Show in India
« on: September 20, 2019, 02:28:50 AM »
I've seen a lot of chat on social media around the announcement of this final show - a lot of it aimed particularly at Bono. I'm not sure where i sit on this myself - but then again all countries have their own issues and no one can really be described as whiter than white? Or is just opportunistic Bono bashing (which he sometimes deserve)

I was just reading this article. They have a point, mentioning that the timing is not right for India considering the human rights violations in India. On the other hand business is business or a U2 concert should be more than that?

It could of course be simply they don’t see touring on the horizon for a while after this and taking the opportunity to visit India. That said with previous ‘hiccups’ around supporting An Sung Su Chi I would expect the issues raised in the article to have been discussed. Then again it’s Guy Oseary in the chair now..

There are plenty of human rights violations in the U.S. right now as well.

So the U.S. is in the same category as India in regards to Human Rights violations? Most likely not.
