*Thanks*, guys for another great show!

Ha!!! they had extra surprises for the St Patrick's Day @ BBK's

A pipes & drum band ( ?Knights of Columbus) who came up first.
A belly dancer for "Mysterious Ways"!] She sure shook it! and had these great gold wings she first stepped out ( to hide herself )
and......
so sweet a marriage proposal on stage during All I want is You (? friends of Tony/Bono) !!

UF rocked out as usual... esp NYD!, Gloria!, SBS!, IWF! Ultraviolet!, BD!, Elevation! and Electric Co.!
(and the "brick in the Wall"addition ) ( isn't there a song by PF on the same album called "Run Like Hell??? some riff reminded re of that, too)

my only complaint....... about the show.. and sorry Mickster.......gotta have serious disagreement here....NLOTH is one of their best...... EVAH!!!!

.....and having been at the shows in NJ......I can tell you there were a hell of a lot of fans cheering, singing and dancing to the No Line songs (so there!)

And i didn't actually hear (your answer) as to who the (whaaaa?, ONLY) one of you is who likes NLOTH.......


SO....... just so you know ahead of time..... UF fan.... .
....who also wants to hear NLOTH songs will be disappointed on them seemingly not doing them any more (UNLESS it was only this BBK show omission).
And too bad, too, because ....
UF did great versions on them last year!

carri good to see you! Nice to meet your bud....Elizabeth? Hope you got the the station easily!
Looking forward to your photos!!!!


See you guys.... ? in May.....Canal Room? or something like that!

In the meantime Go Well !

A very special version of "All I Want Is You".

Mick starting with ukelele. Very cool. And then it gets REAL good at about 4 mins in... Be sure to watch the whole video.

always an issue with tribute acts... the balance between the non-fan, the casual fan and the hardcore fan... and trying to match that balance.

the non-fans will only get into the hits, the casual fans will appreciate the popular non-hits (your ultraviolets, your kites, etc. etc.), and the hardcore's want B-sides.

it's a tough line to straddle. the casual & non-fans usually make up the majority of the crowd, but the hardcore's are the ones who give you real cred. within the u2 fan community it's self.

I think that it is a good thing if they do play some songs from NLOTH. But I can't imagine that anyone expects a U2 tribute to play 6-8 NLOTH songs in a set.

I love NLOTH. But I am also one that loves when the older less played tune or b-side gets played.

But in the end, the band has to 'feel' the song or otherwise they will hate playing it and it will show.

That goes for the real U2 as well as any tribute.

don't get me wrong I agree with you !

Last BBK's (and Canal <summer>) '09 they did 3 - 4 ........ Magnificent/Breath/ Boots and possibly NLOTH a nice amount


what I was trying to say in my end comments was also

they played and sang the NLOTH songs Sooo WELL I certainly couldn't tell they (in general) were NOT really into it !

Which is a sort of a different type of skill (visually capturing the spirit of the songs) in addition to the skill of being able to recreate then in Music and Voice.

OH and yes I love that I get to hear UF play U2 songs THAT U2 don't play often or not anymore (until.... they do <if so> again) because UF does do them so well.

And thanks for the vid!
