Thanks for looking for the merch skelter! I see on Twitter there is a problem with not having the stock and a mention they might sell on u2.com later.

I don't know what they cost, let's say $40 (hope that's not a hilariously low estimate). My last one lasted (sort of) 26 years so that's $1.54/year, which is totally reasonable.

Wild Horses isn't on the list?? And everyone feels it was good. What the heck.

I think you can get a shirt for $40 (what i saw from jt2017). Hoodie will ofc be more.

Nyd? It's like the first 4 songs of jt2017. Zzz.

Enough whining from me. I can't wait for yt tomorrow of liawhl. Serene Bono... Who turns into devil's Macphisto.

It's annoying, but it's still damn cool that we get these streams at all.

And City Of Blinding Lights...I will never tire of that song.

I still think that it sucks for St. Louis that they won’t play any JT songs, given their canceled show last year. Seriously, 13 here’s synths would segue into Streets really well, thus ending the show on a high energy note, while also giving St. Louis a JT tune.

Just got back from the show and I agree.  It is disappointing that we got zero acknowledgement from the band about the show we lost, not to mention two less songs than Tulsa got on Wednesday.  I still enjoyed the show for the most part (the political stuff on the big screens got really old really fast), but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed.

My suspicion is that, once word gets out, that it may even have an effect on selling the remaining tickets.

I think it will.  U2 used to be great at getting their political stuff out there without ticking anyone off, but there is definitely a large segment of the American population that will be very put-off by the stuff being shown on the big screens this tour.

Plenty of musical flubs tonight. Blackout is the new Invisible. It was great to be there tonight on the other end of the Periscope.

The front page lists Let It Rain as the snippet, but I thought it was Love Reign O'er Me. I was dancing my butt off though and could have easily mistaken it. :) Anyone else hear The Who?
