I find it odd how many fans criticise U2 for being a "nostalgia act", but the idea of nostalgic mini-sets within the Glasto performance seems to be a winner ??? I'm guessing that if they did actually do it, it wouldn't have gone down as well. The grass is always greener and all that.

This is so true.  U2 could have played for 5 hours, performed every big hit and fan favorite in their catalogue, and there would still be a chorus of complaints from 'fans' about the order they played them in, the way Bono sung certain songs, what snippets were and wern't used and what they wore.

I just like the thinking - nothing to do with mini sets

I just read the Willie Williams article and want to cry at what could have been.

Btw, anyone know what the weather was like on the night U2 were meant to have played in 2010?

Oh, what could have been...
