A Rush of Blood to the Head, on vinyl.

Arguably their best album, and it came out at the peak of the CD era. So I thought it deserved the vinyl treatment for my collection. Great artwork too, makes for a perfect LP to own.

Love the Bruce connection.  :)

More comments on the KL/U2 collaboration from the producer of the track Mike WiLL Made-It. Posted the only relevant part.

When the tracklist revealed a U2 feature, people started to worry. But that song is just as incredible. You aren't the only producer listed on that one, but were you involved in getting U2 on the track?

That was Dot's vision. I'm definitely a fan of U2. I've seen Bono around a couple of times, just being around [former Interscope chair] Jimmy Iovine. I've had lunch with Bono; we even exchanged numbers and emails. We just never knew what we were going to do. And for Dot to just tie it all together, I'm sure he's had the same lunches with Bono as well since he also works close with Jimmy Iovine. Really, that came out of left field when he told me that he added him on there. I kept trying to imagine U2 on the first half of that beat, cause at first that was the only part to the song. And I was like, 'Dang, he put U2 on that?' I couldn't figure out what that would sound like. But when he let me hear the whole thing with the different sections, it came out dope.

Sorry to hear that Stateless. Kinda sad. You should go just to keep your iron man record.

Wish I could but my Wife would kill me.  As a consolation, she did buy me the Red Hill Mining Town 2017 Picture Disk and ordered me the Deluxe 30th Anniversary CD box set..so at least I have that to look forward too.

I attended the 2 L.A. Stadium shows in addition to 4 Arena shows in L.A. of the original tour.  Unfortunately, for the first time since 1984 I will be missing a U2 tour.  I moved to Idaho and we are in the process of building a new home, so funds and being too far away is preventing me from seeing U2 this time.  Feel's weird...never missed a tour in 33 years, usually see multiple shows on each tour...for I&E saw them 3 times...if there was ever a tour I wish I could go it is this one.  Now I am depressed!  lol

Anyone can save money. But does that mean you should spend that saved money on a ridiculous price? No, you're going to want to pay a fair price...$318 for a nosebleed is not fair. Especially in a stadium which should charge less My nosebleeds for the indoor shows were $118 and I was still VERY close to the band

For the opposite reason, that's why I always find GA tickets for U2 or similar artists to be a steal if they're in the $60-100 range. If someone doesn't mind standing so long, it gets you closer than most places and you don't have to break the bank.

The other thing we have to remember, we have been listening, well most of us, have been listening to the original version for 30 years....so of course a newer remix would take a while to sink in since we are so use to the original.  I really like the remix, but if I had to choose only one it would be the original..ask me again in 30 years and that might change!!!  :)

Sort of like when we hear a demo or live version of a song before even hearing the studio version, and then always finding something to nitpick!
