Walled Off U2 Berlin Appearance

The short set U2 did Thursday (11/5) near the site where the Berlin Wall once stood was done within a walled-off area, an irony that was not at all amusing to fans without tickets hoping to be able to see the show.  Reaction ranged from disappointment to outrage over the band's decision to perform a free concert behind a wall.  The six song set, which was beamed from Brandenburg Gate to the MTV Awards event in London, included another betrayal in the opinion of a lot of fans - a rap version of Sunday, Bloody Sunday, with Jay Z joining the band on stage.  And Bono wonders why No Line On The Horizon has not sold better.
