Report from the Atlanta Soundcheck

I got this article in the bunch of google news articles that I get sent to my email - this guy did the catering for the Vertigo Crew

http://www.nonconformistmag.com/arch.../u2112205.html

"As we began serving dinner to the crew, U2 took the stage for their sound check. This was really cool to me, as it was as if we were the only ones in the arena (minus all of the tech’s and crew and security). The band began with a blues song that I hadn’t heard before, and Bono was signing the lyrics. Then they played “Mofo”, a song off of their Pop album that I would have never expected to hear them play live. It was great to see the band in their practicing element, as sometimes they would stop to change or fix a part of the song and then jump right back into it. They finished their check with “City of Blinding Lights”, which would open the second nights show again. "


Interesting

Yeah, we sooooooooo hoped they would play it that night. I had a good feeling about it, but no such luck.

well if they do ever decide to bring it out, the people at that show will be some lucky.....mofos.

I will be happy for them yet seething with jealousy at the same time.

oh im not blaming you. the last mofo rumor thread got to stay in the general discussion forum. but a mod decided to move this thread to the tour date forum, probably because they saw Atlanta in the thread title. if they were going to move it then the most appropriate forum should have been the setlist forum, not the tour date forum.

man i should be a mod.

im just saying since this is a thread about the possibility of new songs it would make more sense in the setlist forum, but thats just me.

Bono`s always said Pop was well received in Canada so perhaps they`re saving it for this weekend

I'm really happy with what we got. Both shows were GREAT ... but Mofo would have blown the roof off of the arena. I, and the people around me, would have probably hurt each other jumping around and freaking out. Maybe they're not playing it due to saftey issues. Maybe they're saving it to liven up a really lame crowd.

But seriously, if they're still rehearsing it, there's still hope they'll bust it out sooner or later.
As for the blues number, they're always working on new material while on the road, aren't they? I think this is another sign for the doomsdayers who are so sure this is the last album despite the band's protests that it's not.

and I agree that this is in the wrong subforum

No, I'm happy with what we got too and just the fact that I was there both nights but yeah, it would have been freaking amazing.

they rehearsed crumbs from your table both legs one and two and never even played it until leg 3. so they are likely just getting it ready for leg 4.
