In the latest issue of Ireland rock magazine Hot Press, the Stereo MC’s (back with a new album 9 years after the brilliant ‘Connected’) comment on their stint on the road with U2’s Zoo TV tour: “I can’t diss anything about that ‘cos it was great and U2 were brilliant and everybody on the tour was really friendly, but it just wasn’t really what we should’ve been doing. These shows tend to be once every four days, and there was a lot of dead time just kicking around imploding on ourselves, ‘cos you can’t just zip back to England for a couple of days and try to do something creative…” I suppose another go at it is out of the question then? Let’s face it, they were the best band ever to open for U2 and they’d be brilliant for the Elevation tour.
