And I think this tour could tell us a lot. If they are planning to play a lot of rarities and a lot of fan requests and longer sets then I would say that they very much can do another experiential album. Another go at Pop in this day and age could sound incredible

It would never happen, but I'd love to see the PopMart set get recreated to a certain degree with some of the amazing visuals used on the two most recent tours. Could you imagine songs like Mofo, Discotheque, and Lemon getting performed with that and with energy like they had on songs like Exit during TJT30 tour? That would be epic.

I know I'm not craving a new U2 album anymore.
For me U2 reminds me of my youth or adolescence. I'm my bedroom studying for uni
listening to zooropa and achtung baby.
Or even growing up hearing beautiful day on the radio.
Where as now, they can't get on the radio anymore.
At least in the UK.
I've gone passed the excitement stage now.
I probably won't even listen to a new U2 album.

Just because your local radio won't play new U2 songs does not mean such songs are not great and as exciting as anything U2 have done before. If you like U2's older stuff, its highly likely you'll like their newer stuff if you give it chances, many listens. They are still a rock band making great rock music.

There is a disconnect between the fan's sense of their music and the band's sense of their popularity. Of course there is more than one fan response. In general, however, the fans have been less interested in their latest records then the ones in their past. It's not clear the band agrees or even knows this. Or if they do agree, it's nothing they ever are honest about in communication with the fans.

Which leads to this distrust for many of us. We get the Bono PR machine on "this is the next Pop!" every time and then it's so far from that every time. Some basic human honestly is all I ask.
