I'm glad to see that ISHFWILF received zero votes as of now.  I realize that it was one of their only two #1 hits in the US, but it is so overplayed.  Hopefully U2 will actually play the entire album on this new JT tour and not just the hits.

Fingers crossed that the new tour includes the top three songs on this poll:
Exit
One Tree Hill
Red Hill Mining Town

Nice to hear from the Edge and Adam interviews that the band will indeed be playing the album in full.

I wonder what greatest hits songs they'll play before and after the JT set.

Surprised to see that Red Hill Mining Town is not the top voted song since it has never been played live before.

I've had TJT on loop  for a few days now. I'm hoping Mothers rises to the occasion. I've always skipped the track, but it's growing on me this week. Outside, as the the sun sets, quiet audience (no one is singing along to it) - maybe it could be elevated?

Totally agree.  There's a couple of cover bands on YouTube that really give Red Hill Mining Town its due justice.  There's no reason for U2 not to deliver strong on this song.

Many years back I recall reading an article in Rolling Stone where Bono said he felt the song was unfinished ...that it needed a horn section.  I'm hoping U2 reinvents these songs for the upcoming tour.  Maybe each JT song can receive it's ISHFWILF a la New Voices of Freedom back vocals live version.

I voted for RHLT but Bullet the Blue Sky was amazing on the last tour, amazing.

I really like the song and was disappointed they didn't play in live in Europe on the original TJT.  They did play it a few times in the USA that year, and this is the live arrangement they used: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
