I'd like to see them take a risk like on Zoo and play 7 or 8 songs from it to begin the show

i'm ashamed, my wee brother downloaded the album, so i had to get it too. i'm still going to buy the album though. first impressions are that it is brilliant. really lovin magnificent, in fact i'm lovin it all. i'm even liking the "instant" songs such as stand up comedy and i'll go crazy. the rest are undoubtedly growers, which is a good sign. i can see them having a crack at them all live, but some such as fez and unknown caller may or may not work well live. the album gets a big thumbs up from me. it's as fresh as anything out there at the minute. i think it's going to attain a cult following in the way that zooropa and pop did amongst a section of u2 fans.

I have a feeling this is exactly what they will do.

Magnificent,Boots,Stand Up Comedy,Crazy Tonight,NLOTH,MOS,UC and Breathe could all be played live imo. Others i'm not sure about.

I think U2,when playing the new songs,will rotate some of them regularly.

this is a little off topic, but i didn't want to start a new tread for this but the itunes version of no line on the horizon features 2 bonus tracks(pre-order only, and Itunes exclusive) not named at the moment.  Does anyone have a clue at what these tracks might be?

i have a hunch about the format of the new tour. i think a backing track of fez-being born will introduce the band onstage, in the same mould as arcade fire's song did on the vertigo tour. i think unknown caller is a prime candidate for the closer of many shows, with those chants and edge's solo ringing in our ears as we walk out of the stadiums.

Listening to the stream on Myspace.  I would say like Vertigo Tour, at least 6 or 7 songs will be played

No Line On the Horizon
Magnificent
Get On Your Boots (probably the first song played)
I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight

Those 4 are probably definites.  The rest are a tossup.
