As others have said I would LOVE fro U2 to finally play Acrobat but it might bring down the mood of the show.

My 2nd choice is Some Days are Better than Others because I think the song with its funky bassline would fit right into the mood of this 360 Tour

Lady with the spinning head.
Didn't like Dirty day when it replaced Bad on the Zoomerang tour.

  • There's no them, only us.

Although I'd really like to see Zooropa played.

Acrobat is the obvious choice, but there must be a reason why they havn't played it once.  I think the song probably doesnt translate well live.  Thats just my gut feeling.  Though it does have similar pace to Exit during the more intense part of that song.  And Exit translates well live, so beats me why they havn't played Acrobat.

So Cruel they've played 4x,  if you heard live versions on youtube.  It doesnt sound all that great.  It sounds alot superior in the album version imo.

As for Zooropa it has been played but only 3x.  I also think it wont fit well with the set list and their current theme.   If they only played 3x during the ZooTv tour where it would seem that song would be used perfectly.  Why would they use it now?  Plus again it probably doesn't translate well live.  Thats most likely why they only played it 3x.

No "Drowning man", "bring down the mood"
No "Acrobat", bring down the mood"

Give me a freaking break.

A great song is a great song, if "the mood" can recover from dirges like Stuck it can can recover from anything

I like Acrobat...very good tune....and yes I'd like them to play it live, however the song has taken on a whole new level of popularity BECAUSE they've never played it live....I think this board will lose half of it's complaints if they DO play it! lol
