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

Recommended Posts

I think I got it......

 

Since this is a "Throwback" tour of sorts......U2 has to go through the time machine....and chronicle where they came from, and how they matured to the point of "Joshua Tree"...which will be the centerpiece of the show....and where that maturity brought them to.

 

With that in mind...I envision a "chronology" that takes them right up to 2018 and "Songs of Experience".....Of course, not everything can be represented. Sorry if you're a big "Pop" fan  :rolleyes:

 

 

 

Here's how I imagine the setlist to play out.

 

 

 

SET ONE (11 Songs)

 

I Will Follow

Gloria

Sunday Bloody Sunday

New Year's Day

A Sort Of Homecoming

Bad.........

----Side one of JT-----red screen, organ buildup

Streets

Still Haven't Found

With Or Without You

Bullet The Blue Sky

Running to Stand Still

 

BREAK-INTERMISSION

 

SET TWO (12 songs)

 

----Side two of JT----easy opening with

Red Hill Mining Town

In God's Country

Trip Through Your Wires

One Tree Hill

Exit

Mothers Of The Disappeared

----wild applause, but gotta rock it out, so....

Until The End Of The World

Acrobat

**Stay (Faraway So Close)     **---acoustic version on "B" Stage

**Stuck In A Moment

**Sometimes You Can't Make It

**Every Breaking Wave

 

Encores (2 songs)

 

Miracle (of Joey Ramone)

One

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

 

won't happen . . . until 2021 and the AB anniversary tour

I like the thinking, and ultimately you are right. They will unlikely stick to 80s songs.

 

So here's my question.

 

Will any one show include only songs from 1980 through 1989 (minus a SOE throw-in)?

 

I say yes.

 

They will try it at least once

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

 

no offense, but, yes, i want the whole album four times at all four concerts!

Today Rolling Stone posted an interesting interview with Adam where he discusses the tour, setlist possibilities, and the Experience album.  In terms of the setlist, he admits that they haven't started working on it yet but here are a couple of interesting comments...

"I spoke to Edge a few weeks ago. He wasn't sure the show was going to start with "Streets" and go right into the album. How do you see that happening?

'We haven't really sat down and worked out the dynamics of it yet, but I suspect it would sit as the crown in the show. I think we would definitely want to open with perhaps something that is not dissimilar to the Songs of Innocence run [where we did our early 1980s songs] and get people in the mood for this thing that's coming and you give some sense of history of where it came from. Then it'll be a scene change. … This is my guess. We won't know until we start playing it around quite a bit. We will either start with "Streets," or end with it, I might think, but there will be a scene change. Whether or not we go completely in sequence, we've yet to work out'..."

"I imagine one challenge in playing it in sequence is the four most famous songs are the first four. Then there's seven straight that are lesser-known to a mass audience. Doing them all in a row could be a challenge in a stadium. Do you worry about that?

'Umm … I think we really have to wait and see. I think anyone that's coming to that show clearly knows that record well. What we would need to figure out is whether that's a suite of songs [and] with our new knowledge of 30 years hence we could breathe life into them in a different way, or whether we kind of bundle them together with some other songs that are thematically in keeping with those. Again, I wish I could be more positive with that, but we aren't that far down the line. We have the aspiration, but we haven't quite figured out how it'll happen. But it will happen and we always toy around and experiment until it feels right.'"

 

This is how I see it playing out too.

 

But for early 80s songs, I don't know that they will play the SOI grouplet.

 

NYD will be a must.

 

Wait.

 

What if they open with

 

I will follow

Bloody Sunday

NYD

 

That's it.

 

The might do something crazy like that because they love getting the crowd going

We could spend the next few months debating the setlist so i'm not going to predict. I'm personally going to Croke Park so hope/expect to hear A Sort of Homecoming and am desperately hoping they play Bad , they've been really selective about dropping it in over the last few tours and it should be a mainstay in my opinion. I'd love to hear them drop some bombs from the early 80's and would have problems with my underwear if they went back to the "a day without me/i threw a brick" combo.  The anticipation is killing me !!!!!

Indeed. Realised though I went a tad radical and dropped 'Pride' from the set list to fit in Zoo Station. That has to be a coin toss. ;)
