Title: Which of these songs since 2000 would you want to hear on the new tour?

This poll is in light of Bono's recent comment in an interview "Id be interested to know what setlists would come out of the fansites, that would be really helpful to know what are the favourite songs."

2 good songs and a load of dross for me on that list.
One of the good songs namely Cedars would probably bomb live, especially at a big gig with lots of casual fans there
The other namely kite would be a welcome enough song to re-introduce.

The rest I honestly couldn't care less about hearing.

Kite, Love & Peace, Crumbs. But also Windows! Windows is a hidden gem.

I just imagine Windows replacing OSC & Mercy replacing Yahweh on HTDAAB...(plus using the alternate ABOY). Would make a killer album.

I voted Kite as I wouldn't really care to see any of the others live

None of them, except maybe Cedars

When I Look at the World would've been a good one to have.

Love And Peace Or Else
Stand Up Comedy
Cedars Of Lebanon

LAPOE should never have been dropped from the setlist. It is one of U2's finest love songs of all time. And it fits in so seamlessly with the SBS/BTBS/Please area of a setlist (I'd also now add into that Raised By Wolves). The solo is mesmerising - no other word for it.

Stand Up Comedy needs to be played, if only for my benefit! My all time favourite U2 song played live? I think I would be beyond excitement! I also think it may turn a few people's opinions around on the song. Do you hear me U2? Play this song live!!!!!

Cedars Of Lebanon is dying to be played live as well. It would fit in well as a concert closer, especially in an intimate indoor gig (which is what they're aiming for next isn't it?). I think it would sound amazing live.

I have to say, this is a very weak list.

I only voted on SUC and Cedars

Ugh, terrible list -- none of those. Personally, I'd like to hear In A Little While.

Edit: Actually, I'd like to hear Cedars so I've voted for that song.

Electrical Storm
Stand Up Comedy (this would have kicked ass last tour, I wish they would have played it)
Love And Peace Or Else (loved this on Vertigo)

Kite.

COL would be a mood killer.

Possibly Window...

The rest can go to the circular file.

Just Kite.

Terrible list. Kite. Maybe.

None of these at all. In fact, I hope that they don't play anything at all from ATYCLB or HTDAAB.

Post by: ehtaerb on October 26, 2014, 03:10:24 AM
Love & Peace, Cedars & maybe Window in the Sky.

I would rather hear songs I've not heard before

Electrical Storm! One of the best songs of the 2000s era.

Have to say I wasn't that enamoured by ES. I much preferred WITS

Voted for Kite, but honestly, I'd rather have all 11 from SoI, plus Crystal Ballroom, plus anything from Boy, October, War, and The Unforgettable Fire.  That's it.

Hate to leave off Cedars, but I just don't see a crowd appreciating it. They'd likely treat is like they did Your Blue Room on 360 which was disrespectful, so I'd rather it not be played. It deserves better.

Now, if they were doing 2000 seat or less venues, then absolutely, play it!

Kite without thinkin' twice.

Kite without a doubt. I remember listening to this song at the Bell Center in Montreal and being blow away by the entire experience of not only the music but the atmosphere of seeing a show in Montreal. One of the best places to see a concert IMO.

Post by: 1985 on October 27, 2014, 07:00:14 AM
None of these, not with the context of this album and the tradeoffs. I'd much rather hear the new material mixed with songs from their first three albums.

Crumbs and LAPOE!!

Crumbs, Windows and Kite, in that order. Hearing Edge soar through that closing solo on CFYT live was magic.

Besides Kite and maybe Electrical Storm, fans don't seem interested in these songs.  Seems like most people want more songs from the 90s - especially Acrobat.

Will the band ignore the 2000s?  I can't imagine them not playing Beautiful Day and Vertigo.
