Purchased a standing ticket this morning on axs.com for tonight (makes a mockery of pre sales and all that fuss) as I have enjoyed the previous two shows i have seen so much.

Looking forward to 3rd and definitely final show!

After Bad, NYD and Gloria plus Patti Smith can't imagine there will be too much by way of surprises...

One has only closed 1 of 3 shows so far so would imagine that might very well be back tonight.

AOH and Desire probably stick ons for e-stage or maybe Volcano..

But you never know.

Bring it on.

5.30? Really? It was 6.30 last night I believe, and the various emails I've had say 6.30. Hope they're not on stage earlier? I need to rest my feet after last night's show before I head down there!

That's just what I have heard, probably false!

Last night was absolutely fantastic! Hope everyone going tonight has as good a time as I did last night - seeing my favourite band for the first time with thousands of other fans was absolutely surreal with Bad and NYD to top it all off. Wish I could make it again tonight but hopefully they will come around again soon!!!

Right - just leaving the house...quick ride into London Bridge pick up the tube to the o2 and then grab a pint. Head to the arena about 745 should be in for 8.

Are north side wristbands blue again tonight?

Just another spectacular show. The intensity of the band and the crowd during the last 3 shows is just off the chart. Electric Co., Desire and All I Want is You were great!

The circus rap by Bono was so cool and funny. How does he come up with this stuff?

P.S. The young women Bono selected tonight to come up- she was meant to wear jeans! Wow!

GA crowd are really pumped up this tour. Awesome atmosphere down the front, best I've ever known it. All of the band but especially Bono seem to be feeding off it. Whole arena looked buzzing too. The feeling they manage to create in a room ... just incredible.

Another good show tonight....not sure it was quite up with last night, but still good.

3 shows at the o2 for me and a good time had at all - u2 are still very much a live force.

Bono sounds strong - band tight and urgent.

I think Bono wanted to do more at the end returning to the mic twice and singing a snippet of hold me close don' t let me go.....shame they didn't impro an extra song.

Good atmosphere, funny screw up of start of EBW.

AIWIY was really good, a song I am not overly keen on came over great.

Bravo, lads - bravo.

To be fair to them didn't hear same set twice and they pulled out some surprises.....all i have advocated is not rotating the same songs in the same slots - which they at least partly didn't do...

North, I was between rz and catwalk, one row in  front of the people leaning on the rz barrier. I was amazed at how much space there was around me - other gigs I've done standing at I've often felt quite hemmed in.

Fear not - they do say you should never meet your heroes!  ;)

Fair point. Aprilshack loses her set list and I miss my chance to meet the King of @U2.

Oh by the way tonight absolutely cemented for me the opinion that queueing for a rail spot is actually a worse spot than just strolling in at 745....




Couldn't agree more. I loved my place in front of Red Zone and texted a friend at 7.50 to say I could have arrived then and still got a great spot in the same area.

North or south?....i stood about 5 yards from red  zone north side pretty much all gig - when it thinned out at the interval i could have literally stood against it if i wanted to
North, I was between rz and catwalk, one row in  front of the people leaning on the rz barrier. I was amazed at how much space there was around me - other gigs I've done standing at I've often felt quite hemmed in.

Ha....must have been standing almost right next to you....you weren't wearing glasses with shortish brown hair pumps and earphones were you?

I was the tallish fella, balding shaved hair with a hooped jumper on and a bit (ever growing) of a beer belly!

Hahah....think a good few will have another word or two for me!

It is so hard to try and meet up..probably should have made more of an effort to co-ordinate something sort of 'official' but everybody is doing there own thing and hard to do.

You all missed your chance of meeting me too.  I bit the bullet and decided to get a last minute ticket about 3.30pm.  Met some lovely people standing around me and had a great time but my ears are ringing.  Should've done the earplug thing.

I hope flare, aprilshack, shesarainbow, dono, welshgirl and father jack had similarly good times.  Can't believe father jack turned down the opportunity to get acquainted with welshgirl... he certainly does not live up to his craggy island alter ego.

I was there again tonight as I was yesterday. Another fantastic show and it's very difficult to separate them in terms of quality, but because of the brilliant setlist, night 3 wins.

Also, who'd have thought that seats behind the stage would be so good? Really close to the band and could still see the screen perfectly too! Good atmosphere there too, especially when Bono came round there.

Awww, I guess we all are really.  I'm just envious as if I had stood where you were I could've met Welshgirl myself  :(

Are you ears ringing too?  Are you tempted to go to another show?  I think 2 would have been enough for me, but the good thing about tonight is I went alone so I could stand where I wanted, etc. , so it was worth it.  I think I enjoyed the first 4 or 5 songs when they rocked out on the main stage.  Electric Co & I Will Follow was like watching them back in 1984 again - very special.

