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.

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.
