any reason for almost no 90's songs being played?

it's absolutely amazing to me how they've gutted everything from the 90's from their setlists.

has there been any interview lately where they've stated WHY they're doing this?

are they really that ashamed of what they did? it's like the 90's have become their ugly stepchild or something.

it's seriously depressing.

Well, Bono has recently cited Achtung Baby as their best album, and Stay and Please, both '90's tracks, as their best songs.

No links, but the comment about Achtung was in an Irish Times interview about 6-9 months ago, and the comments about Please and Stay were in answer to a question by the interviewer in the book 'Bono in Conversation' (the question being along the lines, 'what do you consider U2's best songs?').

They market their latest greatest hits to the casual fan and relive their youth with songs hardcore fans would appreciate. Best of both worlds, don't you think? Discuss.

i'm banned from pleba.

it's hilarious how they've ditched everything from that era but are willing to bore the crowd to tears with made for clear channel hits including walk on and stuck in a moment..
