Did anyone catch Bono snippeting "Breathe"? I forget which song it was during, but he was basically reciting the lyrics from the last chorus. None of the U2 setlists I've seen have included it.

Sing your heart out during With or Without You?

I've chatted with Ax about it. It's Bono talk and assuredly not an intended snippet.

Yeah, it's like Bono kept saying luminous but had no intention to have the band play Luminous Times.

I know.

I thought it would add extra context to the lighter ticket sales for this tour (i.e. it took an Ambassador to even get them there for 360).

Just watched video of the performance. My memory must be failing me, I thought he said some other lines but I was wrong.

I think Pittsburgh lower attendance is do to the show being on a Wednesday and the nearby Cleveland show is on a Saturday.

So maybe it will be closer to 45k. We shall see.
My guess is they wanted people to buy the more expensive seats that were selling so poorly.

The upper deck is the largest section, and it was quite empty. 40k sounds accurate.

40,000 on a Wednesday in the Rust belt with a Saturday show a stone's throw (2 hours) away is still pretty remarkable. It just obviously lacks in comparison to Saturday in LA at the Rose Bowl. But I think most bands would be thrilled with a 40,000 grab given the location and night of week...and average ticket price. Cap choices are basically theaters, sheds, arenas, and stadiums...there is no 45,000 cap to choose, so you go to the stadium. I imagine the 40,000 there were rather into it...

I don't know as I was stoned to the bejeezus). They nearly closed out the Claw Tour there (then added the Moncton dates, IIRC). It's a great town. Wifey is from there and we get to go back from Chi often. I feel like I'm defending the town, and I really don't know why, but I'm glad the band hits it up as frequently as they do. It's the gleaming, coughing gem of the rust belt. It was the first place I felt at home after leaving home. It might be my favorite city.

Wow! What a great performance of Streets right there!

Maybe the band won't go back for a stadium gig. Probably for an arena one. Maybe they don't care if the stadium isn't full if the punters are going nuts. That'll happen in Pittsburgh. Have you seen what they do to that place for a fucking Kenny Chesny concert?! Google it. You'll never stop laughing!
Thanks for this!

Trash left behind in a Heinz Field parking lot after a Luke Bryan concert. Mostly from our not so friendly neighbors from the south and west.
