Without Larry there is no U2. No way should they tour without him.
They should also NOT do an AB tour or residency even with Larry. The JT anniversary tour was a real bummer to me and while there were some great moments, overall the tour(s) lacked the magic I’m used to seeing from the band.
They should either go forward with Larry and new music or call it quits. I’d rather see them mine their back catalog of shelved releases and live material in retirement than see them try and wow a Las Vegas audience with technology and staging that inevitably will pale in comparison to the zeitgeist of AB and the original Zoo TV tour.
Absolutely NO! U2 = Larry x Adam x Edge x Bono, NONE of them can be replaced! I love every member of the band and I doubt they can have the same high level and energy of performance with one member missing.
Larry please get well soon!!!
"One has to be real, one has to be honest and truthful. But I think to lose hope is to allow despondency to take over.. And that's, I think, where U2 would generally try and get engaged."
