    Literary References/Quotes on e+i Tour

    Thank you!!! 😊
  2. I've long had an interest in the literary references Bono throws into songs and on tour, and this tour seems to really be full of them. I've been able to catch a few of them, but I'm wondering if others can help me out. Is there a list anywhere of the poems/quotes Bono recites at the beginning and end of UTEOTW (or at other points during the show)? I know early on, it was usually Psalm 23 at the beginning, but later on he's done "The Garden of Love" by Blake (Atlanta, Philly, Boston), the Introduction to Songs of Experience by Blake (Chicago 2), and quotes from Lord of the Flies (MSG). I know he recited part of "The Divine Image" by Blake in Atlanta, too, but I can't remember where in the show it was. I'm also interested in the books he tears up and throws into the crowd. In Atlanta, it was The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov and Boston 1 was Lord of the Flies. I was near the B stage rail in Boston and noticed that a book got left on the catwalk. It was A Coney Island of the Mind by Ferlinghetti. I'm really curious if it's a different book every night....
  3. It is! Five days later and I still haven't come down from the high if Monday night's show!
  4. Before this last show in Atlanta, I would said Pride. I also wouldn't have believed that I wouldn't miss Streets. But here we are. (That does not mean, however, that I never want to hear Streets again!)

    Atlanta Live Thread #U2eiTour

    I concur, Mich! Monday night was amazing. Atlanta was overdue for a show, and the crowd really let the band know how much they are loved in this town! I swear I saw Bono choke up at the end when the crowd would not stop cheering!

    T shirts

    I wanted the Love is Bigger shirt, but they didn't have my size in Atlanta. Will try again at my next show, but it would be great if they'd sell it online.
  7. Aw thanks! You bring up some good points too though! And I agree that this setlist tells a great story. I was so impressed with it in Atlanta on Monday (my first of two--I'm going to Boston 1 as well). I can't wait to see it again and get more out of it. I've already checked out the book Bono throws into the crowd (or at least the one he did in Atlanta) from the library. LOL
  8. A U2 concert is more like going to a play. It's going to be more or less the same because they're telling a specific story. It's not a jam session where they play whatever strikes their fancy at the moment. Changes to the setlist happen slowly and methodically. It's perfectly legitimate to not like it, but don't fault the band for being what/who they've always (or at least since the 90s) been.

    #BoycottSoETour2018

    Doesn't the 2009 date have something to do with a website update or something?

    Citicard presale successes?

    I got one GA for Boston in the Citi sale. I looked for Nashville and NYC also and got nothing in GA.
  11. I haven't been to any of the places on the album cover (yet), but I have been to the Harmony Motel and the Vaillancourt Fountain (where Bono famously spray painted "Rock and Roll stops the traffic.")

    Limited View??

    It's my experience that GA in a basketball/hockey arena is MUCH less stressful than in a football stadium!
  13. Aw! That's awesome! I was 13, and my older brother had just returned from Desert Storm and took me to the show. My mind was blown! That was the night I became the mega fan I am now.
  14. I watched the implosion live this morning. I went to every U2 show at the Georgia Dome. They were the first concert in the brand new Dome back in Sept 1992. I remember Bono commenting on the new building and saying, I hope y'all can afford it.

    Extra ATL Dates

    For those of us who live in the area, it'll be a traffic nightmare. No public transportation to speak of. I loved that MARTA practically goes to Philips Arena's doorstep. :/
