  • Wont lie im a huge U2 fan. the origin to my music life lies with those two symbols first album i ever purchased was How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, and i have collected their stuff ever since then. wide range of vinyls to every CD Single since 1987. one i am proud of which is the "Wide Awake In Europe" Vinyl one of the 5000 released on record store day.

    Yep, first time it was ever played. I hope they play it on their next tour, whenever that is.

    I would be very surprised to see anything before 2013. Typically this kind of talk starts soon after a tour is done. Then you will hear Bono say something like "Egde is on fire", blah, blah. Trust me, it will be a while :D

    Time to put together a decent cd.. Yes?
    It's two great ones..then one horribly off the beaten path to prove they are still innovators ...
    Then another great cd (2013?) with a stripped down stage and none of the popmart and 360 nonsense..

    Sound about right?

    Look .. Like most of you .. I love U2 when they embrace their core rock and roll song writing...

    "get on your boots" ?
    Not so much...

    Oh yeah, they work at a snail's pace...and Bono will say that its a "true rock record" and it'll be filled with mid tempo songs etc. Can't believe a word out of the man's mouth. :mrgreen:
