More U2 trivia! @ 09:35 pm

canadanne:
A regular on the U2 newsgroups posted a link to this neat U2 trivia quiz:

http://www.bailey7.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/U2quiz.html

It's a bit of a toughie, I think... I'm pretty good on U2 trivia but I only managed 33 out of 40!  Shame it doesn't tell you which ones you got wrong, but I think it's fun anyway. Who here can get the best score? :)

27. I suck.

But they needed less questions about Bono's vacations and more questions about The Edge's guitar techniques...then I would've been fine. :)

I got 34 out of 40. But I started over about halfway through cause my mouse kept clicking double, so I'd get one right and immediatly miss the next one.

That was a tough one. It does have a thing that tells you what you got wrong though--it's the round button at the top. Kinda a pain to keep up with. But interesting.


Gone to brush up on my trivia!

Oh yeah, I hadn't noticed the round thing was keeping track of the score!  It would be better if they told you what the right answer was, IMHO.

The ones I got wrong were:
~ year of U2's debut American gig (it's been a good three years since I read Eamon Dunphy's book!)
~ first single from The Joshua Tree (I wasn't a fan then...)
~ where Rattle & Hum premiered (nooo idea!)
~ name of the Achtung Baby studio (I hadn't realised I didn't know that)
~ the period when Love Is Blindness was written (can't say I've come across that piece of trivia before, although I should have guessed it)
~ name of the Sarajevo stadium (errr?!)
~ venue of the largest ever official attendance for a U2 concert (again, not a statistic I've ever come across or been remotely interested in knowing!)

i missed where r&h first premiered too. thought it was LA cos i know there was a premeire here at the chinese theatre but i guess there was another one first?
also missed the LIB question and show with the largest attendance.


i wonder how many people know the sarajevo question? i actually do happen to know cos i was there over christmas with my band.

Woohoo, I suck. I got 22 out of 40! Man, those questions were really hard and I consider myself a fan. Well, I guess I should learn to live and breath U2 a little bit more. Enjoy your Tuesdays!

35 out of 40. I missed:

-B-side of U2-3
-location of R&H premiere
-UK #1 single of R&H
-Tatoo (I'm amazed there's only one between the bunch
And one more, I forget. I think 1st single off JT.

Good quiz.
