Make the current setlist worse

Two rules.

1) take one of the 24-song sets they've played at the last few dates.
2) make it worse by substituting certain songs

Caveat: can't be bringing in bullshit like Red Light or The Refugee or Elvis Ate America, since those would actually be a blast because they'd be something different. It has to be within the realms of possibility.

Winner, as decided by me, not by popular vote, I will send $1 via paypal.

1. Love is All We Have Left
2. The Blackout
3. Lights of Home
4. I Will Follow
5. All Because of You
6. Beautiful Day
7. The Ocean
8. Iris
9. Cedarwood Road
10. Sunday Bloody Sunday
11. Until the End of the World

12. Elevation
13. Vertigo
14. Desire
15. Ordinary Love
16. You're the Best Thing About Me
17. Every Breaking Wave
18. Pride
19. Get Out Own Way
20. American Soul
21. City of Blinding Lights

22. One
23. Love is Bigger
24. 13

Beat that.

I forgot about Invisible. Walk On over COBL is good. And subbing out UTEOTW. You’ve done well. But Scarlet is a really good inclusion.

Ah but you not recall just how boring Scarlet to Walk On was during 360? Note, Scarlet has taken down Pride from my set, so Bono can give his human rights icon skit to someone else. Preferably not Aung San Suu Kyi this time.

Good responses everyone. I will now go through and give my thoughts.

I forgot about Song for Someone! Brilliant inclusion. EBW instead of Love is Bigger, well done. Miss Sarajevo... if Bono does Pavarotti's part, which is a possibility, it's a show-stopper, so you've done well, but not as bad as it could be.

Very good, especially the demotion of the one good song in the setlist (UTEOTW) to intermission. Inspired. Two good inclusions from NLOTH, but the lack of Vertigo is striking, and what I said above about MS still stands... maybe you replace MS with Vertigo at the end there.

Don't @ me
I will @ you, because this is frontrunner so far. Your replacement of UTEOTW with The Miracle is exactly the sort of idea I was looking for. Extremely well done. Still, there's holes to be picked. In a Little While is a good song, we just all started hating it thanks to 360. And whilst Vertigo x2 is a good callback to another good meme, it ends the show on too much of an upbeat note. Best so far, but it can be worse.

This is pretty bad. I'm not sure if you ignored my rules or didn't see them, but the blatant deletion of two entire songs is quite bold. Unfortunately for you, Stuck has a lovely ending, this still has UTEOTW and if Crazy Tonight is the remix, then I'm happy with it. Not bad.

But we can all do worse! Keep pushing people

I'm really tempted to bring in one of Stingray Guitar, Glastonbury or North Star, but I think they're all too far outside the realms of possibility sadly.

I was probably inspired by a second night shorter setlist.

Well they did start this tour playing both Song For Someone and 13, so don't put it past them.

I think those songs are sufficiently Part A/Part B, not Version A/Version B.
