U2 Live In Chicago.

Fri Feb 16, 2007 5:16 am

Watching a DVD of U2 live in Chicago (which is utterly amazing!).

It is filmed on Bono's birthday but he says "Happy Birthday JOJO (not Bono))", who or what is Jojo?

JoJo is Bono's daughter, born on Bono's birthday. Her name is actually Jordan; Bono calls her JoJo.

I have that DVD. Quite a show they put on! Haven't seen them live since the Popmart Tour (in '97). That was an amazing show as well.

Hmmm, didn't find the DVD that interesting (and yes I've seen the show)

Trust me, if you're sat in complete darkness half pissed with a bottle of Pinot watching it on a 52" Plasma with a 16 speaker surround sound system it is VERY INTERESTING!

Saw them in Dublin, couldn't see a thing - too far back. Bit like seeing Robbie, too many sodding people. Mind you, the stadium in this Chicago show does look very good as seating all around.

One thing I will say is Adam Clayton has aged big time.

He's always looked significantly older than the others, for some reason (by always, I mean since The Joshua Tree, approximately).

He's also the one who you always see smoking in interviews and stuff.

Though, I think I heard that he's finally getting married, so maybe that's what's causing the rapid aging  Smile

Oh look out, here we go. Bono's preaching about world poverty, knew it would only be a question of time. Is he related to Bob Geldof?

He means "live" not "lives," as in currently, right now, in the present.

That is true. He is referring to a live show (as opposed to a recording) that is in Chicago.

Maybe it's just me, but saying that you're watching a DVD of U2 live in Chicago is pretty damn clear.

Bono starting to show a little bit of wear and tear himself. Edge and Larry Mullen both seem to have the fountain of youth, though.

Oh, and I've seen them twice in Portland; the Elevation tour in 2001 and Vertigo in 2005. Neither is likely to ever be topped.

No doubt - a great live performance - caught on tape - disc - whatever...

They go back in time on this one- Electric Comany - An Cat Dubh - New Year's Day...

PRIDE

40

They mixed some good old "raw" stuff in Chicago - with the new.

Great performance - I like it alot...

Says "U2 Live In Chicago" on the box of the DVD, don't split hairs with me, split them with whoever made the DVD sleeve!

Saw The Edge in the Clarence Hotel (owned by U2) in Dublin a few years back, he was leaving out the back door. Probably saw me coming!
