General U2 Discussion / Re: When Will the Next U2 Album Be Released (Poll)
« Last post by 73October on August 20, 2019, 06:23:05 AM »
Maybe I was being slightly overoptimistic with late 2021?

They've had a well-needed break and are soon extending the Joshua Tree anniversary tour to Australia/NZ and Asia which will see out 2019. Rehearsals will start maybe in September, I imagine followed by stage rehearsals later October onwards.

I have read that the plan in 2020 is to work on a new album.  SOA, Rubin and anything else going back around 10 years or so is scrapped now.  Adam did say on a radio interview that there was no plans (in 2017) to use any of the left overs from SOI & SOE. 
In the same article I read about working on an album in 2020 (U2Songs), I also read that Bono wants a 'balls to the wall' rock album.

So we need to see when the musical consensus occurs and how long that will take (!).  Then to rehearse and record new material and finally release it could be as early as late 2021.  I said that because their workrate has picked up over the last 5 years since the recording and release of SOI in 2014.  Having said that, it could get pushed back to 2022.  That would be 5 years since the previous new release.

Tours / Re: Types of gigs you wish U2 would do...

Simulcast every gig live on U2.com for paying members, $5 each, most of the proceeds going to One/RED, the rest going to Larry's botox treatments.

My expectation would be t-shirt merchandise or do they also sell albums? I would like to complete my collection.

By the way, this will be my first experience of their tour and the band's first concert in the Philippines. "I can't wait any longer"  :)

Generally clothing - I don't think I've ever seen albums etc

I think it would be better to purchase music off of U2.com personally.

Thank you for this song. I have read the lyrics and will listen to the song. (I was afraid there might be a 'new' song or two that addressed or spoke about some of these topics.) Thank you very much once again.

~ Write a song about the need to set aside our technology and find peace and meaning in our fellow man and within life itself.


~ Write a song about John the Baptist who needed to humbly ‘reduce’ himself in order that God’s own purpose may be fulfilled on earth. (Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall but You go on ~ ‘October.’)

Are you familiar with “Falling at Your Feet”? It touches on exactly the themes you are talking about here:

All the information
All the big ideas
All the radio waves
On electronic seas
How to navigate
How to simply be
To know when to wait
On plain simplicity
In whom shall I trust
And how might I be still
Teach me to surrender
Not my will, thy will

Also, they wrote Salome about John the Baptist.  May not be the kind of song you had in mind but thought I would mention it.

General U2 Discussion / Sunday Thoughts on U2.

 I first discovered U2 listening to a song from War on the radio when I was seventeen. I saw them when they came to Detroit and loved their first four records. Following ‘The Unforgettable Fire’  I generally did not listen to their music as much although I have always sincerely appreciated the song “One’ very much. I think that the band has accomplished a great deal and done as well a great deal of good for the world and in particular for Africa. If I could humbly offer a few (actually several :) suggestions to U2 these would be some of them. (Thank you for reading all of this.)
~ Write songs with nature within them once again. (I always appreciated ‘October,’ ‘Shadows and Tall Trees,’ ‘A Sort of Homecoming,’ ‘Promenade,’ ‘Indian Summer Sky.’)
~ Establish a fundraising concert with many other international musicians and bands in order to raise awareness of and to reduce global warming.
~ Write songs about the need to be full of love and compassion for the people beside us including ‘the least of these.’ (Be my brother/There is no other way out of here. ~ ‘I Threw a Brick Through a Window.’)
~ Write a song about Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador and his faith and reconciliation of all peoples.
~ Write a song about the necessity of following one’s heart and conscience wherever it leads including hardships, difficulties and misunderstandings. (I can’t change the world but I can change the world in me ~ ‘Rejoice.’)
~ Write a song about the need to set aside our technology and find peace and meaning in our fellow man and within life itself.
~ Write a song about John the Baptist who needed to humbly ‘reduce’ himself in order that God’s own purpose may be fulfilled on earth. (Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall but You go on ~ ‘October.’)
~ Write a song about Mother Teresa and her wisdom including the fact that ‘every act of love is an act of peace.’
~ Write songs of the brotherhood of man as John Coltrane wrote and performed.
~ Write a song (perhaps with some traditional instruments) about the natural state of Ireland and how it needs to be preserved and reclaimed again.
~ Write a song in honor of Seamus Heaney the fine poet of nature and peace and compassion.
~ Write a new song about how we often find truth and grace within our lives through our own weakness and failures (this has certainly been true for me!).
~ Write about the blessings of genuine love and caring and friendship including within our own families.
~ These are just a few suggestions of mine. Have a fine and peaceful day Everyone. :)
