Et Tu, Bono?

The U2 concert at Rice-Eccles Stadium on May 24 was the first and probably the last U2 concert that I will attend.

Tickets ranged from $30 to $250, and there wasn’t a bad seat in the house. A huge claw-like contraption on the south end of the field housed an elaborate lighting and sound system, and a 360-degree television monitor encircled a round stage below.

For the price that some paid to attend the concert, don’t you think U2’s Bono would’ve shut the hell up and put his personal agenda and political posturing aside for once, and just played some great music? It’s no wonder U2’s music has become so irrelevant over the years. They haven’t produced a decent single since their All That You Can’t Leave Behind album came out in 2000.

Concerts are for music. Period. Politics? That’s what TV awards shows and the Internet are for.
