It's ... interesting from just about every other perspective too!

My personal favourite snippet in that spot is Bullet With Butterfly Wings from a good deal of the Vertigo performances. It worked really well.

I've only seen/heard that on the Chicago DVD so far, but it was very cool.

Just read the thread and a favourite scene came to mind.

Mrs Richards: I have a hearing aid.
Basil: Would you link me to get it mended?
Mrs Richards: It's working perfectly well.
Basil: No it isn't!
Mrs Richards: I haven't got it turned on right now; it runs the battery down.

As for the four shows after Dublin in Rotterdam, they were never meant to happen. The show on 18/12/89 in Amsterdam was cut prematurely short when Bono's voice failed, and the two shows scheduled for the 19th and 20th were accordingly postponed. The four Rotterdam gigs in January 1990 took the place of the Amsterdam shows - four rather than two due to the venue being smaller.
Oh wow, I didn't know about that with all of the Rotterdam business I mean. Sucks about his voice. I'm glad there was nothing wrong when he got it all checked out in the late 90s (Bono's all right guys! )


Guys, Bono's wide awake.

It's on there? Coolness. I know I've watched it, but that was once, over two years ago.

Was it upside down and in a ditch, because that may explain it.

See, that made me feel better just because it meant that every second post wasn't mine. I always get a bit worried when I check the thread stats and we've got 300 posts an I'm already past 100 ...
