87 vs 17 Non- JT Songs Played
« on: July 12, 2017, 07:05:51 AM »
Which non-JT U2 songs that have been played on the two torus do you think are a stronger set of songs.  Clearly in 87 you will get older tunes, though not old at the time.  I also eliminated duplicate non-JT songs from the comparison.

A stronger set? I think the sets are equal.
Stronger songs:
'87 : Gloria, Electric Co, Out of Control
'17:  Ultraviolet, Vertigo, Mysterious Ways

I voted for the '87 set. Elevation, Vertigo, and Beautiful Day were enough to do it for me.

As I recall it 11 o'clock tick tock got played just once on the whole tour.  The Unforgettable Fire got played most nights.

You can sneak WOWY into the non JT 2017 set as much as you want and it still won't get my vote  :)

This looks like a rarity setlist vs a greatest hits thing

The 2017 songs are stronger, but I'd love to hear the 1987 ones just because U2 plays mostly the same songs (the greatest hits) every tour.  If they mixed it up more (which they have said they will not), I'd appreciate all their music more.

Opps, you were the only one to catch that?  Fixed the list.
