PLEASE...play these songs in Sydney!

Recommended Posts

Hey U2, when you come to Sydney...please, please, please include in your set 'The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)' AND 'Raised by Wolves'...please! I am bringing my 5 year old son with me and he LOVES these songs.

We may get something a bit different to the other shows. As it will be the 22nd anniversary of Michael Hutchence's death. Maybe Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of.  I'd be ecstatic with Gone.

Really hope they kick it all off with the ‘thumping’ tempo of Blackout......this was brilliant inside the arena setting, it will be so good to hear it played out to a stadium.........

Think it will be quite something - a JT based show, but surrounded by SOI / SOE and other other little surprises.......that’s the way I see it / hope it plays out.....

Travelling over from the UK for RZ at the SCG. Trip of a lifetime !!!!!! Roll on November !

I was at LA Rosebowl  both nights last JT Tour (as was worried they wouldn't come to NZ) - so I get a double whammy - was an AMAZING concert and set up! Well worth the $ and effort.

Yeah, I really enjoyed the Blackout in the arena shows too. Can't wait to see it on that giant screen! I'm hoping Blackout kicks off the second set (after a short break once JT has concluded, with the Love Is All We Have Left intro). It'll be such a different atmosphere to Mothers of the Disappeared. Totally changing the dynamics of the show.

I'm hoping the second set can be lengthened (by shortening, or even removing the old school opening). Leaving more room for their newer material, which this part of the world hasn't seen.

November should be great weather, &  a great time to visit Sydney for you. Spending time at the beach & on the harbour. I'd recommend you get the ferry over from Sydney Harbour (Circular Quay) to Manly on Sydney's northern beaches. A great ferry ride. Catch the older larger, (Freshwater class) ferries, not the smaller, more expensive fast ferries. It's cheaper, & a more leisurely pace. Oh, & sit outside, either up front, or down the back, upstairs is probably better.

At Manly you can walk around Cabbage Tree Bay, to Shelley Beach. A safe beach, where you'll see lots of fish when snorkelling. I even saw a few (small) dusky whalers sharks there last week!

Some people have complained about the choice of the SCG as a venue. As it's a large field, with quite low sloping tiers. So it won't be great from the seats. But will be great for us on the field!

But the SCG is a great choice for tourists, if you want to stay close by. Close to the city, the harbour, the city beaches. It does have poor public transport, the nearest train station being Central Station, quite a walk away. This will be alleviated by the new Metro line, from Moore Park (SCG), through the city, to Circular Quay. Unfortunately this Metro line isn't due to open until December 2019. I'm praying that it opens a few weeks earlier, before our show!

Hey Ddarroch,

Thanks for all of your information, I really appreciate it.......

I’ve been lucky enough to visit Australia a couple of times, although many years ago now.........Sydney is such an amazing place, and I cant wait to get back there........in fact list time I was there was for the Vertigo Tour at the Olympic Park.

Looking forward to making some more amazing life memories.
