Hello Hello!!

I'm currently feelin: curious curious
I'm currently hearin: 'God Part II (30 December 1989)' by U2

Hello everyone,

I am making this post for two reasons.

1. This has probably been asked before, but what is the favourite tour of everyone here? I have lately fallen completely in love with Lovetown (seems kind of appropriate, huh?) and I keep repeating my Lovetown recordings over and over. They played such an awesome variety of songs and setlists, when Bono's voice was in working order he sounded amazing, and the whole band came together as a fantastic unit. I believe Where The Streets Have No Name hit its peak on this tour, and little beats Hawkmoon 269 and God Part II live.

2. I'm not always up to date with quotes from members of the band, and considering how political they are (especially Bono), I was wondering if any of them had spoken any thoughts on the genocide currently occurring in Sudan. I posted this entry about it that I encourage each and every one of you to read (the situation truly is thoroughly horrific and people need to be aware of what's happening), and I was curious as to whether there had been any statements from the U2 camp. I guess, with the lost/stolen CD, they are focused on other things, but I'm passionate about this issue so I thought I'd ask anyway.

Have a good one,
Axver

1. I'd have to say my favorite tour was Zoo TV.

2. No, but I read your entry and was appalled. I had no idea something like this was going on. I'll post a link to your entry the next time I update.
I tried looking for a quote from Bono but all I got was splices of two different news stories. "Bono to receive civil rights award...genocide in Sudan" that sorta thing. He's most likely said something but it was never published in anything.

The situation is quite devastating, isn't it? I couldn't believe what I was reading when I was doing my research, and that would be fantastic if you could link when you update next. It's a shame there aren't any Bono quotes on the matter ... I might be doing a presentation at my school on the issue and I would have liked to have a relevant quote. As it is, I will probably use the "And it's true we are immune" verse from Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Zooropa/Zoomerang for me, no question at all!

Elevation because of all the amazing people I met in line for the heart. It was incredible!

Zootv and JT are up there as well.

Any of the JT tours.

Slightly off the subject but not really: Our town hosts Sudanese child refugees and places them with families, so the whole town has been made aware of it. It's been going on for probably about five years now, and I think it's a great program to combat at least a little bit of the horror that's going on in Sudan.

Ah, I absolutely adore the Joshua Tree Tour, particularly the first leg. Some amazing music was made then.

Oh, really? That's fantastic! It's wonderful to see that in the midst of apathy, some communities are putting in such good efforts to combat horror and raise awareness.

My favorite tour is Elevation.. probably because it seemed like the band was really close to the fans in concerts :) I hope the next tour's like that too.

that is an extremely hard question. i don't think i could possibly answer. i could say popmart, since it's the show that changed my life. or i could elevation, because of the amazing experiences i had. i could say zoo tv, because really, that's an addiction.... but i also really agree with you about lovetown. because even though the band were getting bored, every single show was on. the set lists were incredible, and as a guitar player, i'd say edge was really beginning to push the limits of what he could do. all along the watchtower - that really says it all.
