Mysterious ways slane

hiya. I have a question about the new Slane DVD. I noticed that Mysterious Ways isn't included on the DVD, but it was a staple of the tour. Also, like the Boston DVD, it has only 19 songs, whereas on average they played about 21-22 songs each night. Was it an unusually short concert, or r they making the mistake again of withholding perfectly good footage of the band we love?

They probably didn't include it on Slane or Boston because MW was on both the Zoo Sydney and PopMart Mexico City videos. They probably didn't want to release the same songs four times.

Mysterious Ways wasnt included because I believe Bono brought his daughter Eve up on Stage and she danced during the song.

I would bet Bono wants to try to keep his family's privacy, so thats my guess on why it wasnt included.

Well, to be fair, One, Pride and New Year's Day weren't on the Boston DVD. I Will Follow isn't on the Slane DVD, and Sunday Bloody Sunday, the full-band version, wasn't on Popmart.

That makes a little bit of sense, but what about the 80,000 or whatever people who were at Slane and saw her dancing live? Did he ask them to cover their eyes when he brought her up on stage?

Yeah well without sounding too ungrateful I must admit to being disappointed at the news that we'll have to wait still longer for a full official live release. That said I'm of course thrilled to see another release from the Elevation tour

And I'll definitly still buy it though (or have it bought for me maybe - it's two days before my birthday) :-)

does anybody else think that U2 should maybe go down the road of a DVD/Video release of various songs performed at various venues throughout the tour??

Another favourite band of mine, Pearl Jam, released a DVD a few years back called Touring Band which featured a great setlist of songs from various places and the versions shown are great ones.

U2 tape all their shows as well and it would be great to see different songs from different venues that captured different emotions and were nailed on in certain places. Some might not like that format but if done well its great.

Still looking forward to the Slane release though. Seems an age since I had the chance to get any "new" U2!!!

Nah, because DVD/Video is so "produced" and fake sometimes. There's plenty of audio and video bootlegs to go around.

NShaik, the believe the Boston DVD is also missing Mysterious Ways as well as In My Life (I think it's that one), People Get Ready, and One.

I have to agree with NOT including MW on the Slane DVD considering Eve's participation. If you really want to see it, you can download the bootlegged video of the entire concert.

I just phoned my Dad

He doesnt remember it either - he also suggested it happened at the first one - we were standing at the front - then I asked my other friend who was standing right at the front and he said he doesnt remember it either!



Clearly this happened....... I dont know what we were doing at the time though - i did cut my foot at one point though and had to sit down and put a plaster on it maybe it happened then

Well, since she was 12 years old then, I don't think she was that big. Maybe you looked over her?
