All discussion about Bad here!!!

This worries me somewhat...two nights and no Bad??? Glad I didn't go 2000 miles to see either show. I'll wait and worry until Vancouver in late October. Sure hope they bring it back by then.

In Europe, they have played most shows without Bad. In many cities, the audience didn't even get to hear Bad once. What's more puzzling to me is the fact that they've played three shows without Pride now. I seriously expected them to bring Pride back for the second Canadian show.

also, you base a concert experience on one song?

I agree with your sentiment, but I think too many U2 fans do base a concert experience on one song - just that song is Streets.

I know it is strange but I guess the answer is ...kind of, but not quite. Every show I've seen of U2 has included "Bad" since 1985...this tour I'm ecstatic that they are playing "The Unforgettable Fire" " Until The End Of The World" "New Years Day" " Stay " and a couple of others...and yes, some of the new stuff as well...BUT...and it's a big BUT...without "Bad" I would somehow feel it was an incomplete show...it means THAT much to me. Sorry, but that's just the way it is.

p.s. I hope they bury "Pride (In The Nmae Of Love") for a few years at least. Never liked it that much. Bring back "Out Of Control" to get the crowd going.

Yeah, I wish I could claim his record. I'm grateful just for getting Bad 7 times out of 17.

3 out of 7 shows.


Seriously, I loved it. But would I consider the other concerts less because they didn't have Bad? Nope. Because I know Bad is barely played. I just consider the other shows 'regular' and the ones with Bad extremely special.

I've seen Bad 1 out of 9 times.

It's the one song I've always wanted to see live, but I would never base an entire experience around it, no song is worth that...

My favourite U2 song shall NEVER be played. Does that make every show less 'worthy' for me? Nope.
