This is why you go to both nights.

Or, in my case, 7 of the 9 gigs down here. I didn't miss anything, though I wasn't at the show with what's currently the last full band Walk On (2006-11-10, Sydney; Liam was) or the last Zoo Station (2006-11-16, Adelaide; Bonnie was). I've made a few firsts, or first-in-a-whiles, but largely not been at lasts.

I'll make a thread for once.
Yeah, she proposed Hell, Michigan. Which occasionally freezes over.

Cool.

The only problem was that a) I missed out on the first concert tickets by getting the selling date wrong and b) I couldn't have afforded two anyway.

Now on the other hand, I'd go to both, regardless of how much it'd have cost.

BTW, next tour, I'm sleeping over at your place, cause you live closer to the city and hence I don't have to wake up ridiculously early to get a good spot.

I've just discovered a new favourite lyric .. from PT's 'Lazarus'

Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul

The main memory that came flooding back at this second show is that how fantastic it felt to hear the audience sing along to every single song What an amazing atmosphere!

Had a big smile on my face listening to this all the way through
"again" she says... and you wonder why we're all jealous of you.

I was the same way the first few times I was listening to those boots... biiiiig cheesy grin... of course, that was after the post-concert grin faded... which took about a week or so

I know Bono said "Wow" after every Streets (or was it Pride? One of those big audience singalong ones - and I know that now, anyway), but I saw the look on his face before he said it. You can't fake that.

(And we've seen something of Bono's acting skills )

Don't worry, Melbourne II was by far the superior gig anyway. I think it was the best in Australia, while Melbourne I was the second weakest, with Brisbane the weakest.

And my place is reasonably handy for gigs. But where I stayed for the Vertigo Tour was the best! It was at the intersection of Spencer and LaTrobe, so barely a minute or two's walk from the Telstra Dome!

As a bass player, I can only agree

And I am still pissed off that I didn't see Edge call us Sydney. I was looking elsewhere (why, I DON'T know), and heard it, but I thought it was Bono until DAYS afterwards.

I'd've camped outside the Dome, myself.

Damn it, U2, get a new tour going already.

Ah, the good old Wow snippet after Streets. I came so close to recording that a couple of times on U2VT. There were some occasions where it was Streets / Wow x3 (snippet).

Frankly, I do think he was just doing it to play the crowd.

Streets at Melbourne 2 was just ....... far out awesome! I remember Bono's reaction to the incredibly loud cheering .. he just looked so amazed and happy ... it was just incredible!

Brings a tear to my eye really ... just beautiful! I just felt so happy that night especially

It's a very Bono thing to do, yes.


Dear U2,

Can we please have the new album and tour ASAP? Interference is really, really suffering at the moment and we need a new album to clear the crap.

Please note the attached threads from EYKIW; read through them and you'll understand what we mean.

Yours sincerely,
U2 fans

PS: Please either leak full songs, or nothing at all before the album. Some of the people who post on Interference take far too much out of a 3-second clip.

PPS: We believe it's Larry's turn to lose a demo CD. We eagerly anticipate it.

That was an amazing, amazing moment, yes. Just the feeling when the organ sound blasts out, then Edge starts playing those notes, then Larry starts the droomstick hitting

Then Bono starts giving a speech
