Red Hill Mining Town

With the recent tragic news of the miners in New Zealand (and the miracle of the miners in Chile)... I'm still holding out for at least a snippet of Red Hill Mining Town.

I know the recent rehearsals don't show it but I guy can dream, right?

Isn't it time that at least a part of this song see the light of day?

What a weird reason to hope for a song...

I, for one, also view major tragedies as nothing more than excuses for my favorite band to play tenuously-connected songs.

Good thing they're not playing Breathe, Exit, or Love Rescue Me, then.

Also, what with the recent October revival, maybe they could add I Fall Down. And we still need some Pop material...Last Night On Earth, perhaps?

 
One ticket to hell, please.

That would actually be quite cool! RHMT is a pretty upbeat, anthemic song (wasn't it originally supposed to be a single?), so it'd work wonderfully as a celebration of the Chilean miners. Maybe they could use video footage of the rescue?

You probably didn't mean it that way but if you think about it twice, you don't post a thread like this.

Anyway, I don't think they'll ever play RHMT, if 1987 Bono couldn't handle it then 2010 Bono certainly can't handle it. I think it's even less likely than Acrobat.

Meant it as a tribute. No offense intended.

It's okay; it just came across wrong. You're good.
Speaking of tributes to the NZ miners, OTH in Auckland was really touching:
