I really wish they would do a decent MLK / Streets segue, the only one I've seen was for the Super Bowl and that wasn't done too well, it could be great.
pardon?

Really great suggestion except maybe drop mw and ebttrt and keep invisible.

Nah, Invisible is probably one of the lowest points of the show. Without the surprise factor of them appearing in the screen it's pretty uninspiring.

Ok here is what they have to do for Invisible. Since the song is an obvious nod to Kraftwerk they could drop it  and replace it with Tour de France by the German pioneers. Bono of course could out last riding his bike!

Probably, maybe we'll hear some new tunes just like 5 years ago in Turin!

Can see invisible getting jibbed as it is virtually unknown here...it may have been a song that got a bit of mileage in the US with it being on a chat show and American Football but here it is unknown really.

Same with OL.

Bullet can always be reworked into a more European theme....Hands will almost certainly get jibbed.

Maybe NYD, less likely but very much hoped for would be Please and probably one or two tracks that are surprises but not played every show.

That is my guess

I really hope they will play NYD on the Europe leg considering it has more of a European theme to it. Agree with you about Invisible, doubt anyone at the UK shows will know it, heard it played once on the radio the day after its release.

As for political stuff, the migrant crisis will certainly get a mention. Not sure about anything else. Perhaps the recent terrorist atrocities in France will get a mention.

And for NYD, you should go to Poland for a U2 concert.

If ever there was a time to bring back Please it's now, what with all the messing that's going on in the Northern Ireland Assembly and the does the Provisional IRA still exist/does it not question that's threatening to tear down the peace process. Can't see it happening though.

I'm curious what you mean by Bullet perhaps needing a more 'European' theme for this leg.  Would you agree that the reworked lyrics are primarily about the 'experienced' Bono talking to his younger, innocent self?  You're probably right that Hands will/should get dropped.  A second set end of Bullet - Please - The Troubles - With or Without You would work really well in my opinion.

I read that Zooropa is being rehearsed and so is New Years Day for Europe.

My proposed setlist:

1. This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now
2. I Will Follow
3. Vertigo
4. Invisible
5. Cedarwood Road
6. Song For Someone
7. Sunday Bloody Sunday
8. Raised By Wolves
9. Until The End Of The World
10. The Fly
11. Gone
12. Mysterious Ways
13. Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World
14. Sleep Like A Baby Tonight
15. New Year's Day
16. Bullet The Blue Sky
17. Running To Stand Still
18. City Of Blinding Lights
19. With Or Without You
20. Pride (In The Name Of Love)

21. Beautiful Day
22. Elevation
23. Where The Streets Have No Name
24. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

So hope you are right, but I don't think The Miracle will be supplanted as the opener and it works well.

The Fly is the Intermission video and it is terrific!

Wow, U2 must be reading u2gigs and realizing that they haven't played the song of which the continent was inspired since 1993.

IMHO, The Fly, MW and EBTTRT should be on the chopping block.
