Here is the alleged, no response, non cheering crowd, during a song from NLOTH at the Rose Bowl:

Where are the empty sections and lines for the bathroom?

Here is another one filmed by a person in the crowd:

             I've yet to see any video of empty sections(because people went to the bathroom) and lines for the bathroom on youtube for any of the 110 shows of the tour.

It's all relative. For that size of crowd it was very quiet.

The crowd reaction on zoo TV was orders of magnitude louder than it was during the new  songs on 360

              No it wasn't. I saw ZOO TV 4 times, met the band and listened to them practice the Outside Broadcast for a week before the first show. I saw 360 3 times. There was no difference.

            Hey, you said you could hear a pin drop! Besides, since everyone knows the band starts out with new songs at the start of the show, more reason to skip the start and go in later for the stuff they came to hear, according to your little theory! LOL

               Hey, its your theory just being tested. Keeping it real, just for you!


          Here is another song from NLOTH where it is alleged that much of the crowd went for beer, bathroom, or sat down and were UNRESPONSIVE!

By the way, where are the half empty sections?

No Everyone does not know that.

Especially the crowds of casual fans and corporate types at the rose bowl.

And as the 360 tour showed they abandoned starting with a new song. He'll even on the DVD the opener was relegated.

No one is convinced by anything you say regarding 360.

         U2 must of really FLOPPED with WAR. I mean, they opened with four songs from another album every night of the WAR tour. Then, they only ever played 6 songs from the album during the concert, one less than NLOTH.

         Where are the half empty sections? How about those crickets and unresponsive fans?

       Where are those half empty sections, beer and bathroom lines? Where are the fans that are sitting down?

Be serious.

Who's going to be filming people leaving and empty seats.

You've been told many times by many people in many threads about the impact the new songs and obscure songs like YBR had on the audiences.

       I've seen U2 19 times, including 3 shows on 360. I don't need you or anyone else to tell me about the impact of these songs on the crowd. I've seen it myself.

             I am serious. You and others talked about half empty sections. Find a youtube video of a half empty section. Sure, the band may not film it, but people with their little camera's would.

             In any event, when the band show crowd shots of half the stadium or the entire stadium during these NLOTH songs, it looks completely full! Yes, there are bound to be some seats somewhere that are empty for whatever the reason, but that could be said for any song. The alleged occurance that you describe during these NLOTH if true, is so tiny and small, it is insignificant!

             But please, show me the video. We live in an age now where everything at public events like this is filmed! So please, show us the half empty sections, beer lines and bathroom lines during NLOTH songs. Were waiting!

get real

who in their right mind is going to film (regardless of the logistics of getting good lighting in a dark part of the stafium) empty seats ?

I've told you it happened, as have many others.

Get over it.

Deal with it.

Oh, and don't pull the "I've seen U2 XXX times" BS, that just makes you look part of the ridiculous "true fan" police.

         Its not that they would specifically film it, it would simply show up in the film of other things they were filming. There are hundreds if not thousands of youtube videos filimed by fans from all different sections of the stadium. You should be able to find
some that support your points. The fact that you can't is pretty telling!

I saw U2 in 1981

I can't find a youtube clip of that show

Must not have happened

I've filmed hundreds of clips

I never once filmed an audience section

Maybe there were no audiences

Or maybe my focus was on the stage area

Who'da thought to point the camera at the STAGE ?

In other news, I think JTBaby and I are neighbors you guys!

Also, I don't care if nobody else cheers or if everybody else cheers. If I like the song, I'm going to enjoy a live performance.
