Dalton Brothers and other JT nostalgia
« on: January 19, 2017, 08:34:23 PM »
so.... not news, just musings.... just wondering how many JT era redos will we see? The dalton brothers opening? Stand by me with the house lights on to open? Bono in a wife beater? f*** the revolution? That they're not playing Tempe, AZ is telling, and they've stated this is a tour for 2017, not 1987, but I just wonder if they can't help themselves?

I'd love to see the Dalton Brothers, and I bet less than 5% of the crowd would still know who they really were, but i just don't see the band bringing back the styles of the first tour other than maybe the odd cowboy hat.  Bono will learn from Sting's mistake of trying to rock a vest in your 50's.

Yeah, I'd love to see a bit of the Dalton Bros, too. And, maybe Edge's old black hat.

And, still hoping to see that Tempe show get scheduled. Yeah, I know...love is blindness. But it could happen.

The reason that the Dalton Bros. worked in 1987 was because we were so far away and there were no big screens. In LA some in the crowd were booing. We weren't that far away, but didn't realize it until part way through because only 1 in our group had binoculars. I guess they could leave the video screen off.

Hmmm...... "Rock and roll stops the traffic!!" on the screen behind the band?

I hope that they use the Vertigo outdoor stage.

Not exactly the Vertigo Tour Stadium setup; but it would make sense to use the giant video screen used on the Vertigo Stadium setup.

Wow...it's like Carrot Top meets Axl Rose.  Seeing that would almost make me nostalgic for Dashboard Confessional.

There is an incredible amount of 'layers' to this video. When watching this it is pretty evident U2 are comedically talented as they are musically. Maybe the Irishman An Tha can really explain what is happening in this video.

I love it that they have such a funny side. Look at Edge and Adam. They aren't hard to miss. It's about not taking yourself too serious for me.
