It will receive the Pop treatment. 1 song to start the tour and then it will probably be dropped for New Years Day a couple of months in.

No line is great live, Boots as well, Breathe I love, White as snow, Stand up would be interesting and Moment of Surrender is always a winner. Magnificent is good but maybe over exposed by now.

? Pop had a pretty decent presence on the Elevation Tour IIRC; regular Gone and Discotheque on the first two legs, acoustic Please every night on the last leg, WUDM and Staring at the Sun popping up from time to time. Not great, but not much worse than HTDAAB on 360 which only got two songs, albeit every night.

I went to 2 Elevation shows and there was 1 Pop song played at each. As U2's next tour will have another decades worth of material to choose from my guess will be that we will see either 1 or no songs from No Line played each night.

Hear hear... sadly though... it won't happen.  I think we can count on Moment of Surrender and maybe Magnificent from time to time.

The most likely candidates are Get On Your Boots and I'll Go Crazy...   Personally, I like NLOTH, but that's doubtful.

It wouldn't surprise me if none of the songs from NLOTH make the next tour.

I reckon they might play I'll Go Crazy in the style of the album version.  It would provide poppy light relief - in place of Elevation, hopefully.

They've never completely abandoned an album on the next tour. Hell, they played 4 songs from Pop on Elevation, didn't they?

I think on the next tour they really need to go back to the drawing board and build from the ground up.

If they play another hits & warhorses tour, there's no reason for them to play anything from NLOTH.

I think it's safe to say they will distance themselves from Boots, but I can see Magnificent at least coming back, particularly since fans voted it so high on U22.

They need to check out some lemon U2 YouTube videos and learn how to play fez.

Those guys could teach U2 a thing or two about playing U2 songs.
