    I find the band's silence on this issue quite disturbing.  Some kind of statement of clarification of their position from the band seems fitting, especially since they used the concert forum to ask fans to support this woman.  Although I can't imagine this is the case, their silence seems to indicate a continued support for her regime.  I am at such a loss wondering why U2 has chosen to remain silent.

    Fully agree. Given their support for Aung San Sue Kyi, you would think they would say something.


    They've also lauded Malala and Tutu, so you might expect them to voice support for their statements as well as for the refugees generally.

  2. Yeah, I like it and it grows on me. But it isn't blowing me away either. It sounds like a decent upbeat album track rather than a punchy lead single.

    However, it has more going on than in The Blackout. Better melody and chorus, more hooks, less one-dimensional and less...I don't know...clunky perhaps.

    For me, though, Little Things is the best of the three new tunes I've heard so far.

  3. I mailed support this afternoon to ask about this in the hypothetical case that extra shows are added. On 360 and I&E they went through the same pre-sale process, so you would think the same will apply this time. Trying to judge whether to hold something back for a probable 2nd night in Dublin.

    Yeah, pondering that one myself. Ideally, I'd try for two for Saturday in Dublin and hope for a further pre-sale for a second night.

  4. Was at the second night and enjoyed it as ever. Similar set list to Glasgow 2, which I was also at but good to get Out of Control. Delighted to get Bad/40 again too.


    Was glad to be able to take in more of the show this time, as I was a lot more sober than in Glasgow... :)


    Invisible is a real highlight. A grower of a song - one of their best for a while - but very well done live with the screen interaction. Plus I love Larry's little wave to the crowd behind him towards the end of the song.


    Good to notice things like these a second time around - Bono's little "there is not them...there's only us" dance moves as well.... :)


    Got good views of the guys at various times on the walkway and a real treat to be so up close to them.


    I just thought at times the crowd wasn't as into it as I would have thought. I think the high ticket prices maybe made for a more sedate crowd and they only came alive really for the "biggies" like Streets and Pride. Not many band t-shirts about, put it that way....


    A minor gripe, though. Great show and great to see the guys in a venue like that as opposed to the usual stadiums.

  5. Very fair point. I suppose being so close to Christmas doesn't help either.


    I wonder maybe also did people maybe just assume it would sell out and not even bother trying for tickets?


    But, yeah, prices are a bit high - especially for a small catchment area around Belfast. Putting on the same show in London or other big cites as they have isn't a problem because there's going to be a percentage of people who can afford to go and naturally that percentage translates into thousands in a major city but not so much in Belfast and the greater area.


  6. I don't really wish to be on the barrier would rather be free to roam about, will I be ok turning up at about 8pm ?

    I'd imagine so. We had enough space to sit on the floor for most of the lead-in to show time in Glasgow.

  7. Don't think you can go too far wrong no matter where you are. We stood at the E Stage end in Glasgow but at the very perimeter of the standing area and it was great. We got the kind of view you'd have to wait all day for at an outdoor gig and were able to comfortably have our drinks, jump around if we wanted and we didn't get squashed, separated or have any hassle.


    Well, until close to the end when the stewards decided to force everyone closer to the stage and leave room behind us. We only realised this was for Bono walking off behind us after he'd passed....! Darn....!

  8. Amazing show. No surprise to see so many people hail it as best of tour. Just a great vibe and great venue - everyone up for it and thoroughly enjoying a band in its prime. What a show!


    To get Gloria, October, Bad and 40 was incredible. "Shine like stars...." was the cherry on the cake. The party atmosphere just cranked up with Desire, Angel, MW and EBTTRR.


    Incredible. Can they top this in Belfast and Dublin? Gonna be fun seeing them try....!
