Will You Be Disappointed If.......
« on: November 17, 2014, 06:47:37 AM »
I would be curious to know how many NLOTH defenders & apologists will be upset if this scenario were to occur when the tour commences?

Overall, no, but I would like to hear a couple (Breathe and Moment of Surrender)

Nope. Any song from NLOTH would be a wasted spot on the setlist for me. I have no love for the album.

I like many of the songs on NLOTH, but not enough to be disappointed if they dropped some. I'd rather have rarer songs in their place.

I would love to hear Magnificent included in the SOI Tour setlist.

I love NLOTH but wouldn't be disappointed.  I saw 360 8 times so I got my fill.  But would prefer to hear NLOTH songs rather than the usual Pride, SBS, NYD, WOWY, etc, if they decide to continue to play these tired hits.  U2, you got a fresh sounding album, let's bring out a fresh new setlist to go with it.  It's time to take chances.

I would like them to play some NLOTH songs (Magnificent, NLOTH, MOS), but it wouldn't surprise or disappoint me if they don't.

People need to remember that U2 have a history of many of their tours neglecting the material of the previous record.

Zoo TV - only a couple of R&H songs, and on the film only Angel of Harlem
Popmart - nothing from Zooropa
Elevation - only a couple of Pop songs
Vertigo - fairly sure only Beautiful Day and Elevation were played with any regularity
360 - only Vertigo and COBL

So we shouldn't be expecting to get many NLOTH songs.

I would expect MoS somewhere in one of the set lists (rock or acoustic)

Yes, I will. I think NLOTH is a strong album, although a bit unbalanced. But its best songs deserve not to be forgotten... So I would like to hear 'Magnificent', the title track, 'Unknown Caller' or 'Fez-Being Born', for instance. Playing a couple of these surely wouldn't hurt their set...

I wouldn't be at all bothered if they dropped the 00's entirely from the sets.

In time, though, the songs from NLOTH will become rarities  ;)
