Am I the only one let down by the encores?

No real shake ups it just seems like the same set varied between the 2 over and over again :( No real surprises or anything.

Not really, the encores for 360 didn't really vary so I didn't expect much. And they "have to" play their big hits and it's the only place, so limited room

They didn't change songs but did change the order for the encore in Toronto last night. It seemed to flow much better. I thought it worked well .

I was at the Toronto show and I agree with the previous post. It worked extremely well.  Vertigo and Elevation are not my favorite U2 songs but it was a lot of fun last night. I'd rather the entire crowd go off than be satisfied personally with some rarity.

I just hope that when they get to Europe, they do Party Girl with Ali and the champagne routine, unless its now seen as sexist.

The set list in Toronto worked well and when that happens the band and crowd have great energy.

Was also at the show last night. Really enjoyed the encores. Elevation flowed seamlessly into Vertigo in particular. Have seen One close a concert before and it would've worked just fine again, but it didn't feel like it was going to be it last night and no problem for me as IWF packed a lot of energy.

It definitely needs something different... Spanish Eyes or Party Girl could liven it up a bit more.

I would have expected more from Rattle and Hum, considering this is the JT tour.  Angel of Harlem, All I Want is You, or even Desire.

Yes, and dare I repeat, Hawkmoon?
