Hmm, you call small piece of black paint on his eyes insanity? so what are his previous characters then

I don't want to go over this ad infinitum, but you've got to admit that The Fly was cool. The glasses/leather hadn't been played out by Bono, IT SUITED THE MUSIC, and the personality was badass. I can understand how his Macphisto image could be embarrassing for some, but it was for a character, which had a considered personality to go along with it. Unless "middle aged rock star going through his mother's makeup kit simply because he can" is a new character they're cooking up, seeing this look on a regular basis would be tough to swallow. Of course, this is a moot point, because he's not going to stick with this look for more than one or two photo shoots. I have no idea why we're even still talking about this.

How is him wearing eyeliner and a hat anything new? He's done it multiple times in the past (which is why some have been able to make parallels with past looks), but it just looks worse because it's been played out, and because he's older now. Again, the other looks were more fresh and made sense within the context of the album and tour.

Eyeliner (only), yes, it is new for Bono. The hat ? Of course not (and I did say he should lose it, along with the umbrella). Age should not be a factor, it's whether or not he can pull it off. He can. It looks badass from where I'm looking. It will only look bad if he does it on tour and it gets smudged acros his face.

The shades were played out. The leather jackets were played out. And U2 will still probably do both. As have plethora of rock bands.

I would actually like to see Eyeliner Man become a character on the No Puns On The Horizon tour. He could be an allegory for selling out, and Edge could be The Eternal Flame of Rock N' Roll.

They can do battle every night during Until The End Of The World.

I've had no issues with his images throughout the years. I like to see what he's going to do next and don't take these things so seriously. You on the other hand have been complaining about the eyeliner since day 1.

And btw, you haven't heard the album so you have no idea if it will "SUIT THE MUSIC" sufficiently for you to accept the eyeliner.

Larry could be Tony Blair and fight on Bono's side

Also looking good with the 'liner

The Fly was cool/badass etc. Macphisto and the Popmart look ? Not so much and the music wouldn't really lose anything without them.

How can eyeliner suit the music? I hate how it looks on him, but it's just eyeliner.

More than the music, let's wait for the tour and see what the eyeliner is saying.
