Bring back Sweetest Thing
« on: June 10, 2017, 03:44:20 AM »
Yes they did it sometimes on the last tour but I feel it applies better to this tour. I'm not keen on what I've been hearing about the encore and whilst I understand a new song links to the future, I think the modern hits don't really work. Sweetest Thing would tie it all together, reaching back to TJT and giving us the lightness the band are looking for after the main set.

I think it would get great reaction, from Europe particularly.

Id happily see ST replace either Miss Sarejevo, Elevation or Beautiful Day, in the set list.

Bono actually liked the idea of playing Sweetest Thing on JT2017.

Read this lucky fan's encounter with Bono at a brunch restaurant, morning after Vancouver opener! Bono asked her opinions of the show.

Sweetest Thing is easy for the band to play, light and fun and popular, Bono gets to bang on the piano.

But to me, Sweetest Thing is a wasted slot, like Elevation and Sarajevo.

The band will never nix Beautiful Day, and I do love the screen display of their 4 faces mouthing that part ("see the tuna fleets clearing the sea out").

1998 called and wanted to remind us that U2 already brought back the Sweetest Thing.

Can't believe that they aren't playing some of the throwaways on this tour including Sweetest Thing or Spanish Eyes or any of the other TJT-wannabe's from RH.   If you want a concept tour, why not fill it with concept.

there's still a lot of time left, they could fit SW into the 2nd set. i would rather have seen WLCTT or AOH honestly.
