Arrow U2 -- East Rutherford, NJ -- July 20th, 2011

Holy dog shit, 26 songs! So glad they finished with an old song rather than that buzzkill bore of a new song. Finally I get to witness a song from October, and Zooropa itself was amazing! You can tell the NLOTH songs are pretty tired out at this point, they really should have tried out more songs from that record...Fez, Stand Up Comedy, White As Snow, Cedars Of Lebanon ...all never even tried. Anyway, what a great night.


Even Better Than The Real Thing

Miss Sarajevo
Zooropa
City Of Blinding Lights
Vertigo
I'll Go Crazy If I Donít Go Crazy Tonight
Sunday Bloody Sunday

Several observations:
  • Looks like "Scarlet" is becoming somewhat of a staple on this leg. That's cool.
  • Looks like they're sticking with the "open with four songs from Achtung Baby" format. That's VERY cool.
  • Looks like they busted out "Magnificent" this time, instead of one of the crappier songs from NLOTH. Nice. I love that song.
  • They really need to stop doing "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me". That song has always been boring as hell.
  • Thank hell they didn't close with "Moment of Surrender" (although they *almost* did). An older song is a better choice, but I still wish they'd go back to "40".
  • Overall, this looks like a great set. I'm really getting stoked for next Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
The last time I saw them was in the old Giants Stadium in 2009. Glad your experience there was similarly awesome to the one I had.

You just shut up right now. My little swimmers don't need any further encouragement.

They do seem to get all "let's find the egg" every time Bono is around, though.

Fair enough. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Personally, I love Ultraviolet, and to be honest, I liked it even more after I saw them do it live in East Rutherford a few years ago. It was honestly one of the highlights of the set for both me and my wife. The light show was just incredible.


EDIT: How in the world could you not love this? I still get goosebumps just thinking about it...

Change that to "1980-1991" and you've got yourself a deal. Achtung Baby is one of their best albums, IMO.

UV is ok, not a bad song, but I'm into the "non-hits" of Achtung Baby a lot more. I'd give a left arm to see Acrobat played live.

Oh, hell yes. No argument from me there whatsoever. Give me that, or "Wild Horses" or "So Cruel" any fucking day!

Let's not forget about Love Is Blindness, a simply other-worldly tune.

They need to just play the entire album live. Fair enough?
