Sydney_MIke heard 12 songs from the Achtung Baby album live.
All 14 albums

favorite tour: War Tour
"Actually, it was the first tour to Australia, just before TUF was released. Saw them twice and they were at their raw but passionate best."
favorite show: 2018-10-23 - London
"Amazing technology and visuals, plus a fabulous set and a band that is well and truly into its groove. I also love the innocence and experience album concepts and the narrative of this show; it made it felt like a complete show not just a collection of great songs. "
favorite album: Achtung Baby
"Immensely strong in terms of lyrics, themes, melody and sound. So many brilliant couplets written by Bono. So Cruel is a perfect example. "
favorite song: Bad
"Never ever tire of hearing this song as it spoke to me strongly when it was released because someone I once cared about was reportedly caught up with drugs. I almost cried when they played it in Sydney on the 360 tour."

about Sydney_MIke
Been a follower since seeing a video for Gloria back in '81 or '82...too long ago now to remember exactly when. First saw them in 1984 and was in the crowd when they recorded the Zoo TV concert in Sydney. Due to their absence since 360, I've flown to Vancouver for the start of JT30 and most recently saw them for both nights in London for e+i, taking my tally to 12 for now. They have provided the soundtrack to my life.
