  1.  

    how can we post videos?  

    the same way as jpeg photos?  

    Just "choose file" and "attach this file"?

     

    I am at work and cannot experiment now.  Sorry.

     

    Thank you!!

    Just copy the youtube link here.

     

    COMFORT ME..COMFORT MEEEEEE......COMFORT MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE..!

     

    thanks but I mean a video of my own that is saved to my laptop directly from my camera.  I don't even know how to post my own stuff to youtube

    I didn't say I dislike all the snippets but they are becoming more and more and it just takes up time when they could be playing something else you paid to see.

     

    Or, if they removed the snippets, they would just play the same songs and wrap things up sooner for the night?

     

     

    What I can't get is that it wouldn't be U2 without the snippets. Are they snippets or are they segues? I thought the latter. 

     

    Right from UABRS on the band have segued other songs into their own - whether it be during 11 o'clock or more overtly in The Electric Co - and it's something I loved then and still do now. It's part of what makes them who they are - the confidence to share other influences within their own music.  

     

    U2 puts their own twist on snippets (cover tunes), right?  It's not like they're copying the song exactly. It shows creativity and that U2 is NOT boring. 


  3. Personally, I love it when they add the "snippets" of other songs (but that's just me). Also, love it when Bono talks about... well, pretty much anything!  ;)  Whenever I watch U2 videos on Youtube, and someone has cut out the part where Bono is talking between the songs, it makes me sad.

    I agree with you.  I like when the singer mentions the city where the show is in the song - like I was just watching 360 last night and Bono said something.  I'll watch it again now because I need to know. Ha ha. One time I saw Bon Jovi at a small club as part of a radio show contest (I lost, but snuck in anyway at the back door around the corner).  So inbetween songs Jon mentioned the name of the club and the contest, so when that song was included in a special live album, I knew I was tehre!!!


  4. Probably not them personally but I imagine someone in their circle will to gauge reaction. Although for a band like U2 its a very small pool of people to look at.

     

    The thing with setlists is, as someone said before their tied to the production so it allows for less changes. For exmaple a lot of time and effort when in to all the vide effects etc. of Cedarwood Road so its highly unlikely it will change. These kind of productions are great and the idea is quite cool but it does cause some restrictions.

     

    I would have preferred to have a set up similar to Elevation, in fact given how much they've said how they want to be indoors and the whole Innocence thing, I was surpised to see they had such a huge production. Sometimes it feels the show revolves around the screen and not the songs.

    thanks. I like this: Sometimes it feels the show revolves around the screen and not the songs.

    If they stopped extending songs by putting so many snippets in them etc. they could probably play a few extra songs...

     

    I don't mind the odd one but the Paul Simon cover? Honestly it's not neccessary.

     

    I haven't been to a show yet, hoping I will get to next year.

     

    these snippets are getting out of hand, how many doe's the Bman sing now 2 or 3 between songs?

    ditch the snippets!  :wacko:

     

    most bands do snippets.  I have a lot of bootlegs.  Believe me.

    This I agree with. I thought the 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' snippet during Where the Streets Have No Name at Glastonbury was a bit cringey. Plus they have enough of their own material for it to be able to stand on its own two feet, without needing to throw in bits of other people's work.

     

     

    so hearing Van Morrison's Gloria, or Bob Marley snippets, God Part II opened me more to Lennon, the Dylan influences and many, many more i got from U2.

     

    Back, waaaaaayyy back when I was a Richie Sambora solo fan, (he's the ex guitarist for Bon Jovi), Richie covered a lot of Beatles on his solo tour so he is the reason I like the Beatles today.
