Notes On Chicago Night 1

We’re told by our elite ground forces that Chris Martin watched last night’s Chicago show from inside the ellipse, and that many fans were seen getting their pictures taken with him. If you’ve got one, we’d love to see it (preferably one where you’re giving him bunny ears).

Also, our reporters say that they don’t think that the first night in Chicago was actually filmed — the cameras were present, but it looked more like a dry-run to stage the filming, and Bono reportedly wasn’t “on” in the way he would be if he were being immortalized. The next two nights are much more likely to comprise the backbone of any possible DVD release. (Other sources say the camera crew took the opportunity to film and interview fans for the DVD.)

  4. They were definately filming fans after the show on their opinion. I saw quite a few drunk fans shouting at the camera about how NYD and SBS were the greatest parts of the show. They also had one camera crew asking people to sing Vertigo. Most fans just got out “uno dos tres catorce” and ran off with a possible “hola” thrown in. I didn’t see anyone sing the whole thing.

  8. Once again, JIM DEROGATIS gives U2 a big ‘thumbs down’ in reviewing the chicago vertigo concert in his article for the Chicago Sun-Times entitled “The Rev. Bono” (currently linked in the Departures section of u2log.com). This is the same guy who reviewed HTDAAB with the a headline of “ATOMIC DOG”. He clearly has something against Bono. It’s a disappointing article this time ’round too. Once again I wonder whether the article was written before actually attending the concert! Tall poppy syndrome is such an easy way to get people to read your article, I guess… God Bless Freedom of Speech!

  10. We were outside the hotel monday afternoon and saw the edge who posed for a few photos (only five fans were there) an hour or so later bono came out and signed for about 4 minutes. He talked to a select few for an extended period including three youngsters next to us. He asked them if they were in a band. One kid responded “sometimes”. He said what is the name of your band? he said “sometimes”… Bono said “hmmm. that’s your name? pretty cool i guess”. the others in the group were giving him a hard time for not being able to say anything. i have to say i was a little underwhelmed. for someone who stalked bono in chi town during the popmart tour and sat outside the recordind studio and his home last spring, i think i might be getting over the celebrity thing a bit. that might have something to do with the fact that he looked at my membership card in disgust when i held it out for him to sign. adam came out about 5 minutes after bono and booked it for the car!
