Judging by the comments (which I generally agree with) they seem pretty disconnected from their fans. Embarrassing.. down there with the 360 mask idea.

There must be an endless list of songs that would be better placed and pass fans more, including just about any b side or cover song.

Wow... I must be the only one who likes this song.  However, I wouldn't want to see myself singing it, and you all definitely wouldn't want to see that either.

The song is fine, but I'd prefer to leave it to the professionals to sing it...the crowd singing 40 to close out a show is one thing, but a forced crowd chorus is just kinda lame IMO.

It's been typical of their history to try to prove that they have cool, young, sexy, hip-looking, fans. I think they'll use this opportunity to prove as much by selecting the right fan videos for the event. They'll probably also throw in a couple of "normals" just because, though.

Pretty much exactly how I feel about this, really cringworthy.  U2 do you want to remind yourself this came "second at the Oscars".  Please don't do it.  If not, just a bathroom/beer break.

I'm cool but old and no longer sexy as are a lot of us but come on can't we still have a band? Why do only young kids get to have a band?

If emails are going out about this already, unfortunately it is probably too far along to be scrapped.

"Too far along to be scrapped." Hilarious.

Was like that acoustic bit in the I and E tour. It was pretty easy for them to do, but was totally boring. The band need to get off that level of thinking. No Bono dueting with Edge on Piano bits please.

I wonder do they actually research with fans as to whether fans liked those bits. Whenever that Piano came up I just though... no no no.

B-Stage has worked on occasion for U2 when its one song and its rocking. But these slow easy ballads are boring as f

But I thought Edge playing the guitar on something was supposed to be bad? You know, him being "safe" and all.  ::)

I think this type of argument would happen no matter what type of song was picked. I don't mind the song, but the idea is a weird one, unless they have something surprisingly decent in mind if it works out.

Has anyone listened to the backing track? Is it acoustic or full band album version? This should give a clue to how it's performed live

Sad, very sad. Im scared for Vancouver and Seattle now.

If the potential of some video idea is that bad for anyone, then I'm sure there's plenty of Prince or Bowie fans that would beg to differ about it.
