I would be fine with this. Achtung Baby is their best album and Zooroopa is possibly their 3rd best.  Pop is also under-rated.  Hope it happens but not sure if it will.

I wonder if they will feel compelled to do something like this since they have created precedence with the Joshua Tree Anniversary Tour? That was a filler tour that they had to commit to with Live Nation since SOE wasnt ready. Im not sure U2 ever had really thought this was something they would ever do (going retrospective) or that was what they would be about. Interesting to see if it happens.

I hate this idea, I would go bankrupt and lose my job following them all over the world for this tour, lets do it!

It would be good but I doubt they'd do three albums in their entirety: if they were going to do a 90s night, a few of the songs (rather than the instrumentals, although Lets Go Native would be cool) from Original Soundtracks would be cool.

I like the idea, but I wasn't around for the first Joshua tree tour, so the nostalgia of the tour never hit me. Instead I felt really out of place at the show and with my generation, so I would like to say, please no more nostalgia or old album tours. That's just my opinion on the matter.

Hard to imagine a show that opens with Achtung Baby songs followed by Pop and Zooropa songs.  It's a recipe for a half empty arena for the last hour. Sure, the half would be most of the people who frequent this board, so I suspect people will disagree. Pop and Zooropa didn't sell 10 million albums together, while ATYCLB sold 11.5. So, maybe they could open with two popular staples?

They'd have to structure it backwards to keep a crowd in the venue.

Deep down, I just want them to put together one "last" rock (bass, drum, guitar, vocals - that's it) album, recorded on an analog board with everyone in the studio playing together until they could play one take of the song just right. Literally go to a garage in the south of France and write the songs, then do a series of "one take" shots, and with no announcement, put out the record.  It just shows up at radio stations and online on a Friday afternoon so people can hear it on their own all weekend without having to listen to what critics have to say until Monday.

You know they have literally never done this don't you?

I do.  I think it would be the most experimental type of record they could do at this stage of their career.
