thrill me


i'd be lying if i said the U2 gig was everything i hoped it would be

when it kicked off it felt like u was caught up inside a giant U2 music video (or a Blackberry advert) but, although the stage was stunning enough it didn't feel like every song was connecting with the crowd

at an enormo-gig like this for an enormo-band like U2 i want to be surrounded by people singing every word but the energy wasn't really there

perhaps they feel the need to give you value for money when they choose to play a two hour set, but i think i'd much prefer it if they spent afew extra quid on dazzling lazers and epilepsy inducing holograms and instead played a slimmed down set that is all killer and no filler

that isn't to say it wasn't a good gig, this is all just personal opinion from someone that knows what he likes, and i'd have liked 80's songs, the 90's gimmicks and The Fly and Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me thrown in for good measure

i woke up this morning and decided to create a new playlist for my generic mp3 player, a fantasy U2 setlist put together with careful consideration

if Bono is so concerned with changing the world, perhaps if i sent him a nice letter he may consider changing his setlist
