Hey Strange Eye!

How are you?

I just caught the tail-end of the show (not really a U2 fan), but I couldn't help but seeing tons of symbolism that reminded me of the Denver Airport Murals.

Did you catch it?

actually one of my most trafficked pages is my article

Denver Airport Murals Re-visited

Yes I watched the show! VERY interesting symbolism!
I've got screen caps so once I've cropped them down I'll post more on the show and its obvious ASTRONOMY symbollism.

Cheers, Strangey. Didn't watch the concert- haven't been into u2 for ages and what I saw was pretty cringe-worthy. They seem such a tabula rasa for the oligarchs these days, almost like marionettes. Long way from when I saw them in 81 and they just blew everyone away. No I feel like they're carrying all of this baggage that has nothing to do with music.

StrangEye said...

Totally agree with ya there Chris!
To put it bluntly their music in general (barring the odd single) is shitty, barely a shadow of their former glory, which for me would be albums: War, Under a Blood Red Sky, Joshua tree and Rattle & Hum.

Though through their baggage they're quite jacked-in to the world elite and political scene and we can hope that maybe just maybe gives us "common folk" a glimpse behind the curtain, so to speak!
