    I don't want to be overly premature, however, there will come a time when we run through all of the live shows.


    It is important to remember that that time won't be the end of U2-related video to potentially watch together.


    I was thinking of other such things to watch. I think I can safely say that most/all U2 fans worthy of their title would also have at least "Rattle and Hum" as well. That could be watched after we watch all of the officially-released shows.


    There are also others that many (most?) may have:

    "From The Sky Down" (documentary on the making of "Achtung Baby")

    "It Might Get Loud" (documentary on three guitarists: Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White)


    Then there are some that fewer may have, but possibly enough will have them to make a collective viewing worth doing:

    The JT tour show from Paris included in the super-deluxe of the 20th Anniversary set of JT (also, the "Wide Awake In America" documentary on the same disc)

    The bonus DVD included in the equivalent set for "The Unforgettable Fire"

    The 3rd DVD of the AB super deluxe which has all of the ZooTV-related documentaries.

    "Linear" (the Anton Corbijn-made DVD version of NLOTH)


    After watching all of the shows listed in the poll, shall we watch any/all of these?


    (There are other movies that are more tangentially U2-related (e.g., "The Million Dollar Hotel", "Wings Of Desire, "Faraway, So Close", etc.) - however, these are harder to find and probably less-widely owned - and some are better than others. I'll mention them here for the sake of completeness; I'm not necessarily advocating watching these together because such an effort may not be practical logistically.)



    You forgot Man on the Train.

    I still get a bit misty eyed when I hear Space Oddity 

    That and RocketMan for me. The 360 tour was the best and worst of times for me. LOVED all my shows I made it to and all the Zootops I got to hang out with in person; but my dad was battling lung cancer at the time and unfortunately lost his fight about a month after the tour ended. So lots of emotions wrapped up in there.

    Since there was confusion last week, and since I hope to be helping to eliminate confusion with this post, let me run the risk of being a "smart ass" and make a couple of observations:


    GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) and London time are the same thing (Greenwich being a neighborhood of greater London).

    Also, as of the last weekend of March, both the UK and Europe (Eastern and Western) switched to their summer time schedules, did they not?


    If I am remembering the time change correctly, that means what we are trying to agree to synchronizing to is either:


    9 p.m. BST (British Summer Time - this is the same as 10 p.m. Western European Summer Time; 5 and 6 hours ahead of Eastern Daylight Time in the US, respectively - thus, 4 p.m. EDT)


    9 p.m. Western European Summer Time (the same as 8 p.m. BST; 3 p.m. EDT).


    This is the choice we are trying to decide on, right?


    There was a little confusion this past Saturday, which prompted her asking. I actually messaged @Madfl3a this afternoon and told her that this her thing and to do what was most workable for her.

    Rewatching this show reminds me how much I liked the illuminated strings of “light-balls” on this tour. Those really worked well.

    For anniversary shows, my first two choices would always be JT and AB; however, this tour would be next on the list. I really loved this tour.


    If they did an Achtung Baby anniversary tour, I don't know how I would control myself.
