that will probably be the new version of red hill mining town

 

I thought you were joking at first and then I read the below.

 

The following makes me go "oh dear!!!"..

 

"U2 have also been working with Lilywhite on a new version of The Joshua Tree‘s “Red Hill Mining Town.” Bono has re-recorded his vocal, and the new mix has brought out the brass band that was buried in the original."

I don't have a problem with U2 playing greatest hits or milestone tours. The guys are pushing 60, their last good album was 2004 and their last great album was 1997. If that's all they can do these days, a U2 greatest hits tour* would still be one of the greatest shows on Earth.

 

KISS tour without a supporting album, Rolling Stones are basically just greatest hits shows. Crowds keep going to see them.

 

I can't see U2 going like INXS - packing out Wembley Stadium to opening for Matchbox 20 - any time soon.

* WORLDWIDE tour please

I was willing to run with the story that The Joshua Tree has become relevant again in the current political climate, but now it's starting to sound more like that line from God Part II.

 

   U2 started sounding like that line in God Part II since 2000's ATYCLB ....except the slight hop of 2009's No Line on The Horizon......Which was a good album imho and HTDAB was good too (2004)....but not as good as NLOTH.........

I thought it was more "Look everyone, we're back to being normal! Please love us again!"

 

  To me, normal U2 is when they're pushing the envelope.
