Lip-syncing!?
« on: May 03, 2018, 07:42:22 AM »
200/$200 a ticket to see lipsyncing??

Watched a couple of videos of the Tulsa shows and blatantly obvious on Love Is All We Have Left and Elevation. For the love of...

PS/ the Tulsa crowd was terrible. Could they appear more bored?

And while he was lip syncing Dallas was playing the guitar under the stage to "supplement" Edge. I am sure they still do this way less than most bands.

I knew about LIAWHL and they were honest about it, but Elevation? Are you sure?

You must not have been following rumors.

LIAWHL is an INTRO, not a setlisted song. It is part of the visual.

Dallas has been playing under the stage since at least 1992, maybe later.
Prerecorded background vocals and keyboards have been used since 1984. Did you think Edge was overdubbing himself?

Are y'all new?

This is known and 100% fine with me.

But does anyone else think Elevation was lip synched? Because that would be a different matter to me.

It would matter to me too if none of the vocals were live. I seriously doubt that's the case.

Well, what if it were just a few lines?

I would not feel great about that. Bono reworked a few vocals to fit his current range, and that was the graceful thing to do.

Mariah Carey might have a few high notes she needs to sync but our guys are a rock band.

One thing I even like about them is - Bono had days where his voice was trash, even back in the early days. And when you think he'd just slink off after phoning in a show he couldn't get in tune with, he'd just work harder and harder. I think PopMart Rotterdam, the show started weak, but he pushed and pushed and suddenly (imho, during Found) his voice clicked and he went on to deliver an amazing performance for the latter half.

Maybe he can't just hard-work his way through it anymore, but I think this is a guy who would rework vocals or drop the song.

There's a reason we haven't been getting Drowning Man, and as disappointing as it may be, this is better.

There is no excuse for lip syncing LIAWHL. It is not a difficult song for Bono to sing.

The show was 26 songs long without LIAWHL, which is about the longest setlist they've ever done. Who cares if the introduction is more stage act than actual performance? The setlist is phenomenal.

I don't care about LIAWHL because it is a stage entrance, it was billed as a recording. They've entered on recorded songs before, it's fine. And this particular one seems almost crafted for the purpose.

Elevation is totally different. When I get a chance I'll watch it.

Yeah...

LIAWHL is meant for AR phone app with the screen. It's an entrance

Didn't look or sound lip synched to me on Elevation. I mean if it was, I would surely expect a better use of vocals for it, as he sounds his usual off-key, more excitement than note hitting self.
