Possibly named Zoo.com or Zootube and be streamed live on the internet?

A mind blowing, innovated tour featuring unprecedented stage design and technology. This could capture the world's attention, bringing U2 back into the spotlight.

I believe this type of exposure could bring U2 back into favour with the youth and critics, and hopefully they would follow up this Tour with a radical and daring Zooropa-type album that is recorded on instinct - all while on tour, just like the original Zooropa.

This would blow everyone's minds and U2 would retire on a huge high - in a blaze of glory - a big f*** YOU to the apple saga induced haters who said they are washed up boring old dad-rock who need to retire, you Happy now?!

They would then step down being praised world-wide by critics as the greatest band to ever grace this earth EVER. They would be the coolest cats in the music business.

Couldn't agree more. Couple that with an album release of a moody Songs of Ascent style album that they DON'T tour behind, and it could resurrect their reputation.

Whether it would work commercially is another question, but that should be beside the point at this stage.

I don't think this is going to happen. U2 are artist and are far more interested in writing and producing new music and performing that new music in a live setting. The Joshua Tree tour 2017 was a one off and happened because the band did not have Songs Of Experience ready yet. An unfortunate thing that happened with the Joshua Tree tour 2017 is it ended up weakening demand for the Experience And Innocence Tour in North America. That is certainly an aspect they do not want to repeat.

The band is interested it new songs, albums and tours for that music. That's most likely where U2 will be in 2021/2022. Also, we have got to stop this non-sense about the band retiring. I don't think they will consider that until Larry's has passed his 80th birthday and even then, they may continue. This is what they love doing. It is not a day job for them. Its what they did for fun in High School and they are still doing it and will continue to do it.

We're going to blow the youths' minds by playing nostalgia albums from 20 years ago?

It could be fun, but you're dreaming if you think this will, like, convert the haters. Lol.

Yes, nothing convinces the kids you're cool like touring for a 30-year old album.

I'd rather have a new album and tour.  They can include a few rotating gems to keep people guessing.
