it's a blue sky...

Today's Selection is...

“Bullet The Blue Sky” from The Joshua Tree.

This is one of my favorite songs from The Joshua Tree.

When I first heard it, at a young age, I had absolutely no idea what Bono was singing, but I sang along anyway, making up my own words. My best friend and I would always mimic the Bono-yell at the beginning of the song.

I love how the song starts out with Larry’s almost-syncopated drumming, and I love the effect Edge uses with his guitar. And, how could I not mention Adam’s rumbling, intimidating bassline?

My favorite parts of the song are Bono’s falsetto “Whooo-oo-oo!”’s and the lyrics, which conjure up such powerful images.

And the guitar solo is amazing, especially live.

    U2 - Bullet The Blue Sky

Probably been covered before but...

Hiya! I've got a question...

I've never been GA at a U2 show. Every time I've gone, I've always had seats. I got some more U2 tickets for another show this year since I thought Seattle rocked so much and I got GA tickets with the hopes being really close to the stage. I'm planning on getting to our venue really, really early, but can anyone who feels like bestowing some information on me let me know just what exactly happens after you show up and park yourself ready to camp out all day in the name of U2 because you want to try to be one of first in? Wristbands? Numbers? Places in line? When the venue opens do people just BOLT for the stage? This is foreign to me, so I'd love it if you GA-going people with the experience could fill me in. I know about how the upgrade to the center goes down, but not anything else. I'm so excited for this one! It'll be totally different!

Thanks so much!

Are these good seats?

So, I am going to see U2 in Atlanta on November 18th at Philips Arena. I just wanted to ask some of you U2 concert veterans how good my seats are. I'm happy with anything....I'm just so ecstatic that I'm going, but I wanted to get an idea of what it's going to be like. I've never been to a concert in a big arena like this (okay...well.....I did go to an NSYNC concert in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome when I was in high school, but I don't like to admit it...there I had floor seats though). Thank you very much!

TM woe is me

Anyone need a GA ticket to Manchester 15th? I'm desperate to get rid of it... £40 would be enough.

Catch is that I have to pick them up from the venue the day of the concert. So we'd have to meet there.

Text or email me if you are (or anyone you know is) interested. 0064 21 120 2001 / amphibiousways@gmail.com

UK shows

So, the European leg of the tour is now underway and the UK shows are just around the corner - eeeee!  If you'll be going to the Manchester, London, Glasgow or Cardiff shows, please come and share your concert stories over at u2uk... anyone who's visiting the UK from elsewhere to attend the gigs is welcome to join in, btw!  Perhaps we LJers can look out for each other in the queue?

I dunno about everyone else but I'm getting so excited now. :D

Has anyone seen this months MOJO? They've got a huge feature on U2, including descriptions of the histories of Boy, October, The Unforgettable Fire, and Achtung Baby, as well as articles focusing much on the faith of the three Christians, and discussing what makes U2. A very interesting read. Its one of those things that I can say I've certainly learned a lot about U2 from, but I can't quite say what, because just about all of the facts, I knew already. Also, there's a compilation CD that the members of U2 chose the tracks for.
