Hi Everybody!


I don't know if you've already seen or heard it, but Inhaler have released their first single and I think it's good anf especially because it reminds me of the early days of U2; you can definitely hear that Elijah is Bono's son.

News and Rumors / Re: Rumour: Southern Hemisphere 2019 tour
« Last post by summerholly on April 18, 2019, 10:09:02 AM »
Dont really care about statistics or chord progressions, my ears and mind like songs off Rattle and Hum, that is all I care about.  I still really enjoy Angel of Harlem and All I want is you among others.  Would like to see them played if they ever come to Oz.  Maybe they come maybe they don't who knows.  Not overly expecting it.

General U2 Discussion / Experience + Innocence Tour Video
« Last post by zooshoes on April 18, 2019, 05:35:16 AM »
Does anyone know if there are plans to release a video of the Experience + Innocence Tour? It's the first tour since forever they haven't done so. I really want one and am keeping my fingers crossed.

A friend from way back is on vacation in Dublin and she emailed me this article from yesterday's Irish Times about 1982 concert footage being released. Clip is of An Cat Dubh--awesome!

The secret concert in Dublin, July 17, 1982. So secret its rarely ever been mentioned before, even in books about the band. I'd like to get the official address where they played on sheriff Street to see what the area looks like now.


So I guess the whole show will eventually be available online which is great.

Just to add a little more about the success of Rattle And Hum over Joshua Tree in Australia, lets take a look at how the singles from each album did in Australia:

Joshua Tree:
With Or Without You: peaked at #9
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For: peaked at #17
Where The Streets Have No Name: did NOT make the top 20
In God's Country: did NOT make the top 20

Rattle And Hum:
Desire: peaked at #1
Angel Of Harlem: peaked at #18
When Love Comes To Town: peaked at #23
All I Want Is You: peaked at #2

               So this is another area that shows the Rattle And Hum album clearly beating Joshua Tree in Australia.

You guys are debating two entirely different things.  Album sales do not prove an album was “good”, only that it was popular.  Likewise, positive or negative critical opinions don’t prove that an album was popular or unpopular.  You both just keep repeating your cases, neither of which are linked one to the other.

Actually that is incorrect. Billy made claims about Rattle And Hum's sales in both Australia and the United States that were factually incorrect. I corrected those claims with factual sales data in both countries, as well as Album Chart data from Australia for both Joshua Tree and Rattle And Hum. Billy disputes the fact that Rattle And Hum is U2's biggest selling album in Australia. I've provided overwhelming evidence that it is in fact U2's best selling album in Australia.

I've never made any serious claims about the quality of Rattle And Hum vs any other U2 albums. My point has been demonstrate how special Rattle And Hum and the Love Town Tour both were to Australia. The sales data indicates that the album is rather special in Australia, more so than it was anywhere else. This increases the likely hood that a tour, if it happens, at the end of 2019 in Australia, will likely emphasize the Rattle And Hum/Love Town Tour phase of U2's career from 30 years ago.

Again, were talking about a tour here and where U2 would tour and what might be emphasized on the tour. U2's album sales in Australia are very relevant to if they will tour and how they will tour Australia.

What I or Billy thinks about the Rattle And Hum album in terms of how original it is and the quality of it is completely irrelevant to whether U2 will do a tour later in the year that has a setlist with emphasis towards songs from Rattle And Hum.

I appreciate the reply! And you're right! My hope is over time, the community will leave feedback and influence changes in "The List."
