Thanks for the link!   That's a funny looking microphone for Bono!

Cool!  Thanks for the pics.  I am still surprised that New Years Day has not showed up, and they have to bring back Bad.  That is one of the greatest songs to ever witness live.

Can I just say, "Drowning Man"  :o :o :o

I so cannot wait for that!

As for Angel of Harlem, I really wanted to see that on their last tour (my first show!), but they denied me!

I love this band so much, but it is a shame that they are (to this point in rehearsals) ignoring content from Zooropa and Pop.  Stay and Dirty Day would be great to hear live again.  Last Night On Earth and Please would also work well with this tour.  I Still Haven't is old for me.  I'd much prefer Exit and One Tree Hill if they feel they need other JT songs.  What about Electrical Storm?  Window In They Skies?  It'd be unfortunate if they ignored those tracks, they'd be great to hear live!  Oh, and what about Rattle and Hum?  Wouldn't God Part II rock live?  It certainly did during Lovetown.  Hawkmoon 269?  Plugged in Desire?  

I hope these songs see the light of day this tour.  Presently, that setlist as rehearsed from today is rather mellow and predictable.  From Still Haven't Found to Unknown Caller it's pretty slow tempo (Breathe may save that section, however, as it is more upbeat) but I don't know, for the most part, I'm unexcited by the setlist with exception of Drowning Man and UF.  I just think they have much better options available to them than what they have apparently chosen.  

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.  Going to be a great tour, no doubt.  Just could be beyond great (IMO) with some better song choices.

Reminds of the melbourne soundcheck during the Popmart tour.  I guess the orgins of 'walk on' can be traced back to 1997/98.

Just as I predicted and just how it was in virtually the entire Vertigo Tour, U2 are gifting their fans with a POP-free setlist.

Brilliant move by them.

Cheers,

Wow, are you being ironic, Jick, or just happy they're leaving Pop off the setlist?

Leaving songs from POP off the setlist is a mistake.  If anyone has seen the Popmart DVD from Mexico City, wouldn't you agree Last Night on Earth was a standout, especially as it led into NYD?  That was just intense.  Further, Gone and Staring At The Sun accoustic are very, very good.  For whatever reason, U2 just can't accept that Pop, despite what some have said about it along with their feeling it was never "finished" properly, is a very good album.  As such, they need to reward their fanbase with playing songs off of it.

Happy to see U2 knowing what material to ignore.
