2022 U2.com subscription gift Achtung Baby 30 Live
« on: March 07, 2022, 05:31:44 PM »
As Aaron mentioned on u2songs.com . . . . . of all the tracks on Achtung Baby . . . . . the track So Cruel has been played live the least number of times.  I wonder if a "full song" live version of So Cruel will be on the Achtung Baby 30 Live CD Set.  I hope so.

Now we know that the September 9, 1992 live performance [only Bono] of So Cruel will be on the Achtung Baby 30 Live CD.  I still have not yet decided to start a new subscription.  If you paid for the 2022 U2.com subscription, have you received the CD yet?

I have not received my CD's yet.  At present, members can download 6 of the tracks from u2.com, but "So Cruel" is not one of them (yet).

Despite being listed on U2gigs (which maybe sourced the Pimm book) as a full performance, it appears Bono flubs the lyrics and combines the second and third verses, and it's still just Bono.  All that said, hearing one of the two lost performances of "So Cruel" - in amazing quality no less - is quite the treat.

Also makes you wonder how many full shows they have in the vaults that they could release.
