JT 30... how about AB 30 ?
« on: January 07, 2017, 05:55:28 AM »
With the JT30 happening, 2021 seems like an obvious year should U2 choose to do AB30. Will they, in your opinion ?

I voted "yes", not because I believe they will do it, but because it would be THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN IN MY LIFETIME. I love most of TJT songs, but AB is so much better, in every way.
Lyric, music, presentation, just everything.

AB is my favourite U2 album, and they love it so i'd love to see it! Lots of music to be played from now until then though

I'd be fine with it, but I don't know the likelihood of this type of tour working well more than once for a band/artist.

Would be cool, but they won't cause they are too scared to attempt Acrobat.

Personally would've preferred a Unforgettable Fire 30th tour... My favorite album

I would have rather they did this than TJT. Could have worked well last year (25th anniversary). But if they're doing a full TJT tour, I'd hope they'd only do a very limited number (under 10) of AB shows in 2021.

I think that maybe not an AB 30 Tour, but a Zoo TV 30th Anniversary Tour.

That would be awesome.

I think an updated Zoo TV would be an excellent idea. Totally in-your-face, F-U style, even bigger than the original.

I voted 'yes' just for the reason i see people saying they can now see Red Hill and Exit played for the JT tour, i will say i want to see Wild Horses played from AB...  But I probably won't be attending either tour.

Dependent on circumstances, I think they could end up doing it whether they particularly want to or not. Same reasoning that appears to be the background for doing this tour too.

With the Orange Buffoon in charge that would make for some excellent phone conversations with Memphisto...  ;D ;D ;D
