Around the time of Passengers I began fantasizing about a "psychedelic ambient" sit-down U2 show played in old beautiful theatres like The Paramount here in Seattle (for those who haven't been there, go online and look at some pictures of its interior).  I pictured the band beautifully playing no "hits" at all, but a mixture of their trippier and more experimental, instrumental, and ambient (slow?) songs in front of a very psychedelic and constantly-changing image screen...with Brian Eno along for the ride.  The fantasy set list went something like this, with new additions of more recent work I thought would fit nicely (I'll leave it to others to decide on a song order):

Zooropa       
United Colors         
Always Forever Now       
Slug         
Your Blue Room       
A Different Kind Of Blue
Beach Sequence       
Miss Sarajevo     
One Minute Morning   
Theme From Let's Go Native     
Love Is Blindness
Grace     
The Ocean     
Hallelujah (Here She Comes)     
Discotheque (Howie B Hairy Version)
Alex Descends Into Hell (For A Bottle Of Milk)       
Exit       
Race Against Time     
The Ground Beneath Her Feet
Stateless       
Cedars Of Lebanon       
Scarlet     
If You Wear That Velvet Dress     
Heartland   
Smile     
Tomorrow
Promenade   
Love Comes Tumbling     
Bass Trap       
4th Of July       
Drowning Man

wow thats a nice setlist. Exit would sure wake the audience up after all the songs preceding it. Take Smile out and i'm on board

I don't like this topic. U2 are over? What's this B.S.? Are you all fool? U2 will never be over. They have a lot of things to teach to young bands and they will always rule!! Never say "U2 are over"!!!!!!!!
