Why not , they are ramping up to tour and they usually appear as often as possible for promo, not that they need the exposure...almost everyone knows who they are.

Why would they promo at the oscars. It's a movie event and U2 haven't done anything related to a major movie in years.

Because they are musicians who have NO relation whatshowever to this event.
For promotion of their album they promote it during music events.

But why would they even be asked? The musical performances at the Oscars are only those that are nominated FOR an Oscar. U2 are not. Hence, there is a -23% chance they'll perform at the Oscars.

YES. All of these logical responses.

Nah, they'd go for Coldplay


Doesn't matter that its U2. U2 is only 'our' favourite band. The Oscars is still, at the end of the day, focused on movies. U2 doesn't have a current connection with a movie and isn't even nominated. They are irrelevant. (shock horror ). I realise you'd like to see them there, but if you look at it logically, it just isn't going to happen.

Who the hell cares for the Oscars anyway? They're a MOVIE thing, not a MUSIC thing.
TOTALLY UNRELATED TO U2.

Why do you keep trying to convince us there's a chance they'll play here???? What's your ulteriour motive? Do you want them to play it so badly? What for?

I agree with you Reggo, this is useless.

Next thing you know this guy tells you Edge has a flying V.
