U2 fanaticism follows

EEEEEEEEEEEE! U2 SLANE CASTLE IS BEING RELEASED ON DVD! EEEEEEEEEEEE! If you haven't guessed, I'm very excited. The setlist is;

· Elevation
· Beautiful Day
· Until The End Of The World
· New Year's Day
· Out Of Control
· Sunday Bloody Sunday
· Wake Up Dead Man
· Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of
· Kite
· Angel Of Harlem
· Desire
· Staring At The Sun
· All I Want Is You
· Where The Streets Have No Name
· Mysterious Ways
· Pride (In The Name Of Love)
· Bullet The Blue Sky
· With Or Without You
· One
· Walk On

Honestly, they need more variety in their setlist, but it's definitely not bad. There was a TV special on last Christmas that I taped, and so I already have some of those songs - Beautiful Day and Walk On in particular are great. I'm looking forward to seeing Kite. But they need to bring back some less common stuff - 11 O'clock Tick Tock, Exit, Seconds, Love Is Blindness, Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car, Last Night On Earth, Surrender, et cetera. And where's Bad? How could they not play Bad? That's a masterpiece. That's the best song ever. HOW COULD THEY HAVE NOT PLAYED IT AT SLANE? The fiends. And the first Slane concert featured A Sort Of Homecoming, which I really wanted to see. I guess I'll just have to get a bootleg of it.

    Holy fucking shit, the Irish knocked off England in the cricket! Forget when they turfed out the hopeless Pakistan in 2007; this is something else.…
