Tours / Re: What would they tour next year?
« Last post by bonolarryedgeadam on November 14, 2018, 03:06:50 PM »
If the 2019-2020 rumor is true I could also see them doing a similar stage setup and setlist as Dreamfest from a few years ago.  I imagine they would sub in some SOE songs basically making it a greatest hits*SOE tour. Another possibility is they wait until 2020 and do a 40 year Boy tour. Seems unlikely though. I doubt a 30 year Achtung Baby tour would occur just in Australia. That would anger many fans.

It appears as if there is a good chance that Australia and possible Asia  will see u2 in late 2019 through some of 2020.   I could see these shows having setlists similar to the one they performed at Dreamfest a few years ago with a few SOE songs subbed in. So r wouldnít necessarily be TJT 30 or E+I, but rather a greatest hits*SOE

Oooh, an October love fest!  Count me in!  It's for sure my favourite of the first three albums.

I love Is That All?!  Sure, that awesome riff is taken from 'The Cry', but that song was never officially released on an album or single or anything, so to me it doesn't really count.  I'm just glad they used that riff somewhere in their official catalogue. 

I Fall Down, Rejoice, and With A Shout (Jerusalem) are all underrated, kick ass rock songs as well.

And Scarlet is such a powerful song too.  So much of a story told from just one repeated lyric.  I remember being pleasantly shocked standing in GA during the 360 tour when they started into this.  I never in a million years would have thought they'd dust that off...

That's it, I'm off to listen to the album now for the first time in a while.

Oh I'd love to see them top 27 shows...

If they did 27 shows of all three tours it still wouldn't atone for 8 years of neglect of OZ.

Longer breaks from touring OZ is the norm for U2 during their career. OZ, is not guaranteed a tour for every album. It was 8 years between the POPMART shows in 1998 and the Vertigo Tour shows in 2006. Thing is though, it might be 2023 before they make it down to OZ now, and that would be 13 years away.

That was only one tour (Elevation) though, there's been three tours that we've missed out on though. I got into U2 at the tail end of 360 and haven't had a chance to go see them yet, which really sucks

If the rumor is true about An Australian tour, what do you think it would be about? I donít think it would be experience+innocence and it definitely wouldnít be a JT tour . Would this be the official start of them doing greatest hits shows? I imagine they would reuse the JT2017 stage but no painted screen an no tree stage. Itíd probably resemble the Dreamforce stage more +JT screen resolution

I think this will be a 30th anniversary tour for the LOVETOWN TOUR. Lots of songs from Rattle and Hum and Joshua Tree. Most people don't realize this, but Joshua Tree is not U2's best selling album in Australia. That title belongs to Rattle and Hum. I think the setlist will be even more focused on the 80s than the Joshua Tree Tour 2017 setlist was. Probably only 3 songs from the period after 1990 to the present. A stadium tour with a different stage design from the JT tour 2017, for Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Probably 15 shows in total.

Bonos messing up the words to get out of your own way really bad. And edge played a few bad off notes. Yikes. Theyíll probably us Berlin night one for this one

Its a live show, not a studio recording. There are mistakes in the historic Red Rocks show. So what?

Wons I am getting tired of your attitude. Itís a forum for people to share opinions, and have chats about the bands and their shows and music.  Youíre right itís a live show, Iím describing a live mistake.

I just shared my opinion. If your tired of it, thats not my problem.


As several of us have tried to point out to you, it's not the opinion so much as it's the attitude and tone you use when expressing it. We don't want to be hurtful towards you, but we're really starting to tire of the know-it-all attitude you throw around on this forum.

And, as a big super U2 fan like you claim to be, you should know that the band has become notorious for wanting perfection on audio and video releases. That's why ever since they have been able to afford it and the technology has been available, they generally film multiple shows and it's not a coincidence that they wear the same clothes, or have a static rotation of the same outfits, for many shows on a tour. If a song doesn't go well the night of the official video filming, they can just splice in the film of that same song from another show.

Thank you for saying this.  It needs to be said again since this particular issue is all over this forum.  It has been said before, I've read the posts but it still continues.  It detracts from having a good discussion on the forum.  Enough is enough.

Now, I'll be accused on not talking about U2 and U2 stuff.  Cue the response in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1........

You can talk about ME all you want to. Its not going to change anything though.