Yep, had a zipped hoody on till the end of Electric Co, was definitely me! Ordinarily I don't take much notice of people's footwear, but I was sitting on the floor till People Have The Power started, so I did see yours and were the guy in the blue looking jumper. There was another guy in stripes nearby and I wasn't sure which was you. Small world indeed!

I am obviously devastated that I missed the chance to meet you. ;-)

I came, I saw, they conquered.

I was way up in the Gods in Block 407.  I had a great view of the overall show and the screen (which was a revelation to see in person.)  I'd say it was that and they way they incorporated it into the themes of the show which elevates this show above Elevation - which was the last tour I saw U2 on.

My honest highlight of the night was Bullet the Blue Sky.  It was definitely worth bringing it back.

A lot of Bono's lecturing irked me a little but I've long learned to accept it's just the way he is.  Still it was a bit much and very obvious too.  And what's with all that name dropping?  I mean who cares what famous people were there when I was there?  Speaking of famous people, I looked around to see if I recognised any forumers but to no avail.

I'm taking a rest from U2 for the time being or until they release a new album.

I was there last night and really enjoyed it on the whole. A couple of songs lacked the energy I expected but others (All I want is you) were incredible. Does anyone record bootlegs of the shows? would really love to have one from last night to listen back to.

Cheers,

Did anybody notice Bono actually stopped his lecturing at one point near the end of the show, turned to the band and said something like "I've probably said too much, I'll stop now."

Ah well, end of an era, unless some of you are going to Belf or Dub. April, what do I do with your set list?

Sorry I didn't get back to you as I had a change of plans and didn't queue all day! I'll pm you with my address tomorrow.Let me know if you have PayPal so I can pay for postage. :)

I was there last night and really enjoyed it on the whole. A couple of songs lacked the energy I expected but others (All I want is you) were incredible. Does anyone record bootlegs of the shows? would really love to have one from last night to listen back to.

Cheers,
Andy

I thought it was an energetic show throughout, and especially the first numbers packed a classic rock 'n' roll punch.  Really did feel like seeing them in the 80s at times - perhaps because it was indoors as well as the choice of songs.  I thought all the band members, including Bono, looked much younger than they come across in photographs.  Maybe performing the songs knocks a few years off them.  You're right about All I Want is You - that seemed very emotional last night.

U2start normally has bootlegs of the shows: http://www.u2start.com/shows/#!audio  I am sure one will be there fairly soon.

Yeah I noticed that.  Didn't stop him continuing for another couple of minutes though, did it?

I think I marginally preferred Thursday, because of NYD (which I adore), Bad, and Patti Smith, but loved my first U2 GA experience on Friday, and being so close to the band,  and it was great to hear AIWIY which is another favourite of mine (and to see Bono without his sunglasses!).

One very minor disappointment is that Streets didn't seem quite "right" somehow (I think I've seen others mention similar?). On the 360 tour I saw 5 shows all from seats, and Streets was spine tingling and made me desperate to be down in GA for it. At the O2 it just didn't feel like that, even when I was in GA,  but can't put my finger on why.

Streets has lost something...the opening seems to have lost it's punch/ the timing - it does not provide the lift off it did...

Songs can go through stages like this though - look at Pride, it has sounded tired for a while but is a song reborn now

I have suggested before (and been heavily disagreed with) but it may be time to rest Streets.

Your comments, welshgirl aren't the first ones to say what you have said.

Glad you enjoyed both shows, WelshGirl!  Thursday setlist certainly does seem the most exciting, but  I personally love the version of One on this tour, so was glad to get that.  It's strange you didn't enjoy Streets so much as it was a highlight for me.  I've seen it very many times before both in GA and seats but last night was among my favourites, probably the most I've been moved by it since the 80s shows I saw.  The band seemed to be really enjoying playing it, too - the performance didn't sound at all jaded despite the song being nearly 30 years old now.

Oh by the way tonight absolutely cemented for me the opinion that queueing for a rail spot is actually a worse spot than just strolling in at 745....




Couldn't agree more. I loved my place in front of Red Zone and texted a friend at 7.50 to say I could have arrived then and still got a great spot in the same area.

North or south?....i stood about 5 yards from red  zone north side pretty much all gig - when it thinned out at the interval i could have literally stood against it if i wanted to
North, I was between rz and catwalk, one row in  front of the people leaning on the rz barrier. I was amazed at how much space there was around me - other gigs I've done standing at I've often felt quite hemmed in.

Ha....must have been standing almost right next to you....you weren't wearing glasses with shortish brown hair pumps and earphones were you?

I was the tallish fella, balding shaved hair with a hooped jumper on and a bit (ever growing) of a beer belly!
I have shortish brown hair and glasses, was wearing converses,  and not headphones but earplugs. I suspect that was indeed me! Was your hooped jumper blue?

I think it was - you....you had on a zippped hoody/tracky top type thing...

