It was an important thing to do. I didn't  want to know exactly what Bono was doing during songs, which snippets were played, what the screenart is during songs or which songs before or after were played.

A lot of people don't want to know ahead of time what the show will bring. Others (like me!) follow daily on youtube because we have absolutely no will power to stay away! I
think spoiler alerts are a good thing.

It has all its prés and cons to follow the band in details.

Do not see spoilers:
- You will be totally surprised
- Everything they do is very special
- You won't be angry if you miss a good song

Follow closely:
- You'll be freaking out when you hear a live debut/rare song
- You see more details

I did a sort of semi this tour. So I knew ASOH and IWF were rare this tour, but I didn't freak out (I do now because it was their last ASOH performance :o). But I was still hoping for The Little Things. When I went to Muse knew the setlist from A-Z. I had the surprise for Bliss, but got angry I didn't get Reapers.

I understand in this day and age people not wanting spoilers - especially since U2 doesn’t vary the show much night to night - I saw them in Miami recently and I knew everything that was about to happen before it happened
