  1. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I can see LIAWHL being used as a bridge into Streets.
  2. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Yep I'm a little excited too. I've heard them play live a number of songs I wouldn't have thought possible 5 years ago. With the Joshua Tree tour and hearing the album tracks was awesome and then on I & E I had Gloria, Party Girl, 40, October, Desire, Bad. If they are getting ready to play some rare stuff perhaps I'll get Stories for Boys, I threw a Brick, Two Hearts, love to hear Exit, One Tree Hill and MOTD again, Hawkmoon, So Cruel, Fez/Being Born, This is where you can reach me now.
  3. Flags at shows - how do you feel?

    Yep, not a fan of flag waving in concerts and also in churches!
  4. Hi We’re going to the first London date and I’ve seen them every tour since Zooropa. I dread to think how much we’ve spent going to see them! My fave song, especially live is a Streets. I hope you have a fab time.
  5. Where are you going to see them? any songs you particularly want to hear and see?
  6. 2017 gift

    Apparently mine is on the way.
  7. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I would put my money on them having a break and preparing for the tour.
  8. Our 14 yr old is also in TSwift and she has two tickets for a concert at Wembley in the summer. Lucky for us that I have a cousin who is willing to take her to the concert!
  9. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Not a bad album by any means. I still have issues with it but despite these things it's a good album, better that SOI, just not a great album.
  10. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    In the past Bono has been described as a prophet for our time. I'm not entirely uncomfortable with this description but as Kev Angell and others have said above, it is possible to disagree with Bono (or any other band mbr). I loved the stuff the band has done with Drop the Debt and relief for Africa. I felt the tax issue tainted and took away the good will attached the above and other political interests. The stuff on SOE is very political but possibly because this is the first time criticism has been directed at USA ( I think this is correct?) since Bullet the Blue Sky it feels uncomfortable for some. Maybe it's easier to accept other countries issues are being written about no matter where we live.
  11. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    No...but I've gone off them a bit with their later, more pop/commercial/cheap dance stuff. Much prefer songs like Everything's not Lost, Yellow.
  12. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I'd be pretty sure that the following songs would be played every night on tour: You're the Best Thing Get Out Your Own Way Blackout Little Things Lights of Home Love is Bigger American Soul - possibly only for the American dates Love is All we Have could lead into Streets or even One as well.

    They’ll probably only play regularly 6 songs off the album. Which 6 would you like? They May rotate a couple? So which ones will they never play live?