I literally stood at times 2-3 yards from you...but moved in a few yards as gig went on.

Jumper not blue, green and grey hoops - could look blue in light on there.

Trainers were blue with yellow stripes if you looked at anybodys feet!

Small world!

It's too late an tha... you missed your chance.  So disappointing for WelshGirl and all the rest of us who wanted to hear if you're as charming in person as you are on here  :P

Whereabouts were you stood?  I spent the evening with a scouser, a cockney and a British woman who had spent 10 years in New Zeland and seen U2 over there.  Top people.

Glad you had a good night.....my condolences to those people you mention  :)

About 5 yards in from the red zone box (catwalk side) on the north side

At least I had the decency to talk to the people I was with, I didn't act all grumpy and ignore them like you did with poor old Welshgirl  :P

I am shy, not grumpy!  ;)

Awww, I guess we all are really.  I'm just envious as if I had stood where you were I could've met Welshgirl myself  :(

Are you ears ringing too?  Are you tempted to go to another show?  I think 2 would have been enough for me, but the good thing about tonight is I went alone so I could stand where I wanted, etc. , so it was worth it.  I think I enjoyed the first 4 or 5 songs when they rocked out on the main stage.  Electric Co & I Will Follow was like watching them back in 1984 again - very special.

Never suffer with the ear ringing.....years working in a noisy factory when i was younger i think.

I am done now - last night was an extra show bought yesterday on the back of Thursday's show - it is so easy to get tickets! Note to everyone - don't go on stubhub etc....axs.com is the place, the official site for o2 gig tickets and standing tickets were bought on the day of the gig!

3 shows in a week - all good, u2 are reborn live for me, light years better than the flop i found them on 360.

Energy is good - they sound urgent, tight and firey.

They also look like they are loving it and Bono sounds strong - for a 2nd night running and 4th in 6 days last night he didn't sound tired or like he was struggling really....he whispered some of EBW, he is avoiding some of the more strenuous notes like the 'feeeeel' on vertigo, but overall he is singing well.

Yep U2 are in fine fettle and seem to be very much enjoying the o2 shows.  They seem confident, relaxed and performing the material with precisions and power.  Bravo boys indeed.

You're right about tickets.  I got mine about 3.30 yesterday afternoon.  Met a guy at the venue asking desperately for a ticket and told him to go to the box office and he'd get one.

How did people manage to get paper tickets for standing?  I saw a few people with them, apparently the Box Office issues them - anyone have any ideas how/why?

Also a bloke near me on the south side was dragged out by security towards the end of the show and I am totally perplexed as to what that was about.  They nearly dragged me out with him ("are you with him?" Me: "NO!").  Did anyone see that and know what was going on?

Odd, I was in Block 412 and 417 last night and 'Streets' was definitly the song that lifted the whole show into the stratosphere.

Your comments, welshgirl aren't the first ones to say what you have said.

It's interesting because I thought Streets was excellent and the crowd were very energised by it as always.  Plus I like it a little less overblown than it has been on pretty much every 00 tour.  Looks like we all agree that Pride was great.  I enjoyed every song, to be honest.  My only qualm is Sunday Bloody Sunday.  I can see it fits the narrative of the show very well, and is thus necessary, but the arrangement they are using doesn't quite work for me.

I wonder if maybe my expectations of Streets were too high? I've just listened to it at Wembley and Coimbra from 360 and vocally Bono sounded better at the O2 than he did back them. I would agree with An Tha that it's the intro that is missing something. A sense of urgency? Punchiness? Not sure. That said, I did still enjoy it, and certainly didn't hate it.

I completely agree with everyone about Pride, it was like a song reborn, loved it.

Wow! What a show. I took my 15 year old daughter for her first U2 concert and my sixth, and it was an incredible night. The opening four songs were like watching a punk band in a small club. The band were on incendiary form. Electric Co was sensational. We had Shine Like Stars, a full band Desire, All I Want Is you ... and as for Pride, a much maligned song these days, it took the roof off. There really is nothing like U2 live is there?

No. Nothing. Nothing at all.

They've gone to a whole new level this tour. Phenomenal.

Also a bloke near me on the south side was dragged out by security towards the end of the show and I am totally perplexed as to what that was about.  They nearly dragged me out with him ("are you with him?" Me: "NO!"). Did anyone see that and know what was going on?

If you mean close to the main stage, yeah ... I saw it.

The guy tried to muscle in to the rail about half way through the show. The diehards at the front, who'd been queuing since first thing weren't happy! A couple of them seemed very pally with U2's own security & asked for him to be removed. Yeah, really ... I guess it's not what you know!
[/quote]

I didn't see him doing that.  He just stood there bouncing up and down a bit, taking some videos and photos on his phone.  Maybe at one point he tried to put one of his hands on the rail to give himself support?  There was loads of space around him and I didn't see him bothering anybody, but I wasn't in front of him so maybe he was getting at people there.  To get dragged out seemed excessive.  They could have just had a word with him and if he carried on doing whatever was considered objectionable dragged him out then.

