Sarcasm really is dead.

That's what the next tour should do.

I want U2 to bring sarcasm back with a new hit single SarcasmBack.

And they need samples. Plenty of samples. For example, Comic Book Guy should be sampled for the chorus:

"Oooh, a sarcasm detector, that's a really useful invention!"

I'd like to see them mix up the stage setup a bit. Ellipse/Heart were awesome, but I think they could do something different with it, something along the lines of this:

Have Edge kick Bono into rehearsal so he finally starts to rehearse some new songs. Threaten to nuke Africa if he doesn't.
  • Fight scalping. And I'm not talking about the dudes outside of the venues.
    I'm talking E-bay and the agencies. Its getting worse all the time. And as it gets harder to get tickets and scalping drives up prices, why should I get tickets? Especially if all shows are the same from start to finish.
  • Have somebody shut up Bono when he starts to talk about Africa. It's gotten completely out of control on this tour. 2 to 3 friggin' minutes are way to much. Force him to be concise. If your speech lasts so long that by the end you want to nuke Africa instead of helping it, its definately not working. And if he goes on, let Edge do a guitar solo!
  • No more stadiums. Stadiums suck! Especially if you have to sit in the back thanks to the scalpers buying up all the good tickets. If I have to sit way up in the back, I'd rather it be in an Arena where the band still can be seen, instead of me having to use the hubble telescop
  • Either give the tapers free reign to tape their shows to get good quality boots. Or start selling them through U2.com. And use the proceeds for charity or something so Bono can be happy.
  • And finally, never EVER use that security company again that was used on the Munich gig. Friggin' asshole bastards!
I agree with all of this...

--rolling stones type tour... stadiums/arenas/clubs all on the same leg.
--huge multimedia zootv/popmart type clusterfuckoramasepctacular... get adventerous again. do something that will blow my mind and have even the biggest of u2 haters look at it and go "damn... that's pretty fucking cool." do this and i will turn a blind eye to the non-rotating setlists.
--ellipse/heart type set up, but changed up a bit so as not to look exactly the same... let's face it, the ellipse rocks
--less preach, more rock... the thing where you took out your cellphones and signed up for the one campaign was cool, but it didn't need to be preceeded by a 10 minute disertation. use other means to spread the message... more volunteers in and around the venue handing out information, taking e-mail addresses, etc. etc. less talk, more action. mention it... we know, it's u2, you care, it's expected... just don't run it into the ground. if you're gonna take 5+ minutes out of the show, spread it out... or do something cool like the zoo phone calls or somethin'.
--do not play the same song twice again. not ever. when you were young and didn't have enough songs to fill the setlist, fine... it was still kinda lame then, but ok. now? lameosity to end all lameness. don't do it. it sucks. play a b-side... play an rare oldie... play a cover. do something, just don't play the same fucking song twice.
--mix up the songs a little. i mean come on... really. you use a teleprompter, what's the issue? just do it
--talk to eddie vedder. take notes.

What else can be done, really? They go big, the tour gets compared to Zoo TV and Popmart, they go arenas, the tour (as we saw last time around) gets compared to Elevation. Setlists - maybe a bit more Pop but after last tour no real complaints here. You're not PJ or Stones so relax.

Stage setup: Surprise us, I have a feeling ellipse/heart won't go down well this time. Just a hunch based on reaction on this tour.

Maybe a visual/audio attack on the senses - not the multimedia type like their 90s tours, but more like what they talked about before Vertigo: the technology where they can direct the sound in the arena where they're playing - remember those stories (the only thing is, how would they make that work in an outdoor/no roof venue?) ? Combined with where the state of the art visual technology in a few years time...try to play some Asia and cover Europe more the next time would be my biggest wish.

bono, baby... really... explore the space.

bono was very stationary, at least in the shows i saw, on this leg. he wasn't very creative with his running around and interaction with the crowd. perhaps it had to do with him needing to stay close to the teleprompter, but i'd like to see him move around a bit more, ala jagger, vedder, springsteener
