I didn't get selected for the U2 by U2 book signing so I hope I have better luck this time!  It just so happens our winter break (I teach HS) starts Monday so it couldn't be better timing.  No winter storm in the forecast either!

I am a bit confused by the "please include your U2.com details" part.  There is no place on the page to do this, although you do have to be signed into your u2.com account to access the page so I'm guessing my answers to which day and guest questions are tagged with my details.

It also seems to take multiple "entries" so I did 2, one for Sunday and one for Monday.  I don't think bombarding them with 100's of submissions will help.

Well, I doubt it's a press conference. It says performance. It's still pretty damn exciting. Guy's influence again no doubt. I wonder if he's read the posts here about U2.com membership "perks".

My thoughts....

I'm thinking they want to do a promotion and rehearse for JF on Sunday.  The Monday performance may be for JF but I doubt it only because it says that you have to be prepared to wrap up and be warm and brave the elements.  So not sure why U2 would want to play outside in this weather but if I'm selected I will be surely be there!  There may be another announcement....tour, possibly.

Maybe waiting outside in line for performance inside....I guess that is a possibility too.

there's no way they'd do this just because.

The more I think about it, I think it's probably a rehearsal then the taping.  You probably have to stay in line outside and they will bring in U2 fans for the performance only.

I'm not sure if JF is using the same studio but his Late Night studio had a balcony above the stage where they often put fans of the performer. 

Even if I had to stand outside in line for 2.5 hours to see 1 song, it would be fun to have that unique U2 experience!

**Update:  Just saw that JF is in a new studio (6B instead of 6A) but they built an exact replica of his current studio so the viewing areas above the stage will still be there.  Any one want to bet an over/under on how many times I will check my email after 5pm tomorrow night?

Yeah if they'll be in town rehearsing all day why not get some extra buzz and fan (and website!) goodwill by playing a few songs for the locals. Quite cool and quite jealous.

Western NY is likely 3-4 hrs from NYC and that would be the same for me. We should get the chance too!! And remember, U2 played live at Fordham in the Bronx for NLOTH. Maybe they will play there for this.

By car, NYC is about 7 Hours from Western NY but still did only NYC residents get the email? I would have bought a flight from TX for this chance.

I'm glad it's only open to NYC subscribers. There's a limited amount of spots and people would flake out and not show up, especially if they're coming cross country. Not to mention the crazy weather we've been having impacting travel.

Huh? They will be in New York for the tonight show, but I thought that was Tuesday. Are they planning something else? This doesn't seem to make sense. If they play a concert and no new material, it'll disappoint. If they play new material, they risk it being bootlegged.

There must be a video shoot or something else in this........this is not normal behavior.....

Interesting to see how the first moves in this new promotional campaign are aimed at the US market - the Super Bowl commercial, the forthcoming Fallon appearance and now this. Wonder whether this is new strategy from the new manager to target the US first as opposed to Europe and/or other markets.

I'm hoping this doesn't mean that we didn't win!  Maybe they haven't notified people yet?  Hopefully?

Since I didn't win, maybe sour grapes, but now I am even more ticked at U2.com that the email said that winners would be announced last night. Added anxiety for your members, as I don't mind losing, but this was a FAIL in many ways...not shocked at all!

be aware that this is not exclusively a u2/u2.com thing... it involves the production dept of the show, potentially even the network... so, lots and lots of back and forth and all manners of assorted etcs...

but be sure the notifications will be sent...

For Sundays taping I'm sure they know a few extra people might turn up. Maybe even up to a couple of hundred, and this is planned for. This is a guess.

I just tweeted Guy Oseary. See how cool he is :-)

Think Sunday is just a dry run for Monday's taping, maybe with an unannounced special guest? Hence the waiver?

I think you've got a better shot of interacting with the band more on Sunday than the actual taping on Monday. Probably less going on.

Hmm...interesting location.  I know exactly where the Hallmark and GNC are and it's not outside.  I guess maybe after the check-in you'll be brought outside somewhere.  They might be doing something at the Rockefeller Center plaza which is outside.

