You are correct. It should be organic and disconnected from anything including bling, donations, membership blah blah blah.

My words failed me, not the first time, nor the last I'm most certain.

I don't mind Bono and Edge doing 1 song acoustic. I think it's mainly just to give Larry a break, since he has a very active job onstage. But only ONE song. And it'd be nice if they did something besides Stuck, Stay or Desire. This is the one section that they could really mix it up in, because it involves little preparation, and no real light/screen production of any kind. Playing A Man and A Woman in 2011 at that Bill Clinton thing was a step in the right direction.

I read that they were working on an acoustic version of Mysterious Ways for the 360 tour. That'd be interesting.

Not as interesting as the slide solo on previous tours.

ZooTv and Popmart versions are untouchable.

If by "interesting" you mean "odd that they'd turn a sure fire win song into a bathroom break", sure.

Actually, this belongs in the WTFWERETHEYTHlNKlNG thread..

NLOTH is the best of the 2000's IMO. I even love GOYB, it's a great song with a strong riff (Lyrics aren't brilliant but I think that has been a constant issue throughout the last 3 albums).

I was surprised to see tracks such as Breathe and NLOTH removed from the last tour. I thought these were strong live tracks that never quite got the chance to achieve their potential. Also thought COL might make an appearance although slightly reworked with more dynamic feel for a live setting. I still have hope for that song.

I don't mind acoustic versions but how about trying different arrangements of songs other than just acoustic? Perhaps more electronic or orchestral? Perhaps give the slower songs a rockier feel?

No more acoustic Angel of Harlem. It's a snooze.

It worked on ZooTV, hasn't worked well since. I'd rather see When Love Comes To Town.

When was the last time Angel of Harlem was played acoustically?

That Zoo version of When Love Comes to Town is fantastic. Stripped down and raw.

remember it being included in the opening 360 shows in Barcelona (I think). I'm sure Michael Jackson got a mention as he had died around the time.

I thought of a couple more today.

The slow, acoustic (?) version of SBS -- I think they did this during Pop Mart Tour.

Also WOWY when Edge sort of goes off at the end on a semi-solo... mostly remember this from the Joshua Tree tour era.
