Ultraviolet
« on: May 11, 2009, 03:35:36 PM »
I know ALMOST, if not every, U2 fan would love to see Ultraviolet (Light My Way) come back as a staple on the U2360 Tour. I really think it has the same sound as much of No Line on the Horizon, and videos of Ultraviolet being played live during ZooTv prove it sounds great live. 3 questions:
Do you want it to be brought back?
Do you THINK it will be brought back?
Do you think U2 will make an honest effort to bring back much of their older stuff (considering this could be their last real tour) ex. Lemon, Wire, UF, Surrender, Wild Horses, Zooropa etc. etc.

To answer your first two questions: HELL YES!

To answer your last question: don't bring your hopes up :/

1.  Bring the song back!

2.  Perhaps

3.  Doubt we'll ever see Lemon and Zooropa played live again.  As for Numb, I think there's a chance.

 Ye would love to see ultraviolet back in the set . it was great on the ZOOTV tour.
 Not sure if we will see it this tour but Edge says they are considering all older songs and some b-sides so you never know .
 
Would love to hear Acrobat played and bring back UF into the set it would sound amazing in the big stadiums .
 

Boom Cha!

I would really see it back !!!!  Haven't seen it since ZooTV-Zooropa.

Is there a way to get in Touch with MacGuiness to ask him to play that songs  ;)

What U2 (manager) should do is a poll with songs and fans would voted.  Then, once the poll is over, the group will take it into account for their setlist.

I used to kind of skim over 'Ultraviolet'- not that I disliked it, but I didn't really notice it. Then one of my friends began singing the chorus constantly after hearing Achtung Baby for the first time.

And ever since then, the chorus has been stuck in my head!

So to answer the questions; yes, I'd love to see it live, but no, I doubt it'll be back (Just my pessimism setting in).

Judging from what Edge has recently said, any song can make an appearance. Have hope!

In other words, Pride will be the opening song ;)

LOL - many a true word said in jest!

it'll be the same set as Vertigo, but with a snippet of Boots!
