case so I ignored it. The same thing has happened in the past so I knew to not worry. I got the email, saying it had been shipped, on November 1, 2018. The email did provide tracking info but it takes a bit for any actual information to appear. It says the shipment is being readied or processed or something of the sort. It took a week or so before I could track and see concrete shipping details. I received my vinyl on November 14. It's heavyweight vinyl. I really like the inner sleeve picture. The other pictures, which were inserted in the sleeve, are also nice. They brought back pleasant Rattle and Hum memories. It was not damaged. I can tape the box back up and put it away for safe keeping-next to TJT30 vinyls. I think I'm going to frame one of the inserted pics and put it on a wall, along with my favorite IE lithograph. All in all, it was a smooth process because I knew, from past experience, not to worry about the timing of it.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    The defense rests and hides under the table awaiting its inevitable defeat. Muttering I knew would be futile. I must not be as sobered from the live show as I thought I was. You and your tiny fonts. I squinted and now I squirm. ?

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    You seem like such a nice guy. I came in here hoping no one had read what I posted. I am horrified at how overwritten it is. I just had a panic attack hoping I could edit out 90% of what you quoted before anyone saw and now it's too late. ? Lol. I was on a post Cologne EI, riding the wave, high. I still am but sobered up a bit. It's not so much having a lot on my plate as it was the stress of not wanting to disappoint her. Thanks. I need a, save, edit and submit my Zoo posts at a later time, option for my 2019 subscriber gift. The Cologne show was my real good thing today.

    What do you get

    The first thing they suggest is you sign out of this site, clear your browser history and then sign back into the site. If you are still having a problem with the player, you might want to make sure flash is allowed in your browser settings. I had the same problem. I allowed it and all is working now. If that is not it then it's probably some other setting with your browser. I'm by no means an expert but it worked for me. I'm sorry you are disappointed. If you start delving into the threads, there's a good chance you'll find a lot stuff you like. This site is full of good things and kind people. Look for subscriber exclusives and you'll find video of things you never would have seen had you not subscribed. There is one interview with the Edge on a boat on the River Thames in London, when they were recently playing London. I've yet to see that one so it's my first suggestion that comes to mind. If changing your settings does not work just keep asking and someone will help you. The mods help me all the time. I hope you enjoy the Zoo.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    I'm laughing because I just asked a friend about helping me take mine apart and make sure it had a proper tune up. I'm thinking about the holidays too. That's not mentioning how good it is for our hearts and general health.
