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.......



Amen on that

Wow too much speculation around here!!

It was a nostalgic interview about perhaps better times, but where on Earth do you see signs of them wanting to quit or separate??

Bono indeed sounded tired, maybe he does need a longer rest than Edge (he went through surgery in the middle of the tour) but I actually liked their sincerity in answering, and it looks like the film will be along these lines as well.

Wonderful stuff
