Im not suprised either. For Me, someone who is going to see one show and it will be my first U2 show, its not a problem. I will be happy with whatever they play.

I would like to here songs like Pride and WTSHNN and Bullet, As I have never had the joy of seeing and singing along to them live.

Same, as long as they play WOWY im good

I don't mind a relatively static set list, but it should change noticeably (meaning 4-5 songs at least) for multiple nights at 1 venue.  And over the course the 4 month tour in '09, they should switch about 4 songs from the standard set.  That's what they've done for Elevation and Vertigo and it's what we should expect and demand.

Going back to a Zoo TV or Popmart where it was the same every night (even on multiple dates) would be a major disappointment, especially considering they have another 3 albums worth of material at this point.  There was enough set list variation for the Vertigo stadium shows and there better be a few song changes this time around. 

And PLEASE retire Bullet and Pride.  Pride should remain at the Lincoln Memorial.

I agree when they play multiple nights in one city they should mix up the set list.  It's going to be hard to please everyone but I do hope a lot of the songs that haven't seen the light of day will be played.
