Small venue with just hits or a stadium with just deep cuts

I would have to go with the smaller venue with just hits.  I prefer the more intimate setting.

Also depends on which hits. the Boy songs sure sounded great at the Apollo. I'd like to see a series of tours that focus on a single album with some other songs mixed in - like last year's J-Tree but do it also with Achtung and Unforgettable Fire.

I would just like some spontaneous songs.

Not only basically the same set every night, less Gloria and All Because of You, the stories Bono tells are the exact same.

Just dont understand how they cant change it up a little night to night.

I hear you - I miss the spontaneity - what happened to Party Girl?

But remember that probably 99% of the people only see one show, so the fanatics like us hear the same stories, etc.

Both!  Doesn't bother me either way.  It'll just be a good show whatever it is and wherever it is.

I voted for the deep cuts. I’ve already heard the hits, I would rather see U2 perform songs  they have NOT played in the last 20 years, regardless of the venue.

What do we mean by “small venue”? If you stick deep cuts in a stadium, you’re basically asking for crickets...

What I really want is to share a venue, large or small, with 100% die-hards.

Like The Apollo. But even if it were a stadium, if you fill it with hard-core fans, that's what I want.

End of the day, I want to hear the good U2 songs. Don't care where it is. Joshua Tree tour in Heinz Field was bliss, not because of the crowd (they really sucked), but because the music was incredible. They were playing their best material, from start to finish.

My thought exactly. I also share Laoghaire’s desire for a show with just die hards.

The "deep cuts" would work better on small venues. not the other way around.

Look, if they play 4th of July in a stadium, I'm there for sure!
