I don't even see the crowd and their reaction during this song, I'm too busy letting the song wash over me.

^what no spoken words said, up there. It's AMAZING and performed beautifully. If the majority of the crowd don't recognize it and can only get excited over hearing Elevation and Vertigo, screw 'em. And the comment about pacing is a great's such a sexy, smokey song. The change in tempo is fantastic.

I'm a diehard fan and on the one hand I'm excited they have dug deep and brought these songs back.

On the other, An Cat Dubh has never been my favourite of the oldies or anywhere even close to that live. It's just....okay. I'd rather hear Electric Co or Gloria every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

But I won't bitch about its inclusion either.

I couldnt care less about the casual fan not knowing the song. They are playing it for the long term & die hard fans IMO.
An example of a fan I came across was outside the LA sports arena. I turned up too late to get in. I asked a guy after the show if they played "an cat dubh" his reply "whats that"

I heard them play An Cat Dubh in '83. It wasn't one of my favorites then and isn't now. However, I love the fact that they are reaching back into the song book and playing things that us more "mature" fans remember.

ACD/ITH are two of the best tracks of Boy and some of Edge;s finest guitar playing of the era. U2 are da man for bringing it back and I'll be thanking my lucky stars if they still play it by the time I'm around. F*** casual fans! If they don't like it get lost so real fans can go instead.
