History repeats itself with this band. It's OK if they don't release an album for a long time. The issue as I see it is the repeated promises and let downs.

The reason that the screen is inactive at the start is because it's much more effective when Streets hits. It's the big arrival of the album. The entire point of the show. It's an incredible moment. Surely this is obvious, no?

I understand their idea, and they did the same thing on I+E waiting for Iris before the video screens kicked in, but the flaw on this tour is they're playing in venues three times the size of the arenas they played in 2015 and a good portion of the crowd can't see much for the first five songs.  That's nearly a quarter of the show.  They need to think about these issues if they must insist on playing stadiums, which is the default venue for U2.

Exactly. If they were on the main stage(10 feet high or whatever), then I wouldn't have an issue with it, but on that b-stage that's about 5 feet high they're not visible to a huge chunk of GA or are specks in the nosebleeds. Might as well be outside the stadium listening. For a song or two I could see it, but 5 songs is too big a chunk of the setlist to not have any visuals.


While their support act plays, they utilize just a small portion of the screen on the right side, with a video of the band on stage....

U2 should at least have THAT on screen during their 3-5 song pre-JT set....  And then, when they finally go FULL-SCREEN for Streets, it would still have the same dramatic impact.

everyone was happy;  But Silly and Stupid warned Larry and Adam that, once a week, they have a family reunion.  They would have to put up with them having their huge family over at their houses, and even when they're on the road.  Silly and Stupid's crazy Aunt Shithead was hard to deal with, but they

If ever there was a tour, to treat the hardcore fans, to some rare gems, this was the tour to do it.

Interesting take, Smee. I see it as the exact opposite, though: If there were ever a tour to please hardcore fans, a stadium show focusing on a 30 year-old album would not be it at all. And now they're dropping the very tracks that hardcore fans should want to hear, like ASOH and TLT. I swear, if they could they'd also drop Exit and RHMT, but doing so would mean going back on their promise of what this tour would be about.

Oh wait.


the tour is a 30th anniversary tour of JT. they didn't go back on that promise by a long stretch. Exit seems to be one of the ones they're glad to play again.
