Maybe Larry has told them he no longer wants to be touring in u2 anymore. Hence the current rumors that u2 won't tour again, hence why Bono is sad???
Hmm...seems something is going on...maybe that little while comment was from something occurring within the band like you said.

I didn't read the interview quite that way, though of course it's crossed my mind like any U2 fan these days....how much longer will they tour, and all that. I guess I read it more as....the retrospective look at AB has naturally put them in a contemplative state ...and a "where to now" kind of space. Bono's final comments, coming in what seemed a rather abrupt ending by the host due to Bono fielding that final question (....almost serendipitously now that I think about it)....was taken by me to be a point that the band are right back where they were during AB - the danger zone of not only wanting, but of having to reinvent themselves yet again. There was a lot of talk of that by Davis as well. That feeling of being uncomfortable with being comfortable. Interesting, really!  I thought Bono was so honest and almost vulnerable as he spoke about U2 being at the edge of irrelevance now. But I believe he was looking to that as a calling place for the band to dream it all up again as they so often have. To use it as fuel to take the risks they need to again. I don't think they're looking like a band that's ending.

At least, that's what I'm counting on.......

WOW! It was emotional to hear Bono speak that final truth about where he feels the band is right now - the edge of irrelevance. But I know out of that will come renewal once again.

Still, did anyone find that moment tough? Yet beautiful?  

Yeah, I found it a bit unsettling.....It was something I was not expecting at all.
