Live COBL: Adam plays keyboards?

Does Adam take on the keyboards at the start and end of City of Blinding Lights on the tour? Or do they use a backing track? I think it'd be really fake if they used a backing keyboard track. It's so prominent and... no one is doing it! On the other hand, some poeple can live their whole lives without hearing the bass

Haven't see pics of that at all, y'see. Only of Larry on keyboard during Yahweh

Adam does play the piano at the very beginning and end of City of Blinding Lights. But the rest of the piano is either a backing track or played in the underground (Terry?).

Erhhh, during COBL on the Chicago DVD that was aired here yesterday, it doesn't seem like Adam is playing the piano at any moment.

Ok, maybe it was the way it was clipped then. I'm pretty sure it seemed as if he was standing with his bass at the ellipse when the piano set in

i believe i can solve this debate quite easily...



i took this at MSG on Columbus Day... Adam does indeed play the keyboard during city... he starts the song on it, switches to bass for the majority of the song, then finishes the song back on the keyboard.


i don't think he played the keyboard on the first leg of the tour.

U2 stole it from when The Killers opened for them in Europe.

I've seen photos of him playing it from the first leg.

I personally saw him play it on the Nov 1 concert a few days ago. I was right on the rail, center-right.

It looks like a keyboard, but like 1/4 the size. (they also showed him on the jumbo screen playing it)
