Also, if they don't do another DVD for the 360 tour, they should do one for this.

Thats very optimistic. Some of those definately won't be played. They'll do about 18 maybe? and all the biggest hits. Maybe 1 surprise for the u2 nutters here hopefullywink.gif

I'm not making a prediction, because I don't want to be disappointed if they don't play the songs I want them to play. Also, I don't want to 'want' them to play certain songs, because I'm not going and it's what the crowd want to hear.
rather selfish pete? were you going to go, because judging by your responce to my thread on glasto and this, there seems to be a feel of sour grapes...

Pete, I agree with you on not "wanting" songs to be played at a show you're not at.

 

But this is different, this is special, this is U2 headlining Glastonbury!!!!

 

We'll all be tuning in for this one, and since the broadcast the gig, we'll at least all get to be a little part of it.

 

As for the setlist, I'm with Mac and Utwo. There's no way they're playing 25 songs - hell they don't even do that at their own shows.

 

I would also think that your Miss Sarajevos, Mercys and North Stars won't even be considered.

 

If the fair-weather fans go to get a beer during these songs at an actual U2 concert, it would be fricken madness to play them to a crowd that's not your own.  80000 peeps standing there during "Your Blue Room" with their arms folded saying ...

 

"what's this shit?? Play the bloody Ipod song!!!"

 

My guess is they will play a 15 song main set, with a 3 song encore.

 

It will be nothing but the biggest popular hits, and if there's any surprises, they will be the "other" hits that have not made an appearance on the 360 Tour - Gloria, Out Of Control, Real Thing etc or some of the rare gems like All I Want Is You.

 

 - that being said if they decide to leave AIWIY as the special treat for the Aussies, that's fine with me!
