new tour info: rock or acustic version?

Hy everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows more about the Bono interview where he said they're going to do 2 dates in every city with different sound, one rock and the other one acustic..........???????????

Since I REALLY want to see them again, but NOT in the acustic version, to me it's really important try to purchase the ticket for the right date.. anyone who knows if they're playing the acustic one in which date??

Thanks, and good luck with the presale!!
K.

Bono says many things, not all of them should be taken that seriously.

There's nothing official, so it's all speculation at this point.

While indeed both shows will have a different "feeling", I (and I guess I'm with the majority) don't believe it'll be a drastic electric/acoustic difference.

The fact that they didn't specify what they meant by that, makes it reasonable to believe that they won't come up with such a huge difference between shows.

Both shows should have electric and acoustic elements, but probably one will have a bit more of one than the other.



Again, all of this is speculation.

Nice of them to say all of this stuff beforehand and then keep people in the dark when it actually comes time to purchase tickets.

Can you imagine the complaints, if you could only attend one show and then come to find out it was all acoustic? I'd be pissed lol.

I know. I wish they would be a little more specific with what they had up their sleeve. Also wish they would announce some additional dates, and while we are at it, i wish i had a giant pink elephant in my backyard that shat golden froot loops into a pot of wild mushrooms.

Exactly.. they have been my first love since I was 12, but when I manage to see them live was such a huge disappointment.. It was 1994 Zooropa tour in Turin.. half concert with Bono and Edge with a guitar.. sorry but that's not my thing. I wanna ROCK!!! I never try to do that again until now.. the first good album in 15 years.. and they want to do the same acustic s***!??!! I cannot believe it..

I really really hope you're right guys!!!

If I was a betting man I'd guess that 2/3 of the main set would be quite different from one night to the next (at least at the beginning of the tour) and then a "home stretch" 5 or 6 stone-cold classics like they have many times before, then maybe different first encores on each night and then a pretty similar last 2 or 3 songs for encore 2.

I'm a little nervous about this as someone who only has tickets to night one of my weekend. I'm hoping to later snag a resell of a ticket for night 2. I feel like it won't be acoustic/electric more than it will be the content of the songs. I'd rather be at the Experience night, but we still have no idea how this is working, so I still went with night one.

Also I've seen several times the idea that innocence=acoustic / experience=rock, but in case they go the acoustic/rock route, it may be the other way around:
Innocence more focused on punk/rock and the experience with the string section.

From the staging set up it looks pretty obvious there are two stages the smaller one for acoustic numbers no way they would do a full acoustic gig

We're all just guessing, aren't we? It'd have been nice to know what the difference between the nights is going to be but maybe THEY don't know yet further than they just want a distinction. I got 2 nights, one seated and one standing, and I hope I've picked the more rocky night to be jumping about down the front
