There needs to be more options. I'd love a tour like that. The Elevation tour was awesome. The May 7, 2001 Columbus Ohio show was the greatest show I have ever seen by U2 or any artist. I saw the Elevation tour 5 times. ZOO TV tour was great to, I saw that four times.

Too soon, but looking at those set lists it was way better than the last two indoor shows. And on that tour there was some spontaneity.

At this point I feel like I'll probably hit every tour they do at least once.  It's hard to imagine skipping a tour now, since I've seen every tour from Zoo TV on.  (I did skip a leg of 360 when it came back through, which may have been a mistake, but I saw the first US leg.)

That said, there is little more they could do to dissuade me from going than an ATYCLB anniversary tour.  Elevation was great at the time, but the only songs I would have much interest in would be Kite and New York.  I mean, having a stretch of live material that includes Wild Honey, Peace On Earth, and Grace does not make for a compelling setlist.

Just saw a movie last night that included "Wild Honey" in the soundtrack.  The movie was "The Big Sick" and it was pretty good.  It was a cover of the tune--not sure who did it.

It would be boring and the songs have been played to death over the past 20 years. The ATYCLB songs worked best on the first tour they were played - when they were fresh. The whole idea of anniversary tours is lame and basically everything U2 used not to be.

I'd much rather hear new work than an anniversary tour. Sounds like JT30 was done well but I'd rather it just be a one-off.

But... yeah... I'd go.

I wouldn't go to either one, so don't care.

What if u2 is scrapping a 2019 EI tour in favor of a 10 year old “No Line On the Horizon” tour.

Rush did this.  Famously, it was also their farewell tour.
