No Line On The Horizon on Future Tours

Which songs from NLOTH do you think will appear in future U2 tours?

Personally, I think the band still quite like the album a lot and keep indicating this in their ways, but have rightly realised that it lacked commercial appeal and will suit an arena setting better. I honestly think we'll hear Boots, Magnificent and a Studio version of Crazy as semi-regulars, with Moment, Breathe, NLOTH, Stand-Up And White As Snow all making appearances. I think Unknown Caller, sadly, is probably dead forever.

Optimistic? Maybe. But let's vote!

I actually see almost all of them being played, exceptions being Fez/Being Born and Cedars.

No Line On The Horizon, Magnificent, Crazy Tonight, and MoS.

Possibly an unexpected performance of a hitherto unplayed track, a la The First Time years later on Vertigo Tour.

An 'acoustic' No Line on the Horizon.  That's all.

If it's another greatest hits tour then they won't be playing anything except maybe an acoustic number.

And if it's an arena tour where they're concentrating on playing their new experimental music from a new album, then there won't be any space for anything from NLOTH.

I'm surprised so many people don't see Boots being played. It and Magnificent are the two I personally view as *most* likely!  :D

If they didn't play it on the *next* tour, let alone on any future tour, it would be the second ever lead single to meet that fate after Numb.

...There is a reason it is the only lead single never to be played again. :P

Even Fire didn't manage to sink that low.

But I like Numb, especially the Emergency Broadcast Network Remix of it I found recently  ;D

I thought Numb was spectacular on ZooTV, with the factory/soldiers/tribesman footage and sound effects in the background.

The Emergency Broadcast Network mix is like a studio version of ZOOTV. It's awesome.
