Wow wow wow, twickenham two just might be the best I've ever seen them, unbelievable gig. I'll do a write up tomorrow.

Ps - anyone on here that moans about elevation and vertigo in the set can kiss my hairy English butt cheeks :-) I mean that in the nicest way. The stadium was bouncing for these two tunes

Unbelieveable concert

I agree. In terms of audience energy at the Cleveland show, the definite high point was BD, Elevation and Vertigo. Those seriously are part of the U2 Greatest Hits canon now. A rather spirited version of MW came after that. I really liked the fact that I was seeing side 2 of TJT live, but I also really liked seeing how excited the stadium got during those songs.

Well what can I say. That was the most incredible weekend I have ever experienced. Never have I been to something as big as two sold out Twickenham Stadium shows with U2. Absolutely mind blowing. They are the most incredible band and truly one of a kind. Will post show reviews tomorrow. Atmosphere was incredible for both evenings. I have to say best shows so far this tour!

Hmm, okay.

Well, then they should open a Wegmans Stores in Palm Beach because it kinda destroys Waitrose, Sainsbury, Tesco and being from Scotland and now living in NJ, I've shopped at them all and sorry but nothing touches the mighty Weggers

And... it's elegant as feck.

JT was great, the last three songs are as close to perfect as you're going to get at a U2 gig.

The encore is total junk. I was bored out of my brains during the encore at the first night. Second night I was good and drunk so I jumped around like an idiot, but it helped that we got a great performance of MW and that I was far enough back in GA that going for a piss break during UV was possible.

And I still don't know if I can quite talk about missing out on ASOH.

Yeah Florida really is missing a Wegman's.

Interestingly enough, by the freak of all odds, I was at the Waitrose in Shepherd's Bush just a few hours ago (swung by Westfield for a pair of shoes, too).

Waitrose is nice, but I'm not quite sure where the hate is for American markets - especially in the gloriful land of Florida - Publix is fantastic. And Whole Foods is quite awesome. I wouldn't dare put either in the same league as a Tesco, and certainly not a Sainsbury. Publix is to M&S (food) as Whole Foods is to Waitrose. I think there are appreciable aspects to both sides of this pond. Signed,

i stopped in a publix once in some random town off i-95 while driving between jacksonville and miami, and it was like walking into a time warp from 1991. it looked the same as the supermarket my mom took me to and carted me around when i was little, filth and grime included (on both store and customers). got my sunscreen and a bag of beef jerky and hightailed it out of there before any rednecks caught wind of a handsome city boy in their midst.

i can't even fathom what a "nice" one would look like.

Sounds like you walked into a Winn Dixie. Which is weird, because even old Publix stores aren't typically bad. What you're describing absolutely doesn't sound like any publix I've ever been to.

I would say that is the look of a typical publix from the last 20 years. Also,

2017 - http://www.marketforce.com/en-gb/node/2471
2015 - http://www.floridatoday.com/story/mo...rvey/26178371/

Typically they're very well favored and loved. So, really not sure what you walked into, but I can assure you it either wasn't a publix, or was a true anomaly.

i am 95% sure it was a publix, and now i'm about to spend the rest of the afternoon at work searching for exactly which one it was because now i'm super curious being highly productive.
