If these dorks can put Adam's wang in the AB30 deluxe release, they can give me a vault-clearing, mega-deluxe edition of Pop for its 25th birthday. Tack on some choice Passengers outtakes while they're at it.

Instead, I bet they're going to announce a JT35 VR Dolby Atmos 3D-in-4D-at-Home Experience and then just never release it.

Abso-fucking-lutely!! I'm sure there is a bonus disc's worth of great, previously unheard shit from 1993-97. I'm sick of U2 being so scared to acknowledge the Pop era, because their egos got hurt when a few stadiums were half empty, and the album sold 8 million instead of 15 million or whatever.

And with another racy cover photo they can call it Big Pop(pa)

Take my money now.

Surely for once, there's a good amount of stuff in the vault for that period given how those albums came about? I bet the Passengers thing generated a lot of material and we all know the trials and tribulations of Pop, not to mention experimentation with loops & drum machines when Larry was injured.

With this and what Adam talked about, we really don’t know what’s coming next. . Acoustic arrangements, to me save that for a future vault set, and I’d rather hear about continued work on a new album. ZOO 30th Anniversary Tour would be unbelievable, but that could delay a new album even further so we will see. Hopefully lots of 2022 activity, ZOO tour would be a bonus, and then 2023/2024 new album/new tour is my guess.

Usual vague "lost in the music" quote from Edge. 2023 at the earliest.

Also, I'm... wary of a ZooTV 30th tour. Some things just shouldn't be returned to. Why take the greatest tour ever and do a sub-par version of it? Eh. I don't like it. Make music instead please.

At least I think they can be inspired by potentially reinventing themselves again while reflecting on Achtung Baby while throwing new ideas around. Choosing a producer is going to be the most important thing for them (us).

I really hope they don't do something for Zoo TV - I get celebrating albums, but tours are very much "of a time" with so many things making them unique & special at the time including the age of the performers. I really don't want to see a pastiche of that as the indoor shows in particular were so unique and amazing in terms of the atmosphere, passion, anger... a band at the absolute peak of their live powers. Just let things be.

It'll be cool finding out who they (eventually) go with for producer. That will give a rough sense of the direction they're headed. Plus at that point we'll know the album's more formally underway.

The fact they haven't gone right back to Tedder immediately is quite promising. Fingers crossed they're looking for someone new, and hopefully a fresh new direction away from SoI and SoE.

Who would you guys most like to see as producer for the next album?

Actually glad to read that he’s working with Adam at this early stage instead of just doing demos on his own.

If we are talking final album. My first choice would Eno/Lanois and Flood.
Second Choice - Eno and Flood
Third choice - Flood and Andy Barlow

I haven't read the article, but if they are talking about someone totally new, I have often dreamt of Scott Litt producing a U2 album. Although not even sure he's active anymore.

Obviously I've mentioned before Nigel Godrich. Godrich/Eno/Flood. Yikes that would something.

I also really like most of the stuff that Phil Ek has produced. Great atmospheres on a lot of those albums.

agreed. I think instead of spinning out on his own or with Bono, Adam seems like a good choice.

I don’t want a ZooTV anniversary tour, but it would be great to get a small handful of ZooTV shows with releases on streaming platforms, both audio and video.

if U2 wanted to do a 2 year anniversary tour of Ahimsa, i'd be down with it. honestly there was a time not too long ago when nobody knew if large scale global tours were going to be a thing again. so if they want to get out there just for shits and giggles? fine by me.

Flood Gang! Edge/Flood/Eno again would be great. Throw Barlow in for any "harder" numbers.

ZooTV should definitely be commemorated by expanding documentation of the era. I know it's been discussed on here, but I think at best a one-off show broadcast all across the universe would work. Anything more than that, and I'm having trouble imagining them effectively rescaling the show to not only cater to today's technology, but also a bunch of 60 year olds who are no longer larger-than-life. As applicable as ZooTV's basic concept is to today, it was IMO first and foremost a living extension of the music, atmosphere and attitude of Achtung Baby. All that being said, I'd still go.

Outside of North American and pockets of Europe, we're still not sure when large concerts will be. That could be why Edge is speaking with hesitancy about the tour. The concert situation in Europe for next summer is still very uncertain. Places like Australia and Asia will be years before concerts return, most likely.

Ok, so reading the little "interview" with The Edge. Good news and bad news.

Good news -
1. Sounds like YSSML was sort of just a little one off thing that was sort of fun but didn't mean anything in the larger picture.

2. I get the need for a break after almost 5 years straight of touring and recording. And his comment about going so long you lose momentum and get worn down. (But we are going on year 2-3 from the last tour boys. Lets get goin.

3. Talking about them listening to music again. Ok. So this could be good or bad depending on what they are listening to. But it at least would seem that they are looking for ideas and inspiration. Hopefully good ones.

4. Edge saying he's having fun working on songs because there are no expectations or limitations. Could that mean more "outside the box" stuff. Hopefully.

Bad news

1. 2. and 3. Martin Garrix!!! Come on man.
