The Conclusion consolidates the various threads in order to solidify the idea that the band signifies a cosmopolitanism that has as its driving force a particular “flavour” of Christianity. Primarily, the conclusion explores what cosmopolitanism might mean for U2 in contemporary society, and briefly considers Songs of Experience, released at the end of 2017.
