The thread is dying. People totally shouldn't go to bed.

Maybe I should take this opportunity to do some readings for my tute tomorrow. Or, you know, maybe I could just procrastinate by watching stuff on YouTube and such.

He did that one when I saw him live a while back... I don't think I've ever seen one guy with a guitar fill a room with music like that.
Oh, that's just him? Yeah, that's definitely some pretty good guitar playing. I enjoyed it. Shame it's atypical of his style though!

Apparently he used to do that busking...!

And what you said on Sunday about Edge getting sound out with just his left hand on the neck reminded me of this, cos that's what Mr Butler was doing too.

Hey Jen!

I'm up and down, packing a bag for the weekend... and I am going to be in bed by 11pm, I swear.

Procrastination is made of win.

Tomorrow's made of fail for me though. Just because it's going to be long and mentally exhausting and I better go to bed fairly early (i.e. approximately midnight). Ah well, at least I'll get to meet the Maj. at our lecture, finally! And Ali, would you want to do lunch at all?

Ahh, right. That's pretty neat. I'll have to dig up the DVD for you of Edge doing that. Pretty damn sure it's 9 October 1987. It's really cool.

Though actually, I wonder if it can be seen on a better JT era gig, because the 9 October 1987 show really isn't all that.

Sounds cool... although I can't remember what song it was.

I should be able to do lunch... 2pm again?

Oh dear, now I'm having a nerdy moment. I looked up the 9 October 1987 set to copy it and show why I don't think it's all that, but now here I am, just clicking through third leg JT sets, comparing them and such. There's this really dull run of static sets from late September to late October 1987, though I wonder if it's to cater for the fact Bono had his arm in a sling due to that dislocated shoulder, as it's bookended by much more variable sets.

Anyway, here's the 9 October 1987 set:

1. Where The Streets Have No Name
2. I Will Follow
3. Trip Through Your Wires
4. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
5. MLK
6. The Unforgettable Fire
7. Exit / Van Morrison's Gloria (snippet)
8. In God's Country
9. Sunday Bloody Sunday
10. Help
11. People Get Ready
12. Bad / Love Will Find A Way (snippet)
13. October
14. New Year's Day
15. Pride (In The Name Of Love)

encore(s):
16. Bullet The Blue Sky
17. Running To Stand Still
18. With Or Without You / Shine Like Stars (snippet)
19. 40

It was The Unforgettable Fire.

Cool. Yeah, I should be able to get there by 2pm. I'll text you if I'm running a tad early/late - what tram I catch really depends on when my lecture ends. Just meet outside your work?

I love it when I discover random setlist stuff that I hadn't noticed before.

1. The 1987-11-28, Murfreesboro show is fairly well-known for the fact that U2 soundchecked Red Hill Mining Town. What I hadn't noticed until now is that U2 replaced October with ONE TREE HILL! The typical run at the end of the main set of Bad/October/NYD/Pride is replaced by Bad/OTH/NYD/Pride.

2. WOWY missed just two JT Tour shows. The first was the opening gig, 1987-04-02, as it did not debut live until the second gig on 1987-04-04. The other show is late on the third leg, 1987-11-26, Baton Rouge. U2 often did an encore of Bullet/RTSS/WOWY/40. What do they do in Baton Rouge instead of WOWY? People Get Ready! WTF?

Sounds good.

That set looks kinda unremarkable, for a JT set... but Exit always helps
I didn't know Bono's ability to play/wear guitar could affect the set so much?

And I don't think I've actually listened to UF (album or song) for AGES. I've probably been through all the others since I had UF in the car last, except ATYCLB. Must be at least a year, maybe two...
(The last time I remember listening to it all was around the time a friend/ex-co-worker died... and to my shame I can't remember if that was one year ago or two. )

I think I just saw an ad for a variety of Big M called "Edge".

If memory serves correctly, it is a pretty good Exit. The run of UF/Exit/IGC is what makes the show worth it. Otherwise ... meh.

Yeah, I'm not so sure. Basically, here's how the third leg went (indulge me here; I'm procrastinating):

10/09-18/09: set varies a good bit. This could be put down to just the usual fluctuations that often take place at the start of a new leg, especially any new leg where new material is introduced (e.g. One Tree Hill, Helter Skelter, and an unsuccessful attempt to use Bullet as an opener).
20/09: Bono dislocates his shoulder.
Week after 20/09: Set still varies a little.
But then from late September through to 28/10 it barely changes. Almost every show for the month of October is identical.
20/10: First show without the sling.
28, 29, 30/10: U2 play a three night stand in Chicago and rediscover setlist diversity.
30/10 to 20/12: Varied sets.



And I think you really need to play UF. It really is the only U2 album I've listened to with any regularity over the last year or so. I've gotten back into some other stuff recently, though.

I love that there's a radio station in New Zealand called The Edge.

I feel sorry for the people who went to JT Tour shows where 3 of the 19 songs played were covers.

Yes, still nerding around with setlists ... beats reading depressing science about extinction events like I was doing last night!
