Just started listening to it. Those fans asking the questions must be on Interference. Incredible.

Some of those fan questions were so cliched and generic. Also sounded like they were being read from a cue card/teleprompter; cynic in me wonders if they were even actual fans. Never listened to one of these before but I assumed it would be more spontaneous and less rehearsed. Nothing interesting worth sharing on here.

My big takeaway is that Songs of Experience is nowhere near ready.

Also: Larry basically told setlist complainers to shove it since diehards represent only 20% of a show's audience.

I didn't hear or read the interview. Not surprising I guess, but what did they say that suggests Songs of Experience is not anywhere close to being ready?

Edge was very clear that the band is taking their time. He said something also along the lines of "we are nowhere near the finished product, but we are excited with what we have so far"

In other words: 4-6 years to release

Well, it´s about the approach they have chosen. They want to play for big venues, to please the casual fans, so they have to play their biggest hits every night for most of the show. The negative aspect is, the hardcore fans will be bored and the band also can get burned along the way,,,
