I'd have to review the video. But I think that "One" was it, guitar-wise for the B-Man, as he's singing a new snippet at the beginning of "...Streets...".

"Amazing Grace" is out and "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" is in.

I doubt that's permanent. Sometimes he does Random snippets, just like he did Rain at a couple of shows where it rained.

I wouldn't doubt it. Or wouldn't doubt that it will be in place for multiple shows, if not the whole leg. I don't think it was a "one off" performance.

Why? They rehearsed it. They played it at the private show the day before. They played it opening night of this leg.

Rain gets popped in when it rains. That goes back to ZOOTV and perhaps before.

Ofcourse they rehearse it if they've never played it before. And the private show was pretty much the exact same show as the Denver show, so that doesn't count.

And they didn't play it at the opening night of this leg, they played Amazing Grace on the opening night of the North American leg.

Here you go, I just compiled a list with help of U2gigs.com of Streets's intro snippets since the 2010 tour started.

Do you now see why I doubt your theory? They've changed the snippet sometimes, but the MAJORITY is still Amazing Grace. I do not see why you consider this snippet so much different.

I do think that the intro used in the last two shows is a better and refreshing choice.

It appears that they are trying to update and change some aspects of the show visually and otherwise.

Doubt if you must. Time will tell. Doesn't matter to me either way.

What makes you think this is a permanent change then? What is so special about this song that makes them use it permanently? That YOU like it more doesn't mean the band is going to use it as their standard snippet every night..


I don't get it. I just don't get it. You make a bold statement, I doubt said statement for a reason. You say I should not doubt, for a bunch of reasons. I reply explaining why those reasons aren't really solid, plus showing facts that you are likely wrong with your bold statement... and then suddenly it "does not matter to you either way"?

I don't think my statement was 'bold'. It appears they have made a change. That change was, in my view, for the better. Simple.

Time will tell.

If I am right, and they use if for a while, then great. If not, that is fine too. Either way, I still love and respect you.

.. If you would read what I compiled for you, this isn't anything new. They made that "change" 12 times before. Of the 45 times, Amazing Grace got played 33 times. The remaining 12 times were mostly randomly picked songs. Sure, Rain when it was raining heavily, or MOTD in Chile, But also a variety of Beatles songs, and even in Mexico, the city before Denver, they did a random intro as well. I just don't get why you have to insist that this is different and special. I really just don't get it.

My point exactly. New. Simple. Gorgeous. The Falcon AND the choice of intro tune.

For what it's worth, the snippets tonight were a tribute to Dylan, whose birthday it was.

Blowin' In The Wind (snippet) / The Times, They Are A-Changin' (snippet)
