What percentage of a chance does "Mercy" have of being played on this tour?

I'd say roughly 5%. It's a shame, but this great song most likely will not see the stage until it's either A) Released the next or future albums B) Released as a stand-alone single for some sort of promotion ala Electrical Storm...or C) Used as a b-side to an upcoming HTDAAB single.

I really would like to witness this song live on this tour. I think it would make an excellent opener for the Encore.

What are your thoughts?

I think it's a great song too, especially since it's "unfinished" - imagine the polished, final version? That said, I think it has no chance of being played on this tour. It seems too good to be a b-side, so it's probably gonna turn up on the next album. U2 tends to be a greatest hits/new album material performer, so I doubt they'd play an unreleased song as opposed to the numerous hits/favorites.

That's not a bad idea, someone on Elevation brought signs that said play Kite and they started playing it. Maybe I should bring a sign that sais "Play Acrobat".

I'm encouraging everyone to make "Show us MERCY" signs to bring to the concerts. I'd also advise anyone who talks to band members before and/or after the shows to tell them how amazing the song is and how it could be a live classic.

They won't know we love the song if we don't tell them, and that's the first step.

Personally, I think we need a "Play anything from October" campaign. That album should not be forgotten.

If for some strange, strange reason UTEOTW is not played and doesnt lead into NYD (which it has the last three tours), they should bring back "October" right before NYD. That was amazing.

Correct me if im wrong, but is the band even aware of the fact that we know about Mercy??

It was U2SJ who brought the song here, so as long as they dont check the internet they wont know

thats why i said some "strange, strange" reason. There's no way UTEOTW will not be played.

It's my favorite live u2 song ever

Mercy won't be played on this tour but I like the idea of everyone letting the band know how much we think the songs kicks ass. Maybe it'll be included on the next album? Let's hope.

I have a copy of Mercy, but I haven't listened to it yet. Just from the lyrics, I can tell it is awesome though. I guess I'm going to keep it as a treat once the thrill of HTDAAB wears off (which hasn't happened yet). But even though I haven't listened to it yet, I like the "Show us MERCY" and "PLAY MERCY" signs!
