Wow, that was a great and intelligent interview. The questions and the answers.

Great interview.  One question- Is this "brush with mortality" a reference to the attack in Nice that Bono was near or something else?

I think he refers to Bono's bike accident.

No, it's a separate incident from the bike accident that Edge alludes to. Could be his heart, maybe a mild heart attack, cancer detected, all speculation, but at that age what else could make him consider his mortality.

Glad Andy Greene asked about the Pop album and that The Edge has finally heard about its cult following.  Hopefully that will mean we'll hear some songs like Gone again.

Also, I'm glad he brought up being done playing The Joshua Tree songs on the SOE tour.  I hope they cut out anything from JT and before.  It should be songs after they got "experience" so post-80s U2.

Also, Lady with the Spinning Head would be awesome to hear.

For all Edge's talk, I'll bet half my kingdom that we'll get One, WOWY, Streets, Beautiful Day, Pride, and IWF on the next tour.

Wouldn't doubt it. Pride is too relevant with the world. Streets and WOWY will absolutely stay if they want any casuals to be remotely interested in the show. Beautiful day is a guarantee. One might be a rotational closer and I will follow could be dropped.

Yes, but if IWF is dropped it will be in favor of OOC or NYD, which is the same thing. #PotatoTomato

I don't think it's heath related while I realize Neice was more than a year ago some people are not so specific when talking about events in the past.  The older I get the faster time goes and I forget if it's been a year or 3 years ago

Edge's words are always so carefully weighed it seems.  I'm starting to like Adam's interview style best.

The shooting in Nice was on July 14, 2016.  So that's well within the timeline. If that was indeed his brush with death, he probably doesn't want to mention it specifically. He doesn't want to seem like he's making the incident more "about him", and less about the people who were actually killed.  That would probably be in poor taste to victimize himself.

If it was a health scare, he'll eventually say something to someone.  Probably in an interview.  He will eventually blab.

We are going to play Europe and North America next year.

The level of disrespect to Australia is staggering.

You're spot on with the former statement.

Good interview next tour will certainly be something to look forward to. Whatever the scare was I am sure he is fine. As we age reflection especially our own mortality has consideration.The next album as was mentioned will be a reflection on that. Bono looks great to me and can't wait to see them again.

I think U2s days of supporting new albums with stadium tours are over. They just don't go well in a stadium.

I would consider the EODM concert attack to be a brush with mortality...plus Nice. Plus him feeling connected to all the other ongoing attacks...

It would be unheard of to do a show without at least "Where the Streets Have No Name."

Yeah. I think that maybe we've done one tour without "Where the Streets Have No Name" in the set.

Edge shouldn't forget just how f****** awesome their shows from before The Joshua Tree were. You don't need Streets. U2 makes the show works -- not the most popular songs.

Streets is to U2 what Born to Run is to Springsteen. Can't imagine a tour concert without it.
