Dear U2,

 

May I humbly request you dust off the Ol' Curtis Mayfield gospel tune, People Get Ready. Only performed once since 2001 (with the Boss?), the tune was one of your staples during Joshua Tree Tour 1.0. So what better way to add an touch of authenticity to the current tour than by adding it back into the setlist?

 

 

As a fallback request, can you perform it at least one time this summer, preferably in Pasadena or Chicago?

 

Yours Truly,

 

Kiss the Sky

What song did they walk onto the stage to- if any?

 

Depending on the performance - sometimes they started with Streets, in others they walked on with the lights still full up, with John Lennon's version of Stand By Me on the PA - they joined in and then faded out the JL version and finished the song.
