Breathe as an encore?
« on: June 26, 2010, 03:14:51 PM »
Okay, so it looks like Breathe is gone as an opener. The way this song is structured, I can't really imagine this song anywhere on a setlist besides the beginning. However, thinking about it as the beginning of an encore is an interesting thought. You don't even need a lead in to it; just have Larry sneak up to his drums in the dark and abruptly start his drum solo when everyone least expects it; that'd be really funny to see everyone jump at the sound :P

"Breathe" would be better in the main set after the acoustic interlude.

I think it'd fit well after the Crazy remix.

I think that Breathe and Moment of Surrender are both awkward songs to place in a set-list and U2 got it just about right.  If U2 drop Breathe as the opener, which is far from certain that they will, I can't realistically see it staying in the set at all.  Much better to drop Breathe and open the encore with Fez-Being Born for the next leg.
