I didn't think you were complaining; not at all.  I want Wild Horses and Little Things.  It is what is is, however; I did not see your comment as negative..  I'm bummed they took October off the list.  Such are the hazards of knowing previous set lists for shows, I guess.  

I made it out to Vegas Night Two from Sacramento, and it was a really special performance, better than San Jose in my opinion.  BUT...  no Red Flag Day hurt me, especially after it was played Night One, which I didn't see.  I speculated that it was dropped to generate more time for Bono to talk, seeing as he did seem to talk more than usual.

I was hoping they'd fill the "missing" song slot by putting back Wild Horses on the back end, but no such luck.

One thing I have noticed is that, with the exception of Acrobat, I much prefer the first half of the set to the second half, even though I still enjoy the second half.

And yes, I wish that Little Things could find its way into the current tour.   I mean, I could put together my own dream set list, with about 5 songs swapped out, but Little Things should be a no-brainer for the SoE tour.

Love is bigger than anything in its way.

Yes. Yes. Yes.   I am very surprised they are not doing it.  Same with 5 songs.  I'd replace The Ocean with Gone.  The only other part of the first half I'm not sure of is I Will Follow.  It was just okay for TJT but it was the final song of the show. Being in a stadium, people starting leaving early in larger numbers.  (argh) It's still U2 so I loved it but it doesn't make sense to me after The Lights of Home. It will be interesting to see how they do that. (no spoilers, please)  Indoors that song is so different and with the screen it must make sense.  I'd rather hear another song.  I'd like to see Landlady take the same role that Song for Someone had in the SOI tour.so take out I Will Follow and I like the first half for my dream setlist.  I love it ending with Until the End of the World.

Second half:   Take out Staring at the Sun; put Little Things before GOOYOW. .  Put Wild Horses before COBL.  That's a great second half for me.  I would like Crumbs over COBL but I'd like Miracle Drug even more.  I wonder if it's fairly easy or difficult for them to come up with the setlist.  Oh to be a fly on the wall.  Oops...Now I want The Fly too. and it should somehow go with Acrobat.  How many songs is that?  Why isn't the show four and a half hours like Bruce?  I'm just joking.but now I want October put back into the show somehow too and what about Zoo Station because Vertigo was how many years ago and I haven't heard it since so I want Zoo Station, darn it and What about All I Want Is You?  They did it on the BBC!   I'm just kidding but serious at the same time.  Four and a half hours, please.  I'll wait for thirty minutes so you can rest but can you sign my Joshua Tree vinyls?  Each could sign his own and that would be sweet. I'll send them backstage so you don't have to fret about meeting me.   Okay.  NOW I have my dream show.  My gosh.  That was exhausting.  I need to go lie down and take some Tylenol.  I'm just kidding.

 think I'll just hope and beg and plead the powers that be over U2 shows while being very, very thankful if they do Little Things and Wild Horses.

What about All I Want Is You

I was REALLY hoping to hear that this tour, too. The BBC performance got my hopes up. Drop All Because of You, and then add All I Want is You. :)

It sure is fun to do that....I was doing other stuff and coming back to my post for about three hours last night/early morning before I could narrow it down, make it at least a bit cohesive and decide which songs.  It's our dream setlist according to their established one for this tour.  It's been a while since I've heard Gone.  I love that song live.   Anyhow-now you know what I was trying to precipitate.  In no way did I see your comment as negative.  It's all good and fun in the end.

Can someone please tell me the story behind this picture?   Also, did someone propose on the stage for this show?  If so, does anyone know if it is the gentleman who had it in his profile status update (or whatever they care called) who go to do it?  The discotechque hat guy was on the Paris IE show, yes?  He must be looking at/putting on her ring, so I presume they got engaged?

This is the one song I recorded in full for the night on the B Stage.  The rest I could live without.

I had a perfect view of the entire band, especially Edge during the solo!

said with humor:  So you mean I have to spend 86 minutes to get the answer to a question when you could have typed it in one?  Yikes.  There are four more unanswered questions in my post, dude. You need to stop or I'm gonna miss the Chicago shows.  haha

It's funny when they introduce his wife as Cool Chick/Teacher/Wife or something similar; Cool Chick being of primary importance.  Very funny.  I did not know about this film..  I'm looking forward to viewing the rest of it after dinner.  Thank you.

Wait, did you get married at the show? Congrats! I was at the show, I didn't realize. How awesome!
