Beautiful Day
Elevation
Walk On
Vertigo
City of Blinding Lights

All seem to be live mainstays, but with a new album, which is likely to get a lot of played live, along with the many other classics and possible deep cuts that they might want to pull out, it would seem logical that several of those five mainstays will bite the bullet, no?  Beautiful Day and Vertigo are probably too massively known to get cut, and I can't see City of Blinding Lights not getting played already.  I could see both Walk On and Elevation missing the cut this time, or maybe getting rotated or the occasional play.

Thoughts?

I can see a lot of ATYCLB mainstays getting left behind...it's my least favorite album so I guess I wouldn't mind so much.

I can't see them skipping City of Blinding Lights...it's such a great tune for live performance.

Beautiful Day is as important to the band as One and Streets, so its not going anywhere.

Beautiful Day and Vertigo I'm certain will most likely be in the main setlists. Not sure about City of Blinding Lights but it would follow Invisible nicely as the second song after the opener. It's time for Elevation, Walk On, Until the End of the World, Even Better Than The Real Thing, Mysterious Ways, ect. to take a break.

Beautiful Day, Elevation and Vertigo will all stay, I think. 

All 3 songs really get the crowd moving. Some staples may get bigger cheer, sometimes.  However, these 3 along with Streets always get the crowd physically into it.

It wouldn't bother me if they didn't play anything from before 2000

I'm good with a nice mix with at least 5 from SOI era and a bit heavy on AB too

I think we'll get a tour not as heavy on Behind as 360 was, since you know, there were nights where 5 songs from that album were played.
