"Well, it's been a while really, but my voice has finally been getting back to where it was, like it was when we last played Gloria in 1985, and the Edge is really on fire. We're producing some amazing, amazing sounds, and Larry's become invisible, which has really helped the process along - I mean, there's some real heavy stuff coming out of his drumkit now, y'know? Anyway, Acrobat, a great song from Zooropa, and I'm glad that we've finally come around to playing it."
LMAO.

MOAR? Because I'm so there.

I would if a) I didn't live about an hour and twenty minutes out, b) it wasn't almost 11pm and c) if it wasn't this stinking hot. Although I think c) probably negates what you wanted anyway.

Besides, you don't really drink beer, so you'd just end up with a fridge full of lemonade or something.

A. I can wait.
B. I'll be up until 2am.
C. I don't care, as long as it's wet.

Argh, I was looking for something so I missed the last page or something. Whatever, I was going to go to bed in a minute.

Bono also had this to say:

"Red Hill Mining Town? Yeah, another nice tune off the Joshua Tree that we've not played for a long, long time. We haven't played that, really, because I haven't been up to it, nor has Adam - it's all about how the vocals combine with the bass on that song, and until recently we haven't really had the technology to do that."

Later on in the gig, Bono had this to say before One:

"Well, I'm so glad that we're all here to support this worthy, worthy organisation. Lmao Zedong was a truly great man, inspiring character, leading Taiwan to independence despite the attempts at assassination. Now this here is a song that we only play on special occasions, but before that I was wondering if anyone had any song requests?"

"DISCOTHEQUE!"
"I THREW A BRICK!"
"A CELEBRATION!"
"MOFO"

"I heard One, so whatever you want!"

Alright, the heat has now caught up with me (hopefully for the last time this month?) and I'm ready for bed.

Have a good night/day, guys.

After the gig, Bono released some spoilers for the upcoming album:

"Well, the lead single is gonna be called Blindness, and it's all about the themes of life and death as seen through the eyes of Time, y'know what I'm saying? Edge is really, really hyped about this one, he's telling me that it's the best song we've ever made, and I think I agree with him. Larry's invisible, of course, so I'm not quite sure what he thinks, but there are some truly momentous sounds coming out of that drumkit. Adam, well, Adam has just been playing like there's no tomorrow, I mean there's literally notes flying off his bass onto the pages, flowing like a- a stream of molten metal. It's a great feeling, having this new album, it's a bit like the top of a newborn baby's head."

God damn it, I have to walk around Philly this morning, and it's (does math in his head) 6 degrees outside and windy.

Let's even it out with the temperature we have here, that should leave us with a nice 20 or so degrees each.
