 I mean maybe in a few tours but I doubt the next. I played it safe and voted no

No. Can't see it happening. Certainly not vertigo and boots in the same set, and vertigo has broader appeal.

Yes, but not this upcoming one.

I hope it's never played ever again. Worst song ever.

I hope that they will. It's a killer live song.

I think it was Edge (correct me if I'm wrong) that said they didn't know what they had with Boots until they found out how to play it live.

I think they will at least a few more times. I doubt it will be a mainstay but I don't think it will never appear again.

And I want to mirror the comments on how much it rocked live. I've always liked but not loved the song, but live it was a highlight each concert I was at.

I'm certainly not having Boots back at the expense of Vertigo which I adore. Hope they don't try and alternate between them. I do however think COBL and Magnificent could be alternated very effectively.

No, I think we've seen the last of it.

Yes.  Say what you want about the song on record (I liked it, but it was in the bottom third of NLOTH for me) but it ROCKED live. I can't see U2 just forgetting about it, knowing how well it comes off in a live setting.

I'd honestly be more surprised if it didn't come back, at least for a bit. Numb is the only lead single not to have been played on a subsequent tour, I think.

And not only was it good live, but the band clearly *knew* it was good live (And said so repeatedly) and even stuck it in the Glasto set. I think it'll be back for sure, though probably not as a regular.

Then we can undoubtedly expect a new mix of it on the next best of

It'll probably trade off with another rocker.
 
I would say Vertigo, but they will play Vertigo forever because of how popular it was.

As long as they don't lose that lovely chiming riff on the prechoruses. I love that.

Doing a live version of I'll Go Crazy in the style of the album version would be preferable.

No, that's what U2 have an acoustic section for.

When was the last time they did a full band version of desire? Surely that can still be a great live moment, I think it's been neglected too long.

IIRC they did do it once or twice on 360 (At least once in Australia? If memory serves? It may have begun acoustic and turned electric...) but yes, it is criminal that they don't play Desire properly much anymore.

Yep they played it raw and dirty in 06 at a few aussie shows. On the Explorer no less...

I'm not a fan of the song, so I hope that they don't sacrifice a spot on the setlist for it.

The "Let me in the sound" part would be a great snippet in the middle or at the end of another song....

If there was anything consistent about 360 it was that they wanted to rock the stadium as much as possible. Get on Your Boots fit well into that genre.  But if they want to do something more ambient and experimental like most of No Line actually was then there are many songs that would not resurface including Vertigo, The Fly, Even Better than the real thing, etc.
