  1. When the news is U2-y

    Totally seems like something that would have been written on the big yellow wall in SOI tour. (Seen in Hawaii after the nuclear alarm yesterday.)
  2. Dedication to my fellow U2 fan

    A beautiful tribute to your friend!
  3. U2 songs of experience your possible setlist

    Thematically, they should put Rejoice in the set list as it's the early edition of Bono's "joy as an act of defiance." I was thinking about that song today after the initial scare of the pipe bomb that went off in Times Square. I hadn't heard about the explosion because I had the holiday music station no instead of the news. A coworker called me to let me know about it, and he just sounded so shaken up. Arrived at work to see the surveillance video online of a person in a crowd, just sort of going "poof". Crazy. No one was killed, but there were injuries. The bomb went off early. That guy woke up this morning and tied a pipe bomb to his chest. But what am I supposed to do?
  4. U2 songs of experience your possible setlist

    I really hope they play Every Breaking Wave with the full band. As much as I liked the stripped down piano version, this is one of my favorites off SOI and I'd love to hear it loud...with DRUMS AND BASS and that guitar going chug chug chug.
  5. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Thank you for this! I knew that was familiar but I couldn't put my finger on it. Tying together a song about his mother's death to a song about his own brush with mortality. At the moment this is my favorite song on the album, but that usually shifts around as I listen more. (Then I think, "Ooh, no THIS one's the best. No wait...this one.) Free yourself to be yourself if only you could see yourself. I remember that feeling looming large after my father died - that time is short and what's with all this hiding. Except I had a line from Champions of Red Wine (New Pornographers) stuck on a loop in my head - "I think we could save lives, if we don't live them way undercover."
  6. What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    I've been working too hard to fit in a run, but I can say American Soul is the perfect song for stomping down a NYC sidewalk.
  7. What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    What a great thread! I had a morning of culminations, where after all the ticket buying stress I listened to the new album while finishing up my to do list for a vintage book sale to raise money for my daughter's school library. I felt like weeks of scattered plans and turmoil all came together to some bass and drum. And the sun was out. Loving "Lights of Home" right now. And "Red Flag Day". But the true test of a song do I feel jogging to it. ; )
  8. Who is buying $300 upper level tickets??

    Also, who is selling good lowers to DC for $9250 each????
  9. New Presales: Resetup?

    This is for the general sale, so it's 4 tickets. And they automatically register you. But for what?
  10. American Soul or The Blackout as openers?

    Maybe the uppers are so expensive because they're going to FLY in this time. Like Lady Gaga. LOL!
  11. New Presales: Resetup?

    That's what I thought, but it says a bit differently on the link you posted (see attached). So, I'm guessing they'll send you new codes for additional dates at the same venue for which you were previously registered...if you didn't buy any tickets? This is so confusing. What if you bought less than the limit? Guess we'll find out. (This is not fan presale. This is general.)
  12. New Presales: Resetup?

    I started a thread about this here somewhere - when I called the help line for clarification on this I was told that the codes we received for the Experience presale and the Innocence presale would not be good for future presales. We would have to re-register for each presale that happens. They do, however, hold over your ticket limit, so if you didn't buy any yet, you can still buy 2. Maybe they'll change it before more American dates do onsale, but I'm thinking it has to do with the way TM is set up.
  13. I just got an email saying that my code from today is now good for any shows where seats are still available. The list is attached. You're not tied to the city you registered for anymore. If that helps anyone! There were a lot of inexpensive seats still available for Newark last time I checked.
  14. Codes

    Even if it were allowed I don’t think the code would work because it’s tied to your personal TM account.
  15. I just heard on the radio that this year Santa Claus at Macy’s NYC is by appointment only. You have to be Verified Nice! What’s going on in this world?
