    U2 dreams

    I dreamt the other night that Edge had some document he needed me to edit. And I kept saying loudly to anyone who would listen, because I knew how ridiculous it sounded and I couldn't quite believe it was true: "Oh, I have to go, Edge from U2 needs me to edit some documents for him!!" I got the job done and sent the flash drive off to him via mail or courier or something. That was it! So random.
  2. Wow, that was hard to watch. Bono looked scared during Red Flag Day. I hope this is minor and temporary. My heart goes out to Bono, the band, and the entire arena full of fans.

    U2 dreams

    I find it crazy that you only just started dreaming about U2! U2 dreams have been a mainstay of my sleep life for about, oh, 30 years!! LOL.

    U2 dreams

    I have had dozens of dreams over the years about U2. Usually around tour time, or after watching videos of them before bed. The best are when I get a tiny show, like in a school auditorium, or when I just hang out with the band and become one of their friends - though they always slip away and disappear without ever saying goodbye! Once I even got Adam's cell phone number in a dream! One of my favorites was sitting and having a long talk with Bono about politics and organizing, and all the work he's done, and my telling him what a gift he is to the world and, he perked up and said "Really? You really think I'm that good? That means so much to me."
  5. Here's a video of a performance, 1992 or so, of Adam when he played with the traditional musician Sharon Shannon. Adam is interviewed at 2:30, and they all play at 5:43.
  6. I am sorry you and your wife had that experience. I had almost the same exact experience at a Boston show in 2015. It was so upsetting and rattling. I tried not to let it ruin my show but it was really hard.
  7. Yes, of the four I saw - both Bostons, Newark, and MSG3, which were all phenomenal - this was hands-down the best.
  8. The first night I saw 13, right from the E stage, I had the same waterworks. So beautifully and tenderly staged.
  9. Every spot is great! They spend a lot of time on the main stage, and 6 or 7 songs on E stage, and a few more Bono is at E stage, and some time on the cat walk!
  10. Oh! I love Sweet Fire of Love! I used to listen to that all the time! I'd say my faves are The Ground Beneath Her Feet and In the Name of the Father
  11. Oh wow. I cannot remember the last time I saw something with so many closeups of Larry. Thank you for sharing!! That was great!

    Fan gatherings on Friday night?

    I'll be doing the GA line but I second the Joshua Tree band! I go see them every few months in NH and they are great.
  13. Except that a few years ago, Bono had talked about it being a trilogy. This was from a 2014 Rolling Stone article. Not that I am holding Bono to something he blabbed to Rolling Stone 4 years ago, LOL! ("Shootin' off my mouth, that's another great thing about me") Bono is already promising a follow-up album to Songs of Innocence, called Songs of Experience, that he'd like to have out as soon as 18 months from now. "We're hoping Songs of Experience will be less about intimacy," says bassist Adam Clayton, "and more about a celebration of sorts." The band's tentative plans are to take the indoor Songs of Innocence tour outside once the second album comes out. And there's another twist: In 2009, Bono promised that U2 would quickly follow up No Line on the Horizon with a more meditative companion album, Songs of Ascent. There has been no sign of it since, but Bono now sees it as the third part of the trilogy. "Songs of Ascent will come," he promises. "And there are some beautiful songs." That said, I am in no rush and respect whatever time they want to take to rest and let the creative juices simmer! But I just love imagining what a U2 album named Songs of Ascent would sound like.
  14. I hear you on Coldplay. They don't stir me deeply - I just like listening to them, and really like X & Y start to finish. I, too, regret never seeing the Talking Heads! I saw David Byrne by himself in a small theater in Ithaca, NY in the 90s, but not the band. A few times I have gotten to see Stop Making Sense at a movie theater and it's so incredible. I like later DM too!! I just get especially happy when I listen to the early stuff. I'll agree about Fez and Cedars having that sound. Yesterday in the car my little one asked for, instead of Les Mis, "That U2 song where they sing 'You are....walking on. You and I are....walking on.'" How cute. Why, yes, five-year-old, I'd be happy to play American Soul for you! And yes, I bet most of us here are over 40!
