U2 gets away from its roots

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR -

I mostly agreed with the re­view of the U2 con­cert at the Rose Bowl [“U2 Nur­tures ‘Tree,’ ” May 22]. One thing the re­viewer missed was that U2’s spir­i­tual side, once prom­i­nent, has been di­min­ished. I got into U2 in col­lege be­cause they were un­abashedly Chris­tian, singing anthems like “Glo­ria” and “I Will Fol­low.” What they’ve done in the in­ter­ven­ing years is re­placed the right­eous­ness with lib­eral self-right­eous­ness.
