  1. 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/

  13. Carla Morrison mentioned in an interview about the way she belongs to many minorities in Mexico, and how she tries to show it on her songs... I would think that's something huge, at this time and with everything it's happening in this country.. it should continue and expand... and we should listen, I think...

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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

  26. Thanks to a conversation with another subscriber yesterday, I was doing some internet digging and found Willie's Popmart diaries. You can read all of them here: http://u2forums.com/topic/1114-willie-williams-diary-part-1-popmart/ But here are the entries from Mexico City for some preshow reading: 29.11.1997 Mexico City pre-show – Meetings, meetings. Mexico City pre-show – Meetings, meetings. Preparations followed by a David Lynch style karaoke. Mexico City. Slept late, then got up and headed in to see the venue.

  27. I had my first Covid vaccination this morning. It looks like the health service in my town may well have already got round to doing my whole age group - and there was a good, steady stream of people coming in to get theirs, so hopefully that means most people in the area are accepting the vaccine when they're called for it. It was very quick and I barely even felt the needle. Nothing to worry about at all I have the appointment sorted for the second dose - and it's just after my birthday. My present for this year is being protected from Covid.

  28. Seriously, I also love the PoP album and the tour. At this point in time I am amazed by the bands ability to reinvent themselves. From the Joshua Tree to Achtung Baby to Pop, what a transformation for one band to go through. Also like dmway this was the first time I saw the band more than once on the same tour. Two nights at Wembley Stadium - wow party time.

  29. I actually heard “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” in the supermarket! 😊 I certainly didn’t expect to hear it there, but it really was on the PA there. Maybe it will happen again someday; in any case, it was nice that it happened once.

  30. I had a phone-call from the local GP surgery about half an hour ago to offer me an appointment for my first Covid vaccination. Surprised me as I had no idea I was eligible. I thought they were still doing the 50-60 age group - but then I realise it may be because I'm registered with the local autism centre. Some of my friends are autistic and had recently had their first doses. I don't have a formal diagnosis, but I am in the middle of the assessment process (still - I was supposed to have the second part of my assessment some time last year, but the centre had to shut for most of the yea

  31. Well it was too late for me to tune in to the live thread, so have just watched Red Rocks tonight. I was interested to read the comments at the start of this thread about low volume, I had headphones on with the volume right up and it sounded incredible and visually great as well, surprising how well they cleaned it up. I would really like to thank the technicians for remastering these concerts and for U2.com to put them out, I am getting a whole new appreciation for these concerts. Looking forwards to PopMart.

Next stop: everybody is talking about... *[MEXICO CITY]* POPMart from Mexico City awaits. see you soon!!!

  35. I was in Florida and heard a panther cry/roar/whatever one does. It was at night. Very cool until I realized it was midnight, I was two miles from where I was staying and I was the only thing walking on that long dark road. Great pics but now I'm worried about Bambi. My good thing is I talked to my Godmother, who has Alzheimer's and was able to get her to remember a lot of things. I'm really good at it. We also talked about corona, Trump, Biden and some quite deep Catholic theology. She was instrumental in my becoming Catholic when I was 25 years of age. (Yes, I willingly chose it.)

  39. 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

  41. I've always loved WOWY but for some reason since the whole pandemic started, it hits me harder than ever before. Can't listen to it without crying my eyes out. Not very convenient considering it's in pretty much all U2 playlists !!!
