Ax?
Yeah, that's pretty much half of the performances of Pride ever done.

I just know it was one that was on a DVD/CD not sure which though that's the problem. Grr. I really think it's R&H though, so no worries

18 November 1989, Sydney has this awesome Knockin' On Heaven's Door cover where Bono goes on one of his great unrehearsed political tangents. It just always comes across as so much more meaningful and powerful when it's not a carefully timed, well-rehearsed speech.

*considers rapidly expanding Bootleg folder*

I am not looking forward to splicing all these two-part boots into one folder for each show.

Probably RAH. I, for the record, have not listened to Pride from RAH in about four years.

If you want a really good live Pride, try either 31 August 1984, Wellington or the Old Grey Whistle Test performance from 8 March 1987. Both beat the studio version. No others do.

God I know. That Bono was a different person that's for sure. I know this guy still means well, but it just feels flat when it's repeated at every single show.



Hey Ax, Bruce hit 30 songs at a show the other day btw, Has U2 ever even come close to that mark (especially) while they were young?

Yep, that's the Bomb Threat show. Somebody phoned in a bomb threat, so the entire venue had to be evacuated before the show so that the police could search it. Of course, there was no bomb.

The end result was that the band played an amazing show, though. Bono's quite passionate, and he makes a number of references/jokes about the evacuation.

I got the bass tab for 40, a while back. I've got no hope of playing it though, since a) I can't use a pick (yet), and b) it's not an Adam bassline. Damn you, Edge! *shakes fist*
