I would give my right arm to hear "Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World", though!

Yes! I'm shattered they didn't play this on the 360 tour, perfect for that stage.

And yeah, I like Acrobat, but geez, people have built it up to be the best song ever. If it ever gets played, I hope they leave their expectations at the gate.

E stagey goodness!! Full band tttyaatw and stay full band version! I'd love to get this!

TTTYA is perfect for the e stage! It would be nice to hear Stay full band again, rather than acoustic.

So Cruel is the lesser of the songs. UV? seriously? So Cruel or maybe Acrobat are my vote for "least best" there is no "worst" on the album. Worst implies a song you dont want to hear period. There's not a skipable second on AB imo.

that being said i wouldn't mind them dropping an AB song or 2 from the setlist of the tour, represent another song off Zooropa <since Zooropa itself is obviously back in> i'd vote for Stay full band, Numb, Dirty Day, The First time, since Pop ain't hapening.

Rehearsed a lot in Turin in 2010 too.

TBH, I'm not too bothered about Acrobat. It's perfectly fine, and I'm of the camp that thinks it would largely be seen as 'pretty good' rather than a holy grail song if it had been played at the time. But I'm 99.99% confident it won't be played.

Nope, just topical. They have already mentioned the crisis in Turin so it makes sense to do so. I am glad they are bringing awareness.

I didn't doubt you for a second, Miryclay! ;)

P.D. James was right on the money with Children of Men.

First, I agree that people should not read too much into anything Bono says when meeting fans.

Second, I do not get the obsession with this song. It's as if some fans will fight you to the death to prove it is the best song ever written and I, personally, don't even think it's the best song off the album that it's from. I listened to it a few days ago and I do think it is good, but I just can't  figure out why some fans are begging the band to play it.

Because everyones tastes are different. Just because its not your favourite off the album, or off U2's catalog doesn't mean allot of other people don't want to hear it.

... and because it actually is one of their best songs... EVER!   :)

The core components/colors of U2 taken to a deeper level.

I can't believe any U2 Fan could knock it.

Thanks for the reactionary statement.
