  1. How about an issue of getting charged $1,000 dollars in tickets and no tickets to show for it? Is that something that can be brought to TM's attention? This was for today's general sale for the NYC shows.
  2. It's true man. Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Depeche Mode, Arcade Fire, Pearl Jam these bands stay clear from mainstream. Yet remain inventive and distinctive in their own way. There are many more out there. Why is Bono so concerned about being played on the radio? Radio is shit. The charts are shit. U2 are certainly not shit! There is one band, not so new but not what you can call "veterans", they said once (and I'm paraphrasing)...We have a cult following, which is enough for us to do what we want to do, creatively. That's all we want. If we can do this for the rest of our lives, we don't need huge hits.... Words to live by for any band who wants to stay relevant in their fans eyes.
  3. febottoni - no worries about how the message is taken. It won't be taken in any way, politely or otherwise. Trust me...all the suggestions and downright harsh criticisms will fall on deaf ears, it has for a while now (I've been here for 8 years). Good luck to you if you are trying to make a difference, politely...I wish you well, truly.
  4. Another note... Pop was a pretty damn good album...come on, U2!! Get yourselves out of that "needs to sound like pop to be good" mentality. With songs like "Please, Gone, Mofo, If God Would Send His Angels, Last Night on Earth", you can surely play some of those songs in concert. Another thing...stop regurgitating different versions of SBS, New Year's Day, and Pride and packaging them up and calling them subscription gifts. We deserve better than that, we're not dumb. Also, many bands provide videos, little documentaries about their progress on new material. We are thrown "a bone" every now and then, to keep us engaged. We loved Adam's homemade videos last go round....what about now? I haven't gotten notice on ANYTHING. If you have done it...I don't know about. I've paid for my subscription, a heads-up would be nice. Thus the truth comes out, why I feel the way I do. OK...I've posted about a decade's worth of complaints for myself. Those that know me, know...I'm not a complainer. I'm done....going back into hiding until these guys do something to draw me back in... LATAAZ!!!
  5. To tell you the truth, as much as I loved this band, they are no longer at the top of my list. It pains me to say that, truly. Although, they've had a great run, particularly in the beginning, and yes, "No Line..." was a good album for the most part. I can't motivate myself at the present time to listen to them. I don't know what it is but it will take quite a bit of creativity with this next album for me to fall in love, the way I used to be. I've found many great bands to be so much more relevant and true to their roots and fans. I'm not saying the charity work is a bad thing, but it's true, I feel U2 fans are not a priority. At least not within the last decade....possibly more. For now my heart is being occupied by other bands <3
