The last 3 shows of The Joshua Tree 2019 tour are the focus of this episode and we talk about it with those who were there. We talk setlists, local fan experiences and share anecdotes from Seoul, Manila and Mumbai. We also answer questions from fans and discuss in length what’s next for U2, reviewing the status of the upcoming concerts films, new albums and what a future tour could look like. We thank you for a great 2019 and look forward to a new year of podcasts in 2020!

Thanks for your kind words and support on the podcast this year. It has been listened to from almost 70 different countries which far exceeds what we were hoping for. U2 fans are everywhere, what a band!
We'll be back in 2020. 👏
Great podcast, Remy, and as someone who attended the last three shows, pretty accurate.
It wasn't easy (if we ever go back to India you need to do a special edition entitled "getting a SIM in India as a foreigner", it involves lots of calls to the government and to the phone company, or alternatively getting an 8 year old kid to buy one for you, with his parents permission, in exchange for candy and I do believe the last car just might be ready to leave the Philippine Arena parking lot) but I wouldn't trade these experiences for anything. Have great memories of meeting fans seeing U2 for the first time and the looks in their eyes were priceless. Felt the same way, albeit a bit less drastic, in Tulsa and Omaha. Let's hope the band makes a point of hitting new markets every tour from this point on.
And thanks to U2start. I don't travel to spend my time online, I travel in part to get away from the internet, so a combo of your site, forum and Twitter feed was all I needed to navigate the various issues that presented itself in GA. Other sites not needed, which was a big time saver.
FYI: my manifestation of Bono Mono was officially diagnosed today as Influenza type B by the NHS. It apparently is not as severe as the worst flu out there but takes forever to completely go away. So to those still suffering there is hope: about 4-6 weeks from exposure to complete recovery. Happy holidays, all.
Listened to this last night (nearly a year later lol) and enjoyed it. Although sometimes you kept talking over each other and the background music was distracting at times. Was interesting to hear about the the Manila and Mumbai gigs.
what they said
"You are not just The Boss, you’re the chairman and the head of the union and the car park attendant.. you’re the comrade, the bandmate, the lover, the farmer, the husband, the father. I don’t know if this is about a father saying goodbye to his daughter as she sets off to find her own life… I don’t need to know. It’s about everybody who has to let go of something perfect. There Goes My Miracle is the greatest singing and writing of your life, I guess it took your whole life. And yes, some of us feel like we’ve lived it with you."
- Bono on Bruce Springsteen's There Goes My Miracle, 2020
