Bad
« on: June 01, 2018, 06:17:44 PM »
Why canít U2 play Bad on this tour? I know it might not fit with the narrative of the show etc etc but why???? Itís such a massive live song and gets the crowd going. Theyíve played Bad at every show Iíve been to and I canít imagine them not playing it in London (sob). I get them not playing Joshua Tree songs this time but surely surely we need Bad in the set list.

Thatís very true but they played Pride all last year too and thatís still going strong this time. Canít imagine how hard it must be to work out the set list though 😊

I think the band is sometimes conscious of "over-playing" a song.  This is why the don't always play "40", I think.  A song can lose its emotional resonance if it's played constantly--both for the band and for us.

That's why.

<pats shoulder> It's ok, you'll survive. Just keep an open mind to receive what they have in store. Do you trust them?

Hi, my name is Spoiled,

Latest tour I had ASOH. Now I want Bad.

That was my first U2 show.

Kind regards,

Not So Spoiled

You've got to stand up straight, carry your own weight. These tears are going nowhere, baby.

You've got to get yourself together, you got stuck on this one song, but you can get out of it. Don't say that Bad would be better, you got stuck on this one song, but you'll get over it WHEN YOU SEE WHAT THEY'VE GOT IN STORE FOR YOU.

Wise words.
    We cannot reach any higher
    If we canít deal with substantially different set lists.

Sometimes I feel like I don't know
Sometimes I feel like checkin out
I want to get it wrong
Cant always be strong
And love it won't be long

Bad, one of the best live songs ever, would make this tour better, based on the two shows I saw, in my opinion
