Why don't we the fans sing to U2!
« on: July 26, 2018, 11:38:10 AM »
At a gig. Take a well-known song, tweak the lyrics, and the entire crowd sing to them.
Par example: Queen's 'Fat-bottomed girls'......at a Dublin gig......
      Lads, you are welcome home tonight
      Back from your latest world tour
      And when you give it all you got
      4 north Dubs you make our rockin' world go round, yeah
      4 north Dubs you make our rockin' world go round.
Why?  Cos often at a gig, I want to say something a bit more eloquent than yeaaaaay-whaaaaar-haaaaayyyyy. So everyone has to say/sing the same thing at the same time to be heard.
Practicalities: obviously got to get permission from the venue people; if there's a support band, ask them to play this tune, rehearse it with us, then ask de lads on-stage.....
If there's no support act, maybe a few fans get on-stage, and lead us through the song, venue supplying backing track.
Fans could sing different songs at different venues.
Please, could Dublin be first (home crowd, plus I'll be there in November)
Concert-goers should be informed beforehand.
If you like this idea generally, but want to change it, feel free!

No.  This is not a good idea.

We are good at this in Nashville its possible.

During hockey games we change lots of words to songs and chant

I would like to lead the fans in singing "40" at one of the breaks in the setlist, or at least in singing "Shine Like Stars" if WOWY returns. I do both in my head every show and need to try this out loud next time.  (Poor people near me...)
