The Official "No Peeking" Support Group thread

this thread is for people who don't want the shows spoiled for them. this means.....

- no peaking at setlists
- no listening to bootlegs
- no finding out that "OMG THEY PLAYED LEMON!!!11"

......before you see your show.

the question i ask is if it's actually possible to avoid this information, or must i take a 2 1/2 month break between June 30th and the Chicago show?

I'm considering a break.

Before you all start laughing - no, really, I am.

see, i'd hate to leave for those 2 1/2 months, but i'm just afraid that finding out things will be unavoidable, even with the great job the mods have done with spoilers over the last two tours. somehow, i'll probably end up reading a thread and a post will say something like:

"and considering that they're playing 'Your Blue Room' really shows the direction this band is going artistically."

even though the above scenario is probably unlikely, reading something like this is very likely.

Ha! I'm in. I'm going to do my best.

But as a bootleg collector, I'm still going to download what becomes available when it's available. I'll just have to click the "download this torrent" button while covering my eyes so I don't see the setlist.

I imagine I'll find out some of the songs they're playing, but if I can avoid actual setlists and avoid hearing live versions, I'll be happy.

yeah, i'm a huge bootleg collector too. let's just say that after the Chicago show, U2start.com is going to get a big workout.

I managed to make it until the actual album release date having only heard GOYB and about 90 seconds of Magnificent, so I don't think I'll cave too easily.

I wish I had the willpower to stay away from this site altogether like some other people I know. I am powerless against the Blue Crack.

If a thread were titled "OMG! They haven't played the same setlist twice yet!" by the end of July, then would you feel safe enough to join back in?



'cause it could happen.

I won't listen to bootlegs, but I know I'll find myself wandering onto U2gigs.com to view the set lists.

I've made my peace with any spoilers I catch. Even after insisting on being at the Popmart, Elevation and Vertigo Tour openers, there is no way I can go to Barcelona. I insisted because I wanted the FULL surprise.
So, I'll live with what comes.


Mark---I'll be gone for most of July anyway, so I'll miss a lot.

I had the same idea to be honest. I told my wife I don't want to know anything!!
This time it is possible because they will start in Europe and Amsterdam is quite early in the tour .. sssssooo I have to hold on ...

I held out for the actual album to listen to the new stuff, so I know I can hold out for this....even though I have to hold out the entire summer

Just think of how cool it's going to be to go to the concert with no idea what their opening song is, how the new songs will sound (although we've heard some of them on TV performances ... but they'll probably change a little), what chestnuts they'll pull out ...

And you can experience an eye-roll right there when they drag out whatever chestnut you're sick of, rather than seeing it online and rolling your eyes ahead of time!
