  4. R.I.P. to my mom - 4 years ago she went to join all of her friends and relatives who went to heaven first. I know she is helping us from beyond to make sure we have a new president in January 2021. Thank you, mom, for everything you did for me and all of our family while you were here. R.I.P.

  5. OK, technically this is yesterday's good thing. I got to go to what seems to be my only live show of 2020. Mythology, featuring my buddy Jordan on drums, played an outdoor set at a private residence in upstate rural New Jersey. It was beautiful and sunny, the leaves were just the right Autumn colouring. We sat under a pine tree and were able to relax because everyone was respecting the mask and distancing rules. The band describe themselves as prog rock but they incorporate elements of blues and jam band influences. It was great to be out and about catching up with friends.

  7. That’s a good question. And the time doesn’t change here in the States until next weekend. Check back. And as always, we will have a timetable chart closer to the show.

  9. R.I.P, atu2.com This was one of the best (and, in many U2 fans’ opinions, the best) fan-run U2 site. Back in the early days of the Internet, this was one of a handful of “go-to” sites for band info. A sad day... https://www.atu2.com/news/goodbye.html

  12. @illumination70 *hugs* Condolences on your loss. 18 is a very good age for a cat. Clearly you gave her a lovely happy life. I've just had an email from a presenter on my local BBC radio station - he's organising a radio programme dedicated to the issue of fake news/debunking virus conspiracy theories, educating people on the dangers of them etc - and has asked me to take part. Hopefully, this will help stop people falling down the same rabbit-hole that my sister's got herself into. It also shows why I really appreciate the local BBC stations. I can't imagine the commercial st

  13. I think it still holds up as well as ever. I can honestly say that if I heard it on the radio today, I'd be trying to figure out who it is so I could hear more of whomever it was. I'm always happy to hear Out Of Control. It's even better live. I remember when I first heard I Will Follow; I was in the student union of my college. It came on MTV. I heard the guitar and was hooked. It's 40 years later and I still cannot get enough of U2.

  23. Yes, I have to agree with what everyone has said so far. It’s still one of my very favorite albums of theirs; in fact, I think it’s among the very best debut albums ever in the genre of rock music in general. I remember hearing “I Will Follow” for the first time back in 1980, and (like with all of their songs, really) I thought that it sounded amazing and completely unlike anything else out on the radio then. They were of their time and beyond their time at the same time. They really won me over as a fanatic two albums later, but this is where it all began. Happy 40th anniversary, “B

  24. @CorkVegan That is a brilliant thing, to get to see a live band in the current climate. I also like their sign. "Turn off your phones and dance". More people should follow that advice

  27. It started off as a bad thing, but I'm turning it into a good thing and doing my bit to fight fake news My sister (who is admittedly annoyingly gullible about these things) posted some nonsense on FB overnight, a copied and pasted rant about Covid rules and how it's all nonsense (to put it politely - the actual post used a ruder word). It has several false claims in it, dressed up as "YOLO good vibes" fluffiness and written by people who do not understand the fact that stopping transmission of the virus is the best way to get back to the normal life they're on about. So I've repor

  29. 6pm is British Time, so same or +1, depending on where you are. Keep checking back, as with previous events, we should have a time table for the different time zones once we get closer.

  31. I was able to go to my favourite coffee shop for the first time since lockdown started. They take safety measures as much as possible with the food, wrapping up the giant cookies to minimise the amount of people who have to handle them directly between baking and being eaten by the customer. The staff are always really nice in there and they do gluten-free muffins that my Dad can eat too Then I bought 5 packs of F1 trading cards and pulled the gold Limited Edition card of my favourite driver

  33. Ah, I agree! This is good news. I was going to write a grand review of all the DVDs they have ever released (since we have watched them all together in somewhat close proximity time-wise) and, as an extension, say which ones would benefit from an HD upgrade the most. Since I never got around to it, I’ll give you the briefest of summaries: the Boston Elevation show is the one that would benefit from an HD upgrade the most. (If this surprises you, it shouldn’t - Boston was the first live DVD they ever released and it hasn’t been revisited ever since (until 2020, that is, hopefully). Every o

  35. Who is making these bad decisions??? They don't exactly know what fans want. Money is the problem. U2 is a multinational moneygrabbing organisation instead of a creative, social band. They better invest in a happy fanbase. I don't blame the band, but I blame their 'bosses'/Live Nation. I'd wish they had signed to a smaller label. Depeche Mode, Marillion are bands that release the right things in the right way to their fans. Metallica is doing great things for their fans too: https://www.nme.com/news/music/metallica-vinyl-club-subscription-launch-2620511
