  1. Oh my gosh, some of these clips! I love these guys even more now!
  2. Oops - yeah, I didn't get it! In my defense, it was rather early for me when I read that! ?
  3. Ah, I did GA in Tulsa. This time I have seats because I want to get the full view of the screen. Hope you have a great time!
  4. Thanks, but really I don't want my status or ranking (whatever that is) to change to something other than "Ultraviolet." ? Edit: Okay, it's "rank," - but Ultraviolet is such a good song - I'm going to have to stop posting before I hit the next rank.
  5. Wow, thank you for putting this together! Some of those sound recordings of the live shows are truly amazing! I'm listening to 2018 04 20 Laval, Quebec, Canada IEM MATRIX on YouTube right now... my mind is blown. To hear them live, so clearly like this - the things we miss because of people cheering at shows - I am speechless! ?
  6. If I could, you know I would... Give you all tickets to the Apollo show! Really, I would. But in the meantime, I sure am enjoying the U2 station on SiriusXM. I thought I knew everything - every song by U2 anyway - but apparently not.
  7. Any fan gatherings happening before or after the show on Friday?
  8. There's also a song they play where they show images on the big screen that look like they could be MRI images. I noticed when watching one of the Periscope feeds. Now I can't figure out which song it was. Has anyone else noticed this?
  9. I was REALLY hoping to hear that this tour, too. The BBC performance got my hopes up. Drop All Because of You, and then add All I Want is You.
  10. I LOVE Book of Your Heart! One of my favorites!
  11. I read the article about the MRI - but it also sounds really similar to the Popmart show. Honestly, when I was in Tulsa, I thought it sounded like it was supposed to be a spaceship - and now I feel really dumb because I've had an MRI myself and didn't recognize those sounds. However, when I had my own MRI, they didn't tell me to "inhale, exhale," because they were just looking at my neck.
  12. At the risk of sounding like a fool, I'm going to go ahead and post this here. I was at the opening night in Tulsa and had no one else's explanations to go by at that point... but the "sounds" at the start of the Experience show reminded me of similar sounds I heard when I was at the Popmart show and the band exited from the "lemon disco ball" right before they played Discotheque. I thought those sounds were some kind of tie-in to the Popmart tour. Others have now pointed out what the Experience opening sounds actually are - but I'm curious; did anyone else think of the Popmart tour when they heard the sounds at the opening of Experience?
  13. Wild honey! Oh, I couldn't resist.
  14. Beautiful Day Elevation Vertigo Sweetest Thing One is a great song, but I wouldn't miss hearing it live at this point.
  15. Another fan of Little Things here! Bummed that I didn't get to hear it again in Tulsa. It seemed like when they played it during JT tour, people just weren't "into" it. Personally, I felt like it wasn't a great song to end a show with, but I absolutely love the song. Another thing... even for me, once I read the lyrics, the song took on even greater meaning for me. Hearing it live, I just couldn't catch all of the lyrics because of all the crowd noise.
  16. Each U2 show is such a sensory overload to me! I know it sounds greedy, but I feel like I have to see each tour at least twice just to take it all in. We went to the Tulsa show, and it was amazing! Now that I've watched other people's videos of the show, I realize how much I missed - either because I was looking at one part of the arena while the action was going on in a different part - or because GA is way too close to big screen to take in the full experience (no pun intended ). I'm begging my husband to find a way to go to a second show and he just laughs at me and says "they'll be back after they finish the European dates." What do you all think? Will they be coming back? Personally, I think not.
  17. ...and it was delivered in such a VERY satisfying way! When they first started playing it, I thought, "Oooh, at least we're going to get a 'snippet,'" and then they KEPT GOING! At that point, I looked at my husband, who isn't really a U2 fan, and I said "This is IT! This is ACROBAT!" and he saw the tears in my eyes and put his arm around me. ?
  18. Absolutely! I wish I knew the right words to explain how it feels to to be a part of what I experienced last night!
  19. Some notes & thoughts about last night in Tulsa: We were in GA. Arrived around 5 PM and the line moved VERY slowly after they opened the doors to the arena. I'd say we got inside around 7ish. We bought some tour merchandise, drinks, etc. and we got down to the floor around 7:30. We were about 4 people away from the rail but moved back in an attempt to have a better view of the big screen. Don't worry if you get a wristband that's a different "side" from the other members of your group (North vs. South side). They don't split you up like 2015. The AR app didn't work for me -- and yes, I had the latest update installed on my phone. I think the GA area is just too close to the screen. Periscope was working great until they put the AR image up on the big screen, and then I couldn't broadcast anything after that. I closed all apps, rebooted my phone -- but no Periscope. Sorry! Overall, the show was amazing! Acrobat, Wild Horses, Love is Bigger... WOW! There are several points during the show when Bono walks around and is separated from the rest of the band. At one point, they all split up and each stood on his own side of the arena. Personally, I didn't care for that -- I like to look at them all together! The guys all seemed to be in really good spirits. I think I saw LM Jr smile a REAL smile for the first time. The "Macphisto effect" was pretty cool in a super creepy way -- they had some glitches with it, but I'm sure they'll work that out. HMTMKMKM was really cool (even though Bono wasn't singing and it wasn't live), but it's so hard to see the screen from the floor. My neck still hurts today! I really enjoyed the acoustic version of You're the Best Thing... Pages fall from the ceiling again. The two that I caught were from The Message. I wish I could go to another show and get the full screen effect from the seats -- but... that probably isn't likely this tour.
  20. I vote for your setlist. All I Want Is You, Moment of Surrender, The Fly. YESSS!!!
  21. You might find this article interesting... http://www.u2songs.com/news/the_history_mix_hidden_messages
  22. This has always been one of my favorite songs. It has a very personal connection for me. If we could get a digital download of the audio from this version, I would be so happy. I'll even pay for it!
