They should ditch the SOI songs all together. It's rubbish.

There'll be nothing to ditch unless they make plans to come here.

This is quite a fun read: Noel Gallagher got so drunk with Bono on tour that he tried to escape - NME

Sounds like they had a great time behind the scenes.

Joshua Tree Tour 2017 - Rumors & General Discussion III

New boxscores released for the remaining 4 shows in North America

Kansas City 39,593/39593 $4.2 million

New Orleans 34,536/34536 $3.8 million

Phoenix 42,814/42814 $4.1 million

San Diego 54,221/54221 $6.4 million

It's gonna be really close between u2 and Coldplay to be top grossing music act this year, Coldplay will do 59 shows this year compared to U2's 50 . But there both going to gross just over 300 million, probably only be a few million in it

So Phoenix really showed up for a Tuesday night show at a stadium on the opposite side of a sprawling metro area (the largest metro area in the nation, as defined by whomever says what a metro area is) that was only announced after a Los Angeles and San Diego show were announced, appearing to be the only shows in the area.

I know I grabbed LA tickets, as did many Phoenix fans, because I thought that was my only chance. When SD popped up, it was long enough since the LA/Rose Bowl show that I thought "OK...I really want to see this again. SD weekend it is!". Only to then have Glendale/Phoenix added without rumor or warning until well after SD had sold.

So, on a Tuesday of a week I was flying out to SD on Thursday for a Friday show, I took the 110 minute drive (as it turned out) from the east Valley to Glendale in rush hour after work to see the show, knowing I had a 6:30a wakeup for work the next day.

43,000 other Phoenicians, in the same boat, after being drawn to LA and San Diego shows (these trips are not uncommon for southwest residents for concerts), showed up. On a Tuesday. In Glendale.

Phoenix remains a strong U2 city. A weekend show might have drawn 55K+..

Joshua Tree Tour 2017 - Rumors & General Discussion III

https://www.atu2.com/news/u2-lists-u...o-screens.html

Great piece

I started from elevation so I didn't see popmart or zoo tv

I know the article is about the screens but Stage wise, shock value and wow factor will always be seeing the claw for the first time. Amazing structure. You could see the bloody tip over the top of the stadium :-) I remember being on the bus from the airport to Dublin City center and going past croke park and seeing the top of the stage. I was thinking wow what the hell is in there.

I&e was amazing aswell and had many great moments but I don't think any top the start of streets on the Joshua tree tour 2017. When the screen comes on, wow wow wow. 2nd to the wow of the claw but very close. That screen was unreal.

Going back to the article, if I was basing it on screens it would be the Joshua tree screen at the top, stage wise the claw easily

As much as the Vertigo tour holds a special place in my heart, to call Vertigo's screens better than JT30, 360 or PopMart is just silly.

Agreed.

It is rather fun to flip backward through the stage/screens over the years.

Each one is special in its own way.

To be fair, he made the point that he was literally talking about just the screen, not the additional props/tech.

The point with Vertigo's "light curtain" was that the bulbs were individually programmable and retractable. I found it pretty damned cool at the time.

It does seem crazy to put it above Popmart's though. That thing was an absolute monster.

Personally I don't see the big deal about 360's screen. That show was all about the monstrosity of The Claw and the novelty of seeing them in the round.

The Hoberman screen was fairly advanced in its own right.
