STATIC SETLISTS PLAGUE THIS TOUR ALREADY
Was Adam lying when he said each show will feel "completely different" with 2 completely different setlists ?
Only 1 of the first 13 songs last night in San Jose changed ?
Was this just a ploy to help sell slow ticket sales in the US ?
How could they not play California ? in California is beyond me.
We all know that U2 likes to play it safe and repeat the same setlist most nights as it takes them a long time to practice and "nail" the songs but this is a complete farce.
Why are they still playing Pride and Sunday Bloody Sunday and With or Without You ? This is not supposed to be a greatest hits tour ! Despite the fact that these are very easy songs to play live for them since they have played them over and over on every tour and don't need to be rehearsed. Why don't they play something new and exciting like Boy Falls From The Sky, Mercy, Lady With the Spinning Head. Play some new songs that have never been played live before in the US like God Part II, Heartland, Hawkmoon 269, Lemon, When I Look At The World. Use Zoo Station as an encore and use the big screen as a big TV and do the Bono kick maybe even bring back the George Bush rap as an intro.? Why stick with the same old stuff like Mysterious Ways and Real Thing ? You played this every show on 360 ? Bring back the fan favorites All I Want Is You and Kite, Wild Horses (Zoo TV Tour full band version), Mothers of the Disappeared, Love Is Blindness, So Cruel, Red Hill Mining Town and Acrobat (voted most requested song on u2.com by the fans that has apparently fallen on deaf ears)
I guess they have just decided to play it safe and sell out and this is there way of trying to get new fans instead of playing for the loyal fans that go to more than a few shows per tour.
Come on U2 Shake It Up ! Shake Shake Hey how about playing A Celebration ? Gotta Go Gotta Go....The Fly also ?
