Title: SPOILER: Is It Too Late For U2 To Add New Songs To Their Set?
Post by: jick on October 18, 2009, 09:47:26 PM
There are only four shows to go.  Is it safe to say that U2 will be playing only songs they have already previously played on this tour?

Or is there a precedent where 4 show to go, U2 have still added some unplayed songs?

I ask because I will be flying in all the way from the Philippines to catch the Rose Bowl show.  U2 seem to have already hit their touring stride and it could ruin the show if they will play a song they have no rehearsed well - such as something from POP perhaps.

So back to the question, for the remaining songs in this leg - considering their are all one-night-stands - is there a chance U2 will add an unplayed, unproven song?

I sure hope not.  It wouldn't be such a great feeling to be flying all the way from the Philippines and go to Rose Bowl just to catch U2 playing some garbage like Mofo or Discotheque.

Cheers,

J

I doubt it, a snippet at best. I'm going to the last three in USA, just hoping they dont play identical sets, but if they do i'd still be happy.

You just cannot help yourself can you. I would laugh my a** off if they suddenly decided to play one or two songs from Pop and completely ruin your concert. Every other fan in attendence would love it if they mixed it up a bit and played something from Pop, but your long trip from the Philipines would be ruined and hopefully a waste of your money  ;D

Why do you pick on the Pop album again here? Surley the same could be said if they tried any other song from their catalogue that had not been played yet.

Troll!

My friend Glenn will be at that show, and he is originally from the Philippines, so say hi to him if you run into him ;)

They have done snippets of Mofo during COBL at 6 N.A. shows, so there is always that chance that you will still get to hear something from Pop live.  ;D

In all honesty, even if they do "the worst" and play 2-3 songs you don't like, you still will get 20 of the 23 songs that you do like.  Relax, enjoy the show, and have fun in my old stomping grounds (I grew up about 15 min. from Pasadena).

Feh...

They could completely botch everything they play horribly, but I'd still enjoy it.

U2's worst shows are miles better than most bands' best shows, except for maybe Springsteen and DMB.

Ah so much explained.  You are the infamous J.  Yes they've added stuff with only a few shows to go:
NJ2 elevation: Wild Honey
Seattle Popmart: Full band version of Stand By Me (which was a first, AFAIK).

J, I don't know why you bother.  I can be as critical as anyone, but I've never seen anyone b**** about pointless crap as much as you.  Seriously, you actually said Adam is playing like Flea?  Really?  Do you actually think Adam is capable of anything approaching Flea?  For that matter, even if he was changing things, up have you ever considered that John Entwistle, of the who, influenced Adam? 

It doesn't matter, if U2 plays exactly like the record, you'll complain that they phoned it in  and if they change things up, you'll complain about that.

I'm not a big fan of the song Lemon, but if they played it, I'd be happy to hear it.  Maybe I'd like the way they performed it (which would certainly be different from Zooropa, if for no other reason than Bono's voice is 16 years beyond that falsetto).

All I can say is that I will enjoy the shows.  The sets may change slightly, but when the productions are as huge as this one is, it's hard to make any quick changes.  But if they did, I wouldn't care.  With the exception of Chicago one, which seemed to go off a cliff halfway through (no idea why), the shows have been fine (though Tampa was way too hot).
A friend who's been there for every tour since 87 believes this may be their best show ever.  I'm not sure if it is or not, but it's probably the best stadium show.

Enjoy the show but I hope to never run into you.....you're forever a Debbie Downer.

it's possible that they will add songs, but not necessarily likely. What is more likely is that they will rotate out a few songs as they always seem to so far. With 1-nighters they normally only change the middle few (Elevation/Myst Ways/acoustic numbers/UTEOTW/Unknown Caller) and occasionally throw "Bad" in.

Worry not. They have been adding songs very late in tours previously : "Fast Cars", "Window In the Skies", "Lemon", "Dirty Day", etc have all debuted with only a handful of shows left to go on past tours.

Well at the last Vertigo tour gig in Hawaii they shook it up...brought Green Day and Pearl Jam on stage, played The Saints Are Coming and Rockin' In The Free World. So you might have to watch out for that, especially since you don't like them playing three chord covers.

They're filming the show, so I fully expect them to play the same set they've been playing since Atlanta.  The only variables are will they play Your Blue Room or In A Little While.  I suppose they could bring back Pride, but unless they're just adding more songs to the set, I can live without it.  I haven't heard it since Chicago, and it hasn't been missed.

I'm actually a bit bummed that they're filming....they're always a little too stiff when they're filming......regardless, I hope they don't use the ADD producer they've used since elevation.  3 Videos and only Slane is watchable.

You have 4 best bets but serious longshots....

1) Mofo
2) Drowning Man (Juls & I talked DM way back in June!)
3) October
4) White as Snow

All have been rehearsed at some point during this tour...

Enjoy the Final 4!

I guess we will have a POP-free setlist in Rosebowl.  Bono can snippet POP all he wants in the show, as long as its not a full song wasted then we're looking good.

