Hello Hello!!


April 4th, 2005

Two questions @ 09:53 pm

treatyoself:
I'm currently feelin: calm calm
I'm currently hearin: "Sunday Bloody Sunday" - U2

1) Maybe this was just a rumor, but I thought I remembered reading something about actual legitimate recordings of Vertigo Tour shows that they were thinking about making available on iTunes, à la John Mayer's "As/Is" concert series. Does anyone else remember this? It was apparently just a rumor (unless they're going to release the best shows of the tour sometime later in the year), but I swear I read something about this. Anyone else? Or am I imagining things?

2) It was this community that first made me aware of the "Miss You Sugar" inscription on HTDAAB, but I never caught the reasoning behind it. Could someone fill me in on what it means?

Thanks!

PS: Can't wait for Chicago next month! :-)

The Itunes thing was a rumor, but there's been no official statement on it or announcement of any plans. I was at San Diego 1 and Anaheim 1 last week, and while being there was freaking amazing, there were quite a few mistakes and the shows were a little uneven musically...they were amazing to be at but I'm not sure they were shows U2 would want released given the attention to detail of their previous live releases.

Which Chicago show are you going to? We should have a little LJ meetup or something...:)

I'm going to the Monday, May 9th show. It'll be the first ever U2 concert for both me and my mom (I'll be 22; my mom's 41), so I'm pretty damn excited. :-)

Awesome. :) I'm not sure if i'm going to that one yet...I have class that night. But I may cave and end up going anyways, we'll see. I'm excited for you though...first shows are always amazing.

Haha, yeah, I have class too. In Iowa. But I already told my prof that I'll be gone for the concert, and instead of being upset, she was jealous! Loveit.

I'm actually having a concert-filled few days in May. My friend and I are driving from Iowa to Milwaukee for the Killers concert on Saturday night, May 7th (opening night of U2), and then I have U2 with my mom on Monday. It's gonna be quite a weekend!

Nice. :) Yeah that week is going to be nuts...I'm seeing Nine Inch Nails on Friday, U2 on Saturday, and then after the U2 run Doves are playing here on the 13th. I'm going to lose about 20 pounds from not eating because of this. It's called "the Bono diet."

1. I believe both the band and a spokesperson for iTunes said they were looking into the possibility of shows on iTunes, but it now appears that this - thankfully - will not happen.

2. I don't think anyone's managed to settle upon an absolute reason for that, just a few speculated reasons ...

I believe (am fairly sure) that the Miss You Sugar was a reference to Bob Hewson, or did I read that wrong?

OH MY GOD. Your icon is gorgeous and hot and sexy. I don't think I've ever seen the larger picture that was made from - do you by chance have that?

I'm going to save your icon on my computer (but not use it) just so I can find that picture - is that all right?

Thanks! I think so too. ;-)

But the reason I don't have it credited to anyone in my userinfo is because I forgot where I got the icon. I was thinking BonoOnline, but I didn't see it there--though a few of the icons were broken images, so it's possible. If any of you recognize it, please let me know whose it is so I can credit.

But I'll hunt around for the larger version of the pic. I have a feeling the BonoOnline gallery's gotta have it somewhere!

And yeah, no problem saving the icon.

Enjoy the hotness! ;-)

U2 is so picky about their live recordings that I doubt they'd just release them right away. If anything they'll do a best of the live on itunes or just stick with what they usually do.

if they do end up doing the itunes stuff, like releasing all the concerts as they are recorded, it won't be until they get the kinks ironed out in their minds.

It's on the bottom, the silver side. Look on the inner area where all the serial numbers and such are, and you should see MISS YOU SUGAR. Pretty crazycool, huh? :-)

There's a similar message on the Pop CD which I think is for Anne-Louise Kelly.