Never been to NYC but is that Plaza outdoors and open to the public? If they're making people on Sunday sign NDA's then I doubt it will be anything outdoors in view of the public. But who knows. I'm pretty sure details will leak anyway. And if not, it's only a 24 hr wait (you would think)

I avoid Rock Plaza like the plague because it's so congested with people, mostly tourists. Yes, it's outside. And filled with tens of thousands of people.

All four were there. A friend of mine got to go which makes up (sort of) for her not winning a spot to the show tonight.

Went along. Hoping somesort of gathering outside that I could mooch in on, but no luck. Circled the building a couple of times. Asked staff... but they had no clue anything was going on. Although one did tell me he was sworn to secrecy. Saw Denis Sheehan (U2s tour manager), initially thought it was Bonos bro. They look very alike. Decided to give up then. Poor me I say.

P.S. Heard a helicopter overhead the whole time... so guessed they were performing on a rooftop.

Yeah this is for Jimmy Fallon's debut as host, it's not U2-centric...at least not as U2-centric as everyone wants it to be.

Apparently Rutgers Marching Band opened up the Super Bowl. Going to be quite the spectacle I imagine.

Oooh, I'm curious! Just hope it doesn't kill me. They've warned us much of the new album sounds nothing like U2, and the Invisible we heard is a RED edit. Could the album Invisible sound completely different? I doubt it, Rutgers would be doing Larry's drumming part. I still think Messenger and TheU2Ken are right though, the band's for Fallon's entrance/farewell.

We're told that it was taped because they're not certain if the weather will be good enough to do it again tomorrow. If it is good enough, they'll do a different song (probably OL). If not, they got something on film that can be used if they so choose.

I see, I didn't really take that into account because I thought the whole show including its performances would be live as it goes to air.

Yeah, that would seem to be how they'd want to do it. And the crew that explained it that way might've just been making stuff up. Who knows. We'll find out tomorrow, I guess.

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to share my 30 Rock experience which was ill-fated. Some u2 friends and I drove down to 30 Rock yesterday and arrived at around 1:00PM. We were hoping for an outdoor rink experience but our intel was sorrily wrong. When we got there we sleuthed around for some info and ended up seeing Sam O' Sullivan and Joe O' H around but they wren't telling. There was some random marching band there but there was plenty of crazy-ness at 30 Rock. Think Sweetest Thing video. We waited around this mysterious empty store for about an hour or two while some NBC interns started managing the situation. Security was uber-tight and being on the list was mandatory. There was between 75-to 100 fans there and some obvious NBC email listers as well. We would have got in some of U2's people were around but NBC crew was towing the line and letting 'no-one' in.

The email listers were brought into a room like cattle de-briefed and phones checked etc., etc. Then they were moved up to the 30 Rock observation elevator 10 by 10. Yesterday was just a filming with the real action happening today. Today there is going to be the show taping and probably the U2 outdoor taping as well. It was one of those days when even the most persistent and audacious fans get denied. It wasn't really a fan show more of a promo taping with a few CGI people in the background. It could be possible that these songs will be on JF's website or run over the credits. I would imagine time is going to be really tight on the show so I would be surprised if they got to play two songs. But you never know, this is u2. I'd imagine tonights show will feature some great skyline shots with u2 playing a la the Clarence in 2000.

Oh and codeguy, I only really liked you for your email! :)

Dallas was a total gentleman.

Not really. He said it sounded great and that it would be out in April. That was really it.

Hmmm. Well, Ordinary Love was a lot nicer than I expected; it's one song which is better acoustic than full band.

But I won't deny I was a bit disappointed with Invisible; I know some disagree but I was genuinely shocked at how bad Bono's voice was at times, notably on the second chorus and the "There is no them" coda. Presumably that was his best take which was picked too, so that doesn't bode well. But his voice was great on Ordinary Love, so at least we know that's not just the way he sounds now. Not bad by any means and I liked it more on the second listen, but...

Instruments sounded great, song will kill live and visuals all wonderful though.

To be honest, I thought Bono's voice sounded WAY better at my Sunday taping. Way, way better.

I honestly never pay much attention to what his voice sounds like pre album release and/or pre tour. Its almost like he needs to sing for two hours night after night for a few months to get his voice fully back in shape. It seems like he always has a little trouble in the beginning but blows it out of the water as time goes on.
