I’ve never done a set list before.  This isn’t what I would pick if I could, somehow, hire U2 to do a show in my backyard and hand them a set list. 

But here’s what I came up with, based on the quasi-parameters they’ve set with the current tour, with the fast beginning, autobiographical 2nd part, some of the hits after intermission, and then a kick ass encore.  Interchangeable songs from show to show are denoted with the “/”. 

The Miracle
Out of Control
I Will Follow/The Electric Co.
Vertigo
Iris
Tomorrow/Drowning Man
Song For Someone/Surrender
Cedarwood Road
Volcano
This is Where You Can Reach Me Now
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Raised By Wolves

Invisible
With or Without You
I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
Mysterious Days/Desire
New Year’s Day/Beautiful Day
Bullet the Blue Sky
Running to Stand Still
Every Breaking Wave
One/The Troubles
Pride

City of Blinding Lights
Where the Streets Have No Name
Bad/Walk On
“40”

I'm not one of those selfish U2 nerd fans who wants completely obscure songs replacing recognizable ones.  I want everybody to be happy.  Every tour there are like 6 or 7 songs that U2 pulls from older albums which aren't "mega hits".  I'm terribly disappointed with this tour's selection of such songs.  Here is what I would change.

Acrobat replaces Miracle Drug
Magnificent replaces City of Blinding
Gone replaces Angel of Harlem
Please replaces one of the new album tracks
Staring at the Sun acoustic over Sunday bloody Sunday acoustic
Sometimes You Can't Make it or Original of the Species or Kite replaces Sweetest Thing

realistic 2 night setlists trying keep the flow, atmosphere and hits for the casual fans they are obviously trying to create, whilst mixing in a few nuggets for us - nothing too radical here but enough to keep everyone happy.

I was inspired to make my own setlist today by the disappointment thread. I'm not disappointed, because U2 are like wizards...they play precisely what they are meant to.  ;D However, a combination of lackluster performance (I was at L.A. 1 and hope to go to Montreal 3 & 4 next week...anyone have floor tickets for sale?) and/or personal preference had me wishing for a few changes. Here is the setlist I would have liked to seen, with some annotations.

We're aware of the overall themes of the show: no them, only us...north side and south side...personal growth and intimacy. And that Set 1 is supposed to represent disturbance of some kind, and Set 2 offers some hope. I've tried to keep these intact, while providing a trilogy within each set that carries its own narrative arc.


First Set
1.   The Miracle
2.   Out of Control
3.   I Will Follow

Set One, Scene One: Bono alone in his bedroom under the single light bulb, conflicted, confused, angry, and by the end of the scene ready to burst forth from his room and confront the world.

4.   Iris
5.   Volcano
6.   Cedarwood Road, Bad (snippet)
7.   Song for Someone

Set One, Scene Two: This cycle, all from the new album, shows the different layers Bono would have to make his way through in order to become a part of the world. First his mother's death puts him on shaky ground, causing him to look for answers out in the neighborhood, where he finds camaraderie, disappointment and trauma, and finally a woman-shaped port in the storm.

8.   Last Night on Earth (snippet), Dirty Day
9.   Raised By Wolves, White as Snow (snippet)
10.   Until the End of the World

