Does Adam mean that they're going to play One, UTEOTW, Mysterious Ways, EBTTRT, Ultraviolet, an acoustic Stay, and an acoustic SBS?

Cool. Super. Fab. Groovy. Far out, Man.






Hey, hey, hey!

...Also Zooropa! :P

In all seriousness, I'm waiting for someone to complain again  about how just playing hits isn't enough at Glastonbury even though that is exactly what Glastonbury requires as demonstrated by the set of every other artist top play at GLastonbury ever.

Playing the greatest hits is certainly the way to go, but imo the band should play at least one rare/experimental song (Zooropa, mofo etc) - i think it would be beneficial for them to remind casual listeners that they have quite a diverse history, and weren't always reliant on the 'chimes'.
I know way too many people that define (or hate) u2 through the echo-ish songs like WoWY, BD etc. playing something unusual like Mofo would shut them up!

The tragic thing?

It really wouldn't. They'd just bash Mofo and then re-iterate the same complaints for everything else.

The BBC had some live streaming on their site last year, but only selected acts and not full sets (at least I think not).

Not sure about the arrangements for this year.

I know Bruce got taped, Im not sure if it was the whole set, but I know there were like 20 videos up, so they probably will tape U2

Boom Cha!

I think you're being a tad cynical.
