"I think the Irish and Argentinian have a lot in common. We think too much... We drink too much... And we are religious - but we argue with God! And when we are not arguing with God... We argue with the British!"
- Bono, on the 3rd concert in La Plata, April 3rd 2011.
The Popmart stage design, which looked like a supermarket, appealed to Bono as a supermarket, with its myriad choices and temptations, could function as a metaphor for U2's songs, as they often deal with the struggle between desire and faith.
