3rd leg SUCKS!!!

i dunno why more people haven't commented on it, but what is u2 thinking with the 3rd leg? They didn't change a single thing. All they have done is drop songs. and what did they add, 1 crappy benefit song in What's going on? Bono, if you read this, i ask you, what's going on? oh, and they've changed the lyrics to New York. Big deal, the song sucks anyways. it's one of the worst songs u2 have ever written. And now it seems to be in the encore. ahhh. obviously done only because of sept 11. well, i'd almost rather hear the band play god bless america than new york. Looking at the past 2 chicago set lists has really disturbed me. the same old show with the same changes.. ie all i want instead of bad... desire instead of angel.. the only new song is i still haven't found. i'm sure everyone at those 2 shows also went to at least 1 of the 4 they played last time around. and they are barely playing for 2 hours. you'd think a band like u2 could play for 2 1/2 at the least. especially with what they are charging. well, i just thought i should vent my frustrations. it seems to me like they are just blowing off the 3rd leg. if this continues, i may just give away my msg ga's. hey u2, what's going on?

Give away your tix then. I'm sure there are people out there who've been to 10 shows and heard the same setlist that would love to go and never complain once.

You don't want your tickets? I'll take them. In fact, I'm sure there are 101 people on this board who would take them no problem-o, sistah.

I want you to keep in mind that the band has been on tour now for...what? CLose to a year? Do you know how LONG that is? No wonder the shows are shorter! They're probably exhausted!

I for one saw the first leg show in Toronto, and saw the third leg show in Hamilton. HAmilton, BY FAR, was the better show. The energy, the enthusiasm, etc. I hadn't heard--Bad, Still Haven't Found, People Get Ready, Shine Like Stars, What's Going On--I for one, would much rather not hear God Bless America than NEw York. U2 isn't American. Why should they have to play it? New York is an original song--it's filled with emotion, and I for one, think it captures the essence of the city perfectly.

Wow... I really dont know what to say here - I was at Montreal and both Chicago shows and I can't complain about a single thing - too bad you feel this way - I can name 5 people right now that would take your GAs in a heartbeat.

you know what, astoria? you sound just like the spoiled american that everyone around the world hates. i'm sure that people in latin america, asia, and australia (to name just a few) really appreciates your bitching about the setlist, seeing as U2 has not even come to their countries for a single concert.

please give away your MSG tickets to someone who appreciates what the band is doing.

Sorry, but I was at both Chicago shows (I was in the heart in front of Adam the second night) and while their setlists weren't dripping with originality, I have nothing but good things to say about both shows. The guys were clearly having a good time. How many times does Larry give out his sticks? He did it both nights here. And as far as I know Adam doesn't usually shake hands with audience members after the show. But he did here. Clearly, these shows meant a lot to them, too much to simply "blow off".

I simply disagree with you on New York. I think it's a brilliant song, but I'm not going to argue with you, since I'm unlikely to convince you. But the lyrical changes were amazing. They changed the entire feel of the song and they are wonderful words of support for New York.

And as for paying for two hours, what's the problem? Two hours is a damn long show. Maybe they didn't play every song I wanted to hear (but then I didn't really expect them to play Acrobat ) but how can we complain about a two hour show when they gave their all on every song? Just my opinion. I hope you change your mind, keep your msg GAs, go to the show, and have an amazing time.

-Bill Flanagan, at an after-concert soiree with the band and Co.

"We're thinking of playing a show in Chicago every Monday night. What do you think? We could get a place here. Edge could open up a corner grocery. Ok, a hardware store. Larry could open a securities business. Adam could be Larry's body guard."

they had time off between the 2nd and 3rd legs. You'd think that at the very least, they could change up the setlists. i'm sure some of you must agree with that. this u2, the best band in the world. they could do whatever they wanted on stage, and it wouldn't make any difference. so how about having a little fun out there. try some new things. come on u2, throw in electric co. or a b side.. anything just to mix it up a bit.

Set lists rarely change during tours. Look at the set lists for the different legs of PopMart. Few changes. The only reason Zoo TV had major changes was because they had a second album out by the end, so they got to trumpet both AB and Zooropa. But this isn't Zoo TV. Be lucky they came back this time. If you want to bitch about ticket prices, that's a separate debate, but, content-wise, it was as great as any of their other tours.

I'm so tired of people complaining about setlists, what they did and did not play etc. They didnt have to come back for the 3rd leg, can we just be friggin happy that they did??? Any chance to see U2 is a gift wrapped in gold.

I'm American and I'm frankly kinda offended by your "spoiled American" comment. But to put it into perspective, your complaint has more merit than astoria's, imho.

Let me get this straight. You think that having setlists that aren't tailor made to your specifications, even at concerts you do not attend, is a problem? Should the band run everything by you? Are you going to pick which songs go on the next album? Do you get to design the cover? Boy, I envy you. You're such an important person! I wish I could be just as important as you are! That's so cool that you get to decide what the band gets to say, do, and perform.

What? You don't? You're just talking out your ass and acting like an ungrateful idiot? Huh. I never would have guessed.

You're forgetting that Bono's father died two months ago. I'm sure he had more important things on his mind during that time than setlists.

If you don't wan't your GAs then just sell them to a real fan.
