What 5 songs will the play on Letterman
« on: February 22, 2009, 05:57:47 PM »
I say:

Boots
Magnificent
Breathe
Moment of Surrender
I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight

Your guesses? This assuming they only play one song per night. Hopefully we are in for more.

Definately Boots.... If they play new songs from the album they'll probably play Boots, Magnificent, Crazy, Unknown Caller, and Breathe.

If it's all new songs:

1) Get On Your Boots
2) I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
3) Magnificent
4) Moment of Surrender
5) Stand Up Comedy

Boom Cha!

I don't think they'll all be new songs.

1. Get On Your Boots
2. Vertigo
3. I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
4. Beautiful Day
5. Stand Up Comedy

Last time they played Letterman they played 2 songs, but that was only 1 night.  They also did more than the standard number of songs when they were on SNL.  I am going to go way out on a limb here and guess that they will do 2 songs every night - 1 old and 1 new.  My guess:

Mon - Boots and Vertigo
Tues - No Line on The Horizon and One
Wed - IGCIIDGCT and Beautiful Day
Thurs - Moment of Surrender and WOWY
Fri (taped Thurs) - Magnificent and Streets

will they keep U2 contained in studio?

I think an outside preformance would be more in line.

If they do, i might have a chance to go.  Im 17 and you have to be 18 for tickets.  I will be 2 months away from my 18th that week...damn

A bit cold for an outside performance, the Lincoln Memorial not withstanding.  Typically on Letterman/Leno/Conan/SNL they have done stuff in the studio, with Bono sometimes venturing into the audience.  That would be amazing, but I wouldn't count on it. :'(

2 new songs every night, and leave Boots out. That's exactly the 10 songs.
Perfect list for most of us isn't it? ;D

That would do it! (but we know that will never happen)

I am hopeful on the 2 songs deal, but I would still be happy to hear 5 songs - 1 per night.

I am so excited.

According to NME, they rehearsed/filmed/played No Line On The Horizon for the BBC2's "Culture Show" so that's probably gonna make an appearance.

They'll probably play Breathe too because they played it somewher in France. They probably wont play all new songs, but since it is the week the album  comes out theres sure to be some.
