    NLOTH vinyl re-issue

    Same boat - about where did the time go - I have so many memories of my first daughter as a baby, all wrapped up on me, as I swayed her to sleep to Moment of Surrender. And blasting Magnificent in the car, too.

    U2 needs to burn for love again...

    Oh. I love this video so much. The burning for love is so palpable. And knowing what a seminal moment this was in U2's career makes it such an electric thrill to watch. And yes, I totally agree, that SOE is an album soaked in love. It is the album that connects with me emotionally more than any other.

    R.I.P. Thread

    I've been thinking of him today, after I read about his passing. Nice to see this thread, thank you dmWay. Wings of Desire is my absolute favorite film of all time. I can't count how many times I have watched it and I am moved every time. And it's thanks to U2 that I discovered the beautiful films of Wim Wenders.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    One year in and I, too, have not retired SOE. It's still one of my favorite albums to listen to, and often. It still feels like a shimmering, beautiful gift.

    U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread

    I saw 2U (Notu2.com) a few times when they used to come up to New England, but they haven't come up my way in years, which is too bad b/c they were great. Around the Boston/NH area in the US, we have Joshua Tree. They don't dress as the band, they just play the music. They do a nice job. However, they don't play nothing from NLOH, SOI or SOE, and they play nothing from Zooropa either. Just the big hits. I would love them to play more recent stuff, or more deep tracks. http://joshuatreeband.com An old friend of mine is in Zoo Station from the Bay Area, CA, and I got to see them once on a visit out there, and they were fantastic!!

    Meet and Greet

    That sounds fishy.

    Sunday Times interview

    Thanks for sharing! This was a really good read. Made me a little too nervous about the end of touring as an actual possibility but I will brush that worry aside and assume that they couldn't possibly actually stop. Not anytime soon, at least.

    U2.com 2018 Subscription FAQ Thread

    Got my vinyl, too! My husband's is on the way. Now to just find a friend with a record player....I agree it's a bit of a bummer for them to be producing records and shipping them to so many people who will not play them. Whatever. I was one of the lucky few whose fan club membership worked out and got me pre-sale tickets. Worth it!!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Yes, of the four I saw - both Bostons, Newark, and MSG3, which were all phenomenal - this was hands-down the best.
  12. The first night I saw 13, right from the E stage, I had the same waterworks. So beautifully and tenderly staged.
  13. 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!
  14. Oh wow. I cannot remember the last time I saw something with so many closeups of Larry. Thank you for sharing!! That was great!