Oh by the way tonight absolutely cemented for me the opinion that queueing for a rail spot is actually a worse spot than just strolling in at 745....




Couldn't agree more. I loved my place in front of Red Zone and texted a friend at 7.50 to say I could have arrived then and still got a great spot in the same area.

North or south?....i stood about 5 yards from red  zone north side pretty much all gig - when it thinned out at the interval i could have literally stood against it if i wanted to
North, I was between rz and catwalk, one row in  front of the people leaning on the rz barrier. I was amazed at how much space there was around me - other gigs I've done standing at I've often felt quite hemmed in.

Ha....must have been standing almost right next to you....you weren't wearing glasses with shortish brown hair pumps and earphones were you?

I was the tallish fella, balding shaved hair with a hooped jumper on and a bit (ever growing) of a beer belly!
I have shortish brown hair and glasses, was wearing converses,  and not headphones but earplugs. I suspect that was indeed me! Was your hooped jumper blue?

I think it was - you....you had on a zippped hoody/tracky top type thing...

I literally stood at times 2-3 yards from you...but moved in a few yards as gig went on.

Jumper not blue, green and grey hoops - could look blue in light on there.

Trainers were blue with yellow stripes if you looked at anybodys feet!

Small world!

It's too late an tha... you missed your chance.  So disappointing for WelshGirl and all the rest of us who wanted to hear if you're as charming in person as you are on here  :P

Whereabouts were you stood?  I spent the evening with a scouser, a cockney and a British woman who had spent 10 years in New Zeland and seen U2 over there.  Top people.

Glad you had a good night.....my condolences to those people you mention  :)

About 5 yards in from the red zone box (catwalk side) on the north side

At least I had the decency to talk to the people I was with, I didn't act all grumpy and ignore them like you did with poor old Welshgirl  :P

I am shy, not grumpy!  ;)

Awww, I guess we all are really.  I'm just envious as if I had stood where you were I could've met Welshgirl myself  :(

Are you ears ringing too?  Are you tempted to go to another show?  I think 2 would have been enough for me, but the good thing about tonight is I went alone so I could stand where I wanted, etc. , so it was worth it.  I think I enjoyed the first 4 or 5 songs when they rocked out on the main stage.  Electric Co & I Will Follow was like watching them back in 1984 again - very special.

Never suffer with the ear ringing.....years working in a noisy factory when i was younger i think.

I am done now - last night was an extra show bought yesterday on the back of Thursday's show - it is so easy to get tickets! Note to everyone - don't go on stubhub etc....axs.com is the place, the official site for o2 gig tickets and standing tickets were bought on the day of the gig!

3 shows in a week - all good, u2 are reborn live for me, light years better than the flop i found them on 360.

Energy is good - they sound urgent, tight and firey.

They also look like they are loving it and Bono sounds strong - for a 2nd night running and 4th in 6 days last night he didn't sound tired or like he was struggling really....he whispered some of EBW, he is avoiding some of the more strenuous notes like the 'feeeeel' on vertigo, but overall he is singing well.

Yep U2 are in fine fettle and seem to be very much enjoying the o2 shows.  They seem confident, relaxed and performing the material with precisions and power.  Bravo boys indeed.

You're right about tickets.  I got mine about 3.30 yesterday afternoon.  Met a guy at the venue asking desperately for a ticket and told him to go to the box office and he'd get one.

How did people manage to get paper tickets for standing?  I saw a few people with them, apparently the Box Office issues them - anyone have any ideas how/why?

Also a bloke near me on the south side was dragged out by security towards the end of the show and I am totally perplexed as to what that was about.  They nearly dragged me out with him ("are you with him?" Me: "NO!"). Did anyone see that and know what was going on?

If you mean close to the main stage, yeah ... I saw it.

I can understand them being cranky - queueing for days and having one of the worst views of the show overall would put anybody in a narky mood...

Don't be such a sourpuss :P  They were having a great time, they just wanted yards of space to themselves to have it in  :)

Glad you both enjoyed it....

On 'shine like stars' i honestly felt it coming...you could tell bono was really enjoying it and buzzing and i just sensed it...

As he walked up the centre walk way I thought 'go on then, lad shine like stars' and then as he belted it out i openly admit to standing both hands held aloft head back and belting it out as loud as i could as well....

I know what you mean about those first 4 songs.  It is not what I'd desecribe as punk but it was intense, energetic and accomplished rock music. As I stood there watching them belt out Electric Co and IWF it felt as if I was in 1984 seeing them perform the same songs at the Brixton Academy.   Was simply brilliant.

