  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/

  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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Thanks to everyone that has joined us on the Virtual Tour. It’s been a great few weeks. Can’t wait until we can meet again. Take care and stay safe.

  9. 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. 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 -

  15. 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...

  17. 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

  20. I just want to post another comment about the Apollo set. Really I think it’s excellent we’re getting the full show, I do hope we get the full show to download soon while we wait for the physical release but I also hope in future we’ll continue to get plenty of live stuff. I have to admit I’m not interested in books or photos but if that is a gift one year at least give us a full show to download alongside that. The fanclub is heading in the right direction, a full show 2 years in a row, one on cd, one on dvd and the year prior to that 2 cd’s worth of live material including some really rare l

  21. I am happy to report that I now have tickets to three Dawes shows. The first presale sold out yesterday (weird) before I could get tickets. I got in another and got tix for Chicago. I'm also thinking of going for broke and going to Nashville to see them at the Ryman Auditorium, which is the old Grand Ole Opry. Fellow fans are doing a VIP package where you get a pic and a private show during soundcheck, etc. I don't know. I feel weird meeting famous people as a fan. It's odd. I've known famous people but never like that so I'm very leery. Anyhow, three Dawes shows and counting. I am

  22. Good observations to note - my Dad gets his second dose of the Moderna vaccine this coming Sunday. He had no observable side effects after the first dose (however, knowing my Dad, he would have done his very best not to show it if he had felt anything wrong - oh, those Baby Boomers...); however, the public reporting has been saying consistently that the side effects after the second dose are much more numerous/potent. You seem to be feeling that. I'll be vigilant on Sunday. Feel better/less lethargic as soon as you can!

  23. 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...

  25. Paris was filmed with 4K cameras but released on Blu Ray/DVD. Berlin was filmed in 4K but released on DVD. At this rate Heartland will be released on VHS. 😀

  26. Someone told me about a great One of the first night in Turin during this tour. Unfortunately I missed it. I went the day after for the second night. Zucchero AKA Sugar Fornaciari was U2's guest that evening. A few months later Bono wrote a song for him, S.O.S., "Streets of Surrender," apparently inspired by Paris.

  27. What a great show! 😎 (..and with "40" during the credits 👍) As some of you may know already, for reasons I explained in an older post, I didn't see this tour. So, this Paris show was my i&e concert, as it were. It will always have special memories for me. I was living in the UK at the time, and the BBC got this show on air very shortly after the show actually occurred. So, I got my live U2 fix in short order. Thanks to the site for showing this - I could definitely hear an improvement in the audio. 👍

  28. Many mentioned it earlier, but it was so classy of U2 to hand over the stage at the end. Just a wonderful thing to do.

  30. I love that they did the video tribute for the victims in Paris in a similar way to how they honored the victims of 9/11 during the later "Elevation" tour shows. Quite apropos.

  33. Tonight was a full journey, like a long car ride. I'm glad it ended in a place of love & joy. Now more than ever, I want to be at a U2 show. The Virtual Road has been so much fun to be part of, and it's been great hanging with you all again!

  39. What a great, memorable show this is... Absolutely fabulous gig with Eagles Of Death Metal. U2 made history with this concert after the terroristic attacks in Paris, just as the New York concerts after 9-11 and the Sarajevo Concert... For me, this concert, as part of the Virtual road, is nothing special, because this concert in highest resolution was already released on blu ray, with the best picture and audio-quality. And again.... bring on a limited bluray- box of these concerts!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Edge's tweet (and Adam's the day before) are bringing me so much comfort. I always knew it must have been so hard for them too to come back, but to see it put into words... It really means a lot. They definitely gave us everything they had, and god knows how much we needed that. It makes me happy to know they felt how grateful we were to have them back. The show that never should have happened turned into a blessing after all... It's a gift that will never leave me ❤️
