I really love the new cd, more than the last two when they originally came out. As disappointing as it might be though, I dont think we could get lucky enough for them to drop Boots, but oh well.

Instead I wouldnt be a bit miffed if they started the shows sorta like the Zootour with something like this.

1. No Line on the Horizon
2. Magnificent
3. Crazy
4. Moment of Surrender (this one might be a pipe dream)

Then carry on with our regular favorites (maybe Beautiful Day) while later mixing in Breathe and Boots. I also dont think we will get lucky enough for them to give up on Vertigo just yet. I bet they throw it in around Boots somewhere.  :P

I think Boots is fine to play, I just don't want to hear Stand Up Comedy  :( That's rivaling Trash, Trampoline and Party Girl right now as my least favorite U2 song of all time.

Before reading this thread I was guessing they would play these (in no order)...
No Line (they BETTER play this cause it's my favorite from this cd)
Magnificent
Moment of Surrender
Crazy (I think this would be awesome live)
Boots
White as Snow

Like someone said before, I was thinking WAS would be the new '40' to close the show, or the last one before the encore.

The only one I'd rule out would be Cedars of Lebanon. I think Being Born, NLOTH and Stand Up Comedy will really lift off live. This album was made for stadiums.

I agree!!!  Lift off will be achieved and these songs will be powerful live, I am predicting.  I'm stoked!

Nailed on:

No Line
Magnificent
Boots
Breathe

Rather Likely:

MOS (if they can sort it out)
Unknown Caller
Crazy
Fez

Least Likely:

WAS
Cedars (though maybe as a show closer a la Love Is Blindness)
Stand Up Comedy

Why Not Give A Go And Make My Day?:

Winter

They should drop Boots from the setlist.  Boots was a bust on the radio and Grammy's in the US and decreased ticket demand for the tour.  If the first single was Magnificent or Breathe tickets would have been much tougher to get in major markets and second shows added would have been an immediate sellout.  The song just doesn't have it and I think even now after the initial performances it seems very forced.  I hope I am wrong but they are playing huge stadiums and that song in my opinion doesn't deserve a spot in the setlist.  If they play it, I hope it will be later in the set so I can use the restroom and get a beer.  Any other song on the album will be great, WAS and COL might be a tough sell in US stadiums, but what make U2 so great is U2 live.  So we will wait and see..... 
I think you have this backwards. Boots held up much better in the US than Magnificent, the release of the latter could not slow the album falling into the low 40s in the top 100. Neither the song or video  has gotten any traction. However you cane sure that BOTH will be played on tour. I disagree with those predicting 7-8 songs from he new album. I think it will be more like 5. I think we got a preview of the songs fro NLOTH we'll see in concert during the Letterman performances.
