PostSubject: U2 sells out in 1 hour   Thu Jun 30, 2011 8:36 pm


U2 will be in Nashville Saturday night, July 2nd at Vanderbilt Stadium... it's the first time they've included Tennessee in their tour in 29 years... tickets went on sale last year, on Friday October 29th, and sold out in 1 hour... they've added around 10,000 seats to the field area to bring attendance to around 51,000... i'm still wondering why they didn't use LP (Titans) Stadium? it holds about 69,000, and could have held 80 for a concert... but oh well, i've got my ticket so fuck it!! i'll take extra batteries in case my camera runs low!!!!!!!



U2 - Pride (In The Name Of Love)






This song had been intended to be about Ronald Reagan's pride in America's military power but after the lyricist Bono had been influenced by Stephen B. Oates's book 'Let The Trumpet Sound: A Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.' and a biography of Malcolm X; these caused him to ponder the different sides of the civil rights campaigns, the violent and the non-violent. In subsequent years, Bono has expressed his dissatisfaction with the lyrics, which he describes, along with another Unforgettable Fire song "Bad", as being "left as simple sketches". He says he was swayed by The Edge and producers Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, who played down the need to develop the lyrics as they thought their impressionistic nature would give added forcefulness to the song's feeling, particularly when heard by non-English speakers.

"I looked at how glorious that song was and thought: 'What the fuck is that all about?' It's just a load of vowel sounds ganging up on a great man. It is emotionally very articulate - if you didn't speak English."
—Bono , U2 by U2


The song contains the erroneous reference to King's shooting as "Early morning, April 4", when it was actually after 6 p.m. Bono acknowledges the error and in live performances he occasionally changes the lyric to "Early evening...".

Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders sang backing vocals on the recording. She was married to Jim Kerr of Simple Minds at the time and she is credited as "Christine Kerr".
