Couldn't care less about either song. How about something from the two decades when U2 were almost unbeatable.

Wait until The Good Song is dropped for Ordinary Love and Every Breaking Wave comes in for SATS.

Ha, I was wondering why I was tagged in a tweet from them.

Also, night 2 was so much better. Partly because I ended up on the rail without even trying, but it did feel much tighter.

So fun. Yay, U2.

 
I didn't notice this last night, but after seeing someone mention it on Twitter, I listened for it tonight. The show opens with a voice giving instructions to breathe in and hold and exhale, interspersed with that freaky MRI sound.

Jeez, welcome to Bono's near-death experience. I'm a bit of a softie, but that gave me a little chill. .

How do we know that's Bono though? Or have we just made the connection based on his "hello I had a near-death experience stop asking about it" thing? If it is actually the case, then holy shit, super cool and I'd get chills too. But do we know for sure? Or are we speculating.

Yeah, the explanations about that part are making their rounds on the Internet now. Also mentioned here: Bono's MRI Starts U2eiTour
I've even seen reports saying that the screen isn't showing static during the first song, but that it's an extreme close-up of a MRI of a (Bono's?) heart.

well yea, it's speculation. but all things considered, what else would it be? the screen even moves up and down over Bono the way a patient getting an MRI would... and we start with a song called Blackout or, followed by a song about seeing the lights in a near death experience.

What I don't get is why he won't just talk about whatever the heck happened. I mean... he's singing about it and designing shows around it, but won't discuss it? Weird.

I want to hear more about these "mixed thoughts"!

ABOY for one of its most-loved new tracks should be celebrated? And a song that has similar vibes to War should be something up your alley?



Also folks, that was 8 new songs last night. I don't think I&E ever got that many in one show, maybe 360 didn't either.

I wish I liked the album a lot more, but I think it's a positive sign of U2's self-confidence and future prospects that they are willing to support their new and recent material to this degree. They also continue to push their live performances forward with fresh tech, and I have to praise them for that.

Sure, they're touring for the new album, but I very much doubt most of the audience wants a set that's a third from the new album. It's not 1987 or 1992 or even 2005 any more. I thought the balance on 360 with about 6-7 was good.

I do agree that having Red Flag Day is better than a nothing song like ABOY, but I'm not high on it like you folks. It's middle of the road for SOE.

And it was 9 SOE songs. You can't skip over LIAWHL; Bono definitely sung it live. It seems only Tulsa and St Louis got the lip-synch treatment. I'm actually just checking when was the last time 9 new songs were played for a U2gigs update; it's been a while! And if we count SOI as still current, that's 12 songs; the only time U2 have got that high is when they were promoting AB/Zooropa in 1993 - the two London shows that got Zooropa's title track had 12, and the Zoomerang shows had 13.

I thought no IE show had more than eight SOI songs, but it turns out two did have all nine that got played live:

U2 Montreal, 2015-06-16, Bell Centre, Innocence + Experience Tour - U2 on tour
U2 Inglewood, 2015-06-03, The Forum, Innocence + Experience Tour - U2 on tour

That last one is especially notable because you also get two other new songs: Invisible and Ordinary Love.

No other show had more than eight SOI tracks, not even those where Lucifer's Hands or the Crystal Ballroom were played.

On Vertigo there were two shows that get to nine from HTDAAB if you count Fast Cars:

U2 Chicago, 2005-09-21, United Center, Vertigo Tour - U2 on tour
U2 New York, 2005-10-07, Madison Square Garden, Vertigo Tour - U2 on tour

Those are the only other instances since the turn of the millennium of 9 songs from a new album.

And the last time there were ten songs from a brand new album? The first six shows of Popmart.
