For me, the scary part was not that he lost his voice, but the way it happened. That and Bono's terrified look as if he also didn't know what was happening, with the band being shocked too.
You can lose your voice due to laryngitis, a cold, an A/C unit that's set way too cold and you feel what's going on in your body. Your voice deteriorates and then is gone. Here, it went without apparent warning.

(It happens already in the first minute of the song)

Thankfully, it appears it that he will be able to sing again the day after tomorrow and that the tour can continue. The Berlin show is now rescheduled for November 13th, so right after the Dublin shows.

yeesh. far scarier things have happened to them during shows. he doesn't look "terrified" and neither does the band. they all know what's happening, it's not the first time he's lost his voice, he's a professional singer ffs. it happens. he's just pissed off that he can't sing the song properly.

Yeah, I think he just looks shattered, which is completely understandable. I am sure that performing Pride with your eyes closed because you're going to be shot in the head would be a little more terrifying.

Also, lmao at the thought of Bono going to Berghain.

They'll soundcheck it a dozen times, play it once, and forget it

It depends on how you define "always". While there's no variation with their previous full show, that was the only time that setlist was played.
They usually rehearse/soundcheck new additions a couple of times before introducing them. Or not at all (like with Drowning Man on the 360 Tour ).

I think, given everything, we've now moved into the elongated heat death of U2. Their entropy is increasing and as a result more and more they are going to take fewer risks, following the path of least resistance. Since the start of JT30, I think we're looking at static sets from here on out.

Yeah my initial reaction was kinda similar, then it occurred to me that 360 was 8-9 years ago now, and songs coming back after that long felt like a big deal in 2001 or 2005.

Wonder where UF would go in the set. Rotate with NYD perhaps? Doesn't seem like it'd give the same big moment though, much as I adore it.

I could see them reprising one or both of UF into COBL from 2009 or Zooropa into COBL from 2011, with NYD being a placeholder for now until they work it out.

The static setlists are unfortunate, but let's not jump the gun and assume this is the way it is from here on out. They've constructed a narrative for this tour that locked them in and made things more rigid than usual, so if they do tour again I don't know why we'd assume it will be the same.

And we're also looking at a tour that has Acrobat being played every night, a hardcore fan's dream come true, and certainly a "risk" of sorts.

Like their recent studio albums, the tours are a mixed bag. 360 gave us Ultraviolet and Your Blue Room, but the pacing and song order wasn't optimum. I don't know why it's suddenly time to sound the alarm.

Yea I don't think static set lists mean it's the death knell of U2. They've always had static sets. The moments of rotation have been the exception, not the rule.

The death knell of U2 is that, ya know, the lead singer has been physically falling apart for the better part of the last decade.

Imagine being in a band that thinks rotating Red Flag Day with ABOY is a good way to satisfy fans who see multiple shows.

Wow.

Yet another in a long series of baffling, disappointing decisions.
