A new U2 tour is about as exciting as a new Stones tour.  You know what you're going to get and you know that the band is going to make another fortune from it.

                Playing old rare songs is nice, but I think the most exciting thing for long time fans of U2 is the new music and hearing that new music live. What U2 do far better than the Stones or Springsteen is produce new exciting fantastic music and play it great live.

I just don't see this ever happening.  They are just not good enough to pull it off.  They have difficulty enough playing the usual same old same old songs they play tour after tour.  I just can't see them play Wire and A Sort of Homecoming one night and Surrender, Seconds the next and maybe Trip Through your wires, God Part 2, Hawkmoon etc during other shows.  Maybe they should bring back Fantasy Island, then maybe our dreams could come true with variety of setlists.  Not going to happen.  We will get the same protocol as the last several tours- New songs, the usual staples, 2 rarities.

Ever hear of the Lovetown Tour back in 1989-1990

Yes they shuffled around the running order of a limited number of songs on that tour.

It's hardly pearl jam or Springsteen. In fact there was less variation of set lists than on 360 for example.

38 different songs played.

360 had 61.

I agree with edge 245. Hearing new music live is what makes U2 exciting. I love Springsteen but U2 put on a very different type of show that is choreographed uses technology to relay part of the message. Springsteen is just music with little add ons to the experience.

For the record, Bono only did a snippet of 40 in Piitsburgh. They didn't play it.

Wow, that was 2 years ago today!

Anyways, if they become "eternal tourers", they will have a new tour each time they go out on the road, like the Stones.

Great read, i find it odd in the list of old-"rage" rockers <as they call them> the list excludes Aerosmith, which is surely on par with the Stones/Dylan/McCartney.
