It's an illness not all cures are the same. Can you get depressed about real things that are happening yes you can.  But many depression and anxiety suffers don't have a thing to be anxious or sad about, we are even happy.  Just have a hopelss or anxious devil that consumes us for no reason other than messed up brain chemistry.  If you don't understand this then your blessed with not having it.

Or, having a real devil in your past that, in your mind, is still trying to destroy you. JT, I can partially understand your comments...I'm a happy person, with a good life, and still can suffer from anxiety/depression/panic disorders. Unlike you, I have reasons for my messed up brain chemistry. I think mine would be easier to cope with...at least I have something (someone) to blame.  :) One day at a time...
Peace.

I didnt even think that he was a character. I just thought it was TJT Era Bono sans pony tail.

The outfit, including the jacket with insignia on it, was the indicator for me.

I like Bono's look in this new getup during "Exit".  I get that it is basically a costume of a fictional character, but I wouldn't mind seeing him don that outfit during the entire set.

Bono needs to get out of that character after the song.  He explained that he has done self-harm during that song and gone to a dark place.  Also, the song has some historical dark baggage (was used as an alibi or explanation by a murderer during trial). It is best played mindfully and quickly.

This reminds me of Ken Dodd doing the Happiness Show (not that there's anything wrong with that).  I can't see Bono pulling that character off on this tour or maybe any tour.  If you don't know who Ken Dodd is, he's a veteran British Comedian (aged about 90) from Liverpool, starting out before the Beatles (but was photographed with them).  Famous for scouse wit, and bright cheery stage personas, diddy men and jam butty mines (again, stage personas) and not declaring his taxes and getting away with it.  Aims to have his audience aching with laughter at the end of the night and a has reputation for not coming off stage until around midnight.  Still pulls the crowds in and is actually quite funny.

I found Shadow Man to be creepy and disturbing. If this singing thing falls through, Yer Man would make a good actor.
