I'm not sure if this has been asked but how's the view from being close to the main stage? Can I see whats happening on the tree if I'm 3 rows from the main stage?

Elijah is better looking than his dad. He takes after his gorgeous mom.

A setlist focused on Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience would be absolutely phenomenal!  California, Iris, Raised by Wolves, Cedarwood Road, Sleep Like a Baby, This is Where You Can Reach Me Now, and The Troubles should all get played regularly.  I'd love to see them try that Vertigo Tour version of Mofo too.

I think it would be hard for both of them, I'm sure dad would like to help but not too much, and son would like to make it on how own, although obviously doors will open for him given his name. Whether or not this will be his lifetime thing, looks like they're having fun for now!

Do, if they ignored The Joshua Tree songs, would that also include the rarely played b-sides?

Aargh!  We are curious now as to what it was that affected Bono's writing so much.  We are glad that he is still here to tell us that he had a bad moment.

I was off work for much of last summer and to help keep me sane, I followed news stories about Bono.  He looked well and was seen with various celebrities in the South of France either in or around Eze or at St Tropez during the summer months.
But he was in Nice on 14 July.  I read a number of accounts in the news from people that were in the same restaurant as him or knew someone that was with him.  I think I read that they watched the fireworks on the promenade and then went to the restaurant. They all had to be evacuated with their hands on their heads to a safe place as the police did not know if anyone else was at large in relation to the incident.  That will have been frightening.

Exactly. I didn't follow news about Bono too closely last year (and really don't in general unless it's posted here), but every single appearance of his that I saw, he looked very healthy. Either it's the terrorist attack or something internally wrong. I'm interested to see what his separate RS interview reveals.

I agree that I don't think it's come to light yet.  Bono will probably bring it up soon.

is this the only version of womanfish that exists?

Yes.

I asked Bono to play it on numerous occasions, he laughed and joked about it with me. On one particular meeting he remembered me and said you know if you keep asking we might just play it, however he said he would have to have quite a few drinks to be able to perform it as well as he did back then!! He told me he still has the jacket!! LOL.
you speak to the B-Man?

No. Ive met him on numerous occasions though. Sorry, did not mean to sound like his best pal or something.
still, that's pretty cool.

I followed the Vertigo tour across the US (26 shows) and that's when I met them quite a lot. Randomly too (bumping into them at airports, down town etc). Fun times.

Zoo TV meeting was the best thought. He was The Fly off stage too! :)

Back on topic. I LOVE the rawness of Womanfish. The song had potential but definitely need some polish. And the version of TTYW is also great for me. The first song we ever heard from the JT.
You like the version very much or just because it's the furst JT song?

I like the version very much, and the album version is my favorite song on the JT.
