What's Bono saying at end of UTEOTW this tour?
« on: August 03, 2015, 02:28:14 PM »
Sorry if this is already  covered somewhere:
What is Bono saying at end of UTEOTW most nights this tour?
I know there's a snippet of "Love and Peace Or Else" often attributed in this site's account of the setlist, and I hear the "need some release,"  BUT

what's he saying here, for example, in Chicago, at 8:54ff?

Tim N  (of Crystal Ballroom Periscope fame) tweeted  me that B seems to be saying something different every night and seems to be reading from a book..Sounds like Tim's onto something.  He sure has lots of books onstage to choose from.  Wonder if he has pages marked that tie to the theme, or reads a random passage.

Anyone else have thoughts

I thought he was reciting Psalm 23 :
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

He recites Psalm 23 at the end of Raised by Wolves. The comfort me chants lead into UTEOTW.

Yes I get the psalm 23. This is something completely different. At the end of UTEOTW. You can hear some examples in the videos I linked.

Once he seems to have read CS Lewis, "Faith Christianity and the Church"
