How would you feel if U2 played No JT songs on the SOE tour & other rarities instead?

Hallelujah! It's about damn time!  Hooray!
Ok, but I don't want to hear some songs like The Playboy Mansion
Ok, but every U2 show has to have Streets (and maybe a few other JT songs)
No!!! Most of the audience will want the hits and will barely tolerate new SOE songs. Forget about the rarities.
No. I want different rare songs played and/or they shouldn't ignore The Joshua Tree.

What happened to the pairs of shows idea that they originally came up with for the I&E tour?  That would be a great opportunity to get deep into the catalogue.

They could play a night of SOE + hits (for the casuals) in an arena, followed by a night of SOE + rarities (for the hardcores) in a small venue.

Alternatively, they could just play different combinations of SOE, hits and rarities on both nights.

yeah, i have the track but admittedly haven't listened to it since i was in high school in the late 90's. might go listen to it again now, but i don't recall it being a standout other than knowing it was the early stages of a few AB tracks.  i guess it would be noteworthy to see it performed but i'm not exactly dying to see it.

Maybe they could snippet LWTSH? It seems very snippet-friendly!

SOE sounds like they can do some dance tunes at the beginning of the live set, they surprised with all the old stuff in 2015. Maybe not this song, but certainly Discotheque.

Yeah, it's probably time for Discotheque and Please.

What is up with everyone putting a dogmatic fence around TJT singles? I understand it if you're taking an objective, pragmatic approach to their set list philosophy, but coming from the fan side, why? I'm sure most of us have been to numerous concerts. Streets vs. unplayed/dusty rarities and you choose Streets precisely because it's a sacred cow? Do we really like those overplayed songs that much more that we're basically insulting the quality of the rest of their catalogue? Imagine if the first 3 songs of every new U2 album was required to be 1. Streets 2. Pride 3. WOWY. Hurray, right? /rant over

They are three all time classics by any bands standards. Rant over.
