Album 13: Arguing/Punning/Meme-ing/Discussion thread

New thread!

What we think we know:

- A new song, "Invisible," will be released soon. Rumoured to be February 2 (Super Bowl). It will be tied to (RED) in some capacity
- Spin magazine reports the Super Bowl announcement will include info on the album title, and the single
- U2.com mods tweeted that now would be a good time to renew subscriptions to the site; and suggested that it's time to start saving for tix
- U2 will be the first musical guests on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, Feb 17
- Paul McGuineess says the album has plenty of hits

Now, like foxes in a chicken pen, go! my friends, go! kill kill!

I hope not. I don't think that people appreciated that performance very much.

Yes, they did. But Boots had been getting airplay via radio for a few weeks at that point.

Still, I'd love to see them do "Invisible" or even "Ordinary Love" on the Grammys. Jan 26th, so it's before the SB. If we get anything, it'll be OL, I think.

there was some grumbling about this wasn't there? and I remember the broadcast audio was crap.. couldn't hear Bono half the time..

man, NLOTH seemed doomed from the get-go, in retrospect.

We bought E Lansing right at a Ticketmaster outlet, and then Mr CK bought Pittsburgh day of sale right at the counter. All upper deck shows, but for us, just being there was all that mattered. We were more concerned with 'camping out' prior to band arrival than anything.

And if you're doing GA, membership doesn't mean a thing if you want rail spots. Ditto for inner circle. It's luck and circumstance (and at least an overnight wait). You can StubHub a set of GA tickets and land rail spots inside the ellipse.

I suppose it comes down to personal preference. I've NEVER done U2 membership. I did a BSB membership once when they did floor seating for a tour back in 2005, and that only netted me 5th row, not front. *shrug*

Just my Take it for what it's worth.
Okay now I'm confused.

I've waited practically all my life to watch U2 in concert. People think I moved to the US to get my PhD but it was actually to see U2 live. I don't want those shitty seats where you can barely see the band and the sound is awful. I want to be in the middle of the fucking heart/ring/whatever where I can shout obscenities at Bono for not playing A Sort of Homecoming. I don't know how much the good seats cost but I'm willing to drop up to $500.

I've never seen a big act live so I am clueless about how this works. So help me out please Interference, and you shall have my eternal gratitude.

It's very unlikely that you'll need to drop $500. The best seats on the last tour were $250. With a presale, you'll probably be able to get those seats pretty easily. General admission is more difficult, although you'll still probably be okay. GA tickets are in the $50 range. If you have a $500 budget, you'll have no issue getting GA tickets on the secondary market.

My memories are of a fairly awkward performance where the band was trying hard to sell a song that wasn't going over too well. Bono was bouncing around as always but aside from Paris Hilton, the crowd was mostly seated and stone-faced.

Now, my memory could be a bit foggy, but I recall it being the least engaged I've seen an audience with the band.

Basically. I seem to remember some audience action, but it certainly did nothing for the song in terms of overall popularity.

But Bono was wearing guyliner at the Grammy's, so it's all good.

They aren't nominated for a Grammy, so unless they're taking part in the Beatles tribute, there's really no reason for them to be there.

Unless they're new songs, I'm not interested.
