News and Rumors / Re: Rumour: Southern Hemisphere 2019 tour

So, the question begs, are the queue starters starting now? :)

At the U2 gigs in Dublin last November, there was a bunch of people doing the American style queue up. This was the second time I've seen it in Dublin (first was JT30 in Dublin in 2017) - queuing up for a week. The "locals" like myself strolled in 30 minutes before the gig started, and guess what? for both JT30 and E&I in Dublin, I walked in, and there was a light line of one person between me and the stage. Asleep in my warm bed for the previous week and wide awake for the gig.

As with most "collect-ables", their worth is only as much as anyone will pay.

I am interested in finding one of these.

That new TALK U2 forum has a lot of people that used to post in here. I think that split has really had the biggest impact on this forum over the past year or two. There are only so many U2 fans with an interest to read and post on message boards these days. This is not an ideal time to be starting up new U2 message boards. There would be a lot more traffic if the message boards all combined into just one message board.

Pretty much this, although it has to be noted that a lot of discussions are more about forcing opinions onto one another than actually discussing the merits of each other's points, this made things quite toxic and very repetative. I'm quite happy for the break from "This is the problem with U2 since Pop" threads  :D

Haha this cracks me up because it is the reason I left the Wire in the first place. So essentially nothing changed since 2002? 😂

Does anyone remember J? He used to write essays about this...

Meh, it still kinda sucks. "Love is All We Have Left" is good, "Summer of Love" and" Red Flag Day" are pretty great and "13" is heartfelt. Thats about it though. I still prefer SOI.

I like SOI too - but currently SOE weirdly keeps sucking me in

Indeed and even that forum has had its issues - the thing with forums is about trying to create the right environment - it had got so toxic here (even with bans) we shut down for a bit. People went elsewhere which is their prerogative.
