Quick Tip, From One Fan to Another

U2 360 DVD promotional photoDo this:

1.) Put on the best pair of headphones you own. Not little earbuds. Real, honest-to-goodness headphones.

2.) Cue up the live version of “Ultraviolet” from the Pasadena DVD/concert.

3.) Turn up the volume as high as your ears will let you.

4.) Turn off the lights. Put yourself in complete darkness.

5.) Hit PLAY.

6.) Close your eyes and soak it all in.

Awesome, isn’t it? I’ll bet you can feel the desperation in Bono’s voice. In the song itself.

7.) Repeat as necessary/desired.

(PS – I hope “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” has the same feeling on the current tour.)

    That is an excellent tip. Fans would do well to heed it.

    Bonus tip: “With or Without You” sounds really great this way, too. Highly recommend it.

    I’m on vacation and didn’t bring my headphones since earbuds are easier to store! I’ll hav to try this when I get home…
