Meh. Roll eyes. Shake head. Move on.
Lady Gaga is awesome. Loved it.
U2 jumping shark for relevance. Classless gaga shouldn't be on the same stage.

amazing how some so called U2 fans can be so conservative

And this surprises you?? Someone started a thread whining and was appalled about beer drinking and pot smoking at shows. You would have thought that someone stole their new born child at the show and sold him/her on the black market.....geeez

the way I see it is if you've got a great ass then you show it off.

I wonder if anyone did an 'attempted ass graze' in the GA on her.

I wouldn't say that yer typical U2 fan is conservative but I would say that yer typical U2 fan is more politically correct than many other rock fans

I don't even know what that term means.

Guests I can handle. Springsteen played a show last time out with EIGHT (8) covers. EIGHT. The guy has the second-best catalog in the history of American music (behind Dylan) and he is charging $150 and a third of the show is COVERS? I swear to God kids, if I had been at that show, I would have demanded a refund.

Guests don't bother me. An occasional cover with a guest doesn't bother me. Look at Dancing Queen on ZooTV! That was an AWESOME moment.
99.9 percent of the time U2 play, they are playing U2 songs. They may not always be the ones I would pick, but they are actual U2 songs.

U2 are straddling this line this tour. Some of the guests are cool, but some can't dance and/or play guitar. U2Brothr was the highlight for me.

I se eyour point about covers as well, sometimes they bring down the show.

what really irritates me about covers is when I want to make a playlist out of the setlist and I can't because of the covers.

As much as I don't like her music, a hot woman in her underwear is what the otherwise moribund ordinary love needs to make it interesting.

Assuming of course said woman, and of course this adage applies to men too, dresses for the body she has not the body she wants.

I picked option 1, but I probably would have really liked it if she had actually worn clothing and didn't use the fake accent when it was her turn to sing.  She really is talented and I felt it was a shame that even on stage with U2, she felt the need to look like a slut and over exaggerate her voice.  An appropriate dress and singing with the great voice we all know she has would have made that performance so much better.

An appropriate dress?

What does that mean really?....she dresses how she dresses, that's part of what she is as a performer.

She was performing at a rock n roll show, not picking up an MBE at Buckingham Palace.

I'm insulted that I saw a woman's skin, she should've worn a burqa.

I'm not saying she can't show any skin. I'm just disappointed that instead of showing off her amazing talent last night, she chose to show off her bra and panties. If she wanted to sex-up the rock 'n roll look, a leather strapless mini-dress would have been a good choice and, in my opinion, would have helped her looked so much better.

Were all the people complaining about what Lady Gaga wore complaining when Adam's hammer was swaying in the wind on the Achtung Baby cover?

Adam was showing off one of his talents!  :)

Seriously, I think her costumes and shoe choices are really over the top and usually stupid looking. It does take away from her talent, IMO.

Um, I'm not complaining about what Lady Gaga's wearing or Adam's hammer.  Quite frankly, I envy them.

Even if it was a great idea to get LG onstage, it was certainly ruined by the startlingly boring ordinary love as song choice.
