I was at opening night in Las Vegas, and even with a few missteps, I thought it was the greatest rock show I'd ever seen.  Including ZooTV and all.  That is until 360, but that's a whole different era and tech, but the POP show in tiny Vegas stadium or whatever they call it today, was truly spectacular. Loved that era of U2.  Balls out! 

And now it's, 'You're the best thing about me...'  Ugh...  Please play 'Please' on this tour!
Some people are never f****** happy. I think this album is some of the most joyous and enjoyable work the band has ever done. They are 4 men comfortable in their own skin and happy with their lives and they aren't afraid to tell the world how they feel. Then along comes little keyboard warrior CLarryG with his/her 'ugh' comments and insinuating that everything was better 20 years ago. In 20 years time this same cat will be referencing SOE all misty eyed and saying it was 'better times'. Some people are just obsessed with reminiscing and feel the need to compare everything with something in the distant past. How about just enjoying things for what they are? Why does it all need to be a contest?

What was the answer?  I'm very curious

I was accepting some slight variations of the spelling on this one. So that's why I was specific in how I asked the question - not to ding anyone, but rather to cover everyone.

Good to hear that they are acknowledging Pop.  Fine album with a few flaws, but should never had been discarded to the extent that it was.

I think that it is time for the band to do a live album they haven't done one since Rattle and Hum what do you think?

Its too easy for everyone to obtain their music live these days. Lots of people film/record shows with their I-phones. Some even stream the entire show, in video, from their I-phone onto the internet. I watched several shows from the I&E tour in 2015 live streamed from peoples I-phones. Quality was so good it looked like a professional broadcast.

I suppose the one thing they can do though with the live video is create something and individual could not from just their particular I-phone angle in the arena or stadium.

The live album back in 1983 meant so much more then because back then it was much more difficult to obtain high quality live bootleg recordings and nearly impossible to obtain good live bootleg video of entire shows.

I also don't really consider Rattle And Hum to be a live album. I look at it as a studio album, with a few odd live tracks thrown in here and there.

The Band / Re: Bono vs. Freddie Mercury

Both are/were great.  Freddie had the better voice of course, but both were brilliant entertainers.  Maybe Freddie edges this, but U2 are the better band overall.
