Lots of twists and turns and opinions in this debate. Be happy you can debate how the vocals will be to any of their songs on this upcoming tour or any future tour because there will come that day when they won't tour any longer.

I'm a big fan of Rush, and whether you love or hate them (they are polarizing for sure) they have had an impact on music, have a loyal devoted following and are renowned for their musicianship (particularly live). They have toured extensively over the years and now they are done. Neil Peart's body can't handle the rigors of a 3 hour show with his style of drumming and has called it quits. Hell, he's been talking about not wanting to tour any more since the '80's. Their vocalist's voice has changed drastically over the years and they constantly modify songs so he can sing them. Different yes, but you're still glad to hear them.

They are far from being at the point that musically they are unable to play well live anymore. They are still fantastic.....but they are done.

My point is, debate all you want about Bono's vocals and how RHMT's treatment may "make or break" the tour, but there will come a point when it's done and over and you'll just be happy to hear Bono and the rest go out there to put on a show.

I, for one, will be soaking it all up and enjoying every single moment of this tour (as I do every one)....I don't care if it's considered a nostalgia tour or not, whether they re-do some songs so Bono can sing em.....doesn't matter to me. It's U2 live doing an album that has never been played in its' entirety. That won't happen again, and U2's ability (or desire) to play live is a finite thing. Enjoy it while it lasts

So here's an article I'll presumably need to update in a few months.
Ax, what would you say is a good example of a U2 song that has been truncated in its live performance? I know most of their songs grow and excel live, but there's got to be a good example of one that has fallen flat.

I ask because we can't necessarily assume that this tour's version of RHMT will be very much like the album version. Technically Bono can mumble through the verses, or even pass it over to Edge to sing, and it will still count as them "playing" it.

I know I'm not Axver but those come to mind...there are others

I like Red Hill Mining Town. I look forward to hearing this new version and then seeing it on tour.

This is my contribution to this thread.

This calm rationality and lack of hyperbole will not stand.

My guess is that he tries to sing it more nuanced and improve on it in that way...but is unable to hit the "big" notes à la 87 so it's less powerful overall...

Maybe they'll just (only) go back to the masters and re-mix it and then put new vocals on top (like Wave of Sorrow).

If they re-record...I just hope the new mix isn't made to sound adult contemporary or more radio friendly...or some other garbage.
He rerecorded the vocals + 30 years have passed so no, he can't sing it live like it's 1987.

He'll adapt the vocals to his current abilities, as he does with all 80's material.

Why is that funny? If that's the case then it's lame and pitiful. I don't see any humor there.

Make as many failed attempts as you want to disparage me but making lame remixes (as we all know they will be) and tarnishing the legacy of such a legendary album is anything but funny.

They could have Nickleback cover the entire album and it wouldn't tarnish its legacy

I get that this whole thing is emotional for you redhill, but you just need to chill the fuck out.
