Make the worst setlist possible

Following on from Cobbs, what is the worst possible setlist U2 could do? I don't just mean a list of your least favourite songs, but a setlist with overplayed songs (even if they're good), in a bad order, with stupid guest appearances.

Let's say the band are doing a big, one-off show in a location of your choosing. 24 songs. Mostly electric, though you can have an acoustic segment if you wish. It's a one-off gig, so songs that would suck on a long tour could be quite funny as a one-off; people would talk years later about "what about that show with that hilarious performance of Elvis Ate America", so probably not what you want to include.

Basically, make a setlist where it seems like U2 had a stroke and forgot everything about how to do a good live performance.

U2 Live at Stuart Park, Wollongong

1. The Ocean (Bono's mum story) -->
2. Miss Sarajevo
3. Elevation
4. Where the Streets Have No Name (Africa flags intro, with Molly Meldrum)
5. Crazy Tonight remix
6. Ordinary Love (dedicated to Mark Latham)
7. Bullet the Blue Sky (Vertigo Tour version) -->
8. Stuck in a Moment (duet with Michael Hutchence hologram) -->
9. Into the Heart
10. MLK
11. Wake Up Dead Man
12. One Step Closer
13. Yahweh
---Adam and Larry leave stage---
14. Every Breaking Wave (piano version)
---acoustic set---
15. Miami (with Bernard Fanning) -->
16. Vertigo (with Karl Stefanovic and Kochie)
17. Lemon
---Adam and Larry return---
18. Get on Your Boots

19. Walk On (with Schapelle Corby on stage)
20. Crumbs From Your Table (with bellydancer, gesturing to stomach whenever Bono sings the title line)
21. Window in the Skies (Bono brings two drunk elderly men on stage to sing with him)

22. With or Without You (no Edge)
23. Get Out of Your Own Way -->
--- Hilltop Hoods do Kendrick's lines---
24. American Soul (with American flag, but outline of Australia [no Tasmania] in place of stars)

Yes, I made this thread just because I had the thought of Bono bringing Schapelle Corby on stage during Walk On and cracked up laughing, and went from there.

There is a lot of Australiana in there.

You left out 'One' where Oxfam backpacker chuggers circle the stage illuminating the band with their ipads raised high...






Which they will only do on opening night and never again.

Bono brings on Tony Abbott and Bill Shorten during his "from the right to the left!" speech and makes them shake hands and dance awkwardly during Pride.

He also seems unaware that Tony Abbott is no longer prime minister.

Loving the ending to that show. Also Bono can be dressed as Lincoln's Ghost for GOOYOW.

Hahaha that's a good one. Love the random JT Tour covers intro being given another go, and somehow worse.

Kinda surprised this has not actually happened.

Nothing but hip hop collaborations and Jacknife Lee remixes.

The audience will be begging for "Elvis Ate America."

You could use that for almost every thread I've made.

The Schapelle Corby thing still cracks me up though.

Malcolm Roberts takes the floor for a musical closing number, a cover of Cliff Richard's 'Living Doll'.

That's a play on 'Living Soul' for you kids at home.

"Edge, I thought you said you wanted 'Malcolm Turnbull' to guest on the closing musical number, a cover of Cliff Richard's 'Living Doll'".
