I know another great live band who had last tour a lot of complaints by fans about the setlist. According to fans the setlist was too predictable and no favorites were played. Also the type of songs were all the same.

This is just about any band's message board out there.

Overall, just a few minor complaints.
1-Set seems a bit short, could be at least 24 songs as I&E tour opener.
2-SBS as opener?  Wait and see how it works out.
3-RHMT piano version-not digging it, seems to be a yawner, what a shame.
4-Miss Sarajevo not a good closer (or even 2nd last second depending if they play new song
   to close).  This song is not well known among the majority of U2 audience.  It will just be
    a mass exodus towards the exits as noticed on vertigo and 360 tours.

The set list they have been practicing WON'T be the exact set list tonight. They are going to have 2-3 more songs and different openers/closers. They have been rehearsing more songs with the sound system turned off etc. We also don't know for sure exactly how RHMT will sound. Can't really pass judgement from terrible audio recordings taken outside a stadium.

Agree! I'm very curious!

I thought this morning: tonight the tour begins. But due to the time zone difference it will be tomorrow morning.

Also, I think Miss Sarajevo could be a good closer. Even if it's not a well known song (I think I new it when I was a child and not a fan). But it fits very well in their political statements.

O, yes! I'm really hoping he will. Even if he fails most of the nights it will be great. It makes the song so more emotional.

It's the only reason I want to hear Miss Sarajevo on this tour, it's a real test to see where his voice is these days. But somehow something is telling me he's going to bottle it and go with the Pavarotti on video for the opera part

But it is a well known song. A major hit single in Europe and Australia, on a greatest hits compilation and everything.

Hmm, and otherwise quite simple. After the first verse they know the song  ;)

Probably. But keep up the hope

1. They are infamous for the quick set. I'm think No there's a few surprises in store. It's so hard, in 2017, to surprise your fans.
2. SBS as an opener...I'm clueless on this one. Odd call.
3. RHMT. I understand the EBW treatment but man am I annoyed.
4. Miss Sarajevo as a closer.....Feels a bit like "Love is Blindness" on Zoo Tv. You leave wanting to take antidepressants.
5. I'm psyched nonetheless. To have these guys still touring and making new music is awesome.

Miss Sarajevo as a closer? No problem. It's not been played in the UK or Ireland at all, despite first being played 20 years ago. Bring it on!

I like that they don't feel boxed in by pitching a new album by front loading the first half of the show with five new songs.

Yeah, I have no issues with Miss Sarajevo being a closing song.  I think the song is great and hopefully Bono sings the Italian part as it is very powerful part of the song.

Any recording I've ever heard has him going full Italian. Great part....That one L'amore note is killer!
