U2 are a colossal band, humoungously large and presumably wealthy.
I went to see them last year with my bro and had a fantastic time, they put on am amazing show.
Earlier this year, they toured with the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree album, probably my favourite album of theirs with its hits of Where The Streets Have No Name, With Or Without You Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and my personal favourites of Bullet The Blue Sky and the haunting Running To Standstill.
But here’s the rub ..
On their tour, the band only played Dublin and London, other arenas in the more provincial cities like Glasgow were omitted from their tour.
For me that implies that they are happy to take our hard-earned dosh when it suits them, but only when it suits them.
Tonight, a U2 tribute band play St Lukes in Glasgow, a smallish venue of a 3-400 hundred souls, playing The Joshua Tree album in its entirety.
That will do for me.
So fuck you Bono .. you talk shit most of the time anyway.
There .. I feel better now!
