The odd thing is that depending on what shows you went to, those songs weren't exactly mainstays in the sets. For example...

Elevation:
360: 94/110 shows
I&E: 32/76 shows

Pride:
360: 65/110 shows
I&E: 76/76 shows

Elevation wasn't even played at half of the I&E shows, but I heard it at 2 of my 3 from that year. And each time, it got one of the biggest reactions of the night, which shows why it might come out more often than not. I remember being at the first 360 show where Pride got played too, after they avoided it at all the European shows before that.

I know a lot of fans on here dislike them...but like it or not, songs like Elevation and Vertigo get the crowd MOVING. That's why they have usually stuck around in the tours since their release (except for I&E). I would be shocked if U2 doesn't include at least one or both of these songs in TJT tour. You need to have songs that get the crowd pumped up and those tend to do the trick.
