  1. Just listened to the new downloads, wonderful stuff! I forgot just how intense Raised By Wolves is - one of my highlights from the I&E tour will forever be watching Larry beating the kit within an inch of its life in the last minute. 

    One thing I'm wondering, is this going to be a compilation of songs from both tours or just a compilation of live cuts from the I&E albums?

    44, 961 That happened to us in Paris too. I think if you go in trying, they will accommodate you the best they can. We were behind some obnoxious American girls in a pastry shop and the shop guy said “bon jour” and one the girls did a little laugh and said, “uh, yeah, we don’t speak French. I want a croissant.” He was so rude to them after that and all I could think was “no wonder the French hate us” Then it was our turn and my husband politely said “bon jour” and proceeded to order in French and then the guy spoke back to us in English. 😂

    44964 - I mean, with the croissant situation, those girls kinda deserved that, based on that quote it went a bit beyond just not bothering with the lingo! I work in food service and let's just say, if you're an unpleasant customer, you're gonna get some very passive-aggressive service...I saw a quote from Bono where he says "Don't p*** off the pizza guy. You're gonna depend on him!" 

    Needless to say, next time I book a trip overseas I'm going to download Duolingo!

    44, 958 - Excited and nervous counting - nearly holiday time and I'm terrified we'll forget something. Or that we'll get there and my brain will go blank language-wise :unsure:

    44959 - Had that exact language thing in Berlin. For some weird reason they can just tell you're not local. My dad would speak in German and whoever he was talking to responded in English! 😂

  4. Okay, so Joshua Tree shows after all. This is just going to make me nostalgic for The Joshua Tree show I was at now! 

    What I do hope for this is that they find some way to fit SOI/E tracks into the set as well, because they’ve only done those songs in the US & Europe (unless you count Best Thing being played on The Joshua Tree tour in South America).  

    One thing I also noted from u2songs was “we have been told the band will start work on a new album after this tour.” Even more good news!

    Then why was it just announced that Noel Gallagher will be U2’s opening??

    Eh? I've checked all of Noel's social media & websites, newest updates are relating to his new single/EP, nothing about U2 on there at all. 

    EDIT: apart from this. Posted purely for laughs. https://www.nme.com/news/music/noel-gallagher-says-hed-choose-bono-to-help-him-get-rid-of-a-dead-boy-2483918

    ...and this is why I don't miss a show by acts I enjoy - you never know how long they (or we, for that matter) will be around.

     

    R.I.P., Ranking Roger, singer with The Beat ("The English Beat" in North America) and General Public. Very sad...

    I'll post in the "What Are You Listening To?" thread too in his honor.

    Sad to hear indeed. I've got some friends who were in a band that supported The Beat a few times when they came and played Brighton. Apparently he was a friendly guy full of advice and wisdom.
