While I remember many opening acts, I believe the only one I can say I enjoyed was SRV opening for Dire Straits and later for Robert Plant.  Was also lucky enough to see him on his own too in '89.

Can't say any of U2's openers were truly enjoyable that I have seen. (Maybe Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul)

Muse was the opener for the show I went to on the 360 tour. I felt they added alot and enjoyed their set.

That's still a half hour earlier (approximately) than they'd start with an opening band.

Is it? Why?

7:7:30pm opening band, on stage at 8pm. Perfectly doable.

For the US, the pattern is typically:

Opener: 7.30 to 8.15 (ish)

45 min break

Headliner at 9.

way way  way more often than not this is how it has been

Glasvegas were superb on 360.

They blew u2 off the stage in Dublin
