Tour: Experience and Innocence tour
Songs played: 25
Audio recordings: 1
  1. We wanted Red Hill... happened last year. Been banging on about Acrobat for 20 plus years, we get it. Let’s please stop with setlist moans. 23 great songs, they have never mixed it up that much, playing more songs than most other tours... let’s live in the moment and embrace it. In a few years there will still be a few posts on here with people saying that they would love to see them play live again when they have finished, bet you’d take this show and set then.

    Setlist chat and complaints are all part of the fun of a u2 show/tour. Yeah it can get a bit out of hand at times but it comes from a passion with the band and there songs. I would repeat what I said the other day though about maybe not complaining about it during the live shows as it must be off putting and not really a good time to start a debate. During the show the performance should really be the main topic to discuss.

    Yes its all part of discussion, but some on this site feel its funny or the in thing to do to complain about everything because they think thats what others want to hear
  4. I wonder how many people in the crowd are standing there moaning about the songs... complaining to the person next to them about the song being performed... 'if this is Red Flag next I'm going home, yep, there it is, see ya'.
  5. There should be a moaning about moaning thread too
  6. I just want to add my two cents here. I went to Paris 4, my second U2 concert after JT2017, waited all day and got the place I wanted right in front of the main stage, I was so glad.

    The concert itself, it feels that it needs to be said wit hall the people being a bit jaded here... It fucking blew me away, the band and the crowd were all in this. And I want to especially say how I loved the narrative.

    The intro is INSANE. The Chaplin speech with Zooropa mixed with Love Is All We Have Left in the background, leading into the crazy intro sounds of Blackout, it gave me minute long continuous goosebumps, I can't begin to express how insane the feeling was in person...

    I'm a young dude, I keep rewatching it, and it makes me want to change where my life is going. It makes me want to fight for what I believe in, to fight for a better world, to use my time here to fight for humanity. So yeah, just wanted to chime in and say that this concert was insane.

    Also, I wrecked my voice for a good few days.

    +1 (Berlin visitor here).
    Can't wait for Copenhagen.

    Can't understand all the whining... Check out the enormous variation in Depeche Mode, Guns'n'Roses or AC/DC setlists Sure, would be great to have some changes, but the show is still great. I've seen 2 JT17 shows and they happend to have the same setlists... And I'm absolutely glad that I could see both concerts