I went Thursday and Friday and have to say, I think the Thursday show just edged it, firstly because it was 6 years since I saw them at Wembley Stadium and so I was thrilled to hear them play again after such a gap (and I while I was in row K of block 111 on Thursday, it was still a lot closer than where I was sat in Wembley, and the whole in the round thing seemed to work a whole lot better) and as the show was fresh to me, stuff like Sunday Bloody Sunday, October and Bullet The Blue Sky, what with the film show had a deeper emotional effect on me (although I had a prize eejit next to me who insisted on doing some dodgy grandad dancing all the way through SBS, even through the bit with the bomb effects going off) and I got to hear NYD and Bad, too of my all time favourites. 

Was standing yesterday (about 10 feet away from the little stage) and while we got Desire and All I Want Is You (amongst others), the amount of p***ed up idiots near me took some of the shine off things, there were two cockneys (I won't say the exact term that came to mind yesterday) who thought it was hilarious to have a 'Cor Blimey Guvnor' singsong at full blast before the show started, and an Irish fella who started crying when Bono climbed on stage before leaping about, singing along (badly) and throwing his arms out air drumming in all directions, although I think the excitement must have got too much for them after half an hour or so of the show as they disappeared (I'm guessing to find the bar), there were also a load of plonkers shouting out 'BONO!' at the beginning of October, to which he just gave a 'shhhh!' to - I was hoping he wasn't thinking it was me. OK so it was a Friday, but I can't see the logic in spending a lot of money on tickets for a show and then just getting hammered and making a fool of yourself in front of hundreds of other people. All I Want Is you lost a lot of its charm by Bono's vocals being drowned out by people singing it out of tune and louder than he was doing with a microphone.

Other than that, great stuff, the band were on fire. I'm grateful that Monday and Tuesday's standing tickets have all gone now, at least my bank account can recover, and I can get a good nights sleep (it seemed a good idea to get the boat to Thursday's show, didn't seem such a great idea when I didn't get home until a quarter past one, wasn't much better with the tube yesterday, getting home at half twelve)

Ha ha, I got back to Birmingham at 3:30 ... not that it's a competition but it might make you feel better!

I was very lucky, had a really great crowd around me. It's so hit & miss as to who you end up next to, can change the whole vibe of the gig unfortunately.

Was standing yesterday (about 10 feet away from the little stage) and while we got Desire and All I Want Is You (amongst others), the amount of p***ed up idiots near me took some of the shine off things, there were two cockneys (I won't say the exact term that came to mind yesterday) who thought it was hilarious to have a 'Cor Blimey Guvnor' singsong at full blast before the show started, and an Irish fella who started crying when Bono climbed on stage before leaping about, singing along (badly) and throwing his arms out air drumming in all directions, although I think the excitement must have got too much for them after half an hour or so of the show as they disappeared (I'm guessing to find the bar), there were also a load of plonkers shouting out 'BONO!' at the beginning of October, to which he just gave a 'shhhh!' to - I was hoping he wasn't thinking it was me. OK so it was a Friday, but I can't see the logic in spending a lot of money on tickets for a show and then just getting hammered and making a fool of yourself in front of hundreds of other people. All I Want Is you lost a lot of its charm by Bono's vocals being drowned out by people singing it out of tune and louder than he was doing with a microphone.

Other than that, great stuff, the band were on fire. I'm grateful that Monday and Tuesday's standing tickets have all gone now, at least my bank account can recover, and I can get a good nights sleep (it seemed a good idea to get the boat to Thursday's show, didn't seem such a great idea when I didn't get home until a quarter past one, wasn't much better with the tube yesterday, getting home at half twelve)

Ha ha, I got back to Birmingham at 3:30 ... not that it's a competition but it might make you feel better!

I was very lucky, had a really great crowd around me. It's so hit & miss as to who you end up next to, can change the whole vibe of the gig unfortunately.

I think you were near me if you saw the guy who was dragged out?  The crowd was good there indeed, apart from what happened to that poor bloke.

Was the guy who was dragged off bald with a beautiful beige jacket on?

That was him!  Where were you?


Had my back to the red zone.He was two people in front of me & gave off the I'm a d**k vibe. He ended up further & further to the front as the show went on.

Was the red zone near the front then?  He was in the 2nd row, by the rail, I think.  He was heavy but I didn't see him pushing people out the way to make his way forward.  There was a young American woman who turned up late and edged her way into row 2 too.  Noone did anything to her.

What do people in the red zone actually get (i realise the ticket money goes to charity) but aren't they really expensive and from what i could see they just get a spec that is a couple of inches raised off the floor in a cage.

I guess red zone attendees are financially loaded and enjoy getting to spend time around famous people also in the cage.  Don't they also get their photo taken on stage before the band starts?

