How great would it be if the band performed the same set-list in each city that they performed at that city in the 80's Joshua Tree/Lovetown tour.

Not tell anyone the intent, just do it.

Desire (Trump Version) will be a must. And it I kinda hope (expect) it'll open the concert.

Vertigo, Beautiful Day, Elevation, Miracle, Pride, One, SBS, EBTTRT will all be present after TJT.

Yeah, I thought about Desire as an opener as well.

So I see that the media is buying this "We delayed SOE because of Trump" nonsense at face value. Is anyone here? Given that most of us are knowledgable U2 fans, I'm guessing not.

I haven't looked through all the threads, but I'm assuming that most people here see this "Trump delay" thing for what it is...the record wasn't ready (of course it wasn't ready), and Trump presents an opportunistic excuse. They were already planning a 2017 tour, LN's pissed, hence this hastily put together Joshua Tree thing. Calling the Joshua Tree relevant or urgent because of the political climate also presents a convenient excuse. And less painful than falling off a bike. Though given the band's historical statements on doing this kind of nostalgia thing, perhaps not significantly so.

In other words, if you're actually buying any of this political excuse for all this, I've got a live tree in Death Valley to sell you.

That said, I'm more excited for this tour than I would have been a continuation of I+E. I'm interested to see how they stage the show, and of course the music is great. The Joshua Tree is arguably more relevant to more people than SOE could ever think about being, so if they want relevance, they've got it, at least a Sort of Relevance.

I think that's it... nobody's buying the reasons for SOE not being released, but everybody is naturally excited at the prospect of seeing them play TJT in full.

As much as U2 are clearly a band with strong political views, I wasn't expecting an album which really reflects the current political landscape or anything like that? That's not where the band are or how they work really is it? Especially when they're taking a few years to write and record - that's too long for them to make a statement album?

Plus with SOE being talked-about as a companion piece to SOI, the whole theory makes even less sense.

But hey, Exit live!!

Meant to say, on the day of the announcement I noticed loads of friends on social media re-posting the announcement - most of them I never knew were U2 fans - all very excited about the chance to go and see U2 live again. And today I see that TJT is charting on iTunes. So I think regardless of what we all think, this is going to be a very lucrative tour for them and could possibly reignite wider interest in the band and their next album...

Very smart of them - it is currently $5.99 in the US store, and number 20 on the worldwide iTunes chart

This article by Roger Friedman is probably worth the read: "U2 Scraps New Album For Easier 'Joshua Tree' 30th Anniversary Tour This Summer" (http://www.showbiz411.com/2017/01/10...ur-this-summer).

Hmmmmm.

Quote:
An expanded “Joshua Tree” collection is expected with outtakes, etc.
Don't we already have one of those? Are there any JT-era "outtakes, etc." still, well, out there? I assumed we pretty much had all of it, so I can only imagine this will be repackaging of what we've already got? Or perhaps a re-imagining of the record as "The Two Americas"? I can't imagine U2 would put out yet another version of JT so abruptly, when there's little to sell. Maybe some kind of digital edition I guess.

Or just another reporter who doesn't know WTF he's talking about?

That article looks like a bunch of hastily put together garbage, actually.
