Ok, this is my third try at posting this. The first 2 times, I had really hilarious links associated with key words, but now I'm just so pissed off and frustrated that this is all you get.
The funniest quote from U2 regarding their new tour: 'The tour set
list will definitely be about half of the new album. We're not about
cabaret or greatest hits. People are expecting the new songs because
they are on the radio and at the top of the charts.' I can find 5
things wrong with this statement. U2 is all about greatest hits.
That's why they sell 2 separate greatest hits cds. I would give $100
to see them play a concert where they don't play "One". I mean, it's
a fine song and all, but come on - BORING!!! It's not what I want to
hear at a concert in 2005. Same with "Where the Streets have really
long names". I get bored just writing the name of the song. That
song has had regular radio airplay for 18 years now. Isn't anyone
else tired of it? Anyway, they are supposedly rehearsing "An Cat Dubh
/ Into the Heart", "Zoo Station", and "40", so any of those will be
totally killer to see live.
U2, your songs on the last album, terrible. With you the force is strong... old Rockers. Seeing the
setlist from the rehearsals today brings warm feelings to my heart.
Anyway, my tickets should arrive today. I think if I put a telescope
in front of my binoculars, I'll be able to make out the shape of the
stage from my $50 seats. Damn you, unwavering fandom!
