Considering they will be playing stadiums in what could be dodgy conditions, that could be a problem.

Of course, Bono always sounds best quite a bit into the tour.

Once again, thank you!!

You don't happen to have an mp3 of Breathe from the day before (one without Dave talking at the start and end)?
I took the audio off the youtube link but I don't know how to cut it

what I found interesting was how Bono's voice really surged in the last 45 secs on the performance. Like, stopped being kinda iffy and started belting that shit. Maybe he just needs to get down to business a little quicker.

I think he always lacks confidence when it's new and he barely has the lyrics down let alone how to sing them.


"A voice shot through with self doubt" I think Springsteen said best.

I cant belive he is pretty much remembering all the lyrics ,

and personally thought he sounded quite good, rough in some places but overall pretty great imo.

I don't like the falsetto bits right before Edge's solo. Bono did that on BBC and on Letterman. If I were Bono's best friend, here's what I'd say: If you can't hit that one single note every live performance, who cares Bono? Get over it. Don't try. It makes the studio version that much better. You modified some high notes for COBL, and it worked beautifully. It's like you can't let it go. Let it go, and move out of the way so Edge take the stage for a second and have a true solo. Your attempts to hit that one note take away from Edge's solo. Let it go.

Another 5 star performance in my book. I bet most the people watching are blown away by the new material. Again, it would be awesome if they just play new stuff.

I thought Bono's singing was actually great last night. My girlfriend insisted that he was lip synching!

I though it was a good preformance--and they are only going to get better. I mean how many times have they played these new songs? Probably not as much as we would think, and once they start to play them more and 'find the way' around the song--I think they'll just get better and better. This song def. has "opener" written all over it!

I felt most of the people were like "yeah, hey, cool U2 i know them they're pretty good." I did meet quite a few of huge U2 nuts in the line though, so they were there, i just don't know if it were loads.

also like I said last night, the world wide pants people are as lame as it gets

Does anyone know if Artie Lang said anything about U2 on Stern this morning? Artie is a pretty big music fan but mostly just talks about classic rock bands.

I think its possible U2 play MOS or UC with the downtime they have in NY. I'm sure they have the time to rehearse.

the last weeks has been busy for Bono, alot of interviews, singing outdoor.. That isnt good for the voice... Also that he is a bit nervous because that havent learned playing/singing the songs 100%. He seems to have a few problems on the low singing, but he is great on the high notes.

I think his voice will be more stable a few weeks in the tour, the only thing that worries me is that the whole tour seems to be outdoor wich isnt the best for him due to allergies, heavier air... Just remember 2nd leg Vertigo wich was outdoors and he didnt sing on that leg like he did on 1st and 3rd.
