One of my absolute favorite moments of the Philly show was the end of Red Hill Mining Town. Bono was killing it, and really into the performance (even more so than usual!). He did a little wind up step before the last note of the song, and then was obviously very pleased with how the whole thing went. Adam thought it was good, too!
Please take some time to see your favourite band U2 getting soaked in the Berlin rain. I have 70 photo’s up on my Flickr account in reasonable resolution! Lots of Edge and Adam, Bono and even Larry is in there when he finally quit hiding behind his cymbals.
Sharing individual shots soon ! So you can share those amongst theTumblrsphere.
I have not written a poem for Adam Clayton’s birthday. :(
Instead, I hope everyone will appreciate the way he never once let this renegade, stage-storming fan out of his sight during a performance of “One” in Paris, in 2015. Bono rescued the guy from security and made him sit down, and Adam was pretty much “one false move and I’ll be your worst nightmare” for the duration of the song. (x)
As if we needed more reasons to love and respect him. And we know he’s done this kind of thing before.
Happy birthday to our guardian-angel, silver-fox, authoritative-punk hero, Adam Clayton!
I couldn’t figure out what was going on during Trip Through Your Wires in Philly, that there was not one mention of Edge’s sexiness. Naturally, I had to find a video. In the middle of the song, Bono started talking about how Larry and Edge were once in a country and western band, and that the fellow whose band it was told them “not to stick with the rock, because if you get into real trouble, the thing that will get them out is a waltz.” Edge immediately corrected that it was a fox trot.
