  2. Sorry...I know I'm going to get flamed for this... Bono can't sing anymore. His range is gone....especially his lower register. I'm not trying to be mean spirited but I can't fathom shelling out money to see the Joshua Tree Tour 2017 when I know I'd be getting Bono 2017 versus Bono 1987. I know, I know....people get old and their voice changes. However, I'm at the point where I find his voice annoying and I cringe when I hear him sing from their older catalog...i.e. Joshua Tree. And I'm not cringing because I don't like him...it's more of a feeling of pity. I know that many think his voice is great...so if you feel that way I hope you got tickets and enjoy the show. Me...I'm bowing out. I've seen them over a dozen times and it's time to call it quits. Anyone else feel the same way? Again, not trying to start a war...just my opinion.
  3. Exactly a week ago I was browsing YouTube and found this great TV-Documentary from 1987. It was filmed at and around the time U2 came back to Croke Park to play 2 nights during the Joshua Tree Tour. It's amazing stuff, as everything seems to be totally different now. Edge's ponytail, Bono's childish face, Croke Park was twice as small and looked hundred years older, the Troubles in Northern Ireland were still a big issue, Dublin looked like shit. U2 fans on the pitch were crushing each other, crowd control was invented years later, right after Hillsborough. The band played the songs with a lot more pace, the BPM was at least 20 higher, U2 played stadiums without the usage of videoscreens. It looks like the crowd was at least 20 years younger (and wilder) then. No single person had a camera, was hooked up to cyberspace or were talking to each other. They all went mad! It got me thinking what I did and where I was back then and I realized I am - and we are - getting old :-) Lots of things have changed, and now it's coming back. I'm really curious to see what tricks the band will have to make us relive that 1987 feeling. Will Edge and Bono have huge hair-implants? Will they play their songs in 1980's BPM? Will the Dalton Brothers come back? Will U2 have the guts to tell the audience that smartphones are strictly forbidden? Can they shut down the internet on show night? Are they going to refuse to use videoscreens? Or will they change the only thing that's still the same? Larry Mullen junior... Hope you guys were successful with the ticket quest, at least that was a lot easier this time. In case you're interested, take a break and watch U2 - World in Action 1987. You'll love it!
