Ultra Violet: New intro?

I just came across this video from Chicago, 12 September:



That's obviously a new intro to UV. Strangely, the videos for 13 September show the old intro with the Auden poem and the colours (which I like better).

Was this only shown in Chicago for one concert or also in Toronto? I'm curious to know why they showed this once and went back to the other intro for the next show.

And does anyone know what intro that is?

I believe it is a poem by Maya Angelou.

A Brave and Startling Truth
Maya Angelou

We, this people on a small and lonely planet
Traveling through causal space
Past aloof stars, across the way of indifferent suns
To a destination where all signs tell us
It is possible and imperative that we discover
A brave and startling truth..........
.......
We, this people, on this small and drifting planet
Whose hands can strike with such abandon
That in a twinkling, life is sapped from the living
Yet those same hands can tough with such healing, irresistible tenderness
That the haughty neck is happy to bow
And the proud back is glad to bend
Out of such chaos, of such contradiction
We learn that we are neither devils or divines
When we come to it
We, this people, on this wayward, floating body
Created on this earth, of this earth
have the power to fashion for this earth
A climate where every man and every woman
Can live freely without sanctimonious piety
And without crippling fear
When we come to it
We must confess that we are the possible
We are the miraculous, the true wonders of this world
That is when,
and only when
We come to it.




please what sing bono just at the end of this poetry?

also, the backing music to that intro is the theme from the swan. i flipped out in chicago because i thought it meant your blue room, with all of the space imagery. very cool, although like you i preferred the one from the second night - it was the one i wanted to see as well.

I really liked the second intro, the poem by Maya Angelou. It seemed to fit with the flow of the show very nicely.

Wow, that's beautiful, thank you!

I don't know about the song, though.
