What song should open U2's last show ever?
« on: February 01, 2012, 01:20:33 PM »
There's been many topics on the "last song"... What about the "Last first song"?

I'd like to see "I Will Follow" start the show. The whole stage being black, and then suddenly the guitar screams, and it all goes mad. Then they'd go into "Even Better Than The Real Thing", and then rock.

I like Out of Control for the opener or closer as well as Magnificent which sums up their entire career.

Streets too.

Whatever the usual opener is on that particular tour.

So, New Song.

If it's a standalone show, I'm going to have to go against what a lot of people have been saying on here and say Streets. Get people excited as they start their last show. Prepare the crowd to cheer and move more than they've ever done before.

If it's a tour - new song
One off goodbye show - Streets is simply an unbeatable contender.

At the risk of sounding crass, that's like opening sex with an orgasm. I think it's a bad idea.
