    The Horse has Bolted

    For me the horse has bolted. If U2 tour Aus and NZ it needs to be on the back of some new material. When U2 release new music I am caught up with it for a period of time and then my focus shifts. I just dont think I would enjoy a show right now as much as I would if say they released something dynamite and wizzed down under for some raw no nonsense back to basics rock and roll show. In saying this though I would try to get tickets for any U2 show down here.

    Cmon U2

    Also make beautiful music for the soul I love Winter the Linear vetsion such a special song. Do something unthinkable work crazily on brilliant new ideas and give us two completely different albums in one year you can do it guys. Just hammer it out. Dont tour if you want family time for a while thats cool but dont starve us get creative again with the old school team and delight.

    Cmon U2

    Sing songs play guitars and belt drums the way you used to do to increase the power within. You are required in many many peoples lives. You are babes in the woods in rock and roll terms. Supply the masses with a straight forward message of enjoyment of the present devoid of attachments to the past or forseeing of future predicaments. Belt those skins. Set your guitars on fire. Draw breath from a deep place. Recruit the dream team producers Eno Lanois Lillywhite Flood Rick Rubin . Come out swinging with both hands and deliver an uppercut straight to the core of everything you have harnessed from your youth. I and millions of others want U2 back bigger and better than ever.
  6. Thump thump bang bang Slam slam thud thud There goes another dud Not really not in my eyes However to no surprise it is the bind that ties Days go by into weeks then a year or even two sometimes three lo and behold four even Then what appears melts our hearts and can bring tears. I cant pretend to say something you wont. I cant play a single note. They are there in my head though just so that you know now off you go and get ready for the show. Dress in red or that birthday suit. Dont worry your head your ripe as fruit. Roll with it any way you can fire in ya belly and watch more telly.

    Rumours about *SOE* !!! (MERGED)

    Some great music being released so far in 2017 and a U2 record would add to the fun.
  8. Hi Guys. Could you try and get down here sometime this year for a show. Would really appreciate it. Regards Scott.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    Hello U2 people A belated Christmas greeting to you all together with warm wishes for a safe and happy New Year around the corner. What good thing happened to me today? Hmmmm well good things did happen today, went on a blueberry pick with my wife and kids. A really neat thing happened a few days ago, POP was broadcast to my neighbours via my Beats pill+. Now these speakers really do give out a great sound and the ear picks up great vibes from them. It has been a very interesting year with lots of things happening all over the planet and everywhere else. Those of you who have mingled with me on past posts may be wondering where have I been for the last year or so. I can only say to that head down backside up. Now hang on I am not being rude or such. Simply put a kiwi way saying incredibly busy with not much time for anything other than putting bread on the table for my loved ones. I am currently on a two week vacation from the daily grind and loving every minute of it. Some might say getting in touch with myself again, there is that rude inclination again. Moreover finding time to do the things that really matter outside work is what i am getting at. This zoo cat realizes the importance of retaining balance and a big part of 2017 will be about actively seeking that. 2016 saw the birth of our fourth child. Serena Bella Star, A sister to Monica and Paige here on Earth. And to Selena Rose who resides in heaven with the Angels and the All Mighty Father. All the best to you all and stay safe out there. Regards Zoocat SOE on the way. Great news!
  10. Great news this is, I will be trying to bag the super deluxe, awesome looking packages. Also would like to see the real thing here in NZ sometime too.
  11. Perhaps Songs of Experience the album might arrive in time to fit in with the new tour, here,s hoping so, keep filling up the world with that fantastic music guys.
  12. 2005, I heard on the radio U2 are coming to Auckland after 13 years, gotta get tickets, nailed some for the first show through U2.com presale. Second show announced, gonna go ballistic to get em. End up sitting outside Real Groovy on Queen Street for two days waiting for the box office to open on Monday morning. A crowd gathers behind me and stretches for about a mile around the block, heaps of coffee, biscuits and burgers bought in to sustain the troops. Monday morning and I get 4 more for the Saturday show, stoked, hop on the Yamaha and head home. Mum later tells me that a mad U2 fan has just appeared on TV having been holed up outside a record store for two days. We both laugh, she knows what it means to me. Night of the show, right at the front of the walkway, with my brothers, and my Mrs, Po going to City of Blinding Lights, being reduced to tears by a beautifully played acoustic version of Walk On. Spellbound for two or more hours by a blistering set of songs, culminating with Kite, and Bono showing his prowess with the Auckland night breeze. Fly it high Brother, you da man.

    The World Cup Thread

    I hope Brazil win it in flambouyant fashion, in an exciting final against either Argentina or England. I don,t think Spain will be as strong this time around, Germany will be very dangerous, as will France.

    New Members Introduction Thread

    Hi Chris, welcome aboard, there is a wealth of information for you to explore around here. Personally I drift in and out from time to time, I have been into them for a number of years, and am heartened to know that they can still attract a vibrant young audience, Ordinary love certainly is a great tune, as is Invisible in its own unique way. have you got a few albums ? if so, which ones are your favourites.
