Who says you have to WATCH the movie. Wait for the soundtrack to come out and buy the song from iTunes.  ;D

Obviously they do or it wouldn't be in the movie, not with strings and a polished sound, as has been reported.  And they're not sharing it with us. :'(

I don't see why it wouldn't be on the soundtrack. Nevertheless, it will be available eventually.

I wouldn't be that optimistic - the band made a whole new (string and piano) version of Winter for the movie 'Brothers', and that never saw the light of day.
I suspect U2 feel under so much pressure to release a dramatic, commercially successful comeback to NLOTH's failure that they're actually too scared of releasing any new material whatsoever, until its the lead single to thenextbigu2album (which will be a year or two)  :-\

Wow everyone acts like watching Transformers is a mortal sin.

It's pretty close. The Transformer movies were beyond bad. After I saw the 1st one I swore I wouldn't see the 2nd, but wife convinced me to take our nephews. I actually couldn't believe they could come up with something worse then the 1st one, but to my amazement they did. The 2nd is probably in my top 5 worst movies ever made.

I think 'North Star' can now be put into that category of songs which will 100% definitely (Or at least 90%) see a U2 release at some point in some form, along with Every Breaking Wave and Mercy. They've started to cite it in interviews, it was the one new song they played from the start to the end, it got a great crowd reception which they loved, and now this.

So, um, they should like, um, bring it back at a show on the North American leg, maybe? Huh, guys? C'mon....

I think Mercy and North Star would make pretty good B-sides.

So I'm guessing "North Star" making an appearance in Transformers pretty much guarantees it won't be on the next album.  Someone please tell me I'm wrong.  I love that song.  :'(

You're wrong; the fact that they don't even play the song in full or in the soundtrack shows that. I think it almost certainly will be on the next album and this makes it *more* likely.

By which definition, exactly one leg of the tour is a 'nostalgia tour' so... what's your point?
