Not my picks, but Acrobat will surely be the #1. For #2 I'm guessing Red Hill Mining Town. Again, for the fact that it has never been played live.

I'm surprised people don't think there will be more love for Mofo.

I picked Acrobat & Gone.

But that was hard, I wanted to pick half of them! Yep, would love Mofo (or Do Youu Feel Love, or Please, more Pop love please). Red Hill Mining Town would be up there, if Bono didn't murder it (as would A Sort of Homecoming, if Bono also didn't murder that). Drowning Man, with orchestra (more older stuff, Boy & War please). Although I love Kite, I didn't pick it as, compared to some songs, it hasn't been missing that long. Saw it last as the Vertigo closer in Sydney, awesome with the didgeridoo. Oh, God Part II, yes please.

The reason U2 never played Red Hill was because it was too high for bono to sing properly.

Acrobat and Mofo is what everyone is going to ask for.

If Iris is played, I guarantee Mofo will be involved in the show somehow, either as a snippet in Iris' bridge or as its own performance.

Brian Eno said in an interview that Bono can sing a high A note, and that's pretty unique.
He can sing it. Maybe because of his age he will not do the same version as on JT.

My advice is to save your tweets on Stay and OTH. They will play those ones for sure, at least once during the tour. OTH maybe for the anniversary of Greg Carroll's dead in the Chicago 2015-07-02 show. Of course, you can tweet whatever you want.  :)

I was lucky enough to see them play OTH on the 3rd leg of the last tour in Chicago a few nights after the anniversary of his death. I am probably just going to make a new account just for tomorrow so people don't fet mad for spamming their feeds.

Look at what Lillywhite tweeted! You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I retweeted it and added that it would be perfect and fitting for Bono to also wear his RED pants for the performance like he did here - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I was debating participating in this U2 Request because who am I to tell them what to play. However, I LOVE this idea!!  8)

So, tweets are starting to sporadically appear for this. Since it's already tomorrow in some places, I think we've started. Was there an official start time given? Well, yes there is!
