  1. U2 songs of experience your possible setlist

    I could see "Summer of Love," taking that spot. Just Bono with Edge on acoustic guitar. A full band "Every Breaking Wave," would be a treat though if they could find room for it.
  2. u2 song of the day

  3. I jumped on two $47 tickets for MSG2 which turned into $65 tickets when fees were added. Looked at the seat map and they are dead centre behind the stage, top level. Still though I'll be in the room.
  4. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    Maybe the album pre-order is a lottery just like the tickets. "Pre-ordering an album does not guarantee that you will receive an album." They learned NOTHING from the JT pre-order disaster earlier this year. NOTHING!

  6. U2 songs of experience your possible setlist

    I wouldn't go so far as to predict a set list but I do hope that certain songs are given a rest this tour (I'm looking at you Pride, Vertigo, Elevation & Beautiful Day). It would be great to hear lesser played hits like Who's Going To Ride Your Wild Horses, Stuck In A Moment, Staring At The Sun & 40.
  7. When will the Experience CD arrive ?

    I got an e-mail saying that my copies have been dispatched. When I checked the FedEx tracking it tells me that they will arrive on Tuesday.

  9. Bought The Blackout on vinyl...had to go online.

    Just picked up two copies, one is a gift. $12 US each.
  10. So Mr. Oseary if I sell my ticket at an inflated price on Stubhub or eBay I'm a scalper but if I sell it for the same inflated price through the TM verified resale I'm a solid citizen. Basically TM have no problem in fans being ripped off once they get a piece of the action. Nice.
  11. Typical management speak... a great deal of talk about what should have happened but no effort to address what did happen. To sum up his response, "Sorry to hear that you didn't get tickets. We just announced new dates so you can try again." This wouldn't have happened when Paul McGuinness was steering the ship.
  12. I didn't think that I got one, took a look and there it was in the spam folder.
  13. I don't think that the band are to blame. They create a "product," and then the business people go about selling it. The problem is that the business people got greedy. They misread the compliance of the fan base. The tickets were way, way overpriced and the people voted with their wallets. U2 aren't out to rob you but the contract with Live Nation has been revealed to be a deal with the devil. ^ I can't add anything to this. You've said it perfectly. ✌
  14. What's the word on a DVD for JT17?

    I would guess one of the South America concerts will be released. If you look at the setlists for that final leg you will see that they are the same night after night. To me this means that the band were doing live rehearsals and getting the set right for DVD.

    I think that the band have been hobbled by self doubt and second guessing ever since POP was released before they felt it was finished. Now albums have approximately four different producers and are worked on, polished and repolished, then scrapped and redone all over again. The SOE songs will sound excellent live because the band will have to strip away all the layers of Taylor Swift production to play them. There is solid U2 drum, bass and guitar under all that studio sparkle and shine.
