Magnificent as opener without a doubt... the build up at the start can be made reeaalllll sweet.
NLOTH should be left till later in the set, such as first encore track (like Discotheque was.)

I think they might open with

1) No Line On The Horizon (this song has that City Of Blinding Lights feel to it)
2) Get On Your Boots
3) Vertigo

These would be my guess for the first three songs to open the show.

My my, we must be die-hard U2 fanatics. They haven't even made any official tour annoucement and we are already theorizing what the opening track might be. Fun times ahead. U2 rocks!!!

I'm rooting for Fez-Being Born.

Magnificent is good, but it doesn't feel like an opener to me.

Get on Your Boots, it will provide the energy to really fire up the crowd to start

Has to be Magnificent in my opinion.  Anyone have any better ideas?

I hope it's not No Line on the Horizon or Get On Your Boots... No Line is too slow for an opening song imo, and Boots... well, the songs growing on me still, but it just isn't awesome enough to open a U2 show.

I think Magnificent's a good bet

Has to be No Line

Its epic, anthemic and can be played dirty!

Plus, the intro can be drawn out with as much distortion and feedback as necessary.

This will allow Bono to emerge from an enormous lemon (provided the hydraulics work) and goose-step in front of a giant screen. Ooops, sorry - wrong tours.

Whatever they open with, I can't wait now. The countdown has begun!
