Let's talk about the set list/ Set List [merged]

Recommended Posts

Not a bad stab at the set list..I like some of the choices outside the Tree...BUT, this is big...they Had BETTER live up to it, and make t his EPIC!, otherwise whats the point?...from a band that never wanted to look back, etc....THIS is there shot to go all out to to the diehards, make that magical setlist within the constructs of a thematic adventure...We've talked about his for 20 yrs plus,,...If our not doing new music, bring the house...ala Roger Waters/Floyd...where you incorporate the Tree celebration throughout a 120 minute set....never knowing what song will be played until the moment it fits...I personally DO not NEED to hear the Fuckin Tree in its entirety AGAIN...THAT would be boring....truthfly, i'm only excited about tracks 5-12 at this point!!...so much potential BUT...they had better incorporate Seconds into the set, and i see acrobat ending the show.....there's a lot to ponder but...they better get it done proper!  30yrs......30yrs?....Most of us we'll be dead in another 30.....THIS is the time to do a fucked up setlist off the charts for die hards!! If only for the summer before that companion thing EVER gets released!!...Lets see it guys!! locked and loaded!!! I'm waiting!!!  :D

You guys think we might see Mr Macphisto back at it again it'd be dope for sure he could call the White House or turnp

It could happen. It something U2 will have to think heavily on how they don't want to exactly piss off some fans and Bono might have to ask, "Am I buggin ya??" "Don't mean to bug yah" Since they are some fans who aren't exactly behind U2 and their politics. lol 

 

Even so...like someone said. Window's In The Skies, Walk To The Water, Spanish Eyes, Heartland,  Luminous Times.(Hold On To Love)....B-sides.

 

No chance at mawhatevr......if that happnes I'm done, guy richie fired and Bono and co are tested for methanphethmines

U2.com should have a U2 setlist contest. 

Pick 24-30 songs that U2 will perform. 

Whoever is closest to the set U2 choose gets some excellent prize. 

 

Here's the set I'm betting on...

 

Zoo Station 

Vertigo 

Elevation 

Even Better Than The Real Thing

Mysterious Ways

I Will Follow

Sunday Bloody Sunday

Every Breaking Wave (full band this time) 

Until The End Of The World 

New Year's Day

Gloria 

City Of Blinding Lights

Beautiful Day

 

Where The Streets Have No Name

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

With Or Without You

Bullet The Blue Sky

Running To Stand Still

Red Hill Mining Town 

In God's Country

Trip Through Your Wires

One Tree Hill

Exit

Mothers Of The Disappeared

 

Desire

Angel Of Harlem 

Out Of Control

 

One

MLK/Pride (In The Name Of Love)

 

Bad/"40"

Interesting, and certainly a possibility. Get the crowd involved immediately with hits and then segue to JT. I like it.

 

However, my critique is too many later hits (I like, but don't see them playing).

 

Zoo Station will be saved for AB anniversary tour. Elevation will be played on occasion, but not a staple. I also see the integration of 2-3 songs from SOI, and perhaps one from forthcoming SOE.

 

It's a tough call, as Edge mentioned in the article.

 

I'm predicting songs from ATYCLB will not be regularly included, and perhaps only two from AB, Mysterious Ways and . . . End of the World? They love EOTW. So I don't see how they skip that.

 

Silver and Gold might get some regular inclusion.

 

New Year's Days is kind of now or never. So I agree on its inclusion.

The friend I'm going with said they'd only be concentrating on the JT era but apparently that's wrong, would love to hear Bad, they didn't play that in NYC. Also New Year's Day would be awesome!!! I was in high school and that's the song that finally really focused my attention on them! Also I'd much rather they stuck to older stuff...

Here's my best guess. Band typically plays between 24 - 26 songs. The Joshua Tree will take 11 slots. Edge doesn't think they will open with Streets, but they will play the entire album in order. I think they will go for some deeper and darker cuts that "go with the times we are in". They'll also stay away from some cuts that will be in the second run of the I&E Tour.

 

Setlist:

 

Desire

VertIgo

God Part II

Seconds

Where the Streets Have No Name

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

With or Without You

Bullet the Blue Sky

Running to Stand Still

Red Hill Mining Town

In God's Country

Trip Through Your Wires

One Tree Hill

Exit

Mothers of the Disappeared

(Wild Applause)

City of Blinding Lights

A Sort of Homecoming

Out of Control

Pride (In the Name of Love)

Beautiful Day

 

Encore:

 

Acrobat ("don't let the bastards get you down")

One

Bad

40

 

There are some substitutions that can be made to the set, mostly older material that reflects how they feel we've come full circle. So, not a lot from No Line or SOI.

 

Looking forward to seeing them at Gillette in Boston in June. Have my GA tickets. I am disappointed that it's not the I&E Tour Round 2, supporting SOE. I think they're excuse is complete BS, and they're cowards for not releasing SOE as promised. But c'est la vie. U2 in concert on a bad night is better than most of the crap we're fed by lazy labels, promoters and radio stations.

As much as I love post-Joshua songs and albums (and I truly do) I don't think they should play anything post-Joshua Tree!

 

The first half should be selected from Boy, October, War and the Unforgettable Fire; the point being, it's all building up to the Joshua Tree. 

 

Then the second half should be the Joshua Tree; in a live order; something like this...

 

Streets

Still Haven't Found

Trip Through Your Wires

In God's Country

Red Hill Mining Town

One Tree Hill

Exit

Bullet

Running

With or Without You

Mother's of the Disappeared

 

With a Joshua Tree B-side encore:

Silver and Gold

Spanish Eyes

Luminous Times?

Walk to the Water?

Deep in the Heart?

End on "40" ?
