You actually expected one? With all the joke U2 3D threads, this really fitted in quite well.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

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."

Hey guys. I'm going to go see it two weekends from now at the IMAX with my brothers (it'll be my third time seeing it by then) and my grandparents want to come too. They're in their 70s. Do you think it's too intense?

Do they like U2? Or rock in general? My dad is 68 and he can't wait to go, I'm taking him Sunday. But he's always been a rock music fan. He went to Beatles and Stones concerts in the 60's, while I got babysat at home

I applaud your grandparents for wanting to go!

Honestly, I tend to get a little seasick but had no problem with this -- if they do, they can shut their eyes for a few seconds.

Have a great time!

There was an old lady with a walker at today's show. She had to be in her late 70s. She lived through the screening, I'm pleased to report.

It would be worth starting another U2 3D thread if she didn't

As an official "old broad", I can safely report that U2 3D is in no way "too intense" for old people. It was amazing! The sound was great, and the 3D was very subtle--not the "in-your-face-because-we can" 3D. By the way, my 68-year-old brother-in-law enjoyed it--he has never been to a U2 show, and he's ready to sign on for the next tour.
