No Line - VERSION 2
(play it right now to get the idea.. Larry coming in first for a while.. then edge.. adam.. bono..)
= everyone flippin.

Absolutely!! It would put everyone into the right mood, I think!

Nielsen, I NEED Ultraviolet to be on the setlist, but not as an opener.

From that list it would have to be No Line. As soon as I heard it I thought it should be the opener.

If I could have any song, I would choose Bad. Start off with all the lights off and then blast on all the lights at exactly 3.01 minutes in (UF version). It would just be awsome!!

 I think they should put me in charge of the set list and the lighting  ;D

I really think that the crazy remix will make a great starter..think it about it!

Magnificent, I'm very much hoping to see Bad Live, but I think it's too serious in a way to use as an opener, imho anyways.

BonoBeatle, I think you might be right. The Crazy remix could make for a great opener.

I'm still for No Line or No Line 2, though ;)

Ultraviolet? No? Alright  :D

I'll buy it.  They'd never do it, but as the setlists stands now, I'd prefer they open the main set with Ultraviolet and open the encore with Breathe.

but they'd never do it.  gotta start with the new album.  i wish they'd kick that rule to the curb.

i voted GOYB 'coz i would like a thundering drum roll while background voice of Bono shouting "The Future Needs A Big Kiss" repeatedly. then comes Edges death-defying guitar!

oh my, oh my...surely, the crowd would be jumping and roaring as if a big giant lion with the Giant Claw has emerged on stage!  ;D

i agree and the song doesnt let up from start to finish GOYB to start..none of this walk on business, they've already done that for the elevation tour...something original please for the claw /space station