Yes, either side of the stage but a little bit back from the catwalk. The bald guy was drunk, perhaps the American woman wasn't & was less annoying? But no, it's wrong to try to get a rail spot just before the gig. A drunk guy tried to make out he knew me at a Foo fighters gig in Manchester a few weeks ago. Put his hand on the rail. When the gig had already started. I had queued up since 8am. I gave his hand a smack & he soon moved it.He was a tosser & nearly got kicked out by security until he slithered off. I'm not queuing all day at any gig for some self entitled, I can do what I want attitude guy or girl to push in.

You're quite right, it's wrong for people to push in at the last minute and annoy others around them.  Had 3 beery guys do it to my at U2 360 and it marred my evening.  I argued for them to move on but they were like "no, we'll stand where we like" before laughing at the fact I had queued and they had turned up 10 minutes before showtime and bought wristbands off somebody.  Lost count of how many times they jumped up and down and landed on my feet.  At least the American woman last night was civil and careful in how she tried to edge her way around people to get close to the front.  Also she was not tall which helped. 

I meant to ask, could you see okay last night?  You said you're fairly short so I hope it wasn't a struggle?  Were you on the rail in front of the red zone?  Some guys outside who'd been to about 10 shows on the tour said that was the best place to be.  What time did you queue from?

The 5000th post from an tha, and another grumpy one  :)   I think it's time someone started an an tha appreciation thread!

I guess red zone attendees are financially loaded and enjoy getting to spend time around famous people also in the cage.  Don't they also get their photo taken on stage before the band starts?

Haha.... 5000 posts! Never has so little been said in so many posts.

I could have saved my thumbs and hours of phone battery by just making a handful of posts....

00's u2 is bad
90's u2 is boss
Pop is great
Behind and Bomb are crap

Everything else is just a variation on those themes....but then you came along and changed everything  ;)

God loves a trier... joking aside that is bad news.

Better in the old days when it would be scribbled in eyeliner pencil on a beer mat or on your arm...many an hour i spent trying to decide what a smudged number was - "hello is lisa there" " nobody called lisa here mate" "ah sorry, lad wrong number".....and so on...

True!  I remember the old days of "is that a 9 or a 4 or a 2?" confusion.  I changed the battery in my phone today and that's maybe why all my notes have gone.  She enjoyed the concert and was thinking of going again next week.  I told her I'd send my number in case that is so, and I was meant to email her some photos of the gig to show her friends too.  Ah well.

Wow! What a show. I took my 15 year old daughter for her first U2 concert and my sixth, and it was an incredible night. The opening four songs were like watching a punk band in a small club. the band were on incendiary form. Electric Co was sensational. We had Shine Like Stars, a full band Desire, All I Want Is you ... and as for Pride, a much maligned song these days, it took the roof off. There really is nothing like U2 live is there?

Glad you both enjoyed it....

On 'shine like stars' i honestly felt it coming...you could tell bono was really enjoying it and buzzing and i just sensed it...

As he walked up the centre walk way I thought 'go on then, lad shine like stars' and then as he belted it out i openly admit to standing both hands held aloft head back and belting it out as loud as i could as well....


I know what you mean - Bono mentioned one or two times what a "special feeling" there was. This usually means they end up doing something "different" like playing something that isn't on the set list. I hadn't been to or seen the set list for Thursday so wondered if we might be lucky and they'd throw in an unplanned "Bad". When they got to the end of With or Without You though, you are right, Bono seemed to be readying himself to launch in to the Shine Like Stars and yes, like you, I willed him to in my head and then was on my feet, arms aloft and swept away. I think it had even more emotional wallop for me this time as I'd taken my daughter and introduced her to this wonderful band of ours. It has had a huge effect on her ...

I went Thursday and Friday and have to say, I think the Thursday show just edged it, firstly because it was 6 years since I saw them at Wembley Stadium and so I was thrilled to hear them play again after such a gap (and I while I was in row K of block 111 on Thursday, it was still a lot closer than where I was sat in Wembley, and the whole in the round thing seemed to work a whole lot better) and as the show was fresh to me, stuff like Sunday Bloody Sunday, October and Bullet The Blue Sky, what with the film show had a deeper emotional effect on me (although I had a prize eejit next to me who insisted on doing some dodgy grandad dancing all the way through SBS, even through the bit with the bomb effects going off) and I got to hear NYD and Bad, too of my all time favourites. 

Was standing yesterday (about 10 feet away from the little stage) and while we got Desire and All I Want Is You (amongst others), the amount of p***ed up idiots near me took some of the shine off things, there were two cockneys (I won't say the exact term that came to mind yesterday) who thought it was hilarious to have a 'Cor Blimey Guvnor' singsong at full blast before the show started, and an Irish fella who started crying when Bono climbed on stage before leaping about, singing along (badly) and throwing his arms out air drumming in all directions, although I think the excitement must have got too much for them after half an hour or so of the show as they disappeared (I'm guessing to find the bar), there were also a load of plonkers shouting out 'BONO!' at the beginning of October, to which he just gave a 'shhhh!' to - I was hoping he wasn't thinking it was me. OK so it was a Friday, but I can't see the logic in spending a lot of money on tickets for a show and then just getting hammered and making a fool of yourself in front of hundreds of other people. All I Want Is you lost a lot of its charm by Bono's vocals being drowned out by people singing it out of tune and louder than he was doing with a microphone.

