go on unscripted and make it up as the show moves along, taking a request or two or three from the crowd and feel confident enough to whip off any tune in their trunk. oh wait, that's Pearl Jam ... but it would be nice to see U2 try it ... once?

U2 always campaign for social justice.

Is it justice to their fans who lined up many hours, to have fans who lined up much later but get a better view of the band because of the b-stage/heart tip/ramp?

Is it justice to these same fans to have U2 waste precious seconds setting up and moving in and out of the b-stage when this precious time could have meant half a song or one song more per concert?

It's time to let that social justice principle trickle on to their shows.


Just a thought.

Cheers,

You said it - precious seconds. Did you like the Zootv concert? Did you like Popmart? Have you liked any tour U2 has ever done from 1992 down to our present day?

All tours have had some form of B Stage / Ramp etc

I never got to see Zoo TV live but I saw a number of vids and they were great.

I watched Popmart and it was the most incredible spectacle I have ever seen.

I know the place of U2's b-stage in everything, but I think we could squeeze out a song or two from them.

During Popmart, they spend so much time in that motorized lemon.  They could have actually not done that gimmick and just played a song instead.

It also took precious seconds from the end of WOWY before they went to the main stage to play HMTMKMKM. Bono also did a long speech before ISHFWILF.

If they can just cut off all these parts and replace them with songs, we would get a more productive U2 show given the same time limit.

Cheers,

J

I wouldn't mind a show 1/2 way through the tour where I had no idea what was gonna come next.  The setlists have been pretty predictable.  Perhaps they could take requests.  Something goofy like that. 

and they would have to play Red Hill Mining Town.

I'd love to see them play 11 o'clock tick tock.

And not that slow version, but one like the Red Rocks
