His voice was very messed up and shrill between 2003-2005. It was disturbing. 2009, he sounded brand new. The better question is: pirate hair bono or hipster hair bono?

"Pirate" Bono LOL! :lol:

 

You mean like this:

 

Will-Turner-will-turner-7785099-333-500.

 

I know which one looks better, but I reckon I know which one it'll be.

Sorry...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.

I would say that have sang the old songs better then in a long time. WOWY, Streets, Gloria, Pride was better in years.
 Just listen to Streets from 2015(6:09 in the video), he havent sound like this since late 80s/early 90s.

Powerful Electric Cooooooooooooooo  5.08 in this video

I can recommend to listen to the soundboard version on ISHFWILF from iHEART.

We should aslo be in mind that Bono was in pain durning the IE tour because of the accident in 2014 with he bike.
