360 and the current oil disaster

Given the size of it, do you think the tour will comment on the BP's oil leakage on the US shores ?

A song dedication, a speech or maybe just some visuals on the screen ?

Considering how much oil they're using carting around multiple stages for a tour spread out over two years, I would think they would open up themselves to a lot of easy criticism if they did so.

I'm not one to go around griping about hypocrisy when anyone speaks out against BP, but I could very easily see that happening and hope they don't do it.

Yeah, like Cori said. There would be quite a backlash. Massive tours are in no position to talk about environmental problems or disasters.

Maybe to celebrate Bono will 'leak' some of the new U2 songs, via BP's website.