Other than that, great stuff, the band were on fire. I'm grateful that Monday and Tuesday's standing tickets have all gone now, at least my bank account can recover, and I can get a good nights sleep (it seemed a good idea to get the boat to Thursday's show, didn't seem such a great idea when I didn't get home until a quarter past one, wasn't much better with the tube yesterday, getting home at half twelve)

Ha ha, I got back to Birmingham at 3:30 ... not that it's a competition but it might make you feel better!

I was very lucky, had a really great crowd around me. It's so hit & miss as to who you end up next to, can change the whole vibe of the gig unfortunately.

I think you were near me if you saw the guy who was dragged out?  The crowd was good there indeed, apart from what happened to that poor bloke.

Was the guy who was dragged off bald with a beautiful beige jacket on?

That was him!  Where were you?


Had my back to the red zone.He was two people in front of me & gave off the I'm a d**k vibe. He ended up further & further to the front as the show went on.

Was the red zone near the front then?  He was in the 2nd row, by the rail, I think.  He was heavy but I didn't see him pushing people out the way to make his way forward.  There was a young American woman who turned up late and edged her way into row 2 too.  Noone did anything to her.

Yes, either side of the stage but a little bit back from the catwalk. The bald guy was drunk, perhaps the American woman wasn't & was less annoying? But no, it's wrong to try to get a rail spot just before the gig. A drunk guy tried to make out he knew me at a Foo fighters gig in Manchester a few weeks ago. Put his hand on the rail. When the gig had already started. I had queued up since 8am. I gave his hand a smack & he soon moved it.He was a tosser & nearly got kicked out by security until he slithered off. I'm not queuing all day at any gig for some self entitled, I can do what I want attitude guy or girl to push in.

You're quite right, it's wrong for people to push in at the last minute and annoy others around them.  Had 3 beery guys do it to my at U2 360 and it marred my evening.  I argued for them to move on but they were like "no, we'll stand where we like" before laughing at the fact I had queued and they had turned up 10 minutes before showtime and bought wristbands off somebody.  Lost count of how many times they jumped up and down and landed on my feet.  At least the American woman last night was civil and careful in how she tried to edge her way around people to get close to the front.  Also she was not tall which helped. 

I meant to ask, could you see okay last night?  You said you're fairly short so I hope it wasn't a struggle?  Were you on the rail in front of the red zone?  Some guys outside who'd been to about 10 shows on the tour said that was the best place to be.  What time did you queue from? 

Yes, i was on the rail of the red zone.I could see very little when the action was on the E stage, but fine on most of the catwalk & the I stage.It was quite packed where i was so if i wanted to move around i wouldn't of been able to and follow the band up and down if i wanted to do that. I started queuing about 4.30.

Tell you whats funny is it sounds like there was alot of us in the O2 on night 3 & 4 & non of us know what each other looks like !! I think we should of had our names on a sticker stuck to our t-shirts & we could of high fived each other when we walked past ;-)

Good idea but trolls don't wear name badges!  I.e. if an tha had been wearing one he'd have got quite a few punches from the rest of us for his perennial negative U2 comments  :)

I went Thursday and Friday and have to say, I think the Thursday show just edged it, firstly because it was 6 years since I saw them at Wembley Stadium and so I was thrilled to hear them play again after such a gap (and I while I was in row K of block 111 on Thursday, it was still a lot closer than where I was sat in Wembley, and the whole in the round thing seemed to work a whole lot better) and as the show was fresh to me, stuff like Sunday Bloody Sunday, October and Bullet The Blue Sky, what with the film show had a deeper emotional effect on me (although I had a prize eejit next to me who insisted on doing some dodgy grandad dancing all the way through SBS, even through the bit with the bomb effects going off) and I got to hear NYD and Bad, too of my all time favourites. 

Was standing yesterday (about 10 feet away from the little stage) and while we got Desire and All I Want Is You (amongst others), the amount of p***ed up idiots near me took some of the shine off things, there were two cockneys (I won't say the exact term that came to mind yesterday) who thought it was hilarious to have a 'Cor Blimey Guvnor' singsong at full blast before the show started, and an Irish fella who started crying when Bono climbed on stage before leaping about, singing along (badly) and throwing his arms out air drumming in all directions, although I think the excitement must have got too much for them after half an hour or so of the show as they disappeared (I'm guessing to find the bar), there were also a load of plonkers shouting out 'BONO!' at the beginning of October, to which he just gave a 'shhhh!' to - I was hoping he wasn't thinking it was me. OK so it was a Friday, but I can't see the logic in spending a lot of money on tickets for a show and then just getting hammered and making a fool of yourself in front of hundreds of other people. All I Want Is you lost a lot of its charm by Bono's vocals being drowned out by people singing it out of tune and louder than he was doing with a microphone.

