Yeah, I think Adele would actually work really well once she cools off a bit and doesn't completely dominate the charts. It would be a good match-up.

I dunno, her music really seems to be the type that doesn't do stadiums.

I should have paid more attention to Florence. However, I was at my first ever U2 concert and could have cared less, but now I very much like her. Although, I don't think a stadium is her venue even as picturesque as she looked in her flowing red dress.

Interpol opened for them in Pittsburgh and I didn't pay attention to them either, but either they weren't good or the sound system was bad.  ::)

MDMom- Same here. I didn't pay much attention to Florence because the heat was killing me and I was so excited for U2. But I did know one of her songs, and paid enough attention to note another one I liked so I could look it up later. Now Florence is one of my favorite artists. Go figure! And the stadium didn't work for her sound- her voice was far too echoey and I couldn't understand the lyrics. I think she needs a smaller space so the sound can be more contained between two walls. But yeah, she did look beautiful in that dress. ;D

Now, what band would I like to see open for U2... I guess Thriving Ivory, my second favorite band. They need to publicity anyway.

mdmom, have you ever heard the "christian" band NEEDTOBREATHE?  Really good, they might be a good opener.

They are playing DC's 9:30 Club next weekend. They just added a second show because the first sold out. Whereas, All American Rejects are there this Sunday and are still not sold out.

I've always thought The Cranberries would make a great opener for U2. Although I don't think I've ever heard any member of U2 acknowledge that band. I think it would be a great show. Maroon 5 might be pretty good as well.
