  1. I'm gonna go one further than the people mentioning Blu Ray and say...haven't the band heard of Netflix?
  2. Honestly? Seems a bit half-hearted to me. If the full show does gets a general public release someone will probably rip the whole thing and upload it to YouTube (already happened with the abbreviated broadcast tracks) so a bit impractical too.
  3. RIP Terry Jones. Life of Brian is still a cinematic and comedic gift.
  4. They're the rock/music equivalent of The S*n. They also do negative content regarding Tool, Slipknot, etc. They just want views on their site.
  5. 45318 - Introduced the parents to Cards Against Humanity. Dad won 3 times. WHAT IS HAPPENING?!
  6. 45315 - Hope everyone's been having a good Christmas & Boxing Day!
  7. In the wake of the political mess unfolding here in the UK, Get Out of Your Own Way is becoming a song of personal strength for me.
  8. 45305 - I'm doing the triple bill tonight as well. 9 hours in a cinema, gonna be good!
  9. 45286 - I now feel more of an exhausted, frustrated but unsurprised anger. Like...again? 9 years of Tory damage on display for everyone to see, headed up by a prime minister who hides in a fridge to avoid questions, and...we voted for this again?
  10. You know what's weird about this last show? It's not just the last show of the tour, it's U2's last one of the entire decade. What a decade it's been.
  11. 45279 - I seriously hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the exit poll is forecasting the biggest Tory majority since Thatcher. I am shaking.
  12. Good morning from the UK! Hoping to actually tune into the show this time round, haven't followed this tour that closely. EDIT: Oh. Just seen that it was only the one show.
  13. The National were stunning last night. A beautiful show with lots of unexpected highlights. Matt Berninger came down into the crowd a few times and at one point was within touching distance of me; alas, I was thwarted by the sheer volume of people in the way. The other major thing from the night was when they played their track About Today. It's a breakup song but I guess you could also interpret it as being about losing someone in general (https://genius.com/The-national-about-today-lyrics). A friend of mine passed away a couple of months ago, and when they played About Today it made me think of him. I didn't even cry that hard during With Or Without You at my first U2 show. That was powerful stuff. I also had a couple of friends who were working as part of the stage crew that night. They said it was generally smooth but apparently one time when Matt went in the crowd the stage manager followed to keep him safe, and a fan punched him & gave him two broken ribs. Behave yourselves, people! The security detail are only there for your safety and the safety of the band! Apart from that, great night.
  14. Haven't been here for a while! Had fun watching Jamie Lenman at Patterns in Brighton on my birthday a few weeks ago. I also just bagged a last minute ticket for The National at the Brighton Centre tomorrow night - roughly 5 years after I last saw them at The O2 in London. Frank Turner's coming to the Brighton Dome as part of his solo tour in March, and by then it'll have been a good four years since I last saw him. Feel like I ought to pop along.
  15. Part of me wonders if these CDs are all being delivered by the same person, one at a time. 😂 I mean, I'm glad I got mine but I feel for those who haven't got theirs yet.
  16. Looking at the photos, it's weird to see such a huge towering stage in such a small venue. And yet, in the shots taken from close to the stage, it makes the arena look a lot bigger for some reason.
  17. So...the gist I'm getting from the announcement is that U2 are announcing their own radio station. Anyone else reckon that's the case? I'm a bit confused. Elevation was awesome though. Haven't been following this tour as closely as I'd like to be.
  18. 45253 - First day of December and guess who's already failed Whamageddon? Also, happy 2nd anniversary Songs of Experience!
  19. Mine finally arrived a few days ago. Had been delivered to the wrong address (despite me asking twice for it to be changed) and thankfully was redirected to my current address by my ex-landlord, but at least it's here.
  20. Still waiting in the UK. UPS tracker still not working 2 weeks after I got the email. "UPS could not locate the shipment details for this tracking number. Details are only available for shipments made within the last 120 days. Please verify your information."
  21. 45203 - I'm highly envious of all who got Shadow Man and MacPhisto in the same night.
