God Part II/Desire. Probebly my favorite opening combo ever.

Followed by

Hawkmoon 269/Desire

I also thought Zoo Station/The Fly worked well together.

It makes me really happy that they retired Mysterious Ways and With or Without You for most of the final Elevation leg. Because they don't feel nearly as tired, now. Just like if they hold off on UTEOTW, it will sound really great upon return.

Great choices!

Though personally, I can't list Desire without adding All Along The Watchtower, and I figured I better stick to two-song combinations ...

Desire --> All Along The Watchtower

God Part II and Hawkmoon 269 were grossly underused as openers. Adam's bass and Edge's slide solo respectively were sensational.

By the way, another opening combo worthy of mention is The Ocean --> 11 O'clock Tick Tock from the early days. Though it was even better in reverse as 11 O'clock Tick Tock --> The Ocean closing concerts. I'd love to see the band close a show with 11 O'clock Tick Tock --> The Ocean --> 40.

I absolutely agree, Axver. The extra-long outtro on The Ocean they did (at least) a coupel of times in the Ocbober era (I think) was really cool, and it shares enough similarities with 40 that I think the segue could work very very well indeed.

Yeah, it's like, "how can I miss you if you won't go away?" They should cycle their standards to keep 'em fresh.

I would rather have Two Hearts Beat As One than Mysterious Ways. MW is another song along with WOWY, Sunday Bloody Sunday and I Will Follow that I'm just tired of hearing.

'Segued', not 'melted' dear Axver.



And Mysterious ways never has to be played again in my eyes. Dated and mediocre.
