That would be an epic set list! I like the idea of City being fist and the second half being strictly JT! Who knows what they have planned though. They are always full of surprises.I seriously wouldn't doubt a Trump persona though after their performance of Bullet. Bono Fired Trump!

I think they'll play every song but not necessarily in any order...probably dotted around the setlist and other songs.

 

I think the rest of the set will lean heavily on War, UF and maybe a few from R&H too as it will flow better with TJT stuff rather than the more recent material. (Though I'd still expect BD and maybe One etc)

 

Anything from Pop or Zooropa is highly unlikely I'd say.

I can't wait to hear EXIT and in Gods country. I hope they play some of the B-sides from Joshua Tree too!

Love that proposed set list!  Edge said they are planning to play the album in order but not open the entire show with Streets.

 

I would also love Window on the Skies, or Walk to the Water.

Surely they need to go back to closing with 40?

Kristinlynnx, I was thinking an alter ego of Trump, a persona like he created MacPhisto and modeled the character after Ronald Reagan for ZooTV.  MacPhisto was a parody of the devil.  Those songs, Even Better Than the Real Thing, God Part II, and Desire come from a voice of someone morally questionable.  Thus, my hunch on that.  Also, he preformed at iHeart Desire and used Trump soundbites to express greed.  Just a thought....start with pointing out the complacency of popular culture, political climate, into JT which questioned the humanity of that at the time and resonates today, into the end or revolt/rebellion/strength of the masses into we are One.  40 was on my original guess as the last song a definite maybe.

Agreed, think 40 will end the show then I second guessed myself.  You're right Andy.

Think they will play for approx. 20mins then descend into darkness and as the red/orange lights come up, play the whole JT album in order - then leave the stage and return for an encore or 2.

I could see the setlist starting with a 'best of' and then flow into JT staring with ISHFWILF and saving Streets from the first encore.

 

The Edge suggested that they could include some other songs rarely played but they would have to flow within the overall arch of the setlist.

 

I'd like to see Silver and Gold, Hallelujah here she comes, Hawkmoon from that era.

 

Maybe A celebration and 11 O Clock from earlier but hope they finish with 40.

I think the time has come to start the petition for A Celebration.  It seems like the perfect time for it.

I'm just flabbergasted that Red Hill is going to be played. I can't wait to hear how they arrange it so Bono can sing it. I love that song so much, I'll volunteer as a tribute to hop up and hit the high notes for him. I do it all the time in my car. I'll be really happy if they slip Heartland in there or make any kind of nod to Pop.

I don't see it - I think these shows might be quite light on AB/Zooropa era.

 

It won't easily tie in with what looks to be a basic stage show or the overall theme. I'd expect One to get an airing or two but I even expect UTEOTW/MW/EBTTRT to be dropped for these shows ... just don't see them fitting in personally.

I was just thinking, I recall seeing somewhere on this forum that there was someone who really wanted them to play Bad and I'm sure it's been many years since they have, and the person was pessimistic about ever hearing it again. I'm willing to bet on the good possibility of that being on the playlist for this one, thinking it'll be a lot of very old stuff, everything up to and including JT  possibly being on their playlist. Let's hope!!

I think what the setlist will be divided into two parts. The first with the 11 songs of TJT and the second with more 10 or 12 songs of the others.

Bad, Stay, New Year´s Day, Pride, One, Until the end..., could be into the second part.
