Volcano

One of my favorites from SOI.  But the LA debut sounded horrendous, as well as out of place in the setlist.  I have not seen the Denver performance so can't speak to that.

Am I way off base?  Overreacting?  Will it stay in the show?

Yeah I love this song too.  Were you at the show?   I thought it needed some work for sure but thought Bono hit the chorus good and overall not bad from watching on YouTube.   They seem to have gained some confidence on the second play.  Good to see it played though.

Nope, just YouTube for me.

I agree its great to hear it.  But it sounded like it was barely rehearsed.  Would be great in the #3 or 4 spot, lead into Iris...

Really hope it stays, and improves...

why not?  just not a fan of the song or some other reason (flow, tempo, crowd reaction)?

Agree.  I think performed on the main stage and in the first set, also no need to say it's new.  Just play it loud!

The Edges harmonics playing on Instagram sounds interesting. The studio version has plenty of treatments and don't forget that chorus of voices on the album

It was pretty weak. If they can't make it great then it should be dropped.

Their performance of the song on Jools Holland had more muscle they definitely need to incorporate this song on the main stage and ROCK it out !

I wouldn't say it's horrendous, but definitely too quiet and the breakdown near the end doesn't have nearly the force of the album version. Hopefully they work this out.

Crowd reaction is always a good way to say the song isn't really that good. It was dead panned with most of the new songs night 5 in LA

Volcano should be after Iris. This is a song about the aftermath of Bono loosing Iris. But since the tour is already well established with Iris -> Cedarwood Road, we'll keep seeing Volcano in the e-stage.
