"California" would be a monster opener...or better yet, the 2nd song behind "The Miracle." Or thew other way around. Helluva 1-2 punch either way.  :D

The Miracle or Volcano would be perfect.  Maybe California

If they do an acoustic set (hoping they don't), Invisible would be great as the song after it.

I think as the night starts and the band make there way to the stage i think 'This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now' plays on the speakers, the band gets on stage and it fades away or something weird happens, Bono tells the crowd to start singing "Barbara, Santa Barbara" the band kick in with this and start playing 'California'  8)

I can see California opening the shows in the American leg. Ideally, Volcano followed by Cedarwood Road will kill it live.

I'd be very surprised if The Miracle isn't the opener, and if they don't find some way, Elevation 2001-style, to get the crowd doing the "OH-OH"s for a longer time before that first crunchy guitar riff kicks in.

I agree it could be "California", with the "Bar-bar-Barbara santa Barbara" being on the intercom before band takes the stage. If not it will open one of the encores. If it isn't "California" then "Volcano" is likely. "Breathe" suffered as an opener on 360 by being a bit of a slower tempo than usual openers, and I think "The Miracle" would have the same issue.

The Miracle has the chanting Ohs, so just draw that out, get the crowd doing it, and it moves well in the beginning. I think it would work.

How about the stage goes out into the crowd and some how they come out from that way? Just Bono and Edge with his crunchy guitar?
