I thought this question was "what is Adam's spirit animal" and I have to say either a sloth or a giraffe.

Wow, sounds like youíre blind. Maybe your spirit animal is a mole. But not digging in a hole.

Quicksand - Interiors (2017).... the best album of 2017, perhaps one of the greatest of all time.
Tours / Re: Is it time for U2 to simply start greatest hits tours?
« Last post by Luzita on March 21, 2018, 01:06:45 PM »
I think what U2 is doing now is just right ó or at least, is the most likely to create a good concert experience for the broadest range of fans.

Iím glad theyíre still making new music and play a good sample from their latest album on each tour.   I really like their latest two albums but even if I didnít like them that much, they always do a great job live and it would make me sad to think they were no longer making new music. It would make me sad both for them as artists, and for myself, because I wouldnít have new music to look forward to that I might like better than the last album.

Iím glad they play greatest hits and sometimes lesser known songs from their very deep and rich catalogue. As a recently returned fan who hasnít seen them live since the eighties, I would be pi**ed not to hear those great eighties songs live again plus all the great more recent songs that Iíve never heard live. Though I know some people see them multiple times on every tour, Iím sure in every concert the majority of the audience are people whoíve seen them only a few times or maybe never.

Some of the suggestions that have been made in this thread would please only a small fraction of the fans.

Tours / Re: Any news or rumors about more tour dates for E&I Tour?

I hope the band adds another North American Leg to this tour so people in these cities which usually always get U2 shows can see them.

San Diego
Salt Lake City
Kansas City
somewhere in Louisiana
somewhere in Ohio
North Carolina

There are usually 25 or 26 cities or regions of the United States that always get shows from U2 when they tour. They only hit 7 of those cities on the Innocence And Experience Tour. So far on the Experience and Innocence tour, they are only hitting 10 of these cities.

But they are hitting Omaha, Tulsa, Nashville and Uncasville, which normally do not get visited by U2 when they tour.

Tours / Re: Ticket drop questions

I'd check a couple of weeks beforehand and then regularly up to the show. Mind no harm in trying on and off- I scored a GA for Manchester 2 just by having a go one evening a couple of weeks ago
I'd be interested to see if what we think are rarities versus the band - however the fact they are rehearsing so far out has made me think they are perhaps (could be famous last words) going to try and have a more flexible set list?

The risk with this pricing scheme is that you may drive away casual fans turned off by high prices for good seats. Once turned away, you may not get them back, even at cheaper prices. The market is not immune to pricing mistakes which this may possibly turn out to be.

When your popularity is waning, higher ticket prices are not the answer.

I don't care how much I love a band I still object to big ticket prices.  I cant even imagine paying $1000 + for a good seat! $300 for a seat behind the stage no way ever.  I guess I have never been that obsessed that I just had to see them or any other legend for that matter at such a price!  Will leave that to the punters who are prepared to pay those prices.

One great thing U2 has done for the hardcore fans is to keep the General Admission tickets relatively low in price. They were $45 dollars in 2001. In 2018 they are now up to $76 dollars which is only 10 dollars above the inflation adjusted price of the 2001 ticket. The General Admission tickets are the best tickets in the venue allowing fans to get up close to the band, front row quality viewing. Its been worth it to be a paid up member at in order to be able to get these tickets for each tour and every show. You save a ton of money and have the best seat or ticket in the house.

That sounds like really good value!  Wouldn't do me any good because they haven't been down under for so long.  If they do come I dread to think what the ticket prices will be!
I would love to hear any of the following: A Day Without Me, Like a Song, Wire, Hallelujah Here She Comes, Hawkmoon 269, God Part II, Love is Blindness, Dirty Day, Last Night of Earth, Yahweh, Stand Up Comedy and This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now.
