I agree with the sentiment here....maybe if the acoustic set was played in auditorium size venues it would be interesting, but I don't think I would be a fan of this 2 show format.

Maybe U2 could be their own opening band.....play a 45 minute acoustic set to open the show, take a break and come back for 1hr45m of some "explosive rock n roll."

Didnt "The Boss" do that on his last tour?

They really don't have any hits that I hate, but I'm not a big fan of Boots or When Love Comes to Town

Nice of them to keep on their "disowning No Line On The Horizon media tour."

Cheers,

NO CRAIC ON THE HORIZON

it was definitely a fans album which hardly any fan liked let alone loved! Good on them for admitting to their failures. It was obviously the springboard to this great new piece of work. One thing that is great about this band is it's ability to succeed with their backs to the wall. How many times have we seen it done? It's pretty amazing after 38 years.

There's an interesting quote from Bono in the Hot Press interview where he expands on Larry's thoughts on the album...

"Oh, I love that album. He doesn't (points at Larry). I do. Because he's a songwriter. Larry likes songs."

For me, that was my biggest complaint about the album. When it hit, it hit pretty well. Unfortunately, there were also a lot of songs that were either pretty mediocre or hardly constituted a song at all.

I hate to say it, but this sounds ideal for just waiting for the inevitable Blu-Ray set, to see both shows.

There must be something from Coldplay Ghost Stories

Major Minus from MX would work.

I think The Eagles are doing this.

Yikes! Avoid this completely then!
