I Was Wondering......
« on: March 18, 2009, 11:58:55 PM »
Why don't the boys play "Two Hearts Beat As One" live anymore? I've been to every tour since 1987 and
never seen them do this song. They could use vocal tracks for the background as they do some on other songs. Any answers or ideas.  ???

I don't know why they don't, but it would be cooler if they did.

They probably felt it was dated when they retired it.  They did pull it out once for Lovetown but haven't played it since.  From what I understand it just takes two of them to get a song pulled off the setlist. 

The only things they've played off of War since The Unforgettable Fire Tour are Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year's Day, and 40 with that single performance of Two Hearts Beat As One as the only other track played since 1985. 

But that's not too terribly odd.  Only Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby have seen much more than three songs play much beyond their original tour.  Even on last tour they played as many as five songs off of Joshua Tree on some nights.

I love that song and I think it is timeless! I wish they would do it. The video with Peter in Paris is wonderful!!

Thats one of my staple U2 songs when I listen to all different years. I can go from Unknown caller and then back to Two Hearts no prob. I would love to see them do it again.

Moreover, it would fit very well with the sound of the new songs. Especially "Stand up Comedy", IMO.
I'm all for it!  ;D
