Wish list of opening acts
« on: November 29, 2009, 01:37:40 PM »
Who would you like to see open for U2 in the upcoming tour legs? I think they picked some great groups: Muse, Kaiser Chiefs, and Snow Patrol. Here is my list.

Chemical Brothers
Paul Oakenfold
Franz Ferdinand
Richard Ashcroft
Metric



Boom Cha!

I hope they don't add a pop group like Black Eyed Peas again, I went to the Norman show and they were there.. It was god awful.
I would shoot myself if I saw Lady Gaga or someone such like as the opening act.

An old timer such as myself would love to see Clannad. I have never seen them live before and U2 used to play Harry's Game at their concerts. Bono did a duet with them so they have a connection. Clannad are legends and amazing Irish musicians but can also do very contemporary things. I don't know if anyone else would care at all, but for me it would be an amazing evening of music!

I wouldn't mind a blast from the past with the Alarm even though I know that won't happen. For those too young to remember, this band ranked as high as U2 for their emotional live shows. They were nothing short of amazing and complimented U2 's style of music as an opening act in those days. You did not leave the same as when you went in to that show. Legendary!

I think either if these two would be as amazing as any contemporary band but I don't think younger fans would really be interested in either of them.   Oh well......I can dream.  ;)

I like Northern Soul's pix too...

Muse or Kasabian would be exciting because I have never seen either of them live.

Other bands I would love to see open:

Metric
Phoenix
Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs
Mother, Mother

And Strong Girl Clannad and Alarm would be neat to see too...but maybe only for us OLC'ers

I dont know if anyones noticed, but Muse has not booked a US/Canada tour this summer, but instead have left open from June 19 to Sept 4, they could possibly join U2 for their run of shows which would be awesome.

Muse does have a show in the Netherlands scheduled on the 19th of June. That would make it very difficult to get to Seattle the next day to open for U2. So that doesn't really help me. I would love to see them again.
