I'm at the point where I almost don't care what songs I hear at U2 show, but I always leave with a bigger smile when I hear something off of Rattle And Hum and Zooropa.  They largely excluded these albums during PopMart as well.  I would love it if Desire, All I Want Is You, Angel of Harlem, Stay, The First Time and even Dirty Day made their way onto a few setlists.  These are songs that have performed many times so it wouldn't be  big surprise to see them resurface.

I think that U2 should play a show with every album represented.  Unlike Zooropa or R&H (which at least had a few acoustic efforts) there has been absolutely NOTHING from Pop.  It's as if they have excised the album from their discography.  Yes I'm aware U2 have 'snippeted' Discotheque.


as I've said before, I'd like to see the '80s U2 material cut down to 3 songs max per show. I think of Rush and how, by the late '80s, they'd only play "Closer To The Heart" from their '70s work. well, that and a medley of pieces of 3 or 4 other songs.
hmmm, there's a topic...

The only problem with that would be half of their catalog represented with just 3 songs.  The productive 80's saw the band put out 6 albums.  They released another 6 in the following 20 years.

No Way.  I don't want to see U2 going down the 'medley' path, it becomes almost as unsatisfying as speaking a few lyrics from a song and calling it a snippet. (Although I accept some fans go crazy at the recognition e.g Discotheque).
