Yes you've read that well. No Joshua Tree songs this tour but still we have something nice related to With Or Without You to win for you. One of our Instagram followers, mr_reno made this great With Or Without You print and has four of them to give away to fans:
The winner of this contest will get one for free shipped to their home wherever in the world that may be. The number 2, 3 and 4 will have the option to get it, they only need to pay for the shipping costs. You can still say no if you win of course
Contest question and rules
* The contest will start today and will end right before the final Berlin show on 13 November around 20:30pm CET.
* The contest question is: guess the total show length in hours, minutes and seconds of the full show in Berlin starting from the first note of the Chaplin intro video to the moment where Bono says his final words after 13. If they for some reason do other songs, we use those. We will take the Mixlr [from U2gigs or others] as pointer. Alternatively, we use one of the bootlegs that will surface.
* You can participate only once, and cannot edit your post after 15 minutes anymore. However, if you want to amend your guess, just reply with a new post and we'll then only use your last one.
* I will post here and reach out to the winner(s) a few days after the Berlin show.
For reference, one of the bootlegs from London I have here runs 2 hours, 13 minutes and 51 seconds from the intro to 13.
Good luck, and thanks again to mr_reno for making this possible!

did you know
A local violinist, Steve Wickham, approached The Edge one morning at a bus stop and asked if U2 had any need for a violin on their next album (the War album). In the studio for only half a day, Wickham's electric violin became the final instrumental contribution to Sunday Bloody Sunday.
