I don't watch a lot of TV. I DVR The Daily Show, Being Human, V, and some reality shows I refuse to admit to. And when I'm not watching those, I watch old episodes of Sex And The City, Frasier, and The Nanny. :)

Order is restored.

I don't either....unless you count movies. If you do, then I love TV!

From U2.com - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

'Trem das Onze', a samba composition by Adoniran Barbosa, was playing ahead of the band's arrival on stage tonight. It's one of the most famous of all Brazilian songs but when it gave way to 'Space Oddity' finally Brazil knew that U2 were heading to the stage and before we knew it we were all caught up in 'Even Better Than The Real Thing'.

'Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo...' Bono sang, the whole stadium grateful that there was no rain coming down as the first of three shows here got underway.  'Even Better', already in contention for the best opening track of the tour to date, led into I Will Follow and then 'Boots, two tracks written thirty years apart but you'd never know it from the reaction of this super-passionate audience. Phenomenal sound from all around.

We've had some mixed weather in Sao Paulo today but it was dry as the first of three shows in this city got underway, with spectacular shards of lightning in the sky illuminating a helicopter buzzing over the stadium.

'Wow! Thank you. Obrigado.' said Bono. 'Tonight is Saturday in Sao Paulo...'

Introductions to the band took a pizza twist with Bono describing himself as the pepperoni pizza, Adam as the banana pizza and Larry... 'No cheese, no tomato, no pastry, no pizza - we call him the good looking pizza. Larry Mullen on drums.'

An acoustic version of Stuck In A Moment made its way back into the set tonight, dedicated to Julian Lennon to whom the band led a rendition of Happy Birthday.

'We'd like to sing this song for a friend of ours, Julian Lennon... here's a song about friendship.' 

With a stadium of Brazilians singing along word for word, it was a little bit spine-tingling, as was the poetry read by a young woman who made her way into the spotlight  before Beautiful Day.

'We're so proud to be friends of Brazil,' said Bono, as,  a beautiful night coming to a close, he paused  to pay tribute to the people of this country and to President Dilma Rousseff. 'We salute you, we salute her.'

And then an incredibly touching moment with Moment of Surrender going out to those who lost their lives in the shooting at Tasso da Silveira school in Rio di Janeiro on Thursday.
' This has been a difficult time for Brazil... and what happened in Tasso da Silveira.
'We'd like to dedicate this to the children and the mothers and their families and the teachers and the people of Brazil.'

And as Moment of Surrender offered its beautiful benediction, the names of the children who lost their lives illuminated the giant screens around the stage. Unforgettable.

Hold up, order is restored? But I distinctly recall this at the last show from you-

Quote
Another song from NLOTH is dropped - Magnificent.

Even Better Than The Real Thing lost its slot as an opener, notwithstanding all the hype the forum fans are giving it as the best opener.

Pride is something I voted for in a recent poll to replace an ATYCLB song, if ever it would have to be replaced.  Turns out U2 did it one better by replacing a NLOTH song.

I may be going against the tide of this forum where a lot seem to be disliking U2's decisions more and more, but the tide I ride is U2's.

And every single one of those was comprehensively disproven tonight- not to mention how much the Zooropa rehearsals further shoot mto bits your claim that U2 have no time to relearn old songs as they not only are playing old songs but are playing them in ways they have *never* been played before.

It's like I've said a few times now;

Step 1- Jick predicts something
Step 2- Jick is disproven
Step 3- Jick claims victory

And here we have the perfect example!  :D
