I might get flogged here.
I’ve seen U2 4 times on this tour. All have been good shows, some better than others.
But I’ve walked away from the 4 shows thinking this: it’s starting to seem like a movie with alternate endings. If you’ve seen more than one show, you know what’s coming next. You might get a surprise ending, but the body of the show doesn’t change much. Some would say that the show is geared for those who come to a show and want to hear their favorite songs. After being a U2 fan for 23 years and being an online fan for 8 – most of their shows are attended more than once. There are many of us that see as many shows as we can afford/handle. We travel to other cities or countries to see them. I guess I’d like to see more variety. Yeah, the light show and message are great, but switch it up a bit. I love Where the Streets Have No Name – but it’s starting to lose its impact on me.
This doesn’t mean that I’m not going to try to get tickets to the December shows. Or if they swing back around for a 2006 tour that I would sit it out. They just have a huge catalogue of music. It might be time to dust it off and give it some new life.Anyone feel like this?
