  1. So, the JT tour is over! Let's see if I can find tickets for the Songs of Ascent tour
  2. Yes I think so. Strange end of this beautiful tour. Really enjoyed listening several concerts by Mixlr.
  3. Well then they are good in guessing, because they tweeted Desire with Noel!!!
  4. I see that https://twitter.com/atu2 are counting the songs, so possibly they are there.
  5. This Twitter feed from U2start says it nicely. Very very strange U2! From U2START: The last show of #TheJoshuaTree2019 has started in #U2Mumbai. Reception and coverage inside the stadium are really BAD (no pun intended) so we have virtually zero information on how the show is going. What a bizarre way to end a world tour 😅
  6. Yes, I had the same experience with my eyes. Until the band hopefully make the notes available online, I will do the same like you
  7. Thanks for your post, Laura. A part of the digital booklet are the notes that Bono wrote, so called the liner notes. Thanks for trying.
  8. Wow, completely overwhelmed by SOE!!! Great album! Does anyone see or have the liner notes of the album online? Thanks. John
  9. I also received it. It is from LiveNation, but I think it was a test and by accident they clicked on Send.
  10. Amazing show! This album is the best one for me. It travelled 30 years with me and yesterday we saw each other live! Great to see Dutch women during Ultraviolet, like Mabel, widow of prince Friso and major Bosshard from the Salvation army.
  11. Wow, I'm so excited by this news!!! And great that they also play in Amsterdam. Hopefully more concerts will come in our country, just like I & E in 2015!!
  12. For me the Joshua Tree was a special moment in my life. I was thrilled to listen to these completely new songs for me. I didn't understand not completely the meaning of the lyrics, but was deeply touched by the music. It helped me crying, mourning and to celebrate. After that album my journey with U2 started and I'm still learning about this album. For example: when I heard 'Bullet the Blue Sky' during the I & E tour in Amsterdam, I really was touched much deeper then before when I heard it. That album is a part of my life and from time to time a song pops up in my memory (or on my Phone:-)). It's like a dream comes through that U2 will perform the whole album this year! Special moment for a special band in my heart.
  13. No problem. I just send you a personal message.
  14. Indeed, I hope the same: Mercy on SOE!!
  15. For me today Mercy and then especially the live version played in Brussels in 2010. Great lyrics and song! https://www.youtube.com/embed/XQC37h7yJDM
  16. Thanks Evan for being so proud and the message you give us. Also blessing to you! Jan
  17. I just saw the short film and I liked it. Eugene Peterson has so much life expierince and Bono's words are like U2's music: honest, realistic, powerfull and with passion. I really like Bono's saying of Psalm 23 between Raised by Wolves and Untill the end of the world during the I&E Tour. Powerfull of using these words between the conflict, bombings in Ireland, the violence and the ultimate conflict between Jesus and Judas. To shout so loudly 'comfort me, comfort me' keeps echoing in my mind. So, I will certainly use this film when I'm organising a U2 retreat again next year.
