They will have energy on this tour too, but going by the setlsts so far, it will be a more toned down show that fits with the new album mood...and their age.
Choosing songs like In a Little While, Unforgettable Fire, Drowning Man, Ultraviolet ,Walk On . It isn't going to be the faster tempo, 'louder' stuff like last time with  Out of Control,Electric Co, LPOE, The Fly Mysterious Ways, Zoo Station of the last tour.

I think it is not a matter of maintaining the energy.. but taking it to another level.. have a look at the bloody stage!

It also helps that its a stadium tour versus an arena tour where they play back to back to back shows...

The longer breaks inbetween shows should help them out

Yeah they're almost 50, but look at them! They're in better shape than most 50 year olds! Bono looks better than ever, Edge minus some more hair is the same as when October debuted with a full head of fuzz, Larry works out regularly that those of us taking dates are gonna have to shadow them from his guns, and Adam's smile about touring again is so damn wide i'm worried he's smoking too much pot again! No, we don't have to roll out the wheel chairs just yet... But when we do, i'll be attending that show too!
