What would make you walk out of a U2 concert?

We all love this band and however much we voice our setlist gripes or complain about cringeworthy Bono-isms from time to time we're still always ecstatic to see them live. But what would your breaking point be?

What, if anything, would make you walk right out? Or what's the closet you've genuinely come to leaving?

Stand Up Comedy.

Either the song, or Bono trying out a new career.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

If they are going to make the shows even more 90s oriented than the last legs of 360 than I might just as well watch ZOOTV Sydney again.

- a Madonna duet (with Bono singing one of her songs as a snippet to rub salt in the wound)
- 'Bad' remix
- Bono asking the crowd if they're "ready for the drop"

If i suddenly noticed Tom Cruise standing next to me at the show, then it would be time to go.

Honestly though, I don't know. Even if something happened that seemed to upset me, I think I'd see it through to the end. It would take a lot.
