I always thought playing Zooropa as an opener would've been a good idea, with each member walking through the crowd to the stage from each of the 4 corners of the stadium, before meeting on the stage. Larry would have to wear a very slim hihat and snare kit alone like "Crazy" though, before getting into his standard kit for 'part2' of the song.

MOS would have flopped. Even as a closer to the majority of the crowd it didn't work.

I was OK with it, but not a good end to see half the crowd heading for their cars after the first verse.

Interestingly, in my concert experiences that happened a lot both nights I saw them in Dublin and not at all on the European continent. I wonder why.

I found the best thing for the 360 Tour was to get out of the stands and into the inner ring. Then you can just ignore the casual fans outside who don't appreciate the good stuff.
