question about An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart

An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart is such an incredible addition for die -hards like myself, but I am curious how the arena reacted-I would be surprised if it lasted deep into the tour since it is slow paced--I would think most non-die hards would be put to sleep which would affect the overall mood of the building--can anyone comment on how it went over...

agree.

most people that were around me were mostly hyped when newer material was being performed. I dont think this "Boy" tribute will last long on the tour.

Well, bollocks to that!

If it does get dropped for NAmerica, then I hope it gets put back in for Europe, and then Australia (whenever that happens... )

I like to think that U2 fans are of all age groups, not just your 16-25 demographic....

I really think U2 will keep this in... They are very aware that most of the audience don't know these songs and knowing this, I really think U2 put this part in for the die-hard-fans

I wasn't asking whether die-hards like us would like to hear it or nor--the answer to that is obvious. Rather, I was wodnering how it went over in the arena (for those who were actually there) and how that may affect its inclusion in future setlists. My personla opinion is that ACD/ITH will not last because of its pace. Electric is a great addition because it is more uptempo...

I think the opening few songs are a fantastic mix - and really hope I get the same ones by the time Cardiff comes around.

I hpe U2 get rid of those Boy songs .
They are too punkish and seem out of date.
They are also far too slow.
Need more Achtung Baby.

Boy songs too slow

I'll be surprised if the Boys can keep the original tempo up.

I wouldn't mind hearing An Cat Dubh rotated with Gloria or Out of Control, or maybe a song or two from the 90s. But keep Electric Co.

How did Bono sound singing An Cat Dubh? I have a lot of versions where he sounds awful and this was back when Boy and October were the only albums they had.

Sounds okay to me...crowd singing with him, so people saying they don't know the tune is quite a stupid argument...! Most of them know the song and even if they don't, fans go home thinking "Christ, I've gotta get me a copy of 'Boy'...!"
