bmillis replied to bmillis's topic in GeneralAppreciate the responses. I'm curious how 2017 Bono approaches RHMT considering how I feel about his voice. I'm guessing a lot of fans are jazzed to hear that song live. That song comes across as really difficult to sing. Thanks for recommending some recent performances where you felt his voice was spot on. I will have to check them out. I've got a lot of live recordings and I really cherish the ones from the Zoo TV/Zooropa era where I felt his voice was at its peak. I do think he can have occasional moments but I don't think he is consistent. And it's not about perfection...its that he just doesn't sound good to me anymore. I want to emphasize It's not that I dislike U2/Bono....I think they're great.... it's more of a feeling of disappointment. Like said, I'm sure there are people that 100% disagree with me and I respect that....not trying to offend anyone.
bmillis posted a topic in GeneralSorry...I know I'm going to get flamed for this... Bono can't sing anymore. His range is gone....especially his lower register. I'm not trying to be mean spirited but I can't fathom shelling out money to see the Joshua Tree Tour 2017 when I know I'd be getting Bono 2017 versus Bono 1987. I know, I know....people get old and their voice changes. However, I'm at the point where I find his voice annoying and I cringe when I hear him sing from their older catalog...i.e. Joshua Tree. And I'm not cringing because I don't like him...it's more of a feeling of pity. I know that many think his voice is great...so if you feel that way I hope you got tickets and enjoy the show. Me...I'm bowing out. I've seen them over a dozen times and it's time to call it quits. Anyone else feel the same way? Again, not trying to start a war...just my opinion.
