Newly Unearthed R&H Footage
« on: March 22, 2020, 01:49:27 PM »
Apparently Phil Joanou has been sharing a bunch of never-before-seen outtakes on his Vimeo page.

PS - I still maintain that the 360 Tour's TUF is superior to how the song was performed in the '80s. Fight me.

Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

I could watch The Edge Orchestra forever on the UF. And, that version of Spanish Eyes...I've seen it on youtube...they really mucked it up, but I still love it. Merry Christmas Baby...very cool.

No argument from me here.

I've always hoped there was more footage of them off stage.  I mean there has to be.

I hate the offstage footage of that era. Bono is awful and the other guys can't offset the awful.

Onstage is magic. Sigh.

When Bono slams something over and storms off, you mean? Aw, he was young, angry and stressed. I've seen much worse.

I can think of a couple of onstage antics that showed the band in a worse light. Touring's tough.

I found the opening Q and A scene to be off putting, but the rest i liked.   Would imagine there's hundreds of hours of footage out there that they didn't use.  Or at least dozens.

I haven't gotten around to viewing this footage yet, was just talking about the actual R&H offstage stuff.

I don't mind frustration. I'm just allergic to the I'm-so-great attitude. I sympathize with it, I know it's the veneer of deep insecurity, but I just don't enjoy watching the awkward pompousity.

Also, they just weren't FUN at that stage. Before, yes, after, yes. Then, I guess they were too terrified.

I think I must be the only person alive who found that extremely funny.

Wow, I think we must have seen two different movies. To be fair, you obviously saw the one the critics saw. I don't know what the hell I saw, but I'm glad I did, and not the other one.
