Couple of ATYCLB era questions @ 10:10 am

rockingthemike:
I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: Summer Rain- U2

1.) Just before "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" on the Elevation Tour DVD, something (a bottle?) was thrown at Bono. He looked pissed, and gave the reverse peace-sign. What happened?

2.) I received my copy of the 7 EP today in the mail. U2 Wanderer states that it's become 'rare' as of August 2002. How rare, and how much is it worth? I managed to nab one for $10 USD, and was just wondering if that's the going rate.

It may look like the reverse peace sign but that's not exactly what it means ;)

I know what it means. 'Reverse' implies opposite.

Nah the person got it far below this. Which is why I love throwing this at people in the US cos they have no idea what it is!

1) Hmm, I never noticed that before.

2) There is still a small stack of those at a Target just down the street from me, and they still go for $6.99. I guess they could be "rare" because they aren't making them any more, but I can still find them fairly easily at any Target.Funny that Wanderer claims it came out as "rare" in August 2002.. wasn't that about the time it was released..?!

No, I think it was released after the four Euro/Canadian singles, so right around the time that the tour was kicked off.

Correction: Wanderer has it listed as a January 2002 release. Hmmm, in any event, it's not like I spent that much more for it. And we don't have Target in Canada, so this was the only way to get it. ;)

It was released and deleted on the same day. So as you say, its rare because no more copies were made. But of course, you're most likely to find copies in most stores. They probably made loads! But Its still classed as a rare item.

Yes, yes.. you are all correct, it was in January 2002.. hmm. Yes, it is classified as rare because it was only released in Target stores? It's just a little funny to hear other people talk about how rare it is because we have Targets all over the place here, & the 7 eps are just sitting there collecting dust. Anyway, if you got it for $10, you got a good deal, considering if you didn't pay more than $4 in postage.

That explanation makes sense to me. So pressing wise it's rare, because only one was done, but there are still copies floating about. Good to know.

What it turns out to be is a big hunk of plastic and apparently the reason it was thrown was because a few people in the GA line were upset. Due to filming, the rumour is that Hamish went through and put "pretty people" in the front of the lines because they were filming last night.

I don't really believe this, but apparently someone was pissed and tossed that at Bono.

what a stupid reason. I really hope that 'fan' got tossed out. I'm sure there are hundreds, if not thousands that didn't get tickets for that show. That individual got GA. *laughs* Oh well.

I don't know. I think if you were one of the first few in line and then had about a hundred people jump infront of you for not being "pretty enough" that you'd be pretty upset too.

And that's a rumour, but what's thrown is a big piece of plastic.

The reverse peace sign in the UK is the equivalant of giving someone the finger. :X Basically means Fuck Off!

I knew that. ;) I was just wondering what happened to the fan. Bono looked really pissed on the DVD.

You want to see really pissed, you ought to check out the out-takes of Edge after "Gone". Heh. Really amused to see him barge of Larry's drum kit.

My bad. :X I just think it's funny when people seeing pics of Oasis or Pulp and they're giving that gesture, and they say, oh they're giving the peace sign! Oasis does it in like every picture! :X
