U2 have never been experimental, they have explored the experiments of others and used them to produce their own sound.

How about Hawkmoon 269? THAT would be true genius!

My latest controversial u2 thought. I thought the Big Screen on TJT30th shows added NOTHING to the experience. I was kind of hoping for a back to basics stage from the off, like the original tour, when it was just all about the songs.

Well, I thought it was very pretty, and showed a lot of our desert vista. BUT, I would have liked to see more of the band on the screen...especially since my seats were nosebleed! My arms are STILL sore from holding binoculars all night. I must say, though, that I thought Morleigh was quite sexy!

I think Smee is right about the screen. At the start of the show it was just me (alright, "us") and the band. The times the screen added something was with songs with just a background.

I had a sort of nosebleed seats. Not as much as you, Riffraff, but I was far away enough to be not able to recognize the bandmembers than by their instrument and hat. So sometimes it was welcome to see them on the screen.

Well, from a female (and former musician) point of view...I'd like to see the band on the screen more...I need to see them actually playing their instruments...this fascinates me.

I fixed my problem with Trip Through Your Wires with thanks to that screen. It showed what The Edge exactly did. Wait! Former musician? What did you play?

I played guitar and piano (quite well, too, if I may be so bold!), until my left hand got a bit crushed in a car door. owwwww

Ah, you did a "Bono"! You can't play anymore, or just not as good as you used to?

Great topic Matty!

My latest controversial thought...carpool karaoke ;)
I don't watch his show, but I like the guy on carpool, so I am a fan and then I just saw the latest episode with FooFighters...the below was my post on the video and a link to it You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login:

It was one of the best James and team have done, so nice job! I will admit, I now have an odd love/worry hope that U2 hops in the car ;)

i would think u2 will eventually do this. surprised Corden hasn't signed them up yet, as being english i would think u2 would be a band he grew up with. justin beiber and harry styles don't need to be on a third time- get new musicians on.

Yeah, kind of a Bono...the hand never really recovered...a doctor YEARS later said I should have had surgery, but the doc back then just splinted it and sent me home. grrrrr

I have a hard time picturing Larry having a good time at Carpool Karaoke.  The rest of the guys would probably roll with it.