Other than that, great stuff, the band were on fire. I'm grateful that Monday and Tuesday's standing tickets have all gone now, at least my bank account can recover, and I can get a good nights sleep (it seemed a good idea to get the boat to Thursday's show, didn't seem such a great idea when I didn't get home until a quarter past one, wasn't much better with the tube yesterday, getting home at half twelve)

I stood near that rail too and yes it was pretty crowded, but civilised.  The band seemed a very long way away when they were on the E stage.  But it was great to be close to the action when they rocked out on the main stage.  Could you see much of the screen action from where you where?

3.30... I thought getting back to Brum at 2.45 was late!

Try 6.15am after London 1 as I had this insane idea of driving back to Scotland #neveragain

Wow, driving back to Brum was bad enough. #respect

Honestly, having been I think seeing one show is enough.  Perhaps I think that because I'd seen a fair bit of the tour on youtube.  No doubt two gives you the chance to embrace all the things you may have not seen at the first show, but going to 3 I feel is a bit extravagant.   I blame an tha for brainwashing me into purchasing a ticket for a 3rd show.  Don't do it kids!

Wow! What a show. I took my 15 year old daughter for her first U2 concert and my sixth, and it was an incredible night. The opening four songs were like watching a punk band in a small club. the band were on incendiary form. Electric Co was sensational. We had Shine Like Stars, a full band Desire, All I Want Is you ... and as for Pride, a much maligned song these days, it took the roof off. There really is nothing like U2 live is there?

Glad you both enjoyed it....

On 'shine like stars' i honestly felt it coming...you could tell bono was really enjoying it and buzzing and i just sensed it...

As he walked up the centre walk way I thought 'go on then, lad shine like stars' and then as he belted it out i openly admit to standing both hands held aloft head back and belting it out as loud as i could as well....

There was a woman in the front row with a "please sing shine like stars" banner, and at the end of the gig Bono gave her a big proud smile, after which she excitedly hugged her partner.  Was a nice moment.

Might be worth ringing the box office at the venue as well....

Well Friday night was the best night ever! I got so close to the E stage there was so much room to move even when the place was full, take me back!

Post by: an tha on November 02, 2015, 06:37:13 AM
I think the so much room thing whilst definitely true may have been more evident on the north side
...reason being they closed the bars on that side about 8pm and if you wanted a drink you had to go to the south side - the reason i was given was they had to get that side 'sterile' for the show opening as bono would be entering from down there....

I think they did this too early as one of the people there said to me 'we have been told it is starting in a moment'.... this was at 8 - i said to him, 'it won't be until 830, pal' The bar staff were standing doing nothing whilst the south side was mobbed including the smaller mobile bars...

I get the feeling people once queueing over the south side decided to stay or were not let back across - creating additional room on the north side (even though it is roomy anyway) I went south side the previous night and it was roomy but not as roomy as it was on the north side on Friday.

I went South Side because I prefer watching the Edge to Adam.  Also the people I met outside wanted to go there, so to be sociable I went where they wanted to go.  The French guys had been to about 10 shows each on this tour, and seemed to know where best to watch the show from.  Will be getting there much later tonight (8ish) but hope I won't be too late to get a spot in front of the red zone on the South Side.

Says spoilers in title and it is easy enough to not read the thread, isn't it?

The title also mentions *Setlist*

Between 24-34 people are keeping track of the thread during the show.

I do it for the people that are unable to listen to the show, but can do a quick sneak in the forum.
The song in the thread is pure for the time they started, first thread for final check.
So I like to do it, and there are apparently people wanting it.

I remember this conversation back in 2005 too, there is need.

Do we really need this thread with every song posted as it happens,the set list is  only beneficial to the people at the gig ,all this live reports is really ruining the surprise for anyone going to a show, it's one of the worst sides of the social media revolution everyone's a journalist and trivial facts  are headlines .

Says spoilers in title and it is easy enough to not read the thread, isn't it?

The title also mentions *Setlist*

Between 24-34 people are keeping track of the thread during the show.

I do it for the people that are unable to listen to the show, but can do a quick sneak in the forum.
The song in the thread is pure for the time they started, first thread for final check.
So I like to do it, and there are apparently people wanting it.

I remember this conversation back in 2005 too, there is need.

I attended this show, not attending any others but enjoy following what differences there are each night. It's clear in the title about spoilers & if someone doesn't feel it's beneficial why bother complaining about it? Just don't bother reading or replying in that thread....
