I agree - it was obviously a dream come true to hear it live (one of the highlights of the tour!), but for what they were trying to do in a stadium setting, Bad worked better. Here’s to hoping it returns on E+I, where they can probably find a better spot for it (arguably arenas will also work in its favor)

So nothing yet eh? You would have thought if a song was comming out tomorow, we surely would have heard something by now. But maybe still early in the day.

They could easily drop the announcement and song tomorrow without warning. If it is this week, I'd think it's definitely going to happen tomorrow though.

We had exactly the same conversation last week, that something would happen on the friday, and it never did.

Yes that's my fear too! But I did read somewhere in one of the articles, was is atU2? That a song would come out this week and now the tour is over. So there is certainly hope. Mikal may be right with a release with no warning.

Given that Spotify thing showed up, I reckon we're more likely than not to get some word.

Yeah and really I'm more eager than worried. I think we're as good as confirmed that the album is coming out on December 1st, so it's more a matter of when and how they announce it.

Tomorrow is more likely than last Friday simply given the JT tour is over and we're that much closer to Halloween with a Dia de los Muertos-themed video in the can. That said, compared to a Friday, does a Monday/Tuesday release have any benefit? Early next week could also make sense.

Good points and question. I'm not sure if there's any actual data that suggests one day is better than the other. I think we're all assuming Friday just because that's when new music is normally released.

I wasn't really expecting any teaser today, if things are coming out tomorrow. Maybe later we might here that Bono is going to be on Kroq or something, but I would think they would just drop it out there tomorrow. But who knows. Would be cool to hear a little rumbling today.

I sure hope you're right in that we'll hear something this week. I'm starved for info

Though I can't say I'm thrilled with the arrangement they did for ASOH, it would still have been nice to see it live, they dropped it by the time I saw the show in London.

I believe U2 just doesn't think some of these songs work live (including some JT songs), and I'm convinced ASOH is one of them. The difference however between ASOH and TJT songs is that they have to play the latter, they're sorta committed to that. But they could drop ASOH, and did, so that's that.

That said, the more I think about it the more I'm OK with them dropping ASOH. It's my favourite U2 song of all time, but the reality is they've never really been able to nail the song live, even on TUF tour. The atmospherics on ASOH (and most of that record) are just hard to recreate live. As great as the song is, there's a reason they haven't played it for decades (except for the odd performance here and there) before this tour. They probably know what they're doing.
