Hello Hello!!


March 4th, 2002

ok, this goes out the diehard fans.... @ 03:16 am

echoboom:
now i think we all believe that the elevation tour was an incredible spectacle....

one thing we all argued about was, what are they going to play on this tour? how many new songs, how many classics and how many otherswill be included...

id say the tour was a major push for the best of , and ATYCLB.....so there werent that many suprises.....(how many POP/ZOOROPA songs were there.....?

so my question is: what songs do you think they need to retire? or what songs should they have ditched on this last tour
....for whatever reasons, whether you have personal reasons, or if your thinking about the 20, 000 other people in the arena.....

i know we have all kinds of ideas.....(you dont have to, but, try to talk about the 1st or 2nd leg of the tour..the 3rd leg, being post 9/11 led to some new emotions in songs that were different than before...)
.



bullet the blue sky--emotional and raw....way back in 87....now id say its lost some of its impact and energy.. would rather hear exit, when i look at the world., do u feel loved, zoo station..

with or without you--a song theyve played at every tour stop since the, but ive grown tired of it....bonos voice isnt as strong on this one anymore...

new york its an allright song off of ATYCLB, but no where near as good aswhen i look at worldor always...(or course on the 3rd leg, it was great..)

stuck in a moment yes a decent song, (it hadnt been a single yet) but its placement slowed down the show...wouldve rather heard stay(which they didnt play at any the shows i went to.....) or ultraviolet, running to stand still, slow dancing, two shots of happy, whos..wild horses...

sweetest thingcute, fun, cute......glad that they played a song i hadnt seen before...but once again Stay, babyface, please, lemon, even holy joe wouldve been cool

mysterious ways--when played on this tour, it seemed a little dull and not as uplifting , especially in comparison to the zootv/popmart era....it could have skipped this tour but been brought back for the next (much like the fly was an awesome inclusion on this tour, having been skipped duging popmart...)


but i think it was awesome that they played BAD, and GONE on this tour...especially gone, cause not many people even knew that song......and i think its awesome...and would BAD have been as great this time had they played it on Zootv & Popmart...maybe thats another question at another time..

There is NO WAY I could pick songs for them to drop off the set. Add songs yes, but to drop others NO.

My guess is the setlists will probably be similar to the ones on the last leg. I'm sure there will be some changes (songs switches, old/new songs here and there) but nothing that drastic.

I would NEVER take off 'bullet the blue sky', 'with or without you' or 'stuck in a moment...', they're three of my alltime favourite songs!
New York...yeah, they could do without that.

Stay

Bono and Edge went out to the end of the stage for a bit of solo work to play Stay for us on the first leg in DC.

It turned into an extremely intimate moment for the crowd, I think.

Ok, I'm sorry, but I feel dumb. When were these new tour dates announced? Are they coming back to the U.S.? I'm sorry, I'm just craving details:)

I LOVE "New York", my only complaint with it is that I prefer the CD version, where the guitar is not so prominent in the chorus. I agree with whoever it was that said they'd prefer adding songs, not taking them away. :) A three-hour show would make me very happy, though I know that's asking a lot. ;> I'm very glad they did "Gone" on this tour.

I can't think of any songs that I would drop... I was elated when they played 'The Ground Beneath her Feet' in Houston... my only wish is that they would have played "Ultraviolet Light" but I guess that was too much to hope for...

*Yes*YES*

hearing the ground beneath her feet was great....and then the very next night in dallas they opted for desire....which was allright, just not as beautiful...

I don't think that they should really "drop" any songs, simply because to hear any song live always changes its dynamic, and in a way meaning. For example - "Stay" was a song I liked greatly but never loved... one taste of it live, though, and I was hooked!

Now, I do agree that some songs could have been left out... like New York. Hell... I heard this song live in NYC, post 9-11... and I thought it was wonderful, but I think it will lose some of its importance, you know? It was one of those "good-for-this-tour" things.

One thing I will agree with you in is Mysterious Ways. It was fun to dance to and my friends and I could sing along happily... but it seemed a bit flat. I would have loved to have heard 11 o'clock for sheer entertainment sakes. ~lol~

I don't think they should ever get rid of Bullet... each tour it takes on a new feel and applies differently. Love it live better than anything else!

Oh... and the boys are planning a leg in Europe then finishing up their next album. They declined Australia and Asia because of ticket problems. (ateast as far as I know...)

And now you love me! ~AOH
