  1. No wonder why Bono has eye issues - stop putting that lamp in your face!
  2. From the album: Bono @60

    Songs of Experience is an album that redefined my life. In 2018, I got to tell Bono that and how it helped me understand my near death experience in 2016. He hugged me and said "what's the alternative?" Indeed. Sage words of encouragement. I am forever grateful for all the ways Bono has inspired and comforted me. Hugs back to you on your 60th, Mr. B.
  3. Streets NEEEDED to come after that heart of darkness portion of the show for sure
  4. It's been 27 years since Zoomerang Sydney and Edge's beanie has not aged one single bit!

    Sorry - NOT Berlin, but Dublin night 3... Acrobat at its finest with everyone in the zone. Dublin 3 & 4 were rehearsals, as it were, for Berlin. The intensity and focus during Acrobat throughout the tour was a brilliant thing to watch. From Tulsa through Berlin, this one song WAS the Ei tour for so many fans, and it captured the zeitgeist of global sentiments at a time when we all needed a swift reminder of what could happen if we let things slip. MacPhisto's return in Ei was brilliantly utilized. Ei was my favorite tour for this and so many more reasons. So excited that it has been memorialized with the filming in Berlin.

  7. It's been fun - got to get kids up in an hour for school. Here's to more sleepless nights over the next few weeks.
  8. It was played on 360 Tour: https://www.atu2.com/tours/concert/mt-smart-stadium-auckland-nov-26-2010
  9. "Sometimes I wake at four in the morning - When all the darkness is swarming" - it's 3:50 a.m. where I'm at, and it's time for Shadowman. Coincidence?
  10. Did someone at Maverick clone Bono and cryogenically freeze him in 2017 and thaw him out for 2019? His shtick and banter has been almost spot on from 2017, in some cases almost word-for-word.
  11. someone call a cardiologist. It's 3 a.m. and my body's never had aerobics this early before. Gosh, STREETS WAS AMAZEBALLS
  12. Any idea if any of the tour merch will be available in the U2 Shop? Need some xmas gifts!
  13. It took forever for me to figure out in 1997 that the opening song (or 2nd to last opening song) was Verve's Bittersweet Symphony. In 2001, it used to be "Mama, just can't get enough" from New Radicals -- but that only lasted like two gigs in, then it changed. Now, all those opening songs come on the radio and it brings me back to that particular tour and the warm fuzzies about it all. I still pop on Seasons by Future Islands to bring me back to 2018 and the 1st leg of the tour. Good times!
  14. What was explained to Bigwave to share on the podcast was not the case, so he was given bad information, imho. Some legit fan club members were accused of being a scalper when they called Ticketmaster / Live Nation about the fan club code issue. The U2.com Verified Subscriber presale language did not include the Ticketmaster Verified presale language - thus the confusion regarding the "random selection." This signals to me that whoever with U2.com responsible for that text was not aware of what Verified Fan really meant, nor mirrored that text. Ultimately, the Verified Fan rules are Ticketmaster's, so just because U2.com didn't list the fine print, the sale is still subject to the fine print of the one doing the sale - which is Ticketmaster. This is where some of the confusion and, ultimately disappointment is based.
