Lol, thank you everyone for bringing up the familiarity of the stage- yours truly was about to start a thread about this!! Anyways seeing the stage was strike 1 for Petty(even though I consider myself somewhat of a fan) I thought already trying to copy U2. Then the song selection strike 2, strike 3, no passion whatsoever, seemed like he went through the motions. I'm as biased as anyone, but there should be no legitimate debate to be had between U2 and Prince, no comparison whatsoever to how U2 captured America at the time w/ such an unbelievable show. And ABC gave people less songs then Fox, fox gives 4 songs to halftime performers, U2 got 3, and knocked it out of the park, completely on their own terms. So many super bowl performers get their songs picked for them by the league or the network(stones)- for U2-- networks would have picked BD, Elevation and Walk on for the 9/11 memorial! U2 completely went on their own terms and chose BD, MLK, Streets. It was the first time I had ever even heard that song(fan since elevation tour) and they had me hooked right there. No halftime show has ever or will ever match U2! That being said, Sting and No Doubt was very good. Here's one vote for the reunited Police doing the Super Bowl next year! They're my 2nd favorite band.

well stage aside, the performance was lackluster...there will never be a more meaningful halftime performance than U2's....there just won't be...U2 were in the right place at the right time and were the perfect band to rise up to the occasion...no other band could have hit home the way U2 did

while agree with the sentement that u2 was the right band at the right time... i disagree with the idea that no one else could ever give that sort of emotional performance ever again.

but on that note... let's certainly hope we never have to find out.
