But TJT is full of Eno augmentation.

Beautiful Day for example was borderline Karaoke... :)

I felt at the start of Beautiful Day, Bono's vocals were coming through but the mic wasn't near his mouth. But they did sound like live vocals, so I just brushed it off to me not being able to see clearly.

Well what can I say. That was the most incredible weekend I have ever experienced. Never have I been to something as big as two sold out Twickenham Stadium shows with U2. Absolutely mind blowing. They are the most incredible band and truly one of a kind. Will post show reviews tomorrow. Atmosphere was incredible for both evenings. I have to say best shows so far this tour!

I'll probably post full thoughts once I've slept, but... What an amazing evening!

And, while I've no idea if she reads / posts here, I'd also like to say a massive thank you to the person who must be a contender for the "nicest person in the world award", for giving up her spot on the rail so my (rather short) daughter could have it. Her kindness was really appreciated.

That was nice of that fan to give up her space.  U2 fans are the best!

They were defintely not being sung by him and were pre recorded. Not sure why they did that.

I noticed that during the Cleveland show! I just chalked it up to being some sort of sample at the beginning of the song (since I noticed the vocals but he was right in front of us clearly NOT singing) and then figured he sung the rest of the song live. I don't understand the purpose of this since it really cheapens the concert.

BD was a strange one. They played a few snippets of the 2000 studio version as the song was being introduced. Let's be clear they weren't there pretending to be anything they weren't. They were just effects building up to Edge coming in. Reminded me of the Elevation remix at the start of the Elevation shows but not as good.

But yeah the overdone effects throughout were a little too Coldplay.

Defo samples of the single version before the edges opening guitar chords in beautiful day. I liked it personally. Throught it was a fresh opening for the song
