What was the biggest set list shocker for...
« on: June 14, 2009, 11:59:13 AM »
I'll only go with tours i've seen...

Pop Mart - I Will Follow - loved the way they did live, didn't expect it!
Elevation - Wild Honey and The Ground Beneath Her Feet - NJ Shows
Vertigo - Fast Cars and Crumbs, and actually Running to stand still - so happy i heard this live in my life.

(I still haven't seen what I'm looking for - a U2 show! But I'll do it anyway.)

Vertigo - An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart
Elevation - All I Want is You
PopMart - Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
ZooTV - Satellite of Love

The first leg of Zoo TV (indoor), when they opened with 8 still brand new songs, and ended up playing 10 out of 12 from AB. Not to mention performing Dancing Queen as well.

Agreed Hawkmoon, but then to continue on with this subject, they never played Acrobat! Biggest shock to me ever, I think it would have been incredible live.

yeah, completely. They do throw a few surprises with cover versions etc, but this was the biggest shock (and risk) imo.

Also

Babyface and Zooropa. Though neither lasted long in the set!

Vertigo Tour - playing Vertigo twice!

Why was HMTMKMKM such a shock for the Popmart tour. It was a single a couple of years before, a great song, and they wanted to do it live.

I'm going to start a thread on this ...

I've only seen U2 on three tours so here are some of my shock highlights

Vertigo  - who's gonna ride your wild horses; an cat dubh;  zoo station.  I never thought I would hear these songs live.

Elevation - the fly; wake up dead man (full band version)

Popmart - MLK. Dedicated to princess Diana who had died just days before the show. Played before One it was a very moving version.

The First Time and Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses back-to-back as the first two songs of encore #1 the last time I saw them. Also, Bad as the very last song of the night at the same show.

ZooTV - Daddy's Gonna Pay. Couldn't see where it was going to fit, but fit it did.
Popmart - I Will Follow. OK, not a 'shock' as I'd seen the setlists by the time it got to Australia, but worked perfectly
Vertigo - The First Time @ 2nd Melbourne Concert. One Tree Hill in Auckland. Wow.
