Eh... more like someone's playing the electric bill and set-up for that freaking massive 8K screen for each stop, haha. Or the people setting it up each time.

This might possibly be the most uncreative thing the guys have ever done on tour.

There, I said it.

And yes I'll still be attending
Your opinion is bad and you should feel bad.

I hope they keep Bad into Streets. I don't really count MLK as a full song.

Oh, and you half a dozen screen savers comment is even more laughable now.

So which footage did you think he shot the day before the show?
Very little live video in Vancouver, but they added a bunch and effectively used new angles in Seattle. So obviously the U2 crew agree with me rather than you. I still think more could be done.

The cowgirl lassoo clip has the wall of BC place in the background. A fan got his photo with Corbijn in Vancouver and reported them shooting that.

Highlight for me was the full band version of Mothers of The Disappeared, I've waited so long for that and it didn't disappoint.

Is Lionel pointing at where Mariah's clothes are?

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

No. He's pointing at Bono in the audience and throwing down a gauntlet saying "Your turn, b*tch"!
