But look at it this way: in arenas, they can tend closer to 20, and by the end of Elevation, some shows slipped to 18 or 19.

I didn't find any gold. But I did enjoy the lolly shop!

I have nothing against Ballarat because when I was there, there was a pub that was also a McDonald's, and that still impresses me to this very day.

I think U2 do actually have a teleprompter - Bono's just shit at using it when he's nearby, and has a tendency of NOT being nearby.

Oops, but I was close.

Still worth it. But as much as I wanted to hear Mysterious Ways, I'm still disappointed it was at the expense of Zoo Station, especially given the length of the sets.

And I'm sure it gets said daily, but damn near 30 years of material and they can't dust off more than 22 songs?

Ha.

Plus, Ballarat's in Victoria, which automatically makes it better than Sydney, the Gold Coast, Newcastle, Ipswich, etc.

Here's what's important:

Quote:
so we walk on and all of a sudden we seen, we seen this white mist, a mist, just like the mist that was in ´The Crawling Eye´, as I remember....coming down at the end of the boardwalk....slowly the mist opened up ....and out from the mist walked this dude....walking like it was 85 degrees, like the sun was shining, walking cool and dressed in white from head to foot

so....and what was worse it was four in the morning and I wasn´t sure but Steve said that he was definitely carrying....a saxophone....this could trouble you at four in the morning, the seemingly insignificant things that (chuckles)....now I wanna tell you (chuckles)(Steve: ´Come on, tell us´) I will, we figured....this must be some new implement of terror....this must be some new instrument of total destruction that was soon gonna rain upon our heads....(Steve: ´What are you trying to say, is this something gonna put a hurt on us ?´)

I was planning to sacrifice Steve to whatever, so, so....we ducked in this doorway, tried to keep out of the way....just stood in there....dark, raining (?)....then we heard the footsteps coming closer....now we heard the footsteps coming even closer than that.....I was feeling pretty bad, you know, (?) that bad that you feel down in your stomach, you know, (?) feeling bad

sure enough, to win, this cat did not pass us by in the night....but reached out into the doorway....turned (?) looking right at me and Steve....(?)....Steve was real scared....I think I, I wasn´t scared at all, I was like....I was....wasn´t scared, I couldn´t´ve cared less, I walked right out of that doorway and ran so fast home (chuckles) no, I didn´t, I couldn´t, you can´t desert your band members, when you´re the leader of the band, you´ve got show some moral fiber, you can´t desert your boys

So....I look up to this dude....I figured I´d try to make some conversation, right, talk about the weather, ask him where he got (?)....he wasn´t too talkative, was the silent type....all he did was....(?)....reached out my hand....and when we touched, it was like the sparks fly on E Street...´´
