How do you think U2 will end?
« on: January 02, 2009, 08:32:08 PM »
As much as I don't want to imagine life without U2, I sometimes wonder what the "end" will be like.  Will they break up, have one last "Greatest Hits" tour, etc.  Will Larry leave the band after Bono associates with more war criminals?  Will they go on forever like The Stones or only last another few tours?

How and/or when do you imagine U2 will end?

I think U2 are going to go on for a very long time. I think they will make records and tour less frequently when the time comes but I see them staying in the music business perhaps producing-thing like that.

I would rather not think about it, but I think they'll be around for at least another decade.  :)

I think they will do one more album and tour after this one  :'(. They will want to go out on top...And after the group is done...I think they will each remain active in the music community.

Maybe they'll write a few more musicals and scores for movies...

I know they will release some special edition "U2 collector's box" and hopefully rare videos, songs, etc...

Adam will start his own clothing line (and release a solo record) and Larry will design a "Mullen Edition" Harley. Bono will continue his crusades to end poverty and Edge will pursue a career in rocket science.

When they are in their 80s they will play a reunion show that will be streamed live via the internet.

Larry will finally completely lose it, and charge Bono at band practice. The Edge will protect his rack and guitars, then order Dallas to jump in to break it up.
..  .and Adam will go and get a cup of tea. ;D

In the quotes of Larry: "We'll shoot ourselves to the head thank you very much!"  ;)

Imagine U2 playing streets in their 90s ;D ;D I don't think Larry would have aged at all and Bono would have even bigger sunglasses  ;D :P

I don't see the band breaking up now. If that was to be, it would have happenned by now.

I think they'll keep on making music and evolving...maybe touring a little less...U2 will be done when, sadly, one band member passes away.

Honestly, a member will die.  I can't see U2 breaking up any other way.  They seem to like what they do way too much.

They will create the greatest song ever....and then their heads will explode from the sheer beauty of it.

Then it will be released as a loving tribute to U2. Then everyone's head will also explode from listening to the amazing song.

There, I predicted the end of U2 and the end of the world. ;D
