The few hours I witnessed the Vertigo tour have been the highlight of my year. However...

I made the mistake of taking my sister to the Pittsburgh show. during the extended "40" at the end, my sister was bored and ready to leave!! She kept singing "How long do I have to sing this stupid song?!" Grr... As soon as the house lights went up, she told me she didn't need to see them on tour anymore! Wha?! How can people like that exist, let alone be related to me?

To think, I wasted a $115 ticket on her.

But yes, mdmack, we are all obsessed obviously. I would have kept on singing "40" well into the night. Should have left sis at home.

Still wanting to go to Cleveland December 10th...

Well, as for playing whole albums: The Cure played their "trilogy" concerts. Three whole albums in their entirety (Pornography, Disintegration and Bloodflowers) and after that they played some more stuff. If I remember correctly those shows where like 4 hour shows!!

A while ago David Bowie would play the entire "Low" album as a segment of his show. It should have been mind blowing!!

Now imagine U2 doing a trilogy concert: "Achtung Baby" "Zooropa" and "Pop"!!! That would be something would`nt it?

Withdrawl for sure. If this tour was in the summer, when I'm on vacation, I'd be broke. Still, I managed 4 concerts this tour. I know it's not a lot, but when you live 5 hours north of Detroit, you don't have a lot of options.

I love Zooropa and Pop, but lets be honest, if they played those albums, the newbies wouldn't be all that interested. They didn't go over in the States well when they were new. Maybe someday we'll get to hear a few songs from those two.

i know green day did it for american idiot but that's a bit different than going back and playing an album that's 15+ years old
DARK SIDE OF THE MOON? Besides the Floyd playing it a year before its release and during pulse 1994 tour...... Phish even played it in its entirety in concert

Even though Dec. 10th is gonna be my first show. I think I'm already obsessed with their live shows. I've have alot of dvds. It's probably going to be a religious experience for me to see them live. I wouldn't be suprised if I wet my self during 'streets'.

my first show was 85 and it felt just as "religious" 2 weeks ago in Oakland. Prepare Scarlet to be blown away, this probably will be your best concert experience ever! I am stoked for you! Streets is one of the highlights for me, especially that buildup at the beginning...ahhhh chills......

Well, they do not have to do this for an entire tour! It could be done as a few "special" shows. And they could advertise them as such. And it should not always matter what "newbies" think and besides no one has ever been harmed from hearing some good music they have not heard before (on the contrary).

A show that presented "Achtung Baby", "Zooropa" and "Pop" would be artistically interesting and would make perfect artistic sense. I think that is a good enough reason (and indeed, when speaking of music or any other artform, the most important reason).

Try explaining to your girlfriend why you need to drive from Toronto to Montreal and buy a ticket off of ebay for $250CDN to see U2 Live when you've already seen them 9 times this tour.

Seems I've got problems....

.....needless to say....I still don't have a ticket for Montreal.

U2 is your drug and that's cool. If you were talking about meth or heroin I'd say that's not healthy. If you were experiencing the symptoms you mentioned outside a U2 concert than that would be weird. It's totally healthy and normal to be overwhelmed at a live U2 show. I know I am and freinds who went with me who don't(didn't) even care for them were also overwhelmed. Two of them even cried!!! I've seen them 4 times(COBL video shoot included) this year and one more time to come in Portland. I don't think I have a problem. I just know I'm onto somthing cool. That in itself makes me cool

It would be cool to see but it worked so well with the Cure because it featured their latest release(Bloodflowers) at the time. Those 3 Cure albums do actually make a convincing trilogy but I'm not sure the 3 U2 albums you mentioned would. Boy - War would work better as would UF-R&H. ATYCLB and HTDAAB have the makings of a trilogy but the 3 90's albums don't in my opinion. Seeing them perform those albums though si still a nice idea.
