Of course, even if it worked we probably wouldn't even be able to get tickets.


"We didn't want to change the past too much, you see. We just wanted some other poor bastard to miss out on seeing the gigs rather than us."

Also, I'd like to fix it so that U2 play the eighth Melbourne show and fifth Dublin show that were both originally planned but never went on sale, let alone happened.

See, this is why it needs to be a time and space machine, a la the TARDIS... so we can just materialise inside the venue! Nobody misses out, history is not altered, and we get to see the shows...

Yeah, true! That's kinda sad actually

It kinda dawned on me just then that that's one of the main reasons why I try so hard to be front and centre for concerts (or as close as I can get!) I think I tend to remember events much better when I can see peoples faces properly (which may sound a bit odd!) I always find if I'm too far away, I feel almost disconnected .. hmmm. And it helps to be close enough to take photo's (which also help trigger my memory).

The funny thing is because of that, I can remember more of the concert I saw in Ireland a couple of years earlier

Alright, this sounds like a winner.

Speaking of winners, I think the Melbourne gig with the best set was probably 13/10: http://www.u2-vertigo-tour.com/show787.html

Though 09/10, 12/10, and 14/10 are all pretty incredible too. But 13/10 not only has incredible songs, but flows impeccably.

Alright, I'll shut up. Shit, it's 1am already. I better shut up and go to bed!

What unbelieveable setlists!

:envy:
ok, I'll have a look

Do you have Cork, Ireland Aug 8 '87? I can never forget the intro of 'Stand by Me' and 'C'mon Everybody' ... Sooooo funny, still to this day if I hear 'Stand by Me' (John Lennon) I immediately am reminded of this concert!

I'm just trying to remember whether or not I cried during 'the Unforgettable Fire'

I still have trouble listening to this song, as beautiful as it is. Too painful

Yeah, here's the set: http://www.u2-vertigo-tour.com/show611.html

Think I have the bootleg for that; I definitely have the 09/10/89 Melbourne gig ...

That makes sense... and after going GA for the Vertigo shows, it will be very hard for me to sit further back, I think. I would like to indulge myself in some A res tickets, just to see what it looks like from there, but I'd only do that if I was also seeing other shows GA. If I had a choice...

I still get shivers remembering the look on Bono's face during Sometimes, and after one of the others... maybe Pride or Streets... one of those ones where the whole audience goes nuts on the Ooh-Ooh-Ooh things
And Edge during UTEOTW...

*nostalgia*

I definitely remember more of the second show, although that could just be because it was the second show and it over-wrote a lot of the first one in my head, as well as my having a spot on the rail as opposed to three people back.

And crap, it is 1am. After I said I couldn't stay up this late... and I've got a 90 minute drive to my parents' place after working all day tomorrow. *idiot*

Seeya Bonnie! And everyone

OK, I think I'm out too. I need some sleep. If we get to a new thread and Vazza's not around to do Bill, WY, then I propose Bumberry in New South Wales.

G'night Ali, Melissa, Saddo, and anybody else who may be around!
