U2 @ the Echo Awards @ 11:19 am

needleandspoon:
I'm currently feelin: chipper chipper
I'm currently hearin: Cedars of Lebanon, U2

Thanks to striped_bouncer for the heads-up. Our Guys performed GOYB at the Echo Awards in Berlin last night and while I think the Brits were better, this is still very cool. The intro in particular is fabulous; I love the way the refrain from Das Deutschlandlied segues into the song.

The first vid is some footage from outside the stadium, "Berlin Welcomes U2" and the second is the performance itself.

So far I'm liking this song a little bit better live. Also, on the more superficial side, I'm loving Edge's plaid shirt.

Oddly enough, I'm not liking Edge in plaid. I miss the graphic tees :(

(On the other hand...Larry not wearing plaid is PHENOMENAL.)

Although, unfortunately, Larry appears to have applied some aluminum foil to the front of himself. lol

You mean that lovely shinyness that screams Zoo era? I think it highlights the fact that he doesn't button his shirts ;)
(Just don't tell Adam I like it...don't want him getting jealous. LOL!)

I agree the Brits performance was the best one so far. U2 is sounding good though
I love this opening though
The Edge is looking buff
I like what Adam is wearing he is looking good and playing confidently
What the hell is Larry wearing?
Is it me or is Larry playing slightly slower this time??

Is this supposed to be like a The Fly comeback? I know a lot of people would complain if that happened and it's totally understandable, but I think that would be totally cool! lol

Or maybe it's the child of The Fly and MacPhisto since Bono is wearing shades AND eyeliner ;D

This is totally great! Not digging the lyrics on the video though... Don't know why...


YAY U2 IS BACK!!!! *excited*

I think a big dose of MacPhisto is exactly what U2 needs. There's been way too much earnestness the last few years. But I agree about the lyrics on the screen, they seem a little to karaoke-y.
