U2 touring the Joshua Tree

They are only playing one UK date, London. Surely they will announce more ? plenty of hate in this thread I’m sure but I fucking love that album, such a massive part of my life since I was 12…

Anyone going ?

U2 rightly get a spin a times but they’ve released some fucking great records over the years, well mainly the early years

oh yeah, haven’t had any interest in their recorded output since actung baby. But yeah, up to that point they didn’t really put a foot wrong for me. Even have love for Rattle and Hum.

Yep, I’d concur with you there.

Shame that Twickenham is a terrible gig venue.

Reckon they’ll play it in reverse order?

I absolutely love Zooropa, but, yeah, it’s a rapid downhill slide after that.

Yup, going to try and get a ticket tomorrow morning. I never got to see them back in the day, so this is as close an opportunity as I’m likely to get.

All over this

Good work buddy. Tried and failed, guessing they’re all gone now and fucking not buying them through whatever shite ‘resale’ site that they’re pushing me through now.

surely they will announce some more UK dates ?

Yeah, just announced the following Sunday :ok_hand:

It’s a great record.

Won’t be spending any fresh money to buy new product or see them live but I’m interested to see what reaction there is. Will there ever be a critical rehabilitation? After all they were a decent band once upon a time.

What would your worst to best ranking of the tracks form the Joshua Tree look like saps? I think I agree with their top 3.

Here’s mine (worst to best, remember):

  1. Trip Through Your Wires
  2. Mothers Of The Disappeared
  3. Exit
  4. Bullet The Blue Sky
  5. Running To Stand Still
  6. In God’s Country
  7. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
  8. Red Hill Mining Town
  9. One Tree Hill
  10. With Or Without You
  11. Where The Streets Have No Name

I find this sort of ‘journalism’ very irritating.

Here’s a classic album! Here’s what we think is the shittest bit.

A brilliant band have brought something new out! Here’s what we think the shittest thing they’ve done is.

Yawn.

Difficult.

Had to have a listen.

Mothers of the Disappeared
Trip Through Your Wires
Exit
Running to Stand Still
Bullet the Blue Sky
Red Hill Mining Town
One Tree Hill
I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
In God’s Country
With or Without You
Where the Streets Have No Name

Thanks saps (sorry if you were expecting me to be @Lucien or something)
