Title: Your Ideal NLOTH Themed Tour Setlist
Post by: The Unknown Caller on June 09, 2011, 11:20:58 AM
This is not a thread to discuss whether or not the U2360 tour is really the NLOTH tour.

This is yet another 'Create your own setlist' thread. I realise that lots of people are fed up of them, but I know that others such as myself can never be fed up of them! (I'm looking at you, Boom! :P ) And as far as I know, this one hasn't been made since the tour really began anyway;

So, if you were given the task of constructing a tour specifically for the NLOTH album and its themes or mood as you define them, what would it look like? How similar would it be to even 2009 360?  You don't even need to worry about including 'hits' if they don't match the mood or theme you want, and there are no rules on songs which you can include- you can even use 'new' songs, since most of them came out of the NLOTH sessions after all, but it should be about typical concert length- 23/24 songs.

In my own, I've actually tried to build a narrative using mostly songs which I feel suit the atmosphere of NLOTH and its various moods. Consequently, I've mostly picked songs from NLOTH, unreleased and TUF, which I feel share a mood and atmosphere. Interestingly enough, after it was written, I realised that I'd only included one 90s song. Dunno what that says!

Intro- Space Oddity
1. Return of the Stingray Guitar
2. No Line On The Horizon
3. Get On Your Boots

20. Breathe
21. Stand-Up Comedy
22. I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight (Album version)
23. Pride (In The Name Of Love)
24. '40'

No Line On The Horizon- Nine songs
The Unforgettable Fire- Five songs
The Joshua Tree- Four songs
Achtung Baby- One song
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb- One song

Interesting to see how almost everyone seems to see Moment of Surrender as either a closer or at the very least, late in the encore!

Oh, I dunno. I mean, it has LOADS from NLOTH, but to be honest, if it wasn't for the fact that it opened with a NLOTH song, I think that would a greatest hits/nostalgia setlist....
