SUPER U2 @ SUPERBOWL?!

From Interference.com:

U2 playing Superbowl 1/2 time. They supposedly signed the contract in Las Vegas. This was announced on a Chicago sports radio station, and is our second confirmation of this rumor. More details to come as we get them.

Hmmmm........ yay! If its true!

Shit, its about time... I'm tired of watching NSuck and Britney during halftime.

Should be great...lets just hope they don't do anything regrettable like Aerosmith did...just a pure U2 performance.

Meeting Larry:

*Larry smiles and says "Thank you that's very nice of you"*
*Larry signs paper, shakes MG's hand*
*MG almost dies then sees tearaway pants and gets bad ideas*

They BETTER play something besides Elevation and Stuck. How cool would it be if they busted out The Fly or something!? I don't see it happening tho.

It would be cool...however, we all know it won't happen. They will play Elevation, Beautiful Day, Walk On, and/or Stuck. Remember...this isn't a concert for us die-hard fans...it's a half-time show for U2 dum-dums. Hopefully the crowd will be "with it" enough to get into the show and be enthusiastic. And hopefully the acoustics will be better than they were on Leno (ugh!).

Ugh. Double ugh. It'll be U!! S!! A!!
And then right into Walk On.
Not that there's anything wrong with that but been there, done that. I actually
switched over from Leno to FX to watch the Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon once I realized it was going to be Walk On again.
Dear God, that's worrisome isn't it? Not only did I choose a television show called BUFFY over u2 but I chose a Buffy RE-RUN!

It depends how long they get to play. I predict two new songs plus at least one of the classics.

Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

Wouldn't Sunday Bloody Sunday be appropriate for the Super Bowl? (certainly for the losing team at least)

It's just U2 right? I'll be pissed if they perform with other shitty bands...if it's just them, then great! One more complaint--don't play Stuck. I've heard it so many times it makes me want to yak (not one of my favorites).

Matthew- Buffy rocks.

Back to the matter at hand... I just had a fearful thought... U2 + the 'What's Going On' gang... Oh GOD! Britney, Destiny's Child... NSUCK again!! It could happen... Let's hope it doesn't. Unfortunately the superbowl halftime show is about spectacle, marketing and bringing in the audience... Will good old Elevation be enough?

Well, honestly...if they don't play Two Hearts Beat as One...I will be so pissed. I mean, c'mon. It's time that they acknowledged their earlier work! Campaign for Two Hearts! Better yet...I think they should pull out Elvis Presley and America in a live setting. What better place to unveil live rarities than a non-U2-loving, beer-guzzling, football crowd?

When I first heard about this stunt (and it is a publicity stunt done solely to sell records) I was pissed off. I thought what has happened to band that sand "Silver and Gold", "Please", "The Playboy Mansion", and countless other songs about redemption and material corruption? Then I thought, WOW! this should be pretty cool. I think I'll respond to this thread. And then it occured to me that I was right all along. U2 has given into siren song of $$$$$$ (Cash). Is there anything wrong with that? I don't know, but it sure sounds like their goal is not just about changing the world.

If Bono rips into one of his patent tyraids on world peace and "no war...no more" he might save his reputation. Otherwise, I fear they WILL embarass themselves as Aerosmith did last year.

In my opinion U2 are becoming a part of the very thing they mocked and fought against in POP and POPmart- commercialism. The only reason POPmart was, infact not pop, was the irony, the fact that everyone knew that despite trying their hardest to give the impression that they were only interested in making money, there were higher levels involved. I feel they are treading a very thin line here between trying to be big (which I think is great), and 'selling out'.

The definition of selling out, for me is as follows- when an artist tries to become popular on the terms of the masses and not their own. When what they are creating andf playing is dictated by what OTHERS think is good and not their own. Whether U2 are doing that, I dont know. But I am uncertain, and so are many others. Only time will tell, I guess.

I think the latest album, the exhaustive U.S. touring, t.v. appearances, and now the SUPERBOWL, are all U2's attempt to stay on as a relevant pop force (especially in America). They don't want to become what REM has become. And if they want to stay POPular, who can blame them???
