I've been pretty excited about the upcoming tour, but I'm not a fan of this idea.  I hope they scrap it.

(U2.com email 4/26/17)


"The chorus to Ordinary Love and one of the songs that might - MIGHT - turn up in the new show.

In fact, the word from Show Director Willie Williams is that there’s an idea to feature you all singing the chorus of Ordinary Love on The Joshua Tree Tour 2017.

Singing it in ordinary situations: walking the dog, on the treadmill, at the supermarket, doing the ironing, baking a cake, driving the car, in the shower…

It’s early days and the idea might not make the cut…. but you could make the difference.

Can you see yourself on screen at the show ? In the chorus, backing the band as they play Ordinary Love?

If you can, please get it our way by MAY 1ST."

There is literally nothing about this that is appealing.  The song, the "you perform it!" gimmick, the email.  Ugh.

 ;D  I wish I had thought to say "there is literally nothing about this that is appealing".  You summed it up better than I ever could.

If emails are going out about this already, unfortunately it is probably too far along to be scrapped.

At least I will know in advance when during the show to make a quick restroom trip.

They still insist on having YAWN moments in shows. The song got enough play during I&E no need to continue to play it here. Beer break time.

Hold on. April Fools Day is at the beginning of the month, isn't it? Lamest idea I've ever heard.

Didn't they do this with "Unknown Caller," during the 360 Tour?

I think it would be cool to send pictures in of what we looked like back in 1987
