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

Recommended Posts

I would lose my friggin' mind if they played "Acrobat" and "Sweetest Thing" anywhere but those two making an appearance with "Please" leading into The Joshua Tree portion of the set would probably send me into cardiac arrest.

 

I mean, it'd be worth it. But don't be surprised if that's the set and you read the news item...

I think the staging and production this time will dictate the setlist. If it's a basic staging design (by their standards) I think some of the heavy production songs like COBL for example might finally be dropped for this show. As its hard to imagine them being played now without a big production.

 

But given that their big stadium shows and already playing an album in full, which is very hard to do especially playing the album in sequence without causing a lull in the audience. A lot of casual fans will be in those stadiums who love the album but never paid much attention to the second half.

I think they would focus more on the 80s stuff...I don't think much of AB, Zooropa or Pop will be included, but more of Boy, October, War, TUF and Rattle and Hum, B-sides and rare songs..

There will likely be some more recent songs from the last 15 years that might fit in with the tone of The Joshua Tree material, but just have a feeling a lot of the 90s stuff won't be included this tour, just a theory though...

 

  1. A Sort of Homecoming - this will surprise everyone:)
  2. Out Of Control
  3. I Will Follow
  4. Vertigo 
  5. Elevation
  6. New Year's Day
  7. City Of Blinding Lights
  8. Tomorrow
  9. Desire
  10. Sunday Bloody Sunday
  11. People Get Ready/The Sweetest Thing
  12. Gloria 
  13. October/Wave of Sorrow
  14. The Unforgettable Fire
  15. Beautiful Day
  16. All I Want Is You
  17. Where The Streets Have No Name
  18. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
  19. With Or Without You
  20. Bullet The Blue Sky
  21. Running To Stand Still
  22. Red Hill Mining Town 
  23. In God's Country
  24. Trip Through Your Wires
  25. One Tree Hill

Oooooh yes, Please into Streets....I just got chills.  Love your setlist prediction because if includes songs we haven't heard live in a very long time, perhaps another nod to the retrospective of the tour?  I know some people on the forum think time either pre-Joshua Tree with little post, or your evolution of great songs not heard that surrounding JT, or a real theme of politics...I think the boys are going to hit hard about social consciousness and questioning politics a majority spoke in elections on Brexit, Trump etc... the music will surround that as a theme is my prediction.  We know JT was about their exploration into American music and subsequent tour/creation of Rattle and Hum which should naturally make appearances on this tour but the boys have a knack of storytelling and creating segments of song lists to do that on their tours...that will dictate the setlist...yes?

Not sure on running order but I'm going to say the following - 

 

TJT - 11 Tracks

 

Vertigo

Beautiful Day

Cedarwood Road

Every Breaking Wave

Sweetest Thing

Pride

Bad

Sunday Bloody Sunday

I Will Follow

All I Want Is You

40

Desire

One

 

That makes 24 tracks. But I think its the most likely scenario - I don't expect many surprises considering the number of tracks from TJT they will be playing for the first time in a very long time.

 

These will probably be in rotation - Elevation, SFS, Stuck In a Moment, Angel of Harlem, MLK, NYD, TUF

 

I think Acrobat MIGHT get played but think they could save that if the SOE tour kicks off again.

5 or 6 songs pre Josua tree then into the Jousha Tree.

 

With an encore of 5 or 6 post Joshua Tree to finish .  Where  this will be tricky for the band is that for 8 songs following With Or Without You they will have to play no singles, the purists amongst us will be in our element however the casual fan may lose interest.
