The 360 Encores
« on: August 09, 2010, 09:25:38 AM »
I am somewhat unimpressed with the encore section of this tour, both in song selection and number of songs.  It did include Ultraviolet which I think was definitely the highlight of the encore but now it seems that U2 have dropped that for Hold Me, Thrill Me.

What are your thoughts?

No way.

Ultraviolet/Hold Me are both amazing songs that rarely ever get played, WOWY is still amazing and MOS blows me away every time. If anything I think it's one of their best encores ever. ;D

I loved the Elevation tour but Walk On was a bit of a sub standard last tune (it's a great song but not a good encore before anyone calls me negative). Wake Up Dead Man was good on POP.

MOS is a bit underwhelming - better to have that as a first encore and end of something else...

 Ultraviolet  and MOS are both excellent encores! I cannot comment on Hold me since I have not seen it yet.

Wow. Not even close. I'd actually go so far as to say that with UV, it may have been the best.

How can an encore with Ultraviolet ever be bad?

Since the pre Joshua Tree tour era I think it's the worst encore section they've done.

Zooropa was the best IMHO.

Well, on the Zooropa tour we had Ultraviolet and Desire, WOWY and Love Is Blindness for the closer.  Oh and MacPhisto.

No, I do not think it is even close to being the worst  ;D

I think ZooTV / Zooropa's encore was easily one of the worst. PopMart's may have been the best

It was the 90's, maybe you had to be there. ;)

Or maybe some people just don't share your opinion.  :)
