  1. I just listened to it - that’s a snappy little tune! I could see that being quite popular (esp., in the UK, ROI, and The Netherlands). By the way, since this song is now a news story on the front of U2.com, this story could be moved away from the rumors area, couldn’t it?
  2. Well, it's a nice thing to hope for, but the reality unfortunately is the opposite: the tickets are selling like hotcakes. The Philadelphia date was completely sold out in one day (Genesis is absolutely huge here; 70s progressive rock in general is, but especially Yes and Genesis); NYC already has a 2nd show, but both shows are virtually sold out already too. I got tickets I wanted for The Stones and The Who in the past that way too (i.e., days before/day of the show) - however, I very much resent having to shop for tickets that way as some kind of "new normal". You can luck out, but you
  3. The Musical Box are great and are worth catching. You'll thank yourself for seeing them. 👍 Seconded on your assessment of TM - that is how they think now. It's atrocious supply-side economics on steroids...
  4. Happy Birthday, Bono! 😎 Two of the men I admire most in my life were born on May 10th: you and my Dad (my Dad had it first by 15 years, though). This is still the background of the screen on my phone; this picture also reminds me of one of the best U2 shows I have ever seen (July 1, 2018 - MSG #3, e&i tour) - have a great day!
  5. Yes, I am (unfortunately) well-aware of this upcoming tour. I did try to get tickets for Philadelphia and NYC; however, when I witnessed the wallet-crushing prices for the tickets, I intentionally didn’t buy any. I’m not paying $500 (or more) to be close to the stage; I’m also not paying $150-$250 (even before the ridiculous added Ticketmaster fees) to get a mediocre-to-bad seat. Thus, I gave the shows on sale so far a pass. I instead scratched my “Genesis-itch”, so to speak, with the two concerts I mentioned above. Steve Hackett only charged $85 for his ticket (and I’m in the 5th row of
  6. Hey! This topic may become more active again! 😎 I am seeing The Musical Box (a Peter Gabriel-era Genesis tribute band) on the Saturday after Thanksgiving this year (i.e., November 27th), and I’m seeing Steve Hackett again (the classic guitarist from that same era of Genesis) in April 2022! 😊 However, my first show will be Unforgettable Fire (an outstanding U2 tribute band) again in August - I just haven’t gotten around to buying the ticket yet. Concerts again! 😃
  7. 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! 👍
  8. This topic came up before in another thread, and I'll summarize what I said there here. IMHO, I'd be very surprised if they didn't release another set to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of AB. They double-dipped for JT (i.e., it got both 20th and 30th anniversary sets); thus, I expect the only other U2 album to sell more than 10 million copies worldwide to get the same treatment. There are other reasons to think this will happen too. The last two deluxe sets released (i.e., JT and ALYCLB) not only had CD versions, but vinyl versions as well (at absolutely eye-watering p
  9. Congratulations to Medina Spirit, the winner in this year’s Kentucky Derby! 🐎 

    I mention it here in appreciation of any and all of the baby steps back to semi-normality. The race was actually run on the first Saturday in May, as it was two years ago and when it normally is run (it was in September last year and was without fans).

    Also, this horse’s path to the Kentucky Derby couldn’t have been more unexpected. The horse was sold at auction originally in 2019 where it fetched the “princely sum” of $1,000. It was resold to the current owner at $35,000. (If you follow horse racing even casually, you will most probably know that both of these sums are laughably small - blue chip racehorses customarily go for several hundred thousand dollars each, with the very best going for over a million, sometimes well over.)

    However, if you give a horse like him to Bob Baffert for training, and then give him a jockey who has won the Derby several times before, you can turn the “little-horse-that-could” into the little horse who did! All in all, a very inspiring story. 👍 

     

  10. Extra blessings for his family and friends! 🙏🙏🙏 I’m glad you got to be introduced to his philosophy before he made his transition. His body may be gone, but the benefit he brought to you and many others in the world remains. Let that be some comfort for you. 🙏🙏🙏

    U23D souvenir

    I remember that promotional postcard (among the other items)! It was a lovely memento of a great film! 👍
  12. Ok, thank you for checking on that. However, what I wrote above is still true - here on this thread there are now 7 unique emojis in that post. When I posted it originally here, it was only 4. Somehow, it changed over time. On my profile, if you look at this now-infamous emoji post, it has the 4 I put originally only (again, looking at it on Apple products). I wonder why it would be different looking on-thread versus my profile. 🤔 I’ll check out both areas on a PC and see if there is a similar discrepancy. Based on what you have just pointed out, it should turn out to be 7 emojis in
  13. Right - the emojis are visible here on-thread, but they are not the correct ones. Look at the post I made above in my profile, and you’ll see the way they are supposed to look. The ones I posted were the ones just released today - only the syringe came through properly here. The site used two separate emojis here on-thread that are only supposed to be one emoji each.
  14. …and 14.5 was just released today! I’ll give it a “test drive”, so to speak, here later. While we’re waiting, here’s are some new emojis: 😵‍💫 😮‍💨 💉 ❤️‍🔥 Pretty cool! 😎 P.S. Only the syringe came through properly! 😄 I guess the site needs the emoji upgrade first before they show properly! P.P.S. Very strange…on my profile, this post has the correct emojis, but not here on-thread. Quite curious. I wonder why that is…
  15. 46, 657 Agreed on the Super League too. That was a bad idea. Having said that, let me add that I wouldn’t be too hasty blaming the Americans exclusively for this silly idea: the last teams who haven’t withdrawn from the league are from Spain and Italy, and none of those teams are owned by Americans. Enough said. Let’s keep things as they are; everything is working, and everyone is making (too much) money.
