 I mean maybe in a few tours but I doubt the next. I played it safe and voted no

No. Can't see it happening. Certainly not vertigo and boots in the same set, and vertigo has broader appeal.

I hope it's never played ever again. Worst song ever.

I hope that they will. It's a killer live song.

I think it was Edge (correct me if I'm wrong) that said they didn't know what they had with Boots until they found out how to play it live.

I think they will at least a few more times. I doubt it will be a mainstay but I don't think it will never appear again.

And I want to mirror the comments on how much it rocked live. I've always liked but not loved the song, but live it was a highlight each concert I was at.

I'm certainly not having Boots back at the expense of Vertigo which I adore. Hope they don't try and alternate between them. I do however think COBL and Magnificent could be alternated very effectively.

Yes.  Say what you want about the song on record (I liked it, but it was in the bottom third of NLOTH for me) but it ROCKED live. I can't see U2 just forgetting about it, knowing how well it comes off in a live setting.

I'd honestly be more surprised if it didn't come back, at least for a bit. Numb is the only lead single not to have been played on a subsequent tour, I think.

And not only was it good live, but the band clearly *knew* it was good live (And said so repeatedly) and even stuck it in the Glasto set. I think it'll be back for sure, though probably not as a regular.

Then we can undoubtedly expect a new mix of it on the next best of
