Quote from the end of article:

"As we intend to film the last show in Berlin [13 November 2018], we don't want anything that was in the 2015 show."

For the folks who think this is their final tour:

Not for the first time, one ponders on how U2 could possibly follow this latest tour. Does Williams have anything up his sleeve yet?  "Of course...it would be rude not to!" he said, flashing a knowing smile. There are three ideas in the bag.

Great, great article!!! Berlin show on DVD is promising, even more when Willie Williams mentions the band don't want anything from the 2015 show.
It seems like the futur's coming back.

Fans who are expecting an AB wa*k fest in Berlin 2 should get a grip. That's not what this tour is about and they probably need to document highlights of the European leg for posterity.

My hope is that U2 decide to possibly play each of the 'Innocence Suite' and the 'Stay Station' set in each city from here on in. Personally, I think it would be a shame if SBS was skipped in Belfast, Dublin and London. So many local connections.

They have a point about changing part of the setlist in part 1.  I'm at Manchester on the first night, and probably the car bomb effect will be too much for anyone there.
Although I was looking forward to seeing Iris and Cedarwood Road again, I'd rather see something that doesn't lead into a simulated bomb blast at that show.

If they can play the car bomb effect in Ireland they will in Manchester

U2 don't back down from their art. They might put a simulation warning. I always thought people from the North of England weren't snowflakes.

Not when the actual arena was bombed last year at the end of a concert, they probably won't!

Well this quote is a lie. They wont get rid of COBL, BD, even better, elevation, or pride. Although Im suprised these are the only hits left.

We know the facts. Now we all know just how much of a Dangerous Woman Arianna Grande actually is. Thanks Arianna.

Do you want to wager a bet that they will or won't play it?

Just give me the setlist they played last night in Milan and I'm in. What a show that must have been.

MacPhisto might try and sing it.....otherwise it looks like it's all gone 'Berlin' for that section of the show ahead of the filmed show.
