Okay, well I've heard from concert reviews or experiences of people waiting outside the venue to meet with possibly Bono or the Edge as they come in the venue. How can I achieve this? How early do the members arrive to the venue? How early should I be there. I'd like to meet them at Staples Center... I believe where the back entrance is for the venue, but can someone who has a clue please inform me.
I'd like to thank Bono for changing my life with his actions and simply playing the music he plays and show him my One campaign wristband... and maybe take a picture with him. :)
if anyone has one i NEED recording of last nights show. hehe. reading reviews, it sounds like this show totally suprassed opening night as the band were far more relaxed and more die hard fans were in attendance as opposed to a lot of media types like for opening night. we all need to hear GLORIA!!! if someone has it, post it for us or send it to me!!
Who will be at the show tommorrow at the Pond? Raise your hand and say "HOLA!!"
Does anyone have the origional version of The Sweetest Thing they'd be willing to send me? I'm pretty sure I have it on vinyl, but haven't listened to it, and my vinyls are at my house at uni.
Today's selection is
"Pride (In The Name of Love)" from The Unforgettable Fire (1984)
Thoughts: I know it's completely cliché, but this remains my favorite U2 song of all-time. Probably because it was the first song I remember hearing of the band and it was the song that made me fall in love with U2. Yes, once again, I say that I've succombed to cliché, but I don't care really. "Pride" is the song that, I think, defines U2 more than anything else. There is no other song, at least from the time I started listening to music, that so signifies any other band than this song. It's like actors in defining roles. You can't imagine any other band would have the guts to match what U2 did with this song. If I were to hear a cover of this song, I would turn the radio off. No question. No other band can duplicate the signature sound that U2 does. Okay, enough gushing. The song begins on the perfect note and just jumps right into it. The chorus is as anthemic as they come. What's unique about this U2 song is that, ever since I first heard it ten years ago (during a preview for a movie no less), I've developed favorable feelings to different parts of the song. I first loved the backing, driving guitar, then I loved the beginning of the second verse ("One man caught on a barbed wire fence"), then I loved the instrumental bridge (which, I think, remains such a strong solo), and then the "Mmm"'s that followed, and it goes back and forth. I just, I love this song with all my heart. I break into cheers whenever I hear it on the radio or it plays on my Winamp list. It was the song that made me a U2 fan.
Has anyone seen any covers created for the recent San Diego show? I'm creating some box sets for friends, and was hoping to include covers and inlays...
Hi, all. Could someone please help a poor girl who was working so hard she missed half the links from the 3/28 show? If anyone has the following, I would be eternally grateful:
New Year's Day
Running to Stand Still
Thank you so much! I'll be quicker on the draw with the upcoming concerts, I promise. ;-)
whoa. Bad play in the credits of Taking Lives....WHOA.
ive been listening to Running To Stand Still from the last two shows, and ive realized something that i had forgotten before.
The Edges voice is so beautiful, it makes me cry. I wish he would sing more than backing vocals. I love the version of Sunday Bloody Sunday that he sang.
I just had to get that out to people who would understand. I tried explaining to my friend and she looked at me like i was crazy.
I don't know why, but for years and years, I thought "With Or Without You" was the song they played during the future scene of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure."
That was a great movie but it would have been so much better with "WOWY" in it....
Tomorrow is April Fool's Day. I wonder if the band will play a joke on the crowd. Like come out as the Dalton Bros., or turn around and face the back of the stage. Or play their setlist backwards.
Anyone know if they've had April Fool's Day concerts before? Have they played a trick any of those times?
