Gloria, after seeing the bootlegs. I just want them to continue dusting off old songs.

I'd love to hear the three of them played back to back, though the lads might need to take a break afterwards!
Very good idea, especially for cities getting more that 2 shows.  They can very well drop Vertigo and I Will Follow and play Electric Co, Out of Control and Gloria together.  Place would go ballistic.  They can easily play Vertigo near the end if they feel they can't leave it out.  They should actually try this during their 8 shows at MSG.

That's a fine idea. Vertigo could easily be slotted elsewhere in the set. Personally, I think they can get away with not playing if, especially if they play all those up-temp songs early. By the time you get to the end, we've reached the more 'uplifting' part of the show with COBL, Bad (some nights) Beautiful Day and Streets, and I don't think Vertigo would be missed.

I'm a GLORIA fan. Hope they'll play it more often.
I think it fits perfectly in this slot.

So true. I was already predicting what we'll get tomorrow night, is it OOC's turn for the rotation? Or maybe something new perhaps? hmmm
Definitely OOC's turn. Hasn't been played since Boston 2.

All 3 are brilliant and I would not be disappointed with any of those..
Forced at gun point I would probably pick electric co. But like others have been saying, play all three and drop some of the lack lustre numbers (preferably post 2000 tunes, up to and including soi numbers, in favour of this better stuff.)
Leave any form of achtung representation well alone though.

Hope they keep the second slot thing going in Europe.. anyone have concerns with possible changes they'll make? They will have over a month to toy about with the show structure and set list. I actually think they have done a pretty good job on the set lists.. especially for those of us attending one show.. Don't go ruining it boys!

Gloria is flavour of the month, and high in demand due to its rarity.. It's a deep cut dream come true. It's no better than electric co.

I think all three actually work extremely well, though Gloria is my favorite and I was thrilled to get it at my show.

OOC is the best song of the 3 but I get why people love Gloria... more nostalgic for the old days than anything.

However, an even better #2 would be Volcano - assuming they learn how to play it live and take it to the heights it should be at in a live setting.  Then, Volcano into OOC would blow the house down.

I'm leaving for NY Sunday for shows 5 & 6.  PLEASE let Gloria be played at one of these shows! I still can't believe they left it off the Best of 1980-1990 set.

I chose Gloria but I really like how they change it up (wish they would even more!)

It would be great if they added Two Hearts Beat As One as well as mix in some other up-tempo early songs in that slot too like Street Mission, A Celebration, Seconds, and Like a Song and then swap out other songs.

I forgot about A Celebration.  Still shocked it didn't get played during the Vertigo Tour.  It even has 'atomic bomb' in the lyric!
