she liked Imaginary Men best of all

I was of the opinion it was out of control

Last weekend Jill and I watched U2 Go Home: Live from Slane Castle. It got me listening to old school U2 this week and reminded me how damn awesome that early stuff is: Gloria, Out of Control, I Will Follow, Two Hearts Beat as One. They have all held up as good as new. Each song that came up on the playlist made me giddy with delight as I screamed along with the songs.

I love this performance of Out of Control from that show: Bono’s introduction of them as a baby band with local references to Malahide and Artane, thanking their parents for lending them money to get started, thanking the fans for making them rich!:

Apparently last time they played this live was 2005 which is just insane. It is such a crowd pleaser and should definitely be back in the setlist this summer. Hear me boys?

One thought on “I was of the opinion it was out of control

  1. I’m telling you- a nice anonymous letter to Paul McGuinness with a dream setlist for the tour will do the job!

    I can just imagine the boys discussing what to put in the show and Larry going “Hey, remember back during the Vertigo leg we did In a Little While and we invited that nice chap Brandon Flowers on stage? That was quite magical, maybe we should do that again.”
