Predictions for tour name?
« on: January 19, 2009, 07:06:20 PM »
I'd like to hear something like the "Let Me in the Sound" Tour or something. I think the "NLOTH" Tour or "Get On Your Boots" Tour would be kinda lame. Thoughts?

"Sexy Boots Tour"? Might not sound family-friendly.

"Horizon Tour"? Doesn't sound kickass as Elevation or Vertigo...

Guess we'll see what cool phrases arise from other songs on the album.

Hey that would be pretty interesting...it would kind of parallel the Vertigo concept (or technically not parallel...maybe perpendicular? Never mind.)

I really like Get On Your Boots. I don't think it is cheesy. It's fun.

Stand Up Comedy tour. Instead of 10 minute speeches about the world Bono will entertain the crowd with "Edge is on fire" and "Angry Larry" jokes.

If they go with the Boots theme, it could be called "Boots On" Tour. So right now they're telling us to get on our boots ...and then once everyone has got them on, it's time for the tour.

How about "No Line" Tour? Hey, what if we didn't have to wait in line to get in anymore, eh?

It may be the "Stand Up" Tour....but I find that a bit boring.

Candy floss and ice-cream  ;D     (but that sounds like a Madonna tour  :-\)

but really, something without the ubiquitous 'tour' on the end, at least. I hope it's highly conceptual and unrelated to song titles.

You beat me to it with the "No Line" line. Awesome. But highly doubtful. Something tells me some long days are ahead of all of us seeking an experience like the last two tours. But maybe not. Maybe they entirely change it up. Just the same, great line!

Man. I can't wait to hear what the heck that Stand Up Comedy song is about..  ???

I like the Magnificent tour.. they could do this mini-skit in the middle of the concert where we see Bono do all of his "phases" through the years with mini-snippets of all the songs from the different "phases of Bono" (i.e., Mullet Bono- dons a mullet wig & sings Pride; Macphisto & Mirror Ball Man- dresses like Machphisto & Mirror Ball Man and sings DGPFYCC & Love is Blindness)..now that would be Magnificent.  ;)

But eh. It'll probably be something very fitting. They always seem to pick cool tour names, it's never anything really dorky or out of place.
