I'd love it if Edge got to sing a song. Preferably "Seconds" or "Van Dieman's Land". But, I'm hoping there will be a song that Edge sings lead for on the new album.

they already brought back to life THE song to hear: OUT OF CONTROL!!!!!!!!!
I had enough of I Will Follow on every single tour (yes, on ZOO TV too, but sometimes). It's time for a change. I don't want to follow anymore, I want to get OUT OF CONTROL!!!!!!

It's pointless for U2 to bring back old songs. The more recent versions of Bad don't hold a candle to the older versions. No version of WOWY can touch the early `87 versions. It's just so pointless for U2 to relearn their old songs and bring them out of the closet. Their sorry version of A Sort Of Homecoming in the Elevation Tour is proof to this. Ditto for the Popmart Las Vegas Opening fiasco.

If anything, I'd rather have U2 practice their new album songs and bring all of them in for the next tour. It took U2 2-3 months to finally play Kite on tour, and maybe 2 legs before Wild Honey ever made an appearance. Maybe they finally learned Grace and When I Look At The World when the tour was all over.

U2 is notorious for being major slackers in their rehearsals. They don't practice the new songs enough, and just play them as the tour goes along. I'd rather have them practice on the current songs that they still remember how to play (as compared to relearning them), and also on giving the audience more of the new album. It would be a bad sign if U2 would just play 4 new album songs, then have the rest as a greatest hits tour.

Cheers,

J

What a load of crap. Jick, I honestly dont know why you even consider yourself a fan. What is it exactly that you DO like about U2? You bitch about them 90% of the time.

There is only 1 tour that U2 was not prepared to play. That was Popmart. They has a similiar problem for Unf. Fire but still played very well on the first leg. U2 played the new songs very well for Elevation and rehearsed for 4 months prior to that tour. I also point to the Lovetown tour where they were arguebly better during the first leg than they were at the end of the tour. So not being ready to play for one single tour hardly makes them "notorious" for it. U2 are lazy in rehearsals??? I assume you are part of the studio crew or there is no way in hell you would even have any clue about what they are doing there. So that statement is also a load of crap. Most of your statement is factless. 4 new songs only?? What are you referring to there. U2 have ALWAYS played most of the new album they are touring for??? So there isnt even a trend for this. Its quite obvious that you just spew this BS to get a rise out of people. Thats fine, but its also rather pathetic that your life is so bad you need to get attention this way and people get tired of that act quickly.

Sorry for the rant, but I dont understand the mentality of someone that seldom has something good to say. Criticism is fine but when that is virtually all you do it is ridiculous. And if you are going to criticize at least back it up with facts rather than spewing complete BS.

Jick, WTF? i agree 100% with everyone on here. why are you wasting your time bad-mouthing u2 on here? U2 have so many songs in there grasp, over 20 years worth. its great when they bring back some old favorites to give something back to the true fans. JOFO and everyone here i agree with you. he needs to back them up with real facts. and yes i would love to hear electric. co..

Blue Room is my new best friend.

Electric Co is kick ass and I wouldn't mind Out of Control like last tour (I'm thinking of Bono's role playing during the televised Slane concert)

Sure there are old songs they will always play and never forget how to play (Streets, WOWY, Pride, etc.), but then every time a new album comes out, they don't immediately play all the songs. It took a while for U2 to finally play One Tree Hill in the JT Tour. In Elevation, it almost seemed like an eternity before they played Kite and Wild Honey. In Zoo TV, they never played a full version of So Cruel, and maybe only once or never for Acrobat.

So obviously, U2 have little rehearsal time. I would rather have them practice more new songs that revive old songs that we've already heard in other albums or bootlegs. As for the new songs, at least we will get to hear them live. It's not a good thing if U2 will keep on adding to their list of songs never played live.

My proposal, practice and learn and play EVERY song off the upcoming album, then if you got spare time, that's when to try to relearn some older song. But of course we all know that will never happen, and not every song from the new album will make it to the stage.

Cheers,

J
