i wasn't a source to the vertigo show i went to, so i don't know how people hold their phones. i do know you better make sure it's fully charged, as we had some people's phones cut off mid-song, then trying to call them back, it went straight to voicemail

i wonder how good anything would sound through my phone i can't remember how blackberries sounded.

No way I could afford it this time around. Plus, if I were to travel, I'd very seriously think about Europe instead, especially if the US were stadiums. There are four places I'd like to see U2: New Zealand, Boston, Dublin, the Netherlands. I've only done the first two (and I'd love to see them in Wellington rather than Auckland too).

I think some people just clipped them on to their belt or something while others actually held it, but I'm not entirely sure. Part of it depended on where you were in the venue too. If I remember correctly, didn't those people with seats tend to produce better feeds?

And I think ramblin rose's Blackberry had the best quality of any feed.

Ahh, right. Maybe I'll just have to take a risk and get U-Wen to take me to some good Chinese restaurant ...
i wouldn't call them fundies. but i don't know. and lol, my mom saw one for the first time in the 70s when she went on vacation to florida with her sister. they weren't up in maryland at the time, so they thought it was chick-fill-uh.

mmm...chinese

Damn I want this album to come out

I actually imagined a semi-decent musical accompaniment for NLOTH using PFan's original lyrics, and now I'm pining.

well, I could see a show of my preference, it would be at the most remote city available......in U2-3D, it was mentioned that these places have the most appreciative fans and the performances are even better.

So a place like Argentina would be good.

I only see that particular restaurant while I'm in Texas, can't say I'm too fond of it, and I can't avoid calling it chick-fill-uh in my head. Takes all of my restraint not to call it that out loud

You know, I don't get the deal with that, it's not just U2,

Springsteen's last few shows have been completely amazing, and he's been in places like The Netherlands ...

Hi Jen!

ooh, i see. plus, if it's arenas, maybe they'd come here again but i won't get my hopes up for that. and i hear you about travelling. i'm dying to go to vegas so there's that excuse, and a friend of mine in boston wants me to visit, so there's the other excuse.
Awesome. Once the tour forum's reopened and things get under way, we'll get some proper planning into gear.

I'm genuinely surprised that they keep skipping Tennessee all the time. You'd think they'd do at least one of Memphis or Nashville. It will be interesting to see just how much they tour in the US this time around, given the declining US economy and the increased profitability of other global markets, including a good number they've never played.

I will always be a little sad that I couldn't a ticket for the Omaha show. They had never played around here before and it ended up being one of the best shows of the tour. Awesome setlist too.
