  1. Good version of Acrobat, but I hope that embarrassing MacPhisto sequence is a once off.
  2. I got tickets in the presale for 360 for their first Perth show for my wife and I. Then when the second night was announced I got tickets for that show for me and a mate. My wife was all like "You're already seeing them, why do you have to go twice?" My reason was that they're playing my home town and it could be the last time I get to see them. Glad I did because not only was it way better than the first night, but at this rate it looks like it could be the last time.
  3. Did they paint their toenails red? They're probably hiding in the strawberry patch.
  4. I've said previously that I reckon it would be hilarious if Bono went on his usual rant and ended it with "but hey, don't let the bastards grind you down." Crowd gets excited... then the band just plays Pride. (Sort of happened to me at 360 when they were playing the Zooropa chatter, I'm thinking "Zooropa? They never play that!" and then played COBL instead.)
  5. Prediction 1: The fans who wanted Acrobat will finally get their wish. Prediction 2: They'll now complain about how it was played.
  6. Now if they can just apply that to every public place around the planet.
  7. Were you here when the website got updated for NLOTH and users had trouble logging in? It was like they thought Larry was plugging and unplugging ethernet cables while Edge was coding.
  8. I agree but only because they seem to be performing it out of duty. On the I&E special Bono looked utterly bored singing it. I'd rather see them do a random song with enthusiasm than a hit on autopilot.
  9. Beautiful Day The good thing about opening 360 with it was it got it out the way early and anything after it was almost guaranteed to be better.
  10. A few years ago Arnold Schwarzenegger was over here giving a talk about business. After the seminar, a few had paid about $10,000 each to have dinner with him. Apparently he wasn't there very long (didn't even finish his meal iirc) before one of his people ushered him away for something else. The people who coughed up 10k for it weren't impressed.
  11. I was recently telling a mate how jealous I was of him 'cause he got to see Hawkmoon on the Lovetown Tour. Think it was the first time they played it live too.
  12. Same thing happened to me with HTDAAB. A music shop had it on the shelves two days early, but $10 more than RRP of other stores. Went to another store to see if they had it cheaper, they said it wasn't out until the next week. So I went back to the other store and paid $10 more to get it two days early. Back on topic, R&H is a criminally underrated album, some of the rarely played stuff would be welcomed.
  13. The last song of their's I liked was Speed of Sound, and that was about 12 years ago. Even then I probably only liked it because it sounded U2-ish. Where The Streets Have No Name is imo U2's most epic song (that doesn't mean it's their best song, just the most epic) and they have very wisely never tried to top it. Coldplay seems to want every song to be Streets. And then Streets on steroids.
  14. In a previous thread I said that I thought NLOTH felt like a companion piece to Pop: Boots/Discotheque, Cedars/Wake Up Dead Man, Stand Up Comedy/Holy Joe I reckon TUF, especially the B-sides, hints at an early Achtung Baby.
  15. I was at the front at 360 and Adam didn't pull me up on stage and hand me his bass so I could rip into God Part II in front of 60,000 people. What a jerk.
  16. Cheers. Rattle and Hum is a great album, I put it equal with The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby. I became a fan in the early '90s and was oblivious to the backlash it copped and at the time couldn't understand why some didn't like it.
  17. I was talking to a mate about this last night. He used to be a fan but has gone off them in the last few years. He went to some Lovetown shows back in the day, I was telling him last night how they've only played Hawkmoon about 7 times and he was at one of the shows to hear it and how jealous I am.
  18. Orchestra performing the synth riff from Mofo!
  19. Good thing: Beautiful Day can be dropped from an entire tour for a new song. Bad thing: A new song that sounds pretty much exactly like Beautiful Day.
  20. American Soul You're The Best Thing About Me Even Better Than The Real Thing (Fish Out Of Water mix) Mysterious Ways Get Out Of Your Own Way Summer Of Love Miracle Of Joey Ramone California Another Time Another Place Bullet The Blue Sky Lights of Home Desire (ZooTV version) 13 A Sort Of Homecoming One Where The Streets Have No Name -------- The Blackout With Or Without You Mofo Love Is All We Have Left The Little Things That Give You Away
  21. Not all the way through yet, but so far I think it's better than NLOTH and SOI.
