Promises of rare tracks that do not include the rarest of them all....

Acrobat FINALLY!
Red Hill Mining Town
Tomorrow

I don't want to hear Out of Control and be sold that it is a rare track...

I'd love to hear Red Hill Mining Town and Tomorrow. Acrobat, too :)

an extended acoustic set.  I really don't want them to play any but I know they usually play at least one and can live with them playing one acoustic song and it better not be more. I wasn't planned on making the trip to vancouver from toronto and paying the 300 dollar ticket for an acoustic night with U2 which wasn't advertised beforehand.

Hearing songs like pride, SBS, NYD, ISHF, WOWY (just to name of few) being played in the same night for the millionth time when they got hundreds of other songs to play that havn't been played for some time.  I hope they will be brave and take chances in coming up with the setlist and not play it safe.

Stale setlist and playing too much songs from SOI

Not playing enough album cuts/rarities across at residency stretch.  8 shows in NYC should translate to a large variety of songs.  Rotating SOI tracks, 3 every-show hits (One, Streets, BD) and the rest of the setlist should be non-standard stuff.

Snippets, snippets and more snippets. Too many warhorses after promising surprises. No red screen before Streets.

Bad makeover advice / Fashion errors... Leather clad bono. Headset microphone edge. Flamboyant shirt Clayton, 80's throw back Mullen etcetera.

grand gestures that come across too cheesy and contrived

Go overboard with the busker versions... like theyčve done with Desire after Zoo TV... I will FREAK OUT if I drive all the way to Boston from Ottawa Canada only to hear Every Breaking Wave acoustically... seriously... that would simply suck... I cannot overemphasize that enough.

why would someone want to spend energy being 'ticked off' by U2 when they can spend energy enjoying the entire experience? (if in fact, they are fans) what could U2 do to tick me off? absolutely nothing.
What a great attitude! My kids' kindergarten teacher used to tell them, like when someone was handing out treats, you get what you get and you don't throw a fitty fit. So that's what I'll try to do.
