  1. I got ALL of my university offers in yesterday! Now I have 2 months to make a decision!
  2. http://www.crawlsf.com/2013/05/08/the-real-story-behind-van-halens-infamous-no-brown-mms-rider/ Metallica: Metallica’s Rider states “BACON: VERY IMPORTANT THAT BACON BE AVAILABLE AT EVERY MEAL AND DURING DAY” Bacon bacon bacon..yum yum yummy!! Bacon? I thought it was Foo Fighters who requested that. Either way, bacon RULES. The strangest request I've heard is Axl Rose's request for a 'square melon'...
  3. I've heard of strange rider requests, but this...
  4. Bono said in his recent Radio 1 interview that they'd like to play the O2, so you might be right.
  5. Oooh, can't be too far away from an announcement!
  6. Well for starters I can see Invisible opening the show followed by City of Blinding Lights.
  7. here here I can't stand it when someone holds up an Iphone for 5mins or more in front of ya face I don't mind people taking a few photos but enjoy the concert, don't view it through a screen and block my view. I remember at the start of MetallicA's 'World Magnetic Tour', James Hetfield told the audience in London to put down their phones. then he said something about just making a sh*tty video for youtube he was so right on \m/^_^\m/ I remember that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs recently did a New York show where they banned the audience from taking videos with their cameras.
  8. Hmmm...so a release in June/July/August with a potential UK arena tour in autumn?
  9. *Brain implodes* *Calms down* Hmmm...this may influence my decision on where I end up going to university...I'll be starting in September!
  10. I've been there a few times - Doctor Who exhibition, Bloc Party and most recently Arctic Monkeys. It's a great venue. But The O2 would be much better for U2 because they could fit more people in. Edge said he'd be busy in summer and in the last part of the year. Maybe the album gets released between June and September and the tour starts in the UK/Europe in October/November? I'm also keen to redeem myself too Anjana, for missing out on the 360 tour!
  11. I still haven't got mine, but I did get an email five days ago saying it had been shipped.
  12. So apparently Bono has said they're going back indoors, places like The O2 in London etc., so when will this be? Given that the album's been pushed back to June I can see them heading for the UK in Autumn...which just happens to be the time at which I'll be heading off to university. This could be a tricky one.
  13. That's not fair. You can't judge people's level of sensibleness purely based on their opinions of a song.
  14. Having listened to the song some more, I can totally imagine it opening the show in a double whammy with City of Blinding Lights. The two songs are similar in some aspects.
  15. I was wondering that this morning. Good ploy to get the sales up and get into the charts doing it for free!, although its clearly for charity lol. Good work whoever thought of that idea! U2 + free...does not compute... I disagree. U2 need to do more free tracks, it was much better than having McGuinness swindling extra money out of the fans with massively expensive boxsets and stuff like that...hopefully those days are over.
  16. Not a bad cock-up though, the money starts coming into (RED) early now!
  17. Same here ! If the album will sound like this, U2 is over and done with !!! It's far fetched to say U2 are done just because you aren't happy with it. I and others appear to still like them a lot. From what comment's I've glanced over both here and on Facebook, the majority of people seem to like this song. You two are the first I've seen who don't like it. Given the odds, I'd say that this is a massively successful release for U2. If you don't like it, say you don't like it and move on. No need to drone on with your negativity about how you want the band to end.There are loads of other bands in this world who you have to listen to. As for the song, I love it. It's nice and catchy and I liked the intro and phase into the band playing. Although for the album itself having some songs with more guitar emphasis would be good. I thought this song worked well though. but I will agree we need a little more Edge... ;-) In the making of video, you can see a lot of what sounds like synths is in fact Edge playing with his effects.
  18. One thing I've noticed is that this is the second U2 freebie we've got in a row. Having not been a U2 fan for too long I have to ask - did we get many free tracks when McFatcat was manager?
  19. I wonder if the video footage is a sign of what the tour will be like? Cool visuals, but back to basics with the stage, with the usual gantry extending from it?
  20. Bono's using a different Gretsch to his usual Irish Falcon, Beautiful thing, too bad he can barely play it.
