I've never been much of a fan of Sunday Bloody Sunday.  The acoustic intro softer version they used to do (e.g. Self Aid 1986) worked better for me.  Streets is one that gets the crowd going each and every time I've seen them so I just don't think it'd be right for them to ditch it for the sake of a few hardcore fans who'd rather hear, say, Drowning Man.

...are the ones I want to hear. As for shelving, as long as it's not all a hits parade, I can stomach most songs but Pride, Beautiful Day and Still haven't found sound awfully tired these days.

Exit.
I would go crazy if they played that live at a show I attended.
I would also love to hear God Part II or Dirty Day live and you can count me in the group who is still waiting to hear Acrobat.  8)

'To shelve' means 'to put aside' or 'dismiss', right? So why are some people mentioning here the songs they want to be played instead!?

If they are alternating set lists nightly, the song selection potential is incredible. Playing Pride, SBS, Beautiful Day, Vertigo every night is a bit much. But, playing them every two or three shows could make them special again.

I think playing Vertigo one night and then City of Blinding Lights the next would be great. But, both songs every night could be a bit of a drag for me. Since many people are going to multiple shows in each city, changing up the set would make it exciting for everyone.- including the band. Surely they have enough songs in their portfolio. The changing set lists nightly is very exciting!

They are going to play Beautiful Day and Vertigo every single show. Removing City of Blinding Lights would be like removing streets....they won't do that. You can pretty much count on hearing/seeing those 4 songs every single show. If they don't play any of those 4 I would be completely shocked.

If they got rid of these, the show will be infinitely better no matter what.  Bono could duet with Avril Lavigne on Get on Yer Boots and it would still be f'ing awesome.

These songs seem to be getting a little redundant...
1. Pride
2. Stuck in A Moment
3. Walk On
4. Bullet the Blue Sky
5. In A Little While
I always love hearing Streets, Bad, and WOWY, even when Bono's voice isn't as strong.
Just once I would like to hear One Tree Hill in it's entirety. Or A Sort of Homecoming.

I think they should make EVERY song droppable. In my view, sure, play ISHFWILF... just not *every* night. The only 'old' songs I'd consider they should play every night are "One" and "Beautiful Day". I wrote out a 6 night setlist and it's entirely possible to open every one of those nights with a different song. Songs they should drop? Honestly, kick "Bullet The Blue Sky" out, forever. Take "Stuck", "Walk On", "Boots", "Pride", "Sunday", "Follow", "ISHFWILF" and make them once-in-a-blue-moon songs.

Songs that should come back and be played more often : A Sort Of Homecoming, Bad, A Day Without Me, Gloria, October, Seconds, In Gods Country, Hawkmoon, God Part II, Lemon, Numb, Please.

ISHFWILF should become the new Bad. Rarely played but with impact when played.

Drop One, IWF, Elevation, Vertigo.

I could really do without ever hearing the following songs again;

I WILL FOLLOW- A THOUSAND TIMES THIS SONG!!!  I always get it at my shows!
Sunday bloody sunday
Pride
ISHFWILF
WOWY
Desire
Mysterious Ways
Beautiful Day
Elevation
Stuck in a moment
Vertigo

I'd even take Get on your boots in place of Vertigo / Elevation if I had the choice.
