We, the fans, sing to U2
« on: July 17, 2018, 07:57:28 AM »
Here's what I suggest:
At a gig..... take a well-known song eg Queen's 'Fat Bottomed Girls', re-work the lyrics a bit.....
          'Lads you are welcome home tonight
           Back from your latest world tour
           And when you give it all you got
           4 north Dubs you make our rockin' world go round, yeah
           4 north Dubs you make our rockin' world go round'

Why? Cos at a gig I often want to say something a bit more eloquent than 'yeewaaaaay- faaaaaaab-whaaaaay.'  Twould be nice if we did something for them - they're always doing stuff for us.
Practicalities:   If there's a support group, ask them to run us through a rehearsal, then ask de lads on-stage...
If not, arrange with venue to play a backing-track, a few fans get on-stage and we sing.
Let concert-goers know prior to the event, so they're familiar with tune and lyrics......perhaps via a link in the Ticketmaster etc
e-mail: reminder of up-coming gig.

This song's suitable for'd be great if Dublin started this new thing....(I'll be there 6 Nov); fans going to other gigs could sing other songs.
(And don't forget to pay Queen their royalty.)

This is an idea I'm throwing can change it if you wish.

Sadly, I won't be there, but I like your idea!

I'm trying to think, what message do we fans want to send? Me, just a show of support I think. "We can hear you."
