The Next Tour: 2U2?

My girl friend and I have an idea for the next tour...
Okay, It is a selected cities tour, booked for two nights each arena, simple set, large vidi-wall behind the band as a backdrop, to show graphics from the era the song came from. The first night is a "Greatest Hits Set" know, "With or Without You","Pride" ,"Vertigo"...etc. Night two is "Underground Hits" songs that you never thought you'd"A Sort of Home Coming", "Acrobat"..."Trip Through Your Wires", "Do You Feel Loved" . - What would be your two night shows setlist...?
22 songs each night...That includes encores.

Oh yeah, name the tour....

Although that would be much better than a flat greatest hits tour, I can't see U2 bringing themselves to tour without an album to support and at least a modicum of concept behind the stage/setlist.

Fixed that for you.
Seriously, though, very nice idea. I would definitely like to hear some really rare stuff live. Disappearing Act and Zooropa, please?

Interesting idea, albeit highly improbable.

I'd like to hear "Luminous Times". I remember there was an interview before the current tour where Edge(?) mentioned it as a possible song choice this time around - not sure if he was joking.

And I think that would be a great name for the tour, as well.

It's a great idea but it won't fly.

Dividing the show into 2 14 song sets (see what I did there? do the math) where one set deals with the new album and 'sure shots' and the other set deals with fan faves and where have I had that idea before?

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."
