Elevation is a great song, and was a great tour opener, but i agree its time to replace it, the same with Bullet The Blue Sky

Bring Twilight, Acrobat and Dirty Day

"Twilight!" Great song

I love Elevation. I don't want them to replace it at all.

I do want them to get rid of Pride, Bullet and Sunday Blooday Sundy though, Booorriinng.

I was totally into the Elevation performance of San Diego 2 when I heard it. Definitely better than the 1st show. I hope it's played on through the rest of the tour , esp mid-Nov.

Hey those are three of the top four long shots I wanted to hear! Twilight is ridiculously good. I would lose it if they actually played that song. And Dirty Day is the best song on Zooropa.

UTEOTW would be a great substitute for Elevation for 3 reasons.

1) As noted, this show works in little trilogies of songs. The trilogy to which Elevation has been assigned is currently simply a "hard rocking" trilogy. UTEOTW rocks hard.

2) It would then become an Achtung Baby trifecta as well.

3) Though everyone knows the encores are coming, UTEOTW sounds like a song that could end of the set. It is climactic, and the final lines sound like the natural end of a set to me. So yeah.

You want to retire a song that is one album old?

There are better songs from All That You Can't Leave Behind that could be played. Sheesh, they could go back to the rehearsal setlist and push Vertigo into the slot Elevation is in, and then play something else in its place earlier, Kite, Walk On, New York, etc. Or just keep Beautiful Day and leave the rest of the album behind. I mean, there were quite a few shows on Elevation when no POP tunes were played, and NO Zooropa songs made it onto Popmart

Perhaps we could delve into the black arts and use a spell to give it a mortal physical form. Then it could be destroyed bloodily.

I've said it once and I'll say it again: If you don't like Elevation, you don't like U2.

I love your idea about replacing it in the setlist with UTEOTW, though Unforgettable Lemon.

they did NOT screw it up in SD2

the screw up in SD1 was that Larry jumped in with the drums too early, so it forced bono go into "A star lit up like a cigar".. while in SD2 they kept the guitar solo going with Bono singing "A mole digging in a hole..." verse before they went full band

chiiill...I was stating a fact. Elevation is a U2 song, and if you don't like it, you idirectly don't like U2. Take that however you want.

U2 and their songs are seperate entities. Not liking something U2 has done does not mean one does not like U2, not in the least. It just mean that one has a more objective perspective with the artist's body of work.
