PETITION: PLEASE DON'T PLAY 'MOMENT OF SURRENDER' AT GLASTO
« on: February 17, 2010, 11:06:33 PM »
(a) it was boring and indulgent at Wembley
(b) it's bland and depressing on the record
(c) the critics will have their vampire fangs out at Glasto - and this will give them easy blood!

Well it's a very good song
but they'd be out of their MINDS if they played it at glastonbury!! I doubt they will. .......... *facepalm* now you have me worried! I sure hope they play stuff from Pop...

I reckon this is a wasted petition. ... make one for playing acrobat instead!

The only other  songs i can see ending glastonbury are one, 40  or walk on. Certainly won't be something like acrobat which hardly anyone in the audience except u2 fans, and don't forget tickets were sold before they were announced, will recognise. Even 40 is stretching it a bit for a non-u2 audience. I think by the time we get to moment of surrender everyone will have been so blown away by what has gone before that it won't matter.  Myself, I'd love an 11 o'clock tick tock/40 finish but i know it's not gonna happen which is why it's not on my set list in the other thread.

I'll sign, and I'm not even going to Glasto. MOS has never been nor ever will be a good show closer, in my opinion. It's too depressing and heavy. 40 works much better: even though they're similar-sounding song, 40 is more uplifting.

I prefer 40 as a closer, but won't sign this petition as Moment Of Surrender is seriously one of the best songs on No Line on the Horizon.

I think they will do their own thing so could be a closer! I do think it quietened the crowd so hope they go with something more uplifting...

If I had a choice it would have to be 40 of course...

I'm sure they won't play MOS, they will most likely play a greatest hits set I bet.

I agree as well! It is an amazing song and they shouldn't be scared off by a festival crowd !! They should be proud of this great song and have some courage to do it!  ;)

Wrong on all three points imo! One of the best songs in the concert and on the album (along with NLOTH and Unknown Caller). The Glasto crowd will be well wooed by that stage, the fangs will only be used for sloppy lovebites.

I'm hoping what they do play rather than hoping what they don't play.

Not play it at all?  Or don't close the show with it?
