Hard to beat "Walk On" during Elevation, especially the U.S. shows after September 11th.

BUT...

imagine a 3rd encore, people agitated b/c they haven't heard "Streets" yet, and then...a slow building organ and that riff building and building, and then liftoff into "Streets".

How amazing would that be? End the concert on a euphoric note.

I LOVE THIS IDEA - but what if you did BAD/40/STREETS?

Yes, this would be better...Bad/40/Streets, like the version from the Boston 2001 show.

One Tree Hill, nuff said (especially if they played it with the power of the 1989 Point Depot performance)

I can tell you what I DON'T want them to close with.  Moment Of Surrender by far was the worst closer the band had ever used.  The song should be in the middle of the set.  I found it to be a bit of a buzzkill.  First time I've ever seen the band where audience members acted like they had an 8 minute head start to the parking lot.

Bad and 40 on the VERTIGO were by far the two best closers I've experienced. 

Walk On from ELEVATION is a close second.

40 Was the closer for many of the tours U2 did. It's time for Love Is Blindness to return, but please... WITH THAT GUITAR SOLO!!!

That's a great song but I always find myself wanting to chew on antidepressants when I here it.  Very melancholy!

That is exactly the reason why! I love it Melancholy! I think it is important that people are sad when a U2 show is over, don't you think? :-D

Completely agree.  40 should close every show...every tour...period.

I just thought of this 2 seconds ago, but I think Beautiful Day could be a great closer.  Its a song that would install such an inspirational feeling in the concert-goer as they leave

40 is the best closer of all time...however, if they closed with full band version of The Wander or a b-side like Hallelujah Here She Comes or One Tree Hill that would be amazing.
