Does the band visit this forum?

At the show in Vancouver on October 28th Fegie from the BEP said that it's hard to tour and that everyone's been talking crap about her on the internet. Then there's the set list for the tour. Bringing back Bad, Ultraviolet and Unforgetable Fire were at the top of many people on this forum. Judging by people's reaction on this forum to these aditions it was greatly appreciated. Do you think the band reads this forum then? If not then what was Fergie talking about? Anyone else there at the Vancouver show and remember that?

Most of the people here were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the BEP as an opener. The internet is pretty big, I'm sure there are many other websites where she may have gotten crap talked about her.

Definitely seems like the band, or some of the folks at Principle Management, lurk here at least once in a while. I think every big band keeps tabs on their online fanbase these days. Ultraviolet's and Unforgettable Fire's returns may have been coincidence, but who knows? Edge seems pretty web savvy, and Bono writes lyrics about Mac commands (force quit! move to trash!) and U2 has more fansites than any other band. It only makes sense that they check out what's going on here. Though I'm sure they joke about how nerdy our threads are ("what's the 4th best song on October?" etc. lol)

Actually I was thinking of some of the threads in EYKIW and the tour forums.

what intrigues me the most is how the members of this forum that constantly bash U2 over and over would act if they actually met a band member. they'd probably act like a little groupie.

Bono often masturbates to pictures posted in PLEBA.

Nope, don't think they do. Can't imagine why they'd want to.

I have a feeling Ultraviolet and TUF were resurrected because there was a news article on U2.com back in May or so essentially asking for requests to be posted in the comments... and surprise, surprise, TUF and Ultraviolet were extremely common requests. See: U2.com > News > It's Less Than A Month

There's also the fact that those a generally very highly-regarded songs that fit beautifully into the show.

That being said, I'm almost sure they or their associates lurk here, at least occasionally. Sicy said that Rocko, U2's stage manager, has an account and lurks around, for instance.
