Someone in a U2 fansite posted last week that the U2 SiriusXM station should be coming soon, according to a response from SiriusXM. I had it in the back of my mind since December when the announcement was made. I expected something in time for the fall. Yesterday news trickled in that the station would start on Wednesday July 1st at 3pm. That news quickly disappeared and I thought that it was pushed back. Woke up today to a Rolling Stone article with The Edge making the official announcement. All of the programming and live vault sounds excellent!

U2 featuring Elton John covering T. Rex’s Bang A Gong (Get It On). It’s going to be on the T. Rex tribute album due out on the first Friday of September. The late Hal Wilner produced the double album.

I’d love a Zoo TV anniversary tour and I think Live Nation will definitely push for one. We’ll see what happens with live concerts in the next year or two.

I’m happy that U2 X Radio exists, but the complete lack of any unreleased concerts leaves a lot to be desired. I’ve tuned into Bono’s show where he interviewed Chris Rock and enjoyed it. I’m wondering if there will be a new episode for this month, as they promised. The Edge’s show has had the better guests so far: David Byrne and Tom Morello. And the guest DJ sets have been interesting. Matthew McConaughey was “himself” Introducing his favorite U2 songs and was the best one. It was a fucking trip! St. Vincent also had great selections.

There’s also a show that has U2 fans selecting their 5 favorite songs and they do a brief introduction. So far about 25 fans have been selected and the program has more episodes than any other on the channel.

My theory is that U2 will unleash the live vault when they need to go off to record and/or tour and will abandon their interview shows for a long period. Or when that 4 month free trial runs out for a lot folks.

In simplistic terms, the U2 Sirius channel is pretty much the complete U2 discography including fanclub releases on random....mixed in with some bands that U2 admires. I’m glad that I’m not chained to the station with FOMO. I’ve probably listened to it a half dozen times, since it began on July 1st. The best thing is that a lot of the programs are On Demand.

I guess there is some talk about a All That You Can't Leave Behind anniversary release.

Yes, that’s right. I forgot to mention that. I’d expect an official announcement before the end of the month for a late October release. It’s funny how they’re picking & choosing which records to give the deluxe treatment. They curiously skipped over Pop and Rattle & Hum. Maybe they’re planning on doing those anniversaries in 2027 and 2028, respectively, to always have revenue coming in.

Anyways, there’s been talk about which Elevation Tour show to expect in the deluxe set, if there is a show to be included. It’d be really lazy to take the Boston show DVD and put it on an abbreviated 80 minute cd. And the Slane Castle show DVD was released on cd for a fanclub only release, so there’s a chance they could “forget” about that exclusivity and release it with this set. I’d love a show from the 2nd Leg in NYC right after 9/11.

Or they release a DVD of their 3rd Leg opener in South Bend, IN which has surfaced on YouTube as proshot. It’s a tiny gym auditorium and the heart shaped stage barely fits. Here’s the strange thing about that show: I remember listening to that show as it happened, but I never knew that proshot video existed. I don’t know who broadcast that show on the radio. Edit: OK, I read some of the comments and people are commenting that they watched the stream of this concert as it happened. Maybe my bandwidth wasn’t good enough, so I only got to hear the audio.

Such a fucking disappointment when you compare it to other bands. Plus, this looks like an extremely lazy effort. The Boston show, which I attended all 4 on that tour, has been available on DVD. They filmed nights 1 & 2. Nights 3 & 4 were amazing. Go figure! This time we get the audio for the show with no new bonus tracks because there’s about 4 songs that were omitted for the release way back in 2001/02.

The rumors were that it would feature one of the NYC post 9/11 shows at MSG or something from the 3rd Leg of the Elevation Tour in the fall of 2001.

Even the outtakes were released several years ago on a U2 official fanclub release. Someone posted a massive wall of text on a U2 fan site of all of the working titles and outtakes taken from some old magazine picture that featured it. Nothing from the list made it to the release! No one needs U2 remixes, but they’re always quick to release them for some reason.

2 Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of

I hear you on the re-mixes. I don't know if I will buy this or not. (Another BS thing is a booklet with a bunch of photos. I was listening to my Led Zeppelin cds the other day and thought how nice it would be to read something about the recording. Nope - just a bunch of pictures in the slim booklet.)

Been a big U2 fan since the mid 80’s however I didn’t see them live until pop it blew me away. The songs were so good live. To me it took balls of steel the pivot U2 took from achtung to zooropa and pop. I give them a lot of credit as they could have continued in the pop rock vein.. I respect them for taking this course and I appreciate it!!

That Boston DVD is one of my favorite concert DVDs. I wish I would have seen them during the Elevation tour- but never saw them, until the 2017 Joshua Tree anniversary tour. Definitely glad I spent the dough to see that show - well worth it.

 

During 80's and 90's I never had a real desire to catch them live - I do remember the wife and I talking about seeing them during the Elevation tour, though.

Also a few months ago I purchased No Line on the Horizon -- a new copy of the clear vinyl  on Deep Discount was super cheap - never listened to it before in its entirety. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It sounds pretty great, production wise.

That Joshua Tree show was amazing. Just as good was the 360 show, at least the night I saw. I go way back with U2. I'm about the same age as them, so lot of common ground musically. They played a tiny bar in Seattle between Boy & October (famously, the handwritten lyrics for October got stolen here). I was 20 & couldn't get in due to liquor laws at the time. I made up for it on the War tour. Saw them in a 2000 seat theater. For a long time I kind of went back & forth on them in direct correlation to the amount Bono talked, haha. I think my favorite show was the arena Zoo TV show with Pixies opening but its close. They definitely have the stadium spectacle down, performance & sound-wise. Even the Stones lifted some concepts from them like the small stage in the crowd.

You know some years back that suitcase was found in someone's attic and returned to Bono.

I re-checked out U2360° at the Rose Bowl from the library a couple of days ago - I know I watched it a few years ago, but that was before I purchased and listened to the No Line record a few times. Figured I would revisit the dvd. 

 

Also checked out the songbook/sheet music of Achtung Baby -- which I just got on vinyl (I never owned the CD outright - since my brother had it, I always borrowed it from him, when I wanted to listen to it.) Look forward to tooling around with my guitar while listening and perusing the book.

Calvino, check out link below. It's stunning. I would love for them to do this version in concert. I think Edge is a great singer in his own right. Maybe not as messianic as Bono but that's ok in my book. Hope you like.

Ha! That exactly how I sound when play those tunes - not! Thanks for the links, they are great versions.

My m.o. is to head down to my basement after my kids go to bed, have a smoke and beer or two - and attempt to play along with the music. Do enjoy the hell out of it, though.
