Would you like to see the return of The Fly and/or Bullet for the remainder of the 360 tour?

If so, where in the set would you like to see them slotted?

I voted for The Fly, but I would be totally fine with neither song in the setlist.

And I would make it the first song of the encore, replacing HMTMKMKM.  Its really the only spot The Fly fits thematically

The Fly or neither.
Both are great live songs. but it's a competitive set and these are just another couple of warhorses that were deliberately edged out.
I think The Fly could be amazing with the 360 set up, and it's, well, the fly, so it'll be a great choice. but not worth dropping anything current for either really.

that SAID i wouldn't mind seeing the fly rotated in every now and then one bit.

The Fly would work really well with the laser suit or with the screen extended, with all of the subliminal messages and whatnot. Bullet the Blue Sky is kinda tricky to fit in with the way the setlist is. The only place I can think of is in place of Sunday Bloody Sunday, after Crazy Tonight, since that slot seems to be where things get political  ;D And I'd only accept its return if Edge brings back his blistering solo from Zoo TV/Elevation and not do the slower, not nearly as exciting Vertigo solo.

I've always felt a 360 set-list was lacking something with the omission of these two songs- warhorses or not, and they would definitely give a big boost to the show for long term fans and casuals alike.

I think it's time to do away with the whole Walk On bit and close the main set with The Fly.  

They should play Bullet as the first song after the Crazy remix, drop SBS and add Please after Bullet.  

What a home straight that would be:- Crazy - Bullet - Please - Scarlet - The Fly.  8)

I'd love to see them rotate the Fly in the slot UV has, but I really dislike Bullet. As long as I get UV at least twice this summer I'll be happy. ;D

Gosh, I feel like I'm putting coins in a jukebox. Just play what you want, boys!

I voted for The Fly but only if its that slow version that they did on the Elevation Tour.... I am good with Bullet staying out of the tour... It's been done on every previous tour that I have on bootleg and it needs some retirement. However, I wouldnt mind a different political song... like Silver & Gold. Maybe after SBS. I do not want SBS removed.... They can do that one forever, I always love it.

I like The Fly a lot, but I think it's been done. I have the ZooTV and Elevation DVD performances I can watch whenever I want. My desire to hear it live is sated by those.

Bullet has never been a song I like. I far prefer its "sequel", Love & Peace Or Else.

The Fly, its brilliant and would fit right in.

Bullet has not been good live since Zoo TV (where by the way it was spectacular). Ever since its been terrible.

I don't really think the fly sounds that good live



Bullet on the other hand would ROCK


but then the GHT people would start B&M again.

I've never seen either live, so I'd be jazzed to hear both.
