  1. I’ve had my bike for a year and only just noticed there are a handful of ALL U2 rides (there are a ton of rides featuring single songs). 

    Anyone interested in doing a weekly regular ride? I ride pretty much daily but my times are all over the shop - weekends I can be consistent (AKA first thing in the morning and can align time zones)  

    I did two all U2 rides today (45min Sunday Bloody Sunday and 20min theme ride) and it was awesome!

    So glad that Cologne will happen.

    As I am taking my daughter to her first U2 concert: where is the best place to stand (we stand inside, left side) to give her the "full experience" and a good view on the band "in person"?

    I would stand on the "left" side (Edge's side of the stage) halfway between the I and the E stage - you'll have a great veiw of both and as the band moves on the catwalk. I hope your daughter has a great first show!

    It was AMAZING!!!! I screamed, I cried, I danced.  I was SO HAPPY to hear it live again. Last time I heard it live was March 1992.

    It really was. I love that they re-arranged some songs + added non-tour songs to this show. They really put so much thought into this show and we all felt it.

  4. I also forgot, in the madness of the actual show itself, how AMAZING the Apollo version of Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses was - the re-broadcast yesterday reminded me of how much I loved it. It's so joyous - I can't think of another way to put it. The drums were more at the front and it doesn't sound as dark as the album version. I hope they incorporate this version into the live shows (I need to go back and listen to Tulsa - I was in the house that night but can't remember if it sounded more album version or Apollo version).


  5. Just boarded my scary early flight home - wanted to say my favourite bit of last night (if I had to pick one) was the AOH/Desire/When Love Comes to Town/Stuck In a Moment (dedicated to Tony Bourdain) with the Sun Ra Arkestra. I didn’t take that many photos and only took 1 vid (AOH) - such an awesome moment. Still buzzing and it was hard to get what little sleep I could last night before my flight.

  6. I have no idea if this is true but someone from Sirius told us that the seats have been removed and the floor is GA for tonight. It seems unlikely as they were bolted down theater seats but would explain why it seemed like a ton of tickets weren’t given away as that would lower total capacity. Again: I haven’t gone in yet so take that with a very big grain of salt. 


  7. Also believe that Mods are going to turn this into a live thread of sorts if I remember right so I’m gonna just leave this right here: 

    Assuming a 20-ish song setlist - it’s being broadcast so hoping it’s not super short. My for-fun-only prediction (AKA don’t nitpick my list please). Anyone else want to draw one up?

  8. My friend is stuck on the exit off ramp to the stadium - has been there over 45min. Apparently people are ditching their cars on the side of the freeway and walking down the off ramp as it’s at a standstill. I’m so bummed for him. 

     

    Ok he finally parked (got one of the last spots) and headed in. At least he didn’t miss a huge chunk of the show.

    Lukylsp...PM me your real name and I’ll find u on FB and add you to the group....it was hard to find, (maybe cuz it’s listed as a secret group??) someone had to send me the link

    Oh no worries - my email isn’t searchable on Facebook and my name probably has a ton of search results. I tried looking for the group on FB but nothing came up so I assumed it was a secret/hidden group.
