u2br Bono attended Sil’s request! As it was her last show in this marathon, she asked him to play something that hasn’t been played before.
@U2start I’m going to have to have a think about this. Popmart had 11 Pop songs but never all 11 in one night… not sure if a night had 10.
@StartAtlnfinity It’s the fact they couldn’t find room for it any of the 5 nights plus Roxy is ominous to me. Plus, trying to jinx it. ;)
@azcat92 Stoked it was played - hope it becomes a regular. Hope it makes it to Melbourne so I can finally bloody hear it!
@EveryBrokenWave Haha, trying to work! It’s a delicate balancing act.
@atu2comSherry So do I - I needed the good people of Interference to clarify! :)
@EveryBrokenWave Come oooon Troubles!
@EveryBrokenWave That’s correct. Need to have at least one member of the band to count it.
@ClaytonsKitten I was hoping Bono would join in on the chorus so I could count it.
RT @theforum: ICON.
SilRigote I think I just died!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!!! Life is good…life is good!!!!
@JoeriHarcksen Oh we’ll have to check up on that later once LA 5 is over, thanks!
@Drea104 But we have counted those taped TV appearances where at least Bono is singing to backing tracks and the rest of the band mime.
@Drea104 Nope, has to be played live in some capacity. We also don’t count Lemon on Popmart.
@ekstewie Yes, it was Led Zep, first line of the song.
@SudburyShawn Haha yeah I’m going to be shocked the day they finally change that sequence.
@EveryBrokenWave It missed Phoenix 1 and LA 4.
@KevinMFeeney Yeah… that said, it took two months to show up on Elevation after being played at 2 promo shows.
@gshreck Yep, every show has started with The Miracle so far. Definitely think it’s doing better than Breathe did in 2009.
@RaulCamarena If I plant a whole forest, will that cover the kid side of things too?
@Tvbona No official word. Sets are same length as 360 (or, in fact, a song shorter than most sets on 360’s final leg!).
@toolz2112 I hope so too; that’ll mean somebody’s actually read it, haha! (I’m already moving onto politico-enviro hist of Aust transport.)
And thanks for all the kind words, everyone. I’m a historian of colonial Australia & New Zealand. My book’s on NZ’s former provincial govts.
Here’s more soundcheck news. We did receive word earlier that the band really want to give Troubles another run… https://twitter.com/Nate…
This is Ax here for LA 5. No matter what happens, this is great day for me. My 1st book has been accepted for publication (I’m a historian).
