So glad you had the song of your Mother released. More men need to know the value a mother has. No need to have felt embarrassed. That was a lovely thing to do.xx

So long as I am alive U2 will be THE ONE. , im not sorry, the band is not a circus. I will write what I and my family experienced in NI and Free State. This band is the the best in the world. and simple minds comes next. I will devote the rest of the time of my life to them, no one can match them. Our birthday is the same, my brother looks like him, and He and They have inspired me and helped meself and my family cope with what has occurred. Of course I admire many others and since I do not have much time left on this earth, for better or worse, I devote the rest of my life to their honesty, talent, love, and hopefully what I write for them and all committed to their outstanding, no only performance, yet the conveyance of what is sung, written and safely conveyed to the world. I KNOW BONO CAN PLAY AGAN> My mum had same trouble and he will recover, He needs ta right docs. IF not His voice, his writing, his lyric will live on. And every single fan in the world will support them. Keep on, brother, for you are a twin of my brother. Its ethereal. . I love Shebeen I love the Aussies and whilst U2 is my opinion the best, many other are as well, especially those who hae played and supported them in the past. Kindly keep doing so. God Bless all and always remembers only God knows all and hearts, With kind words, with prayer, with U2 and many other bands conveying thus our country will be FREE..Thank you for evermore this talent given to you by the almighty and using it for the best of all people. And I shall not mention the others who do the same here, you know who you are.

I think the 1st time I've heart The Edge speaking voice.  Nice.  I like the pseudo-falsetto, delay in following Bono's line.  I also like the desert rose hidden in our desert.  A scary place.  Photos of you keeping close because of the rumors is good.

@Andres Porras but they havent put put good music, the apple download was a joke. shows are ok, unless the edge falls off a stage
Andres Porras (2 years ago)
well, in that case, let U2 keep touring and making wonderful music
robertk2007 (2 years ago)
@Andres Porras sorry, but stumbling off stage and canceling tours because bike accidents isnt rock music. granted, they are better than most acts out there, but isnt saying much

Indoors and inside a bubble. I mean - what's wrong with the air outside? Is there something we should know and aren't being told. Something the "philanthropists"; don't dare tell? They should write a new song: Suck it up - over populators.

This concert was magnificent to say the very least. I have followed this band since 1979 my senior year in HS. Boston was one of the first radio stations that gave them a break. I'm so glad they did. It's like a religious experience with the music and lyrics. I really think they are God's band, delivering the message of hope faith and love. Great interview.  Nancy, Boston, MA

Roy Villeneve (3 years ago)
They have already done and played everything in the 360 tour. No show will be better than the POPMART in Mexico City back in 1997 ( the greatest show of a rock band ever ). They should try to play more experimental music or retire , no more left but repeat the same over and over again , kind of boring.
USASecretHistory (3 years ago)
Do us all a favor U2.  Retire. It's over. Especially for Bono. Can't you take a hint? The Edge fell off a stage. Bono fell off his bike. Now Bono can't play guitar. Soon he will lose his vocal range as well.  "That's right, the artist with the highest vocal range in the UK is Editors singer Tom Smith, and you can be forgiven for never having heard of him, because he's better known as 'the singer out of the Editors'. Indie supremo Tom Smith, who channels Joy Division legend Ian Curtis with his low frequency rumblings, has a SUPERHUMAN vocal range of 4.75. To put that into perspective, that's a wider tonal range than an electric guitar (in standard tuning)." http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/singer-best-vocal-range-uk-4323076 Mike Patton of Faith No More has a vocal range of 6 octaves.

@Andy Pianoman I'm sorry but your post is incoherent and makes no sense. You write the way Bono writes his lyrics. Complete with clichés and devoid of a single complete thought. 
Andy Pianoman (3 years ago)
@USASecretHistory Bono might be doing you a favour if he retires but you do not speak for ALL, millions of people still enjoy them, maybe you will wake up to the fast that the earth was not put here just for you, and if other people enjoy something you do not like, embrace it, it would be a sad world if we all liked the same thing. They are still selling out lots of big venues. Go and troll something else you don't like, I am sure there is a lot of choice. Peace

@kellykinsellives I saw them at Slane in 2001 and nothing can top that! but 360 was amazing! And I am seeing them in Nov so I will reserve judgement

USASecretHistory (3 years ago)
+Robert Palmer there were other venues that they sold out during that tour. But Mike Patton is larger than Faith No More. He has worked with Fantomas, Tomahawk, Peeping Tom, and did also Mondo Cane. He has an amazing voice. He has criticized the work that artists have produced in the last couple of decades. He has always attempted to be innovative and doesn't stick to a genre. He doesn't even like to label what he does musically.
Robert Palmer (3 years ago)
+USASecretHistory I see the Wiltern holds roughly 2,300 people. Not really that hard to sell out in a city as large as L.A.
USASecretHistory (3 years ago)
@Robert Palmer Their shows have been selling out in their most recent SolInvictus tour. I went to all 3 shows at the Wiltern Theater. All 3 shows were sold out.