I guess the announcement about Rosebowl answers the question. It indeed is too late for U2 to add new songs to their set.  Not even the longshots will make an appearance as this tour wraps up.

Why? Not that I'm agreeing with anything he has said on this particular thread (or several others), but "probably" or even certainly if all those things you said are true, it sure isn't grounds to ban anyone. As far as blocking him, that's your choice. If I don't want to give attention to anyone, I don't respond to their posts.

if they were doing two shows in pasadena i think they might pull out the odd surprise (i know we've been saying that all tour ) as its one show im guessing if they are filming it for a dvd then they will pretty much play the songs they have been doing all tour ,just depends on the songs they will play in the  section leading up to UF either your blue room or in a little while or stuck... ,until the end of the world etc people watching the dvd want to see the new songs and some of the songs they haven't played to much lately like uf.so i think we pasadena will get pretty much the tour standard show.

I posted this on the "Stand Up Comedy Thread, but am pasting it here because it seems to fit:

I have a suspicion and hope that Stand Up Comedy will appear starting the 3rd leg.

I dont have hard evidence of this, but this seems to be when they try bringing in new(ish) songs from the latest albums.  I think this is when Wild Honey, What Goin On, Miss Sarejevo, Original of the Species, Fast Cars, The Saints Are Coming, and Crumbs From Your Table started to show much more regular basis.

Just checked u2gigs and this is correct.  Although for some of these songs, they had been played a few times on the 1st and/or 2nd leg, this was very sporadic.  They didnt start incorporating those songs in a more cosistent basis until the 3rd leg.  While some of the songs were not even introduced at all till the 3rd leg.

360 seems to have less variation comparative to Elevation and Vertigo tours, but 360 also has less nights in the same city.  I think there is a good chance of seeing the appearance of Stand UP Comedy, or at least one more song from NLOTH

only thing is... if they do add another song, will they then drop an NLOTH song?  It better not be Unknown Caller!  IF i had to see one NLOTH song dropped, I would pick Breathe.  Not because I dont like the song, but because on the record, but even more so live, all the other NLOTH songs are far better in my opinion.  Also, I can see trading Breathe for Stand UP because they have a very similar message and they can be categorized as thier more rock oriented songs.  Unless, in general they want the show as a whole to be more rock oriented. I would think a more rock oriented show would go over better in America.

I also think that in terms of selling the album and selling more concert DVDs it would make sense to see a changeup of at least 4 songs from the first 2 legs.  That way you could sell 2 different Concert DVDs much easier.

It's safe to assume they will not be adding more songs to the setlists because they lack the music talent and balls to improvise. This day in age it's pretty weak that they play the same setlist on a tour. Goes to show they want to get in and out with the least amount of effort. I passed on this silly, over-the-top tour.

The truth is, of course, that at the very start of the tour, a lot of people warned that they wouldn't be able to play around that much with the setlist because of the simple practicalities of a stadium tour- the sort of variety we saw in Elevation and Vertigo was impossible. And lots of people- including myself- kind of ignored that... but it's turned out to be true. Ah well, I love the set, so I'm not really complaining, however much I want to see Discotheque or The Fly or whatever!  :)

Just wait for Streets and look to the $250 seats.  Philippine flag will be there.  The one I bought is 4-feet by 8-feet.  Just google the flag so you guys know what it looks like.

My flight to LAX is in 14 hours so I am all pumped up for that.

Back to the main topic, I doubt U2 would add new songs for the DVD show because they would not know or cannot predict the audience reaction for those.

I'm going to hold up a Mongolian flag because that will prove I'm from Mongolia.



LMAO!

Just wait for Streets and look to the $250 seats.  Philippine flag will be there.  The one I bought is 4-feet by 8-feet.  Just google the flag so you guys know what it looks like.

My flight to LAX is in 14 hours so I am all pumped up for that.

Back to the main topic, I doubt U2 would add new songs for the DVD show because they would not know or cannot predict the audience reaction for those.

Cheers,

Now any of this would assume that the camera filming actually shows your flag.  It's not going to be shot from a blimp.  We can't just "look" where you are going to be.   ::)

The Fly would probably get a good reaction. They really nailed it last tour.

A thought just occurred to me yesterday.  What if about a 1/3 of the way through the set, Bono goes up to the microphone in between songs and says:

"And now we'd like to play a new song for you guys.  This is off our next album, and it's called "Every Breaking Wave"."

Would that be crazy or what?

U2 haven't debuted a 'new' song before recording it since 1982, so it seems unlikely.

"I Trip Through Your Wires" at the Whistle Stop was before that one was originally recorded (and before dropping the "I" from the title), but that was '86 or so.

I am sure you are right that it won't be done.

I have never understood why they don't "test drive" a few of their songs first.  They always get better after a month or so on the road, so why not use that technique to help get them in shape for recording.

It is very clear that they have played the same set to warm up and perfect the gig tonight. They love Vancouver and we treat them amazingly, any new songs will be Vancouver as tonight will be the 360 Tour forever! Vancouver will be the show with random songs! Im calling for Bad!
