I've got a nice POP feeling
« on: February 08, 2018, 07:24:59 AM »
U2 has abandoned their album Pop, it seems. Even OS1 and Zooropa has had more attention then POP, with Miss Sarajevo/Your Blue Room and Stay/Zooropa/The Wanderer.

The rareties that they have done during I+E as a surprise:
- Zoo station
- Magnificent
- Two Hearts Beat As One
- Miracle Drug
- Love comes to town
The rareties that they have played more times (more in the standard setlist) during I+E:
- Gloria
- Electric Co.
- Zooropa
- October

The rareties they have done during TJT30:
- MLK
- A sort of homecoming (8 times, I thought it was more frequent (I've seen it!!!)
And more frequent:
- Miss Sarajevo
- The 2nd half of The Joshua Tree
- Ultra Violet

The rareties they have played during 360:
- Wanderer
- Unforgettable Fire
- Love Rescue Me
- Your Blue Room
- Stay
- Zooropa
- Scarlet
- Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me

So we have some rareties from the following albums:
- Boy (2 rareties, 1 warhorse)
- October (3 rareties, 0 warhorses)
- War (1 rarety + Drowning man snippet, 3 warhorses (New Years Day and 40?))
- TUF (3 rareties, 2 warhorses)
- The Joshua Tree (7 rareties, 4 warhorses)
- Rattle and Hum (1 rarety, 3 frequent played original R&H songs)
- Achtung! (2 rareties, One warhorse, 4 maybe-warhorses)
- Zooropa (3 rareties, 0 warhorses)
- Pop (0 rareties, 0 warhorses)
- ATYCLB (2 warhorses, 1 sometimes-played-but-who-cares?)
- How To Dismantle (1 rarety, 2 warhorses)
- No Line On The Horizon (1 rarety, 0 warhorse)
- SOI Deluxe (10 played)
- SOE (time will tell)

So, they've treated us with a lot rareties from a lot of albums. Some could be better: ATYCLB, Bomb and No Line. But they haven't done anything with Pop!

I heard Edge ahs tried to convince the band to play The Playboy Mansion during TJT30. Could it be time that they'll revisit that album finally with more plays (like October and Gloria)? Maybe more from No Line (a good shot could be Magnificent and Moment of Surrender).

I'm holding my breath for those No Line songs and POP!

Who has a good feeling, too? :)

O, and I hope to give the Pop-lovers who aren't going to the tour a weird feeling in their stomach ;)

Well, you know me...I never give up on hoping to hear Hawkmoon 269. But, I'd also really like to see ASOH, Gloria, and ANYTHING (everything!) from POP. And, it would do my heart good to see UV again, even though I did just see it on JT30.

Nice found!

Never seen this in high quality. Does someone knows where to get it in this quality?

Unfortunately no shot of Adam with the mirrorball.

Plenty of love on the comment section of the FB post. I am extremely pleased to see that Pop has developed a growing cult following among fans.

they "acknowledged" Pop on 360 during Crazy Tonight with the Disco and Please snippets.

and they also "acknowledged" it by soundchecking a much different sounding Mofo on the Vertigo tour, as well as playing Disco. at a few shows.

Was that mofo soundcheck real?

Maybe Hold Me, [...], Kill Me was the closest to the acknowledging.

Maybe that's why U2 kept silence about the album: if the mother says:"don't get that cookie", and puts it high on a shelf, the child just wants it just so badly (more and more). And  when mother finally gives it, it's the most amazing cookie the child has ever had.

Mother = U2
Cookie = Pop
Child = us
When = Experience + Innocence Tour
