  1. Erm...you've just hosted the WORLD CUP...and about to host the OLYMPICS? DEAR FECK! Lighten up. They haven't played in Belfast for 18 years - your country has enough to be getting on with. Dont you think? Some people need to wise up! But you can go to Dublin in a fast travel by train, right? Unfortunately, World Cup didn't bring much benefits. We only have more stadiums now but nothing's better in infrastructure. Besides I guess it made corruption bigger.
  2. Jaime, what’s your problem with me? We’re not friends but you always find a way to send me lots of messages in social media, even in my personal email. PLEASE, stop following me everywhere if you don’t share my point of view. I’m not asking everyone to think like me and I’m sick of this pursuit. I’m not really interested in your life, in what you do, but if you’re rich and live in USA good for you. Have a nice concert but I’m afraid you’re in the wrong thread. Sorry if I can’t afford to travel abroad, my country is in an economic crisis – recession - you should use your time to read about international news and don’t waste it with me, a poor Brazilian fan. You don’t know anything about me, my life and my country but you’re always bothering me with hard criticism. Once again, please stop! That’s the end of this conversation, if you continue I’ll block you (again) and make a report. Koke, let’s keep talking about the real subject by PM. Sorry for this, BigBunny and others.
  3. They didn't come to South America during Elevation because it was an arena tour, just like I&E now. Even in the 360, which was a stadium tour, it was a completely different show here. So, it's not the same. It never is because we're never in their first thoughts. We're the "rest of the world". If you're not rich, no matter how much fan you are... that's what makes me sad because I'm aware my dreams won't come true.
  4. The same thing here in Brazil - indeed all South America. It's really really bad to live in Southern hemisphere... we've been always excluded.
  5. @electricco: Thank you so much for the card!! I was not expecting it since I didn't join this year... it's been hard times for me. I'm very happy you included me in your list. Thank you for your consideration!!
  6. The thing is: I've never had the chance to choose. They've never played in arena in Brazil. I've been only in stadiums shows and I know how things are here, it's always a mess, it's not organized. Because they dont come here very often the shows are sold out in hours, it comes fans from all Latin America and if you want to be close to the band in GA, you have to camp outside the stadium about 10 days before the show or even more. It's insane! I said in 'My U2 Playlist' that was posted in U2.com that my dream was to go in an arena show, maybe in another country, to have this different experience and to be able to be close to the band at least once in my life. That's why I'm truly sad because I can't afford now with tickets/hotel/flight/renew my subscription... it's too much. I'm devastated because this is probably the last tour, so no more chances for me to make my dream come true.
  7. I know but it's not the same. It's always a mess, it's not organized... full of problems. And in a stadium it's completely different, it's another kind of show and just like I said, we don't have the opportunity to be close to the band. I'm truly sad. The "rest of the world" should deserve more respect. It's not easy to live here, everything is much more expensive for us... it's harder to be a fan here than anywhere else. I wish I could travel to U.S. or Europe but it's too expensive, specially the flight... U$1 = R$3 for me, sadly no way.
  8. Exactly! There aren't appropriate arenas in Latin America. So no chance to be close to the band in an intimate show. Only rich people can afford to travel to North America or Europe for a show... not my case.

Bono is the only artist from the original recording. The lyrics are a little bit different.

  13. Sadly I won't join you. My budget is short this year. I'll miss you but I wish you all the best!!

  16. When Larry said 'Song for Someone' to end the show, right away came to my mind 'Moment of Surrender'. Maybe that's the idea... because they're "similar" songs to me, I mean, very emotional. I love the Dutch interview. It was great. I guess it was the first time Larry explained about his tattoo... I didn't know all those details. Now it makes more sense to be in the cover of the album.
