Too bad we never got Mofo. It would've been brilliant.

As strange as it will be when it's all over, I think a big part of me will be glad, at least in the short term. If it had ended in South Africa as planned, it would be one thing, but after over two years, it's definitely felt a bit stretched out at this rate. After so much U2, I'll be glad of a bit of a break to recharge- and I'm sure the band are glad that the tour is ending by now too!

But thankfully the tour didn't end in South Africa, as the shows in the US have had the energy of a tour that had just started

Well, we'll never know if the US shows in early 2010 would have had the same energy level, of course, but I'd say they probably would have - it's worth noting that in both cases, they would have had Glastonbury both to spur them to bring out songs that might not appear otherwise (Like 'The Fly') and to ensure a high energy level before and after it!

But I feel Bono's return from his injury has inspired the band more than anything, even Glastonbury, could.  And returning to the US after two years was a HUGE ordeal in terms of inspiration, as these were the fans that were spurned in 2010

Maybe, but I think that the energy level of the early US gigs was definitely down from what it was in South America and then only rocketed up in the week or so running up to Glastonbury, and then on the post-show high thereafter.

I think the Denver and definitely the Seattle gigs were definitely of a high energy, but you're right, they did get more energetic right before Glasto and then the dates afterwards.

Instead of a fantasy football league, we'll have a fantasy U2 concert tour.

Yes! And then they could finally play Bryant-Denny!

Just Carney alone? ... not his band?

(well, that would explain the tweets... just thought it was all of them)

Agree about the energy b/4 and after Glasto.  Felt it at Nash-- lots of energy!
