  1. I didn't say there weren't and I'm not taking sides. Not the point I was making. Nothing to do with sides. I'm just surprised they have never made reference to the Croke Park Bloody Sunday while playing Sunday Bloody Sunday there. Even Queen Elizabeth could acknowledge it when she visited Croke Park.
  2. I know my history and they're both Bloody Sundays. Both involved the killing of innocent civilians by security forces representing the same country. I don't mean to sound bolshy but it's just a pity U2 wouldn't acknowledge that this was the site of a massacre of innocents. The original Bloody Sunday.
  3. I've seen U2 many times since 1985, never outside of Ireland. I've watched them play 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' in Croke Park numerous times now without a single reference to the fact that the original Bloody Sunday occurred right there in Croke Park. 16 innocent civilians shot dead in a football stadium! Do U2 fans even know that? U2 would make a big deal of that kind of thing if they were playing in a stadium in Soweto but not in their home country. I was encouraged by their 'justice for the forgotten' piece during Raised by Wolves on the i+e tour. I know there is little video support for the fi
  4. Hanover Quay recording studios. Right here https://goo.gl/maps/3EVJL6ucsaG2 . Northside Story map has it at no. 21. Surprisingly HQ isn't on the map but it should be a must-see for you. https://youtu.be/ZltxNmVDMpk
  5. Steeped you are! Grand Canal Dock is where HQ is. Also site of Gloria video.
  6. i+e won't fit in the Three. Not the way the stage area is orientated in the Point. The audience area is not deep enough to accommodate the screen, walkway and b-stage. No other suitable indoor venue. http://3arena.ie/3arena/new-page/seating-planI heard an interview with Edge saying the Dublin show might have to be acoustic.
  7. Hmmm. I really don't see this as a good thing. Obviously P McG can't keep going forever and is entitled to retire as much as anyone else. What I don't like is the buyout by Live Nation of their management. It' like Coca Cola buying a small nation's local and favourite brand of cola. Many years ago Paul McGuinness said he would never allow U2 to accept sponsorship and sell out on their artistic values. Well eventually he changed his mind. He sold his principles. When U2 first started working with Live Nation and their website started being run by them I noticed a slipping of standards and a sel
