Something that is really starting to confuse me...

I read on this forum all the time how they should drop pride, and bring Breathe back as an opener (when it was dropped), but yet i come to read some reviews from some other sites, and i see "Dissapointed they dropped Pride", "They should drop Breathe"), etc etc, i just think it goes to show that the band cannot win, no matter what they do someone somewhere is always dissapointed.

I think you'll find it's called plurality and thank goodness we have it, even if it creates disagreement.

Well, that's the thing when you've got a band that's been on top of the world for 20 years or so and has a gajillion fans - you're just never going to please everybody.

Hell, it happens with cult bands with small fan bases too.

My honest opinion? I read that and conclude that the people on the other sights aren't real fans, just casual listeners.... but who knows! lol!

How is that confusing? Someone somewhere has a different opinion...

Furthermore, it doesn't mean change is useless. If 30% of the fanbase is content at present, there's obviously room for improvement... this despite the fact that, post-changes, ZooMac202222 creates a thread saying he dislikes said changes.

It's just starting to confuse you?

I'm getting used to it, it's normal. I think it's quite entertaining.

There is just no need to make countless new threads for every little thing that someone here might like or not like about a certain show.

Ah, nice try, but the number is more like 95% of the fanbase is content with the setlist. Therefore, screwing with it radically, especially in terms of removing one of U2's most popular sing-alongs of all time, Pride, is dumb.

Much as I like them to mix things up I'm still delighted to hear Pride when I'm at a gig. It's great to see the casual fans going nuts for it, it makes for a much better atmosphere.
