What country are you in?

If you can't see it on TV, it might be on NBC's website.

History is often saying otherwise. And I beg to differ about Viva La Vida's "brilliance".

I used to give U2 the benefit of the doubt, but I can't lie, after ATYCBL and the last album of course there were songs I loved but something was missing and I really believe that was Bono who was wrong.

I think Bono feels that he has to do something in his life that is beyond U2, and at the same time I cannot disagree with him if that is his purpose in life, we cannot put someone down U2 if they feel that their life has a new purpose or temporary purpose).

Oh no doubt, but with the right promotion U2 is the most stable artist for the industry, but in terms of hitting the ground running though at the moment we seem to be headed more towards the reception of Pop. I think if it far surpasses their 2000's era material it'll do better than the Bomb overall, maybe even ATYCLB, but if they don't promote it right it won't sustain itself. That said it'll sell boatloads worldwide and they'll sell out every ticket of the upcoming tour, so no worries.

Thanks. Sorry for answering so late, I fell asleep
(It was 3:30 AM here in NL).

ESPN showed Bruce, but not the ad with U2. It's on Youtube now so I've seen it anyway
