Now you say it, it does seem like so yes . That, or he has big knees haha.

Another thing, the audience needs to be so much louder in the official release. On certain songs in Amsterdam at least, the crowd singing made it 100000 times better as an experience.

Sure in the middle there is a break from the politics, the band moves to the b-stage and become a folkband. And thats also a reason why like this tour, while there is a very serious political message there are also alot of joy and happines both from the members and the crowd. The band feels very comfident. But then the politics comes back after a few "happy" songs.
The band havent be so comfident also with the news songs since ZooTV, 360 tour went to be more of a greatest hits tour. This tour really is a "latest album tour".

Also the old staple songs that have been booring last tours have come to new life, WOWY, Streets, Pride.

I realy hope they bring this confident feeling to the next album, proud of the new songs and let them be what they are and try not hunt the number 1 spot on the toplist with it.


my teenage daughter was really impressed re. the political aspect - first thing she said after the show!

I think Bullet also deserves a big BIG mention in this one. Like people are saying on this forum. The songs reborn. I went to several shows and I remember standing back for 2 shows, hanging around the redzone's VIP areas, and back end of the crowd,
I was fucking proud to hear, the ahem... " casuals" behind me, and I qoute :

"Holy shit this is fucking badass" - "Never heard something like this before"
and - "I got goosebumps all over"
They still have it.

I think it's not the phaser.

Thanks for pointing this out, great stuff. What show is this from? Great mix of IEM/crowd too.

U2Achtung (French fansite) is reporting that the Paris shows will be rescheduled for December 6th and 7th, with an official announcement expected on Monday.

If the shows are rescheduled for Dec, do you think they will film them for HBO?

It obviously comes down to scheduling and logistics but if they can I think they would be crazy not to.

Even if the rescheduled shows aren't broadcasted live, they will at least be recorded and broadcast whenever it can fit into HBO's schedule. Happy that these people got their shows rescheduled! (Pending the Monday announcement)

Lots of Twitter rumours today about the Paris shows and that apparently they're taking time off touring until the fall. Though I suppose it would make sense with the SOE in Sept rumours and then tour with the new songs rather than continue touring the same markets with the same show. Hmm

Hopefully they'll announce tour news on Monday too.

I would be amazed if Live Nation is not pushing hard for the band to be on the road in European stadiums during the summer. If not, they have an underperforming asset on their hands, and shareholders have every right to be pissed.
