Who Will Be The Next U2???

***disclaimer*** Of course there can never be another U2, but here's my
question for everyone...

        Look into the next decade...who will tour the world's stadiums, ride
around in mirrorball lemons (figuratively speaking), and sing to the
millions the way U2 has done throughout the 80's and 90's (and hopefully
longer!)? Is it someone yet unheard of?
        We've had pretenders to the thrown in the 90's...Oasis, Smashing
Pumpkins, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Spice Girls (haha), etc...but none of
these groups have held the imagination of the world like U2 has...why
not? Is this the end of the stadium rock era? Was U2 blessed with
perfect timing or can their success be attributed to the "Bono"-factor?
        Curious to read what you may think!


...another day, another lemon...

P.S. At the moment I'd put my money on Radiohead, the Verve, or even the
Prodigy...but they all seem a couple great albums away, though.
