  1. They did film a few Joshua Tree shows, but they were holding back on releasing the video until after E&I was done and dusted. I do believe the rumour I've heard (and I should emphasise that it's only a rumour) was that TJT could be out in spring. Dunno when the E&I release will be out.
  2. 44487 - Thinking of all retail employees currently trying to survive Black Friday. Obligatory reminder to be nice to the people in uniform when rushing to get your hands on that 0.01% discounted 40" TV.
  3. In a way I feel like all the last three tours have been essential to each other. Had the band not done the full Joshua Tree tour and kept it to just a few shows as originally planned, they wouldn't have made the decision to remove all trace of the album from the EI setlist, which would've ultimately made it a different show. That said I feel like The Joshua Tree tour became part of the whole story rather than just an intermission - it was a big moment in the band's history and stands, in my opinion, as a major plot piece on the road from innocence to experience and back. Ultimately I've come to the conclusion that the majority of voters are going for and gone with EI - but equally I have to acknowledge that without IE and TJT30, EI wouldn't have been the show it was.
  4. Anyone watched this video on the band's Instagram? I was having an okay day, then I watched it, and now I'm a mess.

  6. From what the source says this tour wouldn't be part of the EI tour. That said I wouldn't be surprised if the setlist included a lot of Innocence/Joshua Tree/Experience material to give the Ozzies a taste of what they'd missed previously.
  7. Love this photo, my tour t-shirt has this photo on it!
  8. It's been almost 24 hours. The withdrawal symptoms have kicked in.
  9. I read that. There's a whole article detailing a few other bits which suggest the band might not be totally silent. https://www.u2songs.com/news/ready_for_whats_next
  10. And so it's over. At the far end of experience, we have recovered our innocence.
  11. Created a poll in the general thread asking what seems to be the question of questions: which tour from the last 4 years was your favourite?
  12. Felt the need to ask this question. I honestly can't bring myself to give an answer because I genuinely don't know.
  13. Setlist wise, the last four years have been a goldmine. We've had: -At least one song played from every album -The return of A Sort of Homecoming, Exit, Staring At the Sun, Wild Horses, etc. -The live debuts of Red Hill Mining Town and Acrobat -A song from Pop FINALLY making a return as a regular (even though it wasn't for the whole tour) -9 out of 11 Songs of Innocence -12 out of 13 Songs of Experience -The entirety of The Joshua Tree -3 quarters of Achtung Baby Never say they don't spoil us!
  14. I've gotta say, a massive thanks to you guys for being great company on this tour and indeed during the past 4 years of U2-related adventures. And of course, thank you to Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry for all the content they've given us over the last 4 years, and, on a personal level, for 4 mind-blowing shows. Gonna miss this stuff over the next few years, but can't wait to do it all again sooner or later.
  15. Tears in my eyes in London 2 weeks ago, tears in my eyes tonight.
  16. Bono just gave a shoutout to the Zootops! "These last 4 years have been something very special for us, and we're going away now. Thank you for those that follow us from all over the world..."
  17. Bono can't get a word in because the audience won't stop singing!
