It is inevitable that Boots will be on the setlist and possibly early on as well.

Dont be surprise if Boots turned out to be one of those songs that sound nice (if not great) live.

It hasn't been great or even good live.  It's been flat as hell.  The song relies heavily on multiple percussion tracks to drive it and maintain momentum (especially during "let me in the sound" Zeppelin section).

I agree that the live versions so far haven't been good - i've actually described one or two as dire. It's still going to be in the set, though, and i want it to be. I just really hope they can nail it properly for the tour.

Even the best can't please everyone. It is what it is.  ;)

You'll be getting an early beer.  Judging by past tours, 1st songs released, is 2nd song played. Drink up my friend!

i'm very sure GOYB will be a big hit during the entire tour!

It's one of U2's worst songs ever, probably the worst. Lillywhite said it best 'a beck b side'.
