There was not really any details of U2 concerts in the early 90's because there was no internet. I doubt anyone here would have reeled off setlists back then without contact of someone being there.

 

 

That's not accurate. There were plenty of people with relatively accurate lists of tour dates & setlists from the mid-80s on, email was around then, and by the early 90s U2 fandom online was booming (and cha-ing).

 

Ooh I think that May be inaccurate I think you'll find the t'internet did not boom until mid to late 90's and as for the 80's......erm no

I think most people found set lists from bootlegs. Not internet, because it was not available to the general public.

Again, for those who got to the internet late and don't know the timing, or are ignorant of pre-internet U2 fandom: online boom was early 90s. Never said boomed in the 80s (though it wasn't absent), in the 80s though lists were compiled and distributed by snail mail. Setlists typically didn't come from anything other than bootlegs or live reviews (which were often from bootlegs), pretty much until cell phones came into the picture for as-it-happens reporting of the songs.

Good Night, Alma, get into Achtung Baby, listen to it..you won't regret it !!!

 

Anyone who has not listened to AB can't call themselves a fan.

 

But no one said anyone hadn't heard AB. There's just this whole 'new appreciation' thing going on of some of us re-listening to certain past albums or past songs. (Started in a different thread.) Nothing wrong w/that. Some people can't understand why their friends don't like certain songs or albums as much as they do, so they'd just like their friends to have another listen, that's all.

 

But you don't know the album. Says to me you hardly listen to it. Which could mean you have not listened to it. You did not even know the song Love is Blindness?

 

No biggie, but they did play this song every night on Zoo TV. Surely fans would know this song and know it is the closing album track.

 

Look at those Zoo TV set lists.......but be sure to have a box of Kleenex handy.
