    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Elevation was awesome. Singing that final EL-A-VA-TION of each chorus is like a tiny bit of heaven sent down for all of us to sing together. It's one of my favorite parts of the show. I've been calling it a story. Others have used narrative which seems much more apropos. There is a definitive narrative to this show as it wraps up SOI and addresses what it happening in America. I've been trying to figure out how Little Things and Landlady and Wild Horses could fit into the narrative. I wanted to hear them all. The show was so good it did not matter even though I really want to hear all three live. Pride is the one song I least want to hear because I've heard it so many times. It was one of the best parts of the show. I too wanted to have a more varied setlist but the one they are doing works and it does so very well. Acrobat is sensational. I can't think of a word to describe how amazing it is live. I'm just a fan saying this and giving my opinion. If you are seeing the show in America-I doubt the setlist is going to change much. Red Flag Day and Gloria and All Because Of You seem to be the three variables. I hope you have a great time. It's a stunning show. 13 was so great it gives me goosebumps typing this.

    The Mood Thread (Reboot)

    I am embarrassed because a friend just caught me in the laundry room of my building while I was singing Maria Carery's We Belong Together. I had seen and heard it on TV earlier during a story about Maria Carey inducting Jermaine Dupri into the Songwiter's Hall of Fame. Apparently that was not a valid excuse.. He held up his cell and said, "Now you actually have a reason to bitch about these things.": Oi. .I'm so busted. I shall have to spend the rest of June and all of July picking up the shattered remains of my manliness while telling myself to never complain about cell phones again.
  3. Would this be in the Red Zone? Anyone know? I'm curious where Brandon Flowers would stand while watching U2. Someone was sitting two rows behind George Lucas at one show. It's nice they can watch and not be bothered.. It's shocking to think it's now been 15 years since Hot Fuss was released.. They still played videos on MTV, albeit only certain hours of the day and night. Mr. Brightside was in heavy duty rotation. There's almost always been someone famous in the house when I've seen U2 shows. Bono has given shout outs every time
  4. Wow. What a beautiful picture. I could not see this when I saw the shows. It makes the whole/narrative make even more sense with Max's previous comment about this transitioning into Pride I am assuming it is Staring At The Sun.. Thanks for posting.

    You look so cute smiling behind those drums, Mich40. You look so happy. It's really cool.

    The World Cup Thread

    That's funny-I wonder if anyone has ever mistaken their side for the other one. Thank you, padawanbeck84. FIFA helps a lot, thanks. I really appreciate it.
  7. I just went from envious to jealous; but it's U2. Wow. That gave me goosebumps, DeirdreBell.

    The World Cup Thread

    I'm watching it right now. It sure is fun to watch. Is there anywhere I can make sense of how it all works? I'm hooked. It's addictive without understanding it all. I saw the link above and looked. I did a search and came up with many, many results. Is there a specific site that explains it well or is it confusing by nature-like college basketball in the USA?

    funny. I know quite a few male doctors who would not have practices were it not for good female nurses at the controls. I am very anxious about my current president being in Singapore and winging it not too many hours from now.. I'm hopeful because I am still laughing at Prime Minister Trudeau's joke about NAFTA remaining intact after my president joked that Canada would abolish all tariffs upon his country's goods. Touche' Hats off to Canada. I'm envious of your leader. I am encouranged by what Marcon and Angela Merkel said in response to my current president siging a treaty at a G7 summit and then abolishing it while taking his ball and going home. I'm very anxious about the US/North Korea summit. I'm frightened because the whole process seems like throwing two scorpions into the same jar.. I'm hoping and I'm praying that something good will come of it. I'm fearful it will be another this is what it is today and tomorrow it will no longer be because I say so and I am president. My country used to be great. I'm sad that's no longer true. I still have hope that the rest of the world knows this man is not who we are.

    How do you think they could do that? It was the song I most wanted. It would be nice to know it makes its way to Europe.

    This American would love to see Robbie Williams do an unplugged show.

    That's funny. No excuses are needed. I usually don't get it no matter the time of day or night. haha
  15. Is everyone aware that Ticketmaster has a policy where if you see better seats for a show after purchasing seats-You can trade your seats for better ones of equal value? I ask because most people I tell this to are not aware of it. At least it's something. What is happening with ticketing sucks. I never thought it could get worse yet it has. Sorry to whomever paid full price-look at the map and swap for better seats if they are available. At least it's something.
  16. I hope everyone has a great show. I hope those who are going to go stand and wait in case they can find some tickets do find them and they're up front.

    43 685 Still cold and cloudy and gloomy today. If it does not warm up guickly, Lake Michigan is going to stay cold which mean cold and fog a good deal of the Summer. Can England send us a bit of that heat and Sun shining?
  18. Congrats to everyone who won tickets. I hope you all have a great time this evening.

    I was referencing the 360 tour, which I think you know but want to make sure. I was being serious but silly.

    Woo Hoo. Viva Espana. I forgot and missed the match. I'm quite angry with myself. Professional tennis beginning is one of my favorite parts of June. I have a phone with a calendar and alarm. I dislike cell phones but at least I could have seen the match had I used mine. 😎 A very foggy and misty evening on Lake Michigan count: 43 680:

    Many thanks for this and to another for posting a link of the transcripts. They might be one and the same. It is really nice to read and listen to them.. I hope the bluray has a how did they do that documentary about scary Macphisto and Bono in front of that mirror. It's one of the coolest yet most frightening things I've seen. For me it was the definitive moment of both shows I saw. It gave me hope even though it's scary.

    Neil Young and Pearl Jam were awesome unplugged. I'd love it if someone revived the unplugged format. Springsteen did a plugged show, with the un part crossed out. It was great as well. It seems a prime format for U2 as they'd somehow innovate an already perfect thing.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    The app/AR was no big deal. I could not close the app easily so I turned off my phone before the end of the AR. It was cool for about thirty seconds. I was looking at my phone yet Bono was singing live in front of me. I'd rather watch him in person. For me it was more of a disctraction than anything. Not many people were using it in Chicago. Most were looking at the phones of others to get a quick glimpse of the AR and then went back to watching Bono in real life.