Set One, Scene Three: A shift in perspective from Bono to the broader world, through the eyes of an IRA soldier. Replacing Sunday Bloody Sunday with Dirty Day is an act of pure preference, because I think SBS is great for this cycle. However, I thought their performance was lacking and I've never been a huge fan of the song. Last Night on Earth is a great transition from the personal relationship in Scene Two to the impersonal violence of the Troubles. Its beat is an outstanding intro to SBS, but it also transitions seamlessly into Dirty Day. DD changes the dynamic and serves as a more effective transition than SBS; it is an understated, sinister lead-in to Raised By Wolves rather than an explosion. It represents Bono's uneasiness as the world beyond creeps into his teenage narcissism, and merges with the soldier's apprehensive surrender to hatred and violence. It introduces the "warrior's journey" that will close out the first set, starting with the blistering chaos and blind rage of dogmatic violence in Raised By Wolves. The White as Snow snippet is essential here, as the soldier lays dying on the streets of Dublin, lost in nostalgia and sentiment toward an idealized memory of his lost humanity. As Bono trails off on "white as snow..." the Edge's searing intro to Until the End of the World breaks into the soldier's reverie like God saying, "hey, don't feel too sorry for yourself, let's take a look at the consequences of your choices..." The first verse at the dinner party is like the nostalgia of White as Snow interrupted by the soldier's dark mood and the looming presence of the violence he'll commit to make it material. We end with the ambiguity of forgiveness for a person doing terrible things in the name of God. The tension is palpable across the arena, and the crowd dare not leave or even move as

Second Set
1.   Elevation
2.   Even Better Than the Real Thing
3.   Mysterious Ways

Set Two, Scene One: Here we see Bono becoming a socially conscious public figure, able to transcend the violence of his surroundings by becoming global. Elevation is a special song for me that represents a great time in my life, so I'm always interested in hearing it. I think it's a great opener for the set as well, immediately pulling us out of the depths with a great spatial metaphor. The exuberance continues into the next song, and then transforms into a meditation on the relationship between God, nature, and humanity.

4.   Every Breaking Wave, Who Wants to Live Forever (snippet)
5.   The Troubles
6.   Ordinary Love, All I Want Is You (snippet)
7.   Pride, With or Without You (snippet)

Set Two, Scene Two: There is always a tension between our private and public lives in young relationships, since we're not only growing as persons but as persons-in-the-world. How attached are we to love, and how much of ourselves do we sacrifice, how much do we hold ourselves back, in order to maintain a bond with another. This set is about overcoming the fear that we will disappear into another at the very moment we're discovering that we have an identity in the world that's all our own. The cycle begins with a conversation between two lovers about the future, one that leads them to wonder if forever isn't too long a time. They come through the anxiety of loss of self to find that love is a verb, a set of daily practices that connects you with who you really are. It's a two-person job, however, and there's a realization that lovers don't consume one another; rather, they become a part of one another's environment. The first verse of Ordinary Love uses sea imagery that nicely bookends with Every Breaking Wave. This brings joy in the final song, and a celebration of the ambivalence of the quotidian as a bridge to the next set.

8.   I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, Mother and Child Reunion (snippet)
9.   Beautiful Day
10.   Moment of Surrender (snippet), Yahweh

Set Two, Scene Three: The dialogue between the private and public from Set One reaches apotheosis, but it is now about the personal versus the universal. Love has transformed from a threat to personal growth into an eye in the hurricane of life, a calm and stable place from which we can take the measure of the material and spiritual worlds. ISHFWILF is a vivacious celebration of the fact that an ever-expanding universe grants us the potential for limitless growth. Thus we can experience a Beautiful Day with humility rather than skepticism, and then take the leap of faith from which our most powerful statements can be made. God can be everything without us becoming nothing.

Encore
1.   Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me
2.   Invisible
3.   One

Conclusion: Like any good conclusion, this cycle summarizes what's come before and presents us with a clear theme and thesis. Human relationships are a chaotic mess of interactions, of love and hate, of pleasure and pain, and sometimes we cannot make the distinctions. Invisible is about the struggles we face when we achieve a new level of consciousness, about making our way through the liminal spaces between child and adult, single and together, private and public trauma...innocence and experience. We are always a product of where we've come from and where we're going.

We're one, but we're not the same is about these two sides of our selves as much as it is about two lovers or the entire human race. It's a call to recognize that who we have been does not determine who we may become.

First you made me enter, and then you made me crawl is a recognition that enlightenment will always be uncomfortable, or perhaps an admonishment to carry on despite what lessons we may have learned from the journey we just collectively undertook.
