They should really shake it up and play Boy or October in it's entirety.  First half of show.   They should switch it up every other night or so.   Then the 2nd half of the show is the old favorites and a few from the new album.  BOOM!

With the looking back to their beginnings on this album, I would expect a few songs off Boy and possibly October to make an appearance.

In fact that has given me an idea.....

Super extended drum intro with Larry Adam and Edge chanting "Shake, shake" before breaking into A Celebration

Love to see that :)

The more I think about this, I think that playing Beautiful Ghost/Introduction To Songs Of Experience over the PA in the dark as something atmospheric and mood-setting is displayed on the screen while the band quietly takes the stage before exploding into The Miracle would be the best way to kick off the show.

I've always thought lady with the spinning head would be a great opener

Yes Lady With A Spinning Head or Invisible.

Invisible would be a weak opener.

I would respectfully disagree. I think it has tour opener written all over it. Of course I could be very wrong about that.

Yep!

I think a live version of invisible could be a great opener, like cobl

Would be cool if they opened with Invisible and went straight into COBL right after.

OK the house light go out the crowd roars like the sound of the sea a vast array of images of the band from 1980 through 2011 fill up the screens as let's go native plays in the background Larry walks towards his new electronic drum counsel as Adam straps on his bass,the cheers reach fever pitch as Bono and Edge stroll down the catwalk . Bono and Edge  begin too chant There is no them, there is no them ,as they blaze into Invisible followed by a fiery version of Mofo which then segues into a reworked version of like a song!

OMG YES!!!

It's got to be "the miracle". It has the perfect opening sequence to a show. Edge's guitar riff kicks it off, we all go nuts and sing along with "Ohhhhh ohh"s
