Wishful thinking, but a release that cover ms a JT30 show, and a show from each leg of this tour (because the sets are now quite different) would be ideal, and totally unrealistic
What happened to the recorded DC show?

great visuals but, uh sorry, it did not sound great at all, Bono mumbling, band off sync and why the f were they doing this up in the screen? this tune needs to be played down on the main stage.

but good on them for finally (too late?) abandoning the lame early set lists.

I don't see it as them abandoning the narrative of the show, but changing it. Yes, the Innocence part is now gone. It was a repeat of 2015 so that part of the story has been told. Instead, they now go to the early Nineties. They have grown up, are becoming men. And find out that whereas the world seems to get together (a bit) with the fall of The Wall, etc. they themselves seem to be growing apart.

It might not be as strong a narrative as the Innocence one, but they are still very much telling a story. Their story.

Seriously nobody goes to a rock show for a narrative. It’s the kind of thing that gets air time in a forum but which has no real world relevance. Too much talk about narratives.

I saw a U2 cover band last summer. I liked their “narrative”, which was playing U2 songs. IWF into Gloria into BD into Desire into Te Fly into Vertigo into Real Thing into Electric Co into NYD, etc. I realized I want U2 to do a show like this. Just play U2 sons with no narrative. Elevation was like that.

They were fucking awful. The guitarist was the only one who came close to having his shit down.
