Welcome guys to this new thread that will hopefully be filled with laughter and conversations and will turn into a nice chapter of the zootopians resilience. ✌️   Ghost towns are emerging al

Long post...but as many know, Rattle and Hum means the world to me, and I’m sharing this for probably the 269th time.  Gloria drew me in in 1983 and I was a fairly casual fan until 1988. But I wo

It is this Saturday (June 13) if enough people agree that it is this Saturday. I thought we had that agreement last Saturday, but that changed. So, yes, it will be at the usual viewing time, since that is what we are all used to. So, that's:

10pm Paris

9pm London

4pm NYC

1pm LA

With equivalent times worldwide. 🌎

 

Dear fellow thread-readers, if you would let us know here that you are at least interested in being here at the aforementioned time, please let us all know - thank you!

 

A reminder of showtime...

(First, a P.S. to my post above - I wish they would put the old tour shirts in the shop. I'd replace my JT tour shirt and my original POPMart shirt (the other one I once had that has gone to meet its maker) in a heartbeat. They do do that on rare occasions (e.g., my POPMart shirt I have now was from the U2.com shop - I was very happy to have the opportunity to replace it.) Please make it so, U2.com shop! Thank you.)

I've been in the habit of posting thoughts about particular tours before our communal DVD viewings (mostly because I wasn't able to make the viewing itself); however, I will be here today and I hope as many as possible join us!

The Joshua Tree tour...well, our band finally made the big time. We U2 converts knew they someday would, and this tour was the proof. The crest of the wave that began with the release of "War", continuing through the "War" tour (with important dates at the US Festival and Red Rocks within a week of one another), then the release and tour for "The Unforgettable Fire", leading to their appearance at Live Aid, then co-headliners on the following year's "A Conspiracy Of Hope" Amnesty International stadium tour, the stage was set for them to break through in a big way. All they needed was an album that was so good that it would win over even people who weren't riding on the wave with them: "The Joshua Tree", of course, fit that bill. They became so big that they even made the cover of "Time" magazine ("Rock's Hottest Ticket" was the legend emblazoned upon them). So, the tour was a big deal to current fans and fans that were about to be initiated.

So, enjoy the 4th of July of 1987 in Paris! The show has a couple memorable things: it was one of a handful of shows on the JT tour where "Streets" wasn't played (yes, the e&i tour wasn't the only tour not to have "Streets"; they didn't play it for a few dates even on the original JT tour too - strange to think now, but true), and the band are joined on-stage by a big person - not "big" in the sense of "famous"; "big" in its literal sense - if you haven't seen the show before, you'll see what is being described here. I'll say no more to keep the element of surprise - if you know what I am describing, please refrain from describing it further so that others can enjoy the surprise too. Thank you in advance.

So, let's enjoy Paris again in a little under an hour...
