  2. Some preshow reading. Not meant to be a downer, but a look at survivors just over 5 years out from the attacks. https://www.dw.com/en/bataclan-attack-how-survivors-cope-with-the-trauma-5-years-on/a-55543272 Most of us probably remember it as it was happening. We watched in shock. We worried about the band, the fans, our friends. Today, may be a healing day for some, or ripping off a bandaid for others, but either way, we will be here to carry each other. If you haven’t read @Madfl3a’s account of those days, I highly recommend it. https://www.u2andcoffee.com/2016/06/10/paris-mon-amour/

  4. So it's been about 15 years since U23D went around the world in IMAX 3D theatres... Now there's a whole new generation of U2 fans who NEED to see it.... I would have loved to do a poll, but it seems I am unable to do poll on this forum... Don't U2's new fans since 2005 deserve a chance to see this show in 3D, considering U2 won't release it for home media ...not to mention all of us who went around Europe seeing U2 on the Vertigo Tour ... What do you think?

  5. Very nice looking set. 👍 Just please release it all at once for download. The "two songs now, two songs later" routine is unnecessary BS.

  7. I got my second Moderna vaccination today. While I was getting it, I got a text saying one of my favorite bands, Dawes, just announced a tour. I'll be seeing at least three of those shows and they always announce more for Spring. They are even coming to a venue I can walk to, drink and safely walk home. Normally, I've got quite a drive and cannot drink. That's six concerts in my future, including these three Dawes shows.

  8. The Innocence Experience concert I went to at the O2 in London was the best U2 concert I have seen, simply because the sound quality was incredible.

  10. Thanks so much for this @mich40 🙏, we're up for a very special show tonight/today for sure. I don't think it's a downer, it's just reality. It was hard. it was traumatic. And i think it all touched us in different ways. It won't be easy, and it will most certainly bring a lot of emotions ... but as I remembered this morning after 3 days of freaking out about watching this show again, it also brought and will bring so much joy. I think, and as the tweets from the guys showed these past few days, it was meant to uplift our spirits, but it truly turn into a lot more than that. Ultimately th

  11. Check your e-mails, if you haven't done so recently - according to the e-mail about this set, apparently, in addition to the 2 CDs and nice packaging, we are getting...a facemask too! 😄 This added feature could be part of the delay, I suppose. Anyway, that's a cool extra! 👍

  15. It would be WONDERFUL to see it again! I saw it twice in Dublin and then twice in Brazil. When I saw it in Dublin, I remember going to HQ Studio a few days later hoping to meet any of the the fantastic four. Then Bono came out to talk to the fans.... We got into a conversation and he asked me "Have you seen the 3D?" And I said: "Yes... It was amazing and I cried the whole movie". Knowing I was from Brazil, he said something like "Very funny when I said Argentina and everybody uuuuhhhh"... Ps: the boo was because of rivalry on soccer If anybody would like to see the video, it's

  16. ...and continuing the good news today, I am getting my 1st dose of the Pfizer vaccine this coming Saturday! 😎 Thank you, Biden Administration, for making these vaccines more available more quickly! At first, I thought I would be lucky to get my 1st dose before the end of May; now, I will have both doses before Memorial Day! Thank goodness. Another of the baby steps back to semi-normality.

  21. Hallelujah! 🙏 Thank you very much for releasing the full show! Now let me expand on why I am so delighted that you have done it (and why I asked for exactly that all the way back on pg. 1 of this thread, along with many others subsequently). I was annoyed that certain...let’s call them “morally-flexible”...people were selling this show at places that one can obtain such recordings. All those people did was record the show off of the Sirius broadcast (thus, no “Red Flag Day”) and sell the show without having permission to do so. Of course, there are many ways to address such a situation -

  23. That's a whole other question. I'm not fanatical about the royals myself, and the idea of one family being put above the rest of us does look increasingly outdated - especially if you don't believe the religious aspect. Equally, I wouldn't like the idea of our politicians having any more power than they already do - especially some of the current lot. We've seen in America and Brazil how you can very easily end up with very unsuitable people being president. And a number of other European countries still have monarchies (Netherlands, Spain, Norway etc) and they seem to be happy wit

  27. Our time on this Virtual Road has come to an end. It was simply awesome to take the road with all and every one of you. Thanks. There will be, for sure, more things to come... some virtual, some in the real road. It will be great to meet you there and roam it by your side... Until then, take care and be good and let's carry each other, girls and boys...

  29. perhaps it's not a bad idea to revisit the added parts from Bono on BTBS... really important, I would believe... So this boy comes up to me His face red like a rose on a thorn bush Like all the colours of a royal flush A young man with a young man’s blush And this boy, well this boy He looked a whole lot like…me This boy looked just like me He stuck his face into my face And he asked me Have you forgotten who you are? Have you forgotten where you come from? You’re Irish But here you are, all smiling And making out with the powerful Like you’re really there f

  33. I'm the Pastor of a small church in St Albans Uk and I also manage a community Food Bank. The Food Bank is hosted by my church and since we began the x4 local churches have been the main suppliers for donations to the food bank. March 2020 and all churches stopped physical service, moved online but the repercussions were that the food bank donations had no obvious source. It was a real concern. Every week during this pandemic I have had at least 3-4 offers of donations to the food bank from people I do not know in the community. People have been donating bags of shoppi

  35. Absolutely- LIVE shows with the best possible audio is what the vast majority of fans want from these gifts. Imagine having the Sellafield ‘ 92 gig, for example .

  36. Johanna, There is no way to guarantee that the band will or can send any well-wishes, but be sure that all of us in the community are thinking about your father and you, and we are sending all of our best wishes for the best possible outcome...

  42. I've really enjoyed the live music releases - either on CD or the vinyl/mp3 combo. The idea of a live, complete '92 Zoo TV show for the 2022 subscriber's gift sounds awesome. Along those lines, I'd definitely like to see a Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary show released - it feels like we've been hearing about the movie for years now - if the video is held up for whatever reason, a complete show as an audio release would be great. I know Popmart can be divisive, but it made me a fan. I'd love to see a subscriber gift of a show from the 1st or 2nd leg of the tour. I have also contin
