Tired of IWF. It went undrafted in our concert song draft.

I'm looking forward the possibly hearing OOC and IWF in the same set. And EBW -> Bullet -> Troubles (Vertigo Bullet -> Troubles works surprisingly well), though I hope they ditch WOWY fairly soon or at least alternate it. I feel like Troubles fills teh same role musically/possibly thematically, even if it's not an instant crowd-pleaser. Both of them next to each other just kind of bugs me, at least at this early sage.

I saw they started a line across the road because venue Won't allow such early queuing. Good luck holding that order for 3 days lol

People are willing to give up 3 days of their lives to line up?

Seriously? Has the venue even stated definitively that they WON'T be doing a lottery?

So...waiting in line for almost 80 hours....

even at the furthest away spot on the floor = 4 or 5 inches/hour closer they might be to the rail. Worth it?

Ooops, is it a crime to like Mercy live better than the demo version? If, so, I´m guilty, you can shoot me

But give it a one more listen.

What bothers me about demo version is that annoying high pitched Bono´s vocal in chorus, then also that confused "Feel nothing" part. The ending choruses sound incredibly forced. With the overall length 6:32 it is very long.

On the contrary the live version sounds more tight. Chorus culminates better with "Because, because". The middle 8 with Edge´s mini solo works far better. The final repeated ending is also more powerful.

The Because part in the new Mercy is probably my least favorite part of any U2 song ever.

Waiting in line 3 days before the concert starts? That is nothing.. When U2 last where in Sweden people set up tents in park nearby the stadium more than a week before the concert. Why a nearby park? Its prohibited to camp outside the stadium. So the morning before the concert they tear down the tents and move to the stadium.

This is quite common at large concerts here, same goes for Bruce Springsteen and other big acts.
