Sports Guy reviews U2 @ Staples Center

link

For some reason, Bill Simmons references some song called "New Song". Is this guy really a longtime U2 fan?

that appears to be a typo of some sort... why would he call an older classic "new song"

makes no sense

Bono dedicated "Running to Stand Still" – a song about heroin users, if I remember correctly – to the U.S. troops overseas. He also dedicated "One" – a song about a relationship falling apart, if I remember correctly – to the plight of Africans, even changing some of the lyrics. He's turning into the new Elton John. I kept waiting for him to change the lyrics of "Party Girl" to honor Princess Di.

I think he meant "40", whence my skepticism of his credentials as a diehard U2 fan.
