ah makes sense now.

i'd like to hear at least EBW, Cedarwood, Iris. Miracle, SFS i'm okay on not hearing.

Oh yeah, I can't believe I forgot EBW. I'd like to hear that one, too. Iris is a pretty solid song and I do enjoy Cedarwood. I certainly wouldn't be opposed to hearing any of those.

I like the idea of the full J.T. being the centerpiece of the show, followed by an all (or mostly) A.B. encore.  I wonder about the first set, though.  As much as I'd prefer that it be comprised entirely of pre-J.T. songs, I just can't see the band leaving out both "Beautiful Day" and "Vertigo".  One or both will surely make their way into the encore or first set, much as I wouldn't mind a break from both songs.

I'll just see what's the set list in may. That's the only way to be sure...

Haha, just kidding. It's fun guessing the set list :). But I'm hoping they'll do the Fly in the encore instead of mysterious ways. That would be more like 'chopping down  the Joshua Tree'.

If they do it the right way, they really can make a piece of art of the show. I still believe in them!

Hardcore fans are probably burnt out on MW. Casual fans (or at least all that I've come into contact with) tend to love MW. However, casual fans constitute a lot of the attendance at U2 concerts...so they kind of have to play to that.

Agree :/ I tend to notice at the majority of shows I've been to MW is a crowd pleaser that most can move to which I believe at the time of show they want. But...grrrrr...lol

Well I've got not a real problem with MW. It fits on the album and maybe it was OK during ZooTV. But I think it is overplayed and the performance wasn't their best if you compare it to the rest of their show.

I think MW had to be a song played for just during ZooTV and maybe later as a rarety. Like they did with a lot of songs.

Seeing Mysterious Ways sort of makes me feel not so bad about not getting a ticket. Seen it every gig and heard it a gazzillion times.

This set should really be 24-26 songs spanning 1980-1987. Pretty easy actually as I posted previously, sort of like this;

Out Of Control
The Electric Co
I Will Follow
Gloria
October
New Years Day
Sunday Bloody Sunday
The Unforgettable Fire
A Sort of Homecoming
MLK      .................blends into.......Streets (remember Superbowl 2002 anyone??)
------JT------
Where The Streets Have No Name
I Still Haven't Found...
Red Hill Mining Town
In Gods Country
Trip Through Your Wires
One Tree Hill
Exit
Bullet The Blue Sky
Running To Stand Still
With Or Without You
Mothers of the Disappeared
-----
11 O'Clock Tick Tock
Pride
Bad
"40"

Really dont think playing ANYTHING from the 90's onwards makes ANY sense. If this is a nostalgia show then make it a PROPER 80's nostalgia show. Make it a show that U2 would do in 1987 with obvious technical advancements (B-stage, video screens, lighting, etc).
Does the above setlist REALLY need Mysterious Ways and Vertigo? I mean, outside of the JoshTree segment... just LOOK at the 1st 10 songs takes you through a quick recap of U2's greatest hits leading up to Joshua Tree (the songs are in album release order and it still works!), its immense and the encore is classic.

Are stadium audiences too zoned out now to handle it?

Heck, Ive not even added any obscure B-Sides or Drowning Man (oh boy, please guys!), Seconds, Two Hearts Beat As One, Surrender, Tomorrow, Twilight, etc....

I honestly doubt they will stick to an 80s only playlist. This is U2 we are talking about. 75% of the audience is going to be a casual fan that wants to hear Vertigo, Beautiful Day, One, etc. Personally I don't mind hearing hearing anything 90s. I'd love to hear anything from Achtung Baby (not so much MW though). I bet they may sneak a new song in a few nights.

The truth is that they probably consider that all side 2 of TJT are rarities so don't expect them to play rarities from any other album. It's gonna be the big hits + TJT.

Surprised at all the hate for MW. A tune as good as that, why not play it.. it's a crowd pleaser for a reason...

there are other tunes I would rather hear but can't blame them for keeping this as a regular number.

Streets, BD, Virtigo, pride, one, ebttrt, SBS,wowy just as 'over played'.
I tend to only hear these songs when i see them live, that being once every 4 years or so makes it ok.

That's a good point. I didn't think about that.

Completely agree with you. I think Beautiful Day and Vertigo will complicate their plans.

I like your list (although I think they'll cram Beautiful Day and Vertigo in somewhere) and think you're right that MLK is a contender to lead into Streets. I also think they could play Bad in that spot (like on the Elevation tour).
