First, I don't want to make this another setlist wishlist thread because people just end up listing down songs, followed by another list, with no one really reading the posts of the other.
Second, I use the term "dust off" so it should contemplate songs that haven't been played in a long time in any tour, or have never even been played before.
Third, I'd like to hear your reasons why these songs should be dusted off or played.
Here's my wishlist:
HEARTLAND - It's supposed to be in The Joshua Tree and is about America, so it fits the narrative of the tour. If they can't really play the whole song, maybe they can do it in snippet form like how they did Zooropa in the previous tour?
A SORT OF HOMECOMING - I don't know how this first, but U2 just haven't made it part of the rotation in a long time and the entire song and melody really gives an 80's U2 vibe. Maybe this can be what Ultraviolet was in the 360* Tour - a not-so-famous U2 song that was revived to the regular playlist.
I think it would be cool if they can sing lyrical snippets of some of their songs about U2 places .. like New York and Miami.
For a change also, why not open with a slow burn song? Virtually all the U2 tours have opened with fast songs to immediately get the crowd into it. I remember watching a Pearl Jam gig in Manila in `94 (or was it `95), and they opened with Release which started pitch dark and Vedder just singing in one corner as the song slowly started building. It was trippy in a different way. Perhaps U2 can play The Joshua Tree in complete reverse order? Or open with Heartland?
