Don't forget the tour is in the summer months (USA)  so it won't get dark till later in the show. I'm not sure if that will play into the thinking of the opening song. I can't wait to hear whatever the lads choose.

Good point there about the sun in summertime.  The tickets say start at 7:00PM.  This means that the earliest U2 will on is 8:00 PM, but not likely.  They most likely will be on sometime after 8:30 more likely 9ish.  In LA/Anaheim it will be dark by this time.

I wouldn't be surprised if the opening song is NOT from NLOTH --- maybe even an older song.

With the long lay-off, this leg is pretty far removed from NLOTH's launch, making it less important to promote it.

Boom Cha!

Maybe they'll actually play Kingdom live to open.

thats an interesting point. too bad they couldnt have timed it so the show starts around sunset...id kill to have them do streets as an opener just as the sun's going down...red lights and all!!

I found this amazingly good cover of Fez Being Born by a Chilean band. This is a pretty example that Fez can and should be played live by U2 this time around!!

Ugh, I hope it's not Boots. It's my least favorite song off NLOTH. IGCIIDGCT would be cool, as would Maginficent.

Perhaps by "New Opener" he meant "Anaheim"
