Who makes U2's setlists?
« on: September 18, 2010, 05:15:25 PM »
Does the whole band decide together which songs they will play, or does one person make the setlist?

Just curious.

If you read Willie William's diary on U2.com you'll find that he has a lot of input with the band, suggesting various setlist arrangements. Then they all get together and hash them out. So if you can get hold of Willie........ 8)

And who does not think some of those AWESOME songs from Pop would greatly increase the quality of the setlist.
