Wow, all of your suggestions and set lists look amazing.  I'd love to be at any one of those shows.

Come to think of it, if U2 played all of those set lists on different nights, we'd be in heaven - I'd be shocked - but we'd be in heaven.

In heaven, and quite empty in our wallets!

You know, it reminds of some of the talk about static setlists for TJT tour, and the talk when Bruce played The River. If before a tour started someone had told us that every night we would get the rarities RHMT, Trip, God's Country, Exit, MOTD and then favorites like OTH and RTST, we would have been over the moon with excitement. The fact that these songs were expected and played every night does nothing to change the fact to me that U2 played a show where 1/3 of the set was comprised of 30-year-old album cuts.

For years, Bruce never played The Price You Pay, and fans were just begging for it. Does the fact that it came out every night on The River Tour somehow diminish its standing? I don't get that line of thought. All I care about MY show. What happens the next night in another city has no bearing on what I got.
