  1. I was at the Brisbane Australia show and was located inside the ring right up at the back. Now, I'm 21, and that was LOUD. The Edge's guitar when he hit those higher notes got so high pitched it was as though somebody was screaming in your ear. I think that did some damage (though I wasn't paranoid about losing my hearing last year) Now I am and I recent other show has left my with some sort of ringing in my ears and my right ear not as good as my left for well over a week after the show. I've bought earplugs and I don't care what people say I'm wearing them. I really do think earplugs should be sold at the venues or given away free for people to use. There is no worse feeling than the concert starting and the noise being so loud you know it's going to ruin your ears and you can't do anything about it.
  2. The reason I like good bands is because they're not taking the easy way out of making music, and by 'the easy way out', I mean making mindless synth music for a mindless teenage generation. Why do U2 have to venture this way?
  3. Not long to go, Brisbane!! The Sydney shows would have been epic to go to with that size stadium. I haven't even booked my return ticket, only worried about GETTING there haha. I laughed when my cousin said he bought a ticket to see Usher for $450 and I told him not even U2 Red Zones are near that. To which he replied "But nobody like's U2" and I replied "Yeah, you're right, the biggest and best rock band in the world. Nobody likes them"
  4. Prefer the old version for sure, it's dark but the music is so hopeful and uplifting at the same time. I think the only thing that might work against it is its length. I love 6 minutes of Mercy, but perhaps a little more condensed could be better. The live version is too short though.
  5. The Australian tour will definitely rock, I reckon we'll see some new songs there, or at least the songs they've been revealing will be a little more complete.
  6. They should sort of...I don't know...print them before they plan on giving them out. I mean, I knew I'd be waiting about 3 - 4 weeks, but surely I should have to wait until next year some time should I?
  7. I prefer the older version. You can still get into the new song, and it's good, but I think they polished it too much. The lyrics were outstanding on the original version, and the length of the versus was good. The pre chorus was something I miss as well. I think they just need to shorten the old version by about 30 seconds or a minute.
  8. I think they've stripped it down too much. I know it's not complete still and they're still playing with it, but they need to revert more to the original and just give it a light trim around the edges.
  9. It's finally here. U2 have been rehersing Mercy in Istanbul. :D Oh my god I'm so excited, I can't wait to hear it!
  10. "FEZ - Being Born" (to open the show) "Exit" linked to "Heartland" by Adam's bass. "Disappearing Act" "Drowning Man" "Mercy" "Acrobat" Some of these are impossible, but one can only try.
  11. Judging by the size of the stadiums, Melbourne and Sydney would have been great. But I couldn't ask my friend to go see them somewhere else if they're gonna be playing 5 minutes away from where he lives. I'm not happy about the whole Jay Z thing. I know people from Adelaide who said U2 suck, but they're going to go just to see Jay Z. I couldn't believe it. I was hoping some good ausie talent would tour with them even. But oh well.
  12. I think the $35 tickets are the worst seats in the house, all the way up the back and behind the stage.
  13. I was lucky enough to be included in the Boots group and I subscribed 2 nights ago. Any presale access is a great advantage + you get a CD.
  14. If you paid $50 to be a subscriber you get presale codes that entitle you to presale access. They went on sale for subscribers today, and then open to the general public on the 3rd of Sep.
