It'll probably trade off with another rocker.
 
I would say Vertigo, but they will play Vertigo forever because of how popular it was.

As long as they don't lose that lovely chiming riff on the prechoruses. I love that.

Doing a live version of I'll Go Crazy in the style of the album version would be preferable.

No, that's what U2 have an acoustic section for.

When was the last time they did a full band version of desire? Surely that can still be a great live moment, I think it's been neglected too long.

IIRC they did do it once or twice on 360 (At least once in Australia? If memory serves? It may have begun acoustic and turned electric...) but yes, it is criminal that they don't play Desire properly much anymore.

Yep they played it raw and dirty in 06 at a few aussie shows. On the Explorer no less...

I'm not a fan of the song, so I hope that they don't sacrifice a spot on the setlist for it.

The "Let me in the sound" part would be a great snippet in the middle or at the end of another song....

If there was anything consistent about 360 it was that they wanted to rock the stadium as much as possible. Get on Your Boots fit well into that genre.  But if they want to do something more ambient and experimental like most of No Line actually was then there are many songs that would not resurface including Vertigo, The Fly, Even Better than the real thing, etc.
