Can't honestly say that POP really does much for me.

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!

yeh but its so downbeat,,,its not a happy upbeat tempo song like vertigo or even the miracle....u2 albums previously start with intent, power, groove and purpose.  this one starts with a resignation to defeat....

could easily have been a left over from passengers or the million dollar hotel soundtrack....and may be it is, who are we to know...

There's a difference between "resignation to defeat" and being meditative about life and what's important in life after a brush with death. LIAWHL fits in the latter category, not the former one, IMHO.

I'm excited as well, I think it's great that the band is acknowledging that era since it (as a huge Pop fan) seems like it's definitely been glossed over almost completely the last decade or so.

Whenever I've traveled to see U2 or any other band, I usually just go to the concert then turn around the next day and drive home. I would like to spend more time in some of the cities I've traveled to but my work schedule just doesn't allow it. Typically I can have ask for two days off in a row and then use a vacation day. So I'll drive to my destination on day 1, see the concert on day 2, drive home on day 3 and be back to work by day 4.

If I were to ever go to Europe to see U2 I would take a proper vacation of 10-14 days.

I'm in section 201 at the MEN which is virtually side-on to the screen.I'm not too bothered as the venue is small and U2 will sound great.I never, ever get close-up seats at a U2 concert anyway and I always have a fantastic time.The MEN is close to home but I'll be staying over & catching the train in the morning.I wonder if I could hang around the MEN and see U2 as they leave? Where would they likely exit the MEN?

To me it looks like there should be a reasonable view of the screen

General U2 Discussion / U2's social media page goes "Pop"
« Last post by miracle_al on February 15, 2018, 04:51:30 PM »
U2's last two social media (Facebook) posts have featured "Pop".  First, the 'Discotheque' video and, most recently, a photo from the KMart tour kick-off press conference.  Should we read anything into this, or is it simply a way to kill time before the tour starts?  Personally, I love the "Pop" era, so I'm delighted to see that the band is acknowledging it.  What are your thoughts?
