    U2 Tour 2019

    There was something posted by a fansite a couple of months ago that apparently the band's crew have been asked to clear their diaries late in 2019 for some shows. Article is here. https://www.u2songs.com/news/new_u2_tour_rumours_and_home_video_updates

    44666 - Happy 50th birthday Dave Grohl! Cranking a bit of Foo Fighters & Nirvana to show appreciation.

    44652 - Oh man that's sad to hear. Gonna miss shouting "COME ON MURRAY!" and "YES MURRAY!" at the TV when Wimbledon's on. Wish him all the best.

    U2 Experience + Innocence Tour POLL

    One of the most dramatic live tracks from the band I've ever seen, especially so early on in the show.
  5. Felt the need to ask this question. I honestly can't bring myself to give an answer because I genuinely don't know.

    44612 - Counting while indulging in my Christmas chocolate (and albums I got as presents) and battling bad wifi.

    44601 - Speaking of my job, just found what might be my favourite quote from Bono - "Just don't p*ss off the pizza man -- you're going to depend on him!"

    44597 - Another day of me and my colleagues battling the Christmas rush. Given how much people spend at this time of the year I'm surprised anyone has the money to come and eat at Pizza Hut!

    44588 - Counting down until this drone operator at Gatwick Airport does the honourable thing and turns himself into the police. I'm not currently due to fly anywhere but I have a friend who's affected. I feel for everyone at the airport, including staff who must be stressing out big time right now.

    44557 - May has now called off tomorrow's Brexit vote in Parliament. What a coward we have for a prime minister, almost as cowardly as Cameron.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    Thanks! Both went pretty well, should hear back from them by the end of the week.

    Just found out I have two job interviews lined up tomorrow!

    44541 - Not even Bono can talk sense into a Tory. Particularly not one as bloody-minded as May.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Music video for Red Flag Day being premiered tonight apparently as part of the 24 Hours of Reality event regarding climate change.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I keep recognising links between tracks on SOI & SOE that I hadn't made before. It was only recently that I finally made the connection between California and Summer of Love. Just yesterday I also finally realised that Volcano and The Little Things are two sides of the same conversation.

    Last time they did this (with U22 for the 360 tour) the gift the year after was Edge's Picks - some of his personal favourites that didn't make U22. Do we reckon we'll see something similar in 2020?

    Oh yeah, and I'm just gonna bring this back.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Honestly, I feel like this album has been an essential piece of the puzzle that is the last year of my life. I'm still holding out hope that The Little Things comes back into the set on future tours!

    Happy 1st anniversary to an album that's already shot into my top 5 U2 albums.

    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.

    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.

    Ooooh, looking forward to this!

    Favourite tour of the last 4 years?

    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.
