I still don't get your point, and also you're wrong.

Bands that are over thirty years that are not dying:
Bruce Springsteen
Paul McCartney
Green Day
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Metallica

Those are just off the top of my head, and guess what - not limited to just "soft rock"


The point is that U2 is not dying, and neither of the above bands are who are over 30 years old - far from it. But Bon Jovi's recent releases, while not embarrassing for this community apparently, are still the laughing stock of everyone else.

my point is,Jovi played more shows than bands you mention,only Springsteen and Metallica in the terms of filling stadiums and arenas are either equal or have more audience,Jovis only mistake is album every two years from 2000.with decrease in quality,but bands you mention also didnt have top albums and they did 4 and more years pauses between albums that contribute filling stadiums and arenas more than Jovi these days.

Jovi albums have also sold and charted better than most of the artists mentioned above too, with the exception of Metallica's most recent release...

This House doesn't really count towards your typical Jovi release... it's the bands first real album and tour without Richie... I don't think the promoter's really knew what to expect... And Jon's voice is on a steady decline... At this age and at this stage in the game, this might be all Jon wants...

Bottom line...They had a successful first leg in North America doing Arenas due to the cold winter. I think they went well above everyone's expectations in many different areas... For someone to say they can't do this and that, it's all bullshit until they try...

Before this tour I've read people post... Jon could never do We Don't Run live, Jon will never make it through the tour with his voice, attendance sales will be down (of which people were saying they were up until the final numbers posted)... And guess what??? Everyone was wrong... So to say they can't do Stadiums in Europe or the US is utter shit at this point...

Hey guys ... just came back from Twickenham, here's a short review from a very casual fan. Now keep in mind ... I don't love U2. There are some songs I like. I'm not familiar with most of their songs, and this was my third concert. Last one was on the 360 tour.

.Noel was BRILLIANT. His voice doesn't get old, it's incredible. I'm a huge Oasis diehard so I loved his opening set.
.Up until With or Without You, the show was stellar. The energy of the crowd was immense, and as Bono said it, this could have been an epic night. Too bad it went downhill from there.
.From WOWY onwards, the show lost a lot of momentum and it dragged. Of course the casual fans are not familiar with side 2 of The Joshua Tree, but I felt as if the band was going through their motions during most of the songs. It felt uninspired, and when they finished, they went into an encore break with just 1 hour and twenty minutes of showtime. It was very weird.
.The encore opener was terrible. Miss Sarajevo is one of the few songs from U2 that I listen to regularly, and I remember being impressed by Bono's vocals on it on the 360 tour, but the playback part it's a joke. If he can't sing it anymore, don't play it. No one cared for the song and for the political message on the big screen. Don't get me wrong, but I don't think a rock and roll concert is the place to preach about wars, poverty and stuff. I donate a lot of money, clothes , and food for charity every year, but when I'm at a rock concert that's not what I want to be hearing or reading about. The song only sucked more energy from the crowd.
.The combo Beautiful Day/Elevation/Vertigo must be similar to It's my lige,Bad Name, etc... Well known songs that regained some of the energy back, but that was it.
.Ultraviolet was horrible. Another song that I listen to a lot, but Bono butchered it.
.They closed with a rushed and very anticlimactic performance of One. Bono said a few thank you's and left the stage. Everyone was sure there was another encore coming. When the house lights came on, a lot of people booed. It was the most anticlimactic ending of a show that I've ever seen.
.I thought that Bono's vocals were weak. He struggled a lot and dodged a lot of notes, butchering songs like Ultraviolet for example.
.Too many samples and back tracks. There are songs that seemed like karaoke.

I liked my other two shows. That's the reason why I came back for a third one. But apart from the first 30 minutes or so, this one unfortunately sucked ...

I realize this thread is about U2 but the band could absolutely not do stadiums in the US or else they would have. I still think he doesn't have the vocal strength to sing We don't Run. His tone makes it so obvious how doctored the studio version is. The fact that Europe still hasn't been announced really worries me.
