Could Love and Peace replace Bullet live?

Bullet is a staple and there probably is plenty of room for the two but I get the feeling that this is a new era and this may be a fitting exchange on the set list. Also, Edge could play a bad ass solo live on this one.

It sounds to me very similar to UTEOTW, but I wouldn't want them replacing UTEOTW. But they would go good back to back.

I dont think they would replace bullet either, but I definately prefer LOPOE to Bullet!

I have a feeling it will follow Exit.

Anyone else think that some Joshua Tree songs no longer played live could come back and sound great with these songs? Like Exit and One Tree Hill?

That would be sweet!

I think they're going to change it up a bit this time around.

This may sound silly, but I think if this song is ever a single, that it would be cool to see a video set back in the prohibition era in America. U2 as gangsters. Fedora's zoot suits, whatever.

Just gives me a Chicago-bluesy feel. Love the song.

As for replacing Bullet? Nah. Bullet might not be played anyhow, but Bullet is sort of an angry song, I don't think this song is angry, I think it's sort of a plea for sanity. A little cry for joy out of despair.

I don't know, whatever.

Probably not, I would guess.

I like the irony of the song title

anti-violence being potrayed in a video as the band with some teeth and tommy guns.

You see, the emphasis is on the "Or Else" part.

It should replace Bullet. That song is already old and tired while LAPOE is fresh and stronger than Bullet.

Cheers,

LPOE could easily become the new encore-opener in much the same way as BTBS & Discoteque. I really hope BTBS stays.

But LPOE could also be transformed into a b-stage semi-acoustic song - like Desire on recent tours.
