Red Hill Mining Town, since it has never been played live.

 

And I want them to play the strange, sweaty music video on the big screen behind them while they perform it. Or, at the very least, wear era-appropriate clothes and wigs.

Oh, and I want the show closer to be One, then The Mothers Of The Disappeared.

 

Like they did for Popmart in Chile:

Pixel suit and Las Madres optional.

I could be wrong, but i think i have a bootleg tape buried in the basement somewhere from a 19887 or 1988 show in Chicago with Red Hill Mining Town on it.  If am remembering correctly, Bono stops the song and tells everybody to shut up for a second.  He says something like "this isn't the Beatles, its U2."  People were screaming and whooping it up.  Maybe that's why they stopped playing it.

From Joshua Tree, Trip through Your Wires and One Tree Hill.  

From other albums...  I've been waiting for the return of Last Night on Earth since PopMart.  The version from the Mexico City show is just amazing, and i thought it would have projected very well in the arena shows on the 360 tour.  Thematically, I think it fits the times.  

Oh, and Hawkmoon and God Part II.

I think that's Springhill Mining Disaster you're thinking of.

I believe you are absolutely correct.  The Peggy Seeger song.  Thanks

Oh, and I've been waiting to hear "A Sort of Homecoming" forever..

I would also love to hear live, Acrobat, Gone and there are a couple of favourites of the War album too....Don't think it'll ever happen. But that's okay, I'm happy and lucky enough to be there this year for the 30th anniversary of the JT album!!!

I always enjoy a cover song. Dancing Queen in Sweden was my favourite.

Wishful thinking with some of these but with so much flexibility and no new music to showcase , why not?
Drowning Man
A Sort of Homecoming
And to celebrate Pop Please and Discotheque

For me it has to be a proper nostalgia-fest with the music coming from the Boy, October, War, Unforgettable Fire and Joshua Tree.  The eighties were the best and U2 music was such a huge part of my teen years.  An CaT Dubh from the Boy album along with Into the Heart, Stories for boys and A day without me are my favourites.........I could go on and on through the other albums but as long as they chuck in a sneaky Party Girl at some point I'd be happy.

 

There was a rumour they may play a few tracks from their new album which, as much as I am dying to hear, I would hope they would leave that for another tour.

 

Can't wait!!  :D

Apart from the obvious JT rarities, I've been waiting 18 years to hear Angel Of Harlem live, and missed it on every tour. If you're reading this, lads, *please* can you play it at Twickenham?!
