Agreed. Miss Sarajevo full band does not work.

This setlist needs MAJOR help. No flow. Hope they fix it.

I wish they'd take this song out.

It baffles me how poorly U2 constructs an encore.
They clunkily force in Elevation, which doesn't fit at all -- thematically or tonally.
Then they butcher Ultraviolet. Sing a long One. Snore fest Miss Sarajevo. Then new song no one's ever heard.
Totally illogical.

Totally right. I'll rework the setlist tonight and post. But it needs a major overhaul from the start.

Again...yes. I understand from the visuals they are speaking to the refugee crisis. How about their own song called...refugee?!

Nothing wrong with the start of the setlist. It's the encore.

Perhaps MS would work better after MOTD?  It's a drab of an encore opener though...it is a problem song.  It's appropriate for the context of the show, but it doesn't easily fit anywhere.

I would assume they are going for a different feel for the segment since MS is slow and Refugee is faster.  There are other songs of course.  October was beautiful on I&E.

Also...I know I've said this every night but the beginning piano chords of this new song sound like the "near, far, wherever you are"  part of the titanic theme song. I can't unhear it.
