<<never a bad U2 show>>

I've seen them about 16 times, but my first ever show was Popmart Vancouver, which I walked out during the encore. I've know of 4 other friends, all in seperate sections of the stadium, doing exactly the same thing before the concert was over.

<<Setlists>>

I only ask for consistency between published band comments and what they do. I think some fans were annoyed that they failed to perform several rehearsed(leg 1 played) songs during their 3 night Dublin run - surely their only Irish gigs would be more receptive than other cities.

What was wrong with the Vancouver Popmart show?

Save for ZOOTV, is that a first for the group inthe past 20 years?

Bono's voice was shot towards the end of the Zoomerang tour. Listening to Bono's voice on Streets and Pride from the Sydney video makes me cringe.

-Bad sound
-The mono sound(some nights it was stereo) from the "giant pumpkin" is the worst possible setup for this particular venue
-20,000 empty seats, they sold 400% more tickets the last tour at the same venue
-the gig after the Mexico video shoot
tickets were $10 outfront before the opening act hit the stage
-pissing rain outside
-Bono was in a bad mood 2 weeks after Hutchence
-Bono asked the promoter for 1 throat doctor - 1 ear doctor - 1 voice doctor at 2 am the day of the show with the possibility of cancelling the whole show
-Bono spent 4-5 days drinking tequila after the mexico show(documented)
-Bono shaved his head
-Dead crowd
-Bono called the city "a rainy little town"
-mountains of bad press the 9 months leading up to the show.

7 years later and no Vancouver promoter has booked a full sized rock concert in that venue.

Of the fourteen I saw, the worst shows were May 21 at MSG (bad band performance and horrible crowd) and May 14 in Philly (first of my 14 show run).

I was at the May 21st show too, and I agree with your assessment of the crowd. Something just wasn't right...people around me were rude and seemed to be into their own little dramas instead of the show (like the obnoxious couple behind me that was talking very loudly about their date during the first encore). I thought the band was fine, though.

2 out of 16......not bad
I thought 11/21 was absolute perfection...everything was on that night, best show of the tour I thought. Second night didn't beat it but it was far from the worst show of the tour as well. I thought NJ 5/17 was completely lacking energy although I already know other people see that one differently too.

"Bono called the city "a rainy little town"

i think this is for you the main reason to call it a 'bad show' and fuck off during the encore.....
the other things you've mentioned, dont really make it for a bad show; a lot of this always happen, before and during shows, the thing is people don't always notice it

Tell me Bono forgot a lot of words, tell me the sound collapsed, tell me the band was out of tune, tell me a lot of the audience left during the encore.......did it happen?

No it didn't

-Bad press is not a reason to point out it was a bad show
-Bono calling the city 'rainy little town' is not also
-tickets were $10 outfront before the opening act hit the stage also not
-Bono asked the promoter for 1 throat doctor - 1 ear doctor - 1 voice doctor at 2 am the day of the show with the possibility of cancelling the whole show....
-pissing rain outside... ?

the truth is all of this pissed you off. But to call it a bad U2 show, i dont think theres enough objetive reasons
They are not

I'd say out of the 5 shows I went to, 5/24 in Boston was the most lacklustre. It certainly wasn't bad, but it wasn't WOW or anything. It was still special because it was my first full-fledged U2 show (after Brooklyn) and I went with a friend from high school that I hadn't seen in 3+ years who was a massive fan (also going to her first show). We were in the very last row of the arena, straight back, and while it wasn't terrible to see the show from that perspective, it certainly didn't compare to seeing my last show from GA.

Also, I wasn't thrilled with the setlist. They had recently dropped New Year's Day (and not replaced it with anything) and being the first show in a city, I was expceting ACD/ITH, but we got The Ocean...and only The Ocean. No Gloria, no Bad. Blech.

And to whoever it was that said both of the November MSG shows were bad, I thought 11/21 was pretty great. Granted I had an amazing GA spot, but Instant Karma felt spontaneous (sure they ended up playing it several more times over the following weeks, but it felt special in the moment, and that's really what counts, I'd say). Even though I wasn't there, I would agree that 11/22 sounded pretty lame. The ending w/ IK sounded like a bit of a mess, and dropping 2 songs from the night before w/o replacement songs seems pretty shoddy.

The crowd sucked for 12/09/97, and I gave a slew of reasons why the crowd could be put off.

Go find the tape of the show, I think there is also a videotape.

I've never seen the show in anybody's top 10.

BTW, hasn't Bono performed great shows where he has forgotten the words?
