Been up on stage with the band at one of the shows this year?

Honestly, do you really think fans want to see other fans up on stage for a 2nd (or 3rd) time? I think not. They either want the opportunity to get on stage themselves or they enjoy the spontaneity of the moment. As Bono says, "Be in the Moment". 

 

I am uncomfortable and disappointed in this contest. Why not give another huge fan a chance. There are many of us who have seen them in multiple times, in multiple cities in multiple countries. And not just on the U2ieTour.

I agree with you 100%. The last thing i want to see is the same people on stage over and over and over again. cool, they had their moment but how about someone who hasnt had that moment they've dreamed of. 

 

And there is no surprise in the winners so far. U2 should have just handpicked them, invited them and let it be a surprise when they showed up on stage Saturday night. Instead there many disappointed life long fans. It is like a clique in High School.

You're absolutely right. Its like everyone who hangs out in the "popular hallway" in high school. Seeing who some of the winners are, they will be on stage for a 3rd or 4th time. What a joke this whole contest was. I hope they enjoy taking this to a higher level of status symbol on social media. These fans who were chosen are no bigger fans then the rest of us they are just the popular ones who self promoted themselves. UGH!!!

Be careful about lumping everyone into same category...not always true

I can't believe the news today,

The poll has opened,

And it won't go away,

How long,

How long must this poll go on,

How long, how long,

Cos Sat night, only one will get on stage,

Sat night.

 

A chance for those to get another treat,

Bodies strewn around the E stage meet,

Most of us won't get the call,

It put's my back up,

Put's my back up against the wall.

 

Paris on Saturday,

On stage there is no way,

Paris on Saturday,

On stage there is no way,

 

And though the voting's just begun,

Most of us lost, I wonder who has won,

We had no chance right from the start,

We had hope but now its seems that's

Torn apart.

 

Paris on Saturday,

On stage there is no way,

 

How long,

How long will this poll go on,

How long, how long,

On Sat night, there will only be the one,

Sat night, Sat night, Sat night, Sat night.
