I think Bono's pretty much confirmed that there will not be any more shows in parts of North America at least next year - or for some time.  This doesn't necessarily mean the end.  Just that they're done with some places for now.
From Philadelphia Night 2:

I doubt Bono was not enthusiastic.

But less energetic? Yes.

It's amazing to see that he used to have enough energy to literally charge a stadium. Now we have to do some of the work ourselves. I noticed a comment or two here with the viewpoint that it was his job to bring everybody to their feet. I would not be proud of having that entitled point of view. After all these years they've brought me to my feet, in so many ways. The guy almost died and something changed. This is an excellent show. If you're thinking, I could sit down here, make a teeeeeeny bit of effort and don't.

Well, your $200 ticket should entitle you to something.  Look, Iím not trying to be cold and heartless.  I just resent being told I have some obligation to display enthusiasm I donít feel just so the show can live up to someone elseís expectations.  I enjoyed the show just as it was, staying seated when those around me were seated.  Iím fine with a U2 show not being the spectacle it once was.  Iím thinking maybe U2 is okay with it too.  Things change.

The attitude here is that I didnít even deserve to be there even though I paid good money for a seat.  Thinking casual fans owe a performance of their own to the hardcore fans.  Thatís entitlement.

Figures that your also ok with people not buying albums(physical or digital) and just streaming. Now its sitting down at a rock concert. Sorry, but neither one is cool or respectful of rock artist and their work.


Wait a minute...is this Jack Black??

I was in seats behind the stage for
DC1 and I refused to sit, but everyone around me was sitting for the non ďhitĒ songs. Everyone sat down for Cedarwood Road and Iris. Then when they played songs like Sunday Bloody Sunday and Pride they stood up Again. I think some people at the show were not big fans and just wanted to
Hear the hits. So if it was a song they didnít know they sat down. One reason I hate having seats!

Were you lower level or upper level for DC 1?
Lower level- we were like 15 rows behind the stage.
