And yes, I agree regarding stadiums. Two or three shows at Fenway would help with that.
I love these unsubstantiated newspaper blurbs that get everybody all excited. The 20+ gigs at London's O2 Arena rumour is just classic. Or when you get somebody from some random country Paul McGuinness doesn't even know exists going on about how "OMG LOCAL PROMOTERS CONTACTING U2 THEY'RE SO GOING TO PLAY HERE THIS YEAR!" and fervently believe it.

The one newspaper rumour that I really wish had been true was U2 playing Wellington's Events Centre. Sure, it's a pig of a venue, but it would've been the smallest venue U2 have played (at least as far as full tour concerts go) since the fuckin' Point Depot!

How would the Vector Arena (capacity 9000 or so - rumoured in 2005) have rated in the U2 venues list?

So what is the deal with this U2 MP3? What do people think? I've totally avoided the thread since about three days before the link was posted.

I'm guessing people are mostly reserving opinions since it's probably a low quality clip and then people like Rob and Peterrrrr are claiming Bono's voice is in its greatest form since 15 or 20 years ago.

But what do people think? Is it a new sound?

Joining the ranks, eh? I've only a few Interferencers friended on my Facey. I'm hoping to avoid a full rush (i.e.: not joining the Interference.com group or fan page), but, yeah, I'll add you.

Look, I realize the qualities low, and there are cars in the way, and maybe I should listen a few more times, but Philly, it sounds to me like absolutely nothing new

Not 100% sure if it would've been the smallest since the Point Depot, but it'd be bloody pushing it. If I remember correctly, a couple of the third leg Elevation venues could do only about 9,000-10,000 (Baltimore?). I'm not clear on how many some of the arenas hit on ZooTV could hold, especially the European ones, but the Events Centre would've definitely been smaller than any of them. I just loved the idea of them having to do about six concerts in Wellington!

Oh, the London 02 rumor was priceless. We even had multiple threads for that one.

You can't even tell what the hell it is. Yes, at times you can hear a bit, but how people can give pinpoint analysis from that is absolutely hysterical.

You couldn't be more correct.

I listened to it once. Could barely tell a thing, but I didn't feel like there was anything radically new hidden behind the poor quality.

that's true. I think what's irking me is the guitar, which is pretty much the most audible thing.
