Zoo TV First leg intro "I could have lost you" for sure. So simple but powerful. The Fly's first outing in the world of Zoo TV.

As for the 360 tour...I'd say Breathe is pretty much perfect. However, I always imagined NLOTH (the song) to be better. I know Bono plays guitar on it but it could work...

I have always thought Fez :Being Born would be a perfect intro. Its sort of other-wordly and then focuses into a fast paced song to get the crowd going a bit.

I think this would definitely be the ideal opener but U2 aren't that adventurous.

I kind of imagine them doing like the Elevation tour where they started with the house lights on, and then when Being Born starts, they turn off the house lights! I thought that was so cool when they did that for Elevation

"Fez" as a tape then "Magnificent". The one show they played "Mag" as opener, Bono's voice was slightly off, but aside from that, they should try again.

Before the tour expected, my dad and I had a standing bet on what the intro would be- I thought Magnificent, he thought NLOTH. Obviously, we were both wrong!  :D I LOVE the Breathe intro- especially just those first guitar chords! But at the same time, hey, the 'Magnificent' one worked very well from what little we saw of it.

I'd love to see them try 'NLOTH' though. Just because that fast, pounding guitar livened up the shows I was at anyway so seeing it at the start could really, really work.

That should have been the fan club member release in place of Artificial Horizon.

Nothing and I repeat nothing will ever beat the proper Organ intro and then "Streets".  NOTHING I TELLS YA!

The outside broadcast for Zoo TV, with Bush into "Zoo Station" is a close 2nd.

Great openers regardless.

Play something familiar like The Beatles or Bowies space oddity whatever... Let the lights turn out. Audience goes mental. In the dark the band comes up so you can't see them until they're on stage. Then a spotlight on Adam who starts Looping the famous bass-line of GOD PART II. When the full band comes in, all lights go on and half the audience has fainted...

Pop Muzik - Mofo entrance was hot!

I'd like to see FEZ - > MOFO or Discotheque - > Boots or Numb (with the Edge on stage by himself) - > The Fly

I saw a thread earlier about best closer and I suggested The Wanderer, but agree with one dude that Beautiful Day would be a great closer and would leave folks with an uplifted spirit. But, you can't beat 40.

Yea, I thought it would be a great closer (as well as an opener) but I know it will never happen
