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.

Easy to say. I thought I would be the same way. Then the tepid crowd response to Your Blue Room in Toronto was like a punch to the balls in the middle of sex. It ruined the whole performance for me.

Yeah?  :( I don't have that problem. As long as my viewing or hearing experience is not being physically obstructed, I can enjoy the moment with or without the crowd.

No one says South LA County (as I learned when I moved here) but that's where I am.

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 ?

          Hey, its youtube and were talking 2009-2011. There hundreds if not thousands of clips from nearly angle of every stadium on the tour. I've not seen the half empty sections or empty sections caused by songs from NLOTH. If this was so common, you should be able to point out at least few clips of this occurance that you talk of so much.

          I saw three shows myself on 360, and I did not see anything happen that did not happen on other U2 tours as far as crowd response and crowd behavior.

No one has ever left any show any ever even if just to get nachos or a beer or take a leak.

It's not on YouTube.

           I'm looking for the MASS exodus producing half empty or entirely empty sections. Thats not a tall order. You can tell a section in a stadium is half empty from over hundred yards away. From all the youtube clips I have seen, the stadium looks full everywhere you look. Thats not to say people don't get nachos, beer, or take a break, but that happens during ANY SONG, any show, on every tour, by every artist out there.

Have you ever heard of a research method called Participant Observation?

you're looking for videos people have uploaded that were filmed in darkness of other people getting up form their seat to go the bathroom during a U2 concert.

good luck .

             No, I'm looking for those half empty sections, the mass exodus during NLOTH songs. Not just someone going to the bathroom. By the way, there are youtube clips of people clapping, dancing to songs during the concert so even though its dark, you can still see that, plus the bands lighting lights up multiple sections of the stadium at times and even the entire stadium at others. Pretty easy to see all those alleged half empty sections due to NLOTH songs.

Make sure you watch EVERY U2 360 clip on YouTube.

Go ahead. See how many people filmed dark empty seats and draw a conclusion.

Charge on Don.

To answer the OP's question....I think this concert footage of Van Halen circa 1982 at the 19:25 mark put us U2 audiences to shame for generations:
