"We haven't been on the road since 2019. The U2 audience is such a phenomenal thing in our lives, doing these Vegas shows, even without Larry, felt like the right thing to do, because it's been so many years since we played. We just wanted to see them and be there. So it was a many faceted decision but this was the right call, I've absolutely no doubt about it. And we very much look forward to the next time we can climb on stage with Larry as our drummer. We will miss him terribly. But I think it's okay."
