  2. So I thought that the question asked for the Apollo contest was fun and interesting enough that I decided to start a thread about it. Hope others might be interested in playing along! ?
  3. With the Apollo Theatre contest up, I thought it might be fun and interesting if we were to share our answers. I'm sure there are some people who would rather keep their responses private...and that's certainly understandable, but I figured I'd start a thread for those interested in sharing. Sooooo....here goes: For me the U2 song that most captures the themes of innocence and experience is Original Of The Species. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb was released just a few short months after I became a father for the first time, so this may very well be the song that resonated with me upon first listening more than any other - U2 or otherwise. Both then, and now, Original Of The Species resonates with both innocence and experience in a number of ways. The song itself is a message from a father, or father figure, to a baby/young child, from a place of experience imploring the child to maintain an innocence in her life. In some ways, it is a prayer that the child maintain this innocence...and this is a prayer that I shared for my daughter back then - and that I still share for her and her younger sister today. I also can't help to think of the ways I was going into parenthood wide-eyed back in the fall of 2004, compared to the more experienced parent I am now. As I've found so many times in life - I had so much more to learn than I realized (I suppose that's a theme from another song from the same album though). Simply put - Original of the Species is a song that has provided a level of wisdom that I hope I have put front and center into my parenting ever since. I want my children, and for that matter myself, to learn from experience as we go through life, but to never stop maintaining an important level of innocence - so as to never become too hardened by the world in which we live. So that's me! ? . Anyone else care to share?
  4. Also adding this shot I took with the e&i app, just because it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. ?
  5. Not much I can add beyond my review on the main page...but I will add this: I believe a significantly underrated spot for this show is where I ended up both this week and for i&e - Just outside the Redzone as far toward the middle of the runway as possible. It is a spot where you can see both stages, are far enough back to get a good view of the barricage, and of course have the members band right in front of you on the runway a number of times. Plus, this time around, during Pride you get this...(see attached photo), or Edge if you pick the other side. In any event, if you have another show to go this tour, this is a spot that I HIGHLY recommend! ?
  6. Wonderful review and photos!!!
  7. That's awesome regarding the book! As far as set list is concerned, I do think people got used to greater than usual variety on 2015, and it's hard not to think of this as part 2 of that tour... BUT... They're trying to accomplish something a bit different this time around. We'll see how things look by the time your second show comes around.
  8. Just now realized you had already said what was trying to say, and you said it better! ?
  9. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but : 1) The vast majority of people do only go to one show per tour AND 2) Now that I have seen the show I get it more than before. More than ever before this show is about telling a story, and they happen to have landed on a set that does a phenomenal job of telling said story. I'm sure there will still be some minor tweaks along the way though.
  10. ? SMALL Arena + crowd that hasn't seen the band in almost a decade = LOUD Hopefully that translates to Atlanta not getting skipped again anytime in the near future!
  11. I was actually the sandals guy in that photo! Atlanta gets HOT. I don't worry too much. Maybe I should! Someone did drop something on my foot...fortunately it was a pen! NBD . ?
  12. We. Are. Ready! ?
  13. My friend was able to make it today so it was a non issue. Can't imagine they're still doing sign up this evening, but can't say for certain!
  14. Okay. Day one went well. Hope to meet some people in line tomorrow! ?
  15. On Sunday, is it okay if I sign up for both myself and my friend who is coming with me or do you want everyone who is coming on Monday to sign in in advance?
